McLaren has announced production plans for a special edition 650S Coupe and
Spider, featuring even more carbon fiber and a more aggressive look.
Just 50 examples of the MSO 650S will be available globally, available in either a Coupe or Spider bodystyle. The production car will make its global debut, in Spider form, at this summer's Goodwood Festival of Speed in the Supercar Paddock, and will be seen in action taking part in the famous Hill run.
The bespoke McLaren Special Operations division was launched in 2011, and offers a full personalization service for McLaren owners. The dedicated division grew out of McLaren's Customer Care program, which goes back 20 years to the days of the McLaren F1 roadcar, and continues to look after servicing and maintaining cherished F1s for owners, as well as undertaking personalization work for all McLaren models.
The exterior of the McLaren 650S MSO is fitted with a number of carbon fiber styling upgrades with a satin finish, including extended MSO Side Blades giving a subtle and purposeful look. The three-piece rear bumper includes a carbon fiber center section, and sits above a more aggressive rear diffuser.
The 650S MSO is available in three paint finishes, specially formulated by the bespoke division of McLaren Automotive, all featuring a heavy metallic content. 'Papaya Spark' is the modern twist on the famous McLaren Orange and is joined by 'Agrigan Black' and 'Sarigan Quartz'. 'Agrigan Black' is a stylish metallic black with a deep ruby red metallic flake, and featured on the original concept, while 'Sarigan Quartz' is a new color for MSO, being shown for the first time at Goodwood Festival of Speed. It is a vibrant metallic silver with a subtle golden infusion.
The exterior design is finished with a set of Palladium colored 10-spoke Super Lightweight alloy wheels, with a unique diamond cut effect to the inside edge of each spoke. These wheels save 9 lb (4 kg) over the standard-fit design, and are held in place by lightweight titanium wheel bolts.
Inside the cabin, the 2015 McLaren 650S MSO is upholstered with carbon black leather and Alcantara, while the stylish satin lacquered carbon fiber detailing extends throughout the driver and passenger zones. In contrast, a gloss finish has been applied to the air vents and handling and powertrain switchgear on the Active Dynamics Panel. A signature dedication plaque mounted to the MSO-branded carbon fiber sill panel completes the enhancements.
Each one of the 50 650S MSO models will be delivered with a Frank Stephenson-signed sketch and a luxury MSO branded, leather holdall. Handcrafted from stealth black carbon fiber leather, the weekend bag is fitted with complementing carbon black handles and stitching, and an Alcantara lining.
Pricing starts at 252,500 GBP (313,600 EUR) for the MSO 650S Coupe and 272,500 GBP (338,000 EUR) for the MSO 650S Spider, with first deliveries due before the end of the year.
