  • McLaren MSO R Coupe

McLaren and their Special Operations division have announced that it is creating two MSO R supercars for one of its customers. Called the MSO R Coupé and MSO R Spider, they are the latest in a lineage of McLarens produced as personal commissions, a service that sees the customer working closely with MSO to agree the direction, scope and specification of a project. However, McLaren has deemed the cars to be so bespoke that it doesn't mention the base models in the model names - both cars having been named simply MSO R.

The MSO R Coupe is wearing Liquid Silver of the satin variety, while the paint of the MSO R Spider has a gloss finish.

MSO also fits special carbon fibre parts to the front bumper, bonnet, roof scoop and rear deck, with red pinstriping adding extra definition to the body work. Exposed carbon fiber forms a center stripe and is contrasted by red pinstriping on numerous aero elements. There's also a generous sprinkling of "MSO R" branding on the splitter, side skirts, sill panels, rocker panels and plenum cover to ensure the plebs know just how wealthy this individual is.

Moving inside, there's plenty of Alcantara trim throughout the cabin and the seats follow a red with black stitching theme. The wheels of both cars are the same 5-spoke design, finished in satin black on the coupe and gloss black on the convertible. The steering wheel comes with a carbon-fibre upper and lower, as well as black Alcantara grips and a Delta Red centring stripe. The M838TL hiding under the hood is tuned to produce 688 PS (679 horsepower) and 700 Nm (516 pound-feet), which is more suck-squeeze-band-blow than what the 675LT offers. By increasing pipe length and optimizing gas flow, you can bet your sweet bippy that the sound coming out of the titanium end pipes sounds as glorious as you imagine it to be.
