McLaren 650S Spider

McLaren is by definition a spectacular brand that creates awesome vehicles. In the past years, McLaren vehicles have been set under the magnifier of many tuning companies. The sporty cars have received a great amount of tunes. Mansory, Hamann Motorsports, Gemballa, Fab Design, Wheelasandmore, Hennessey Performance are just a few of the names that took on the challenge of modifying the already super cars. But it seems there’s no better tuning package than the one coming from the official tuner of the McLaren brand, the McLaren Special Operations. MSO has just announced their presence at Pebble Beach with the special McLaren 650S Spider and P1.

The special McLaren 650S Spider is the product of the collaboration between MSO, McLaren Newport Beach and McLaren Automotive Design Director Frank Stephenson. It features a Cerulean Blue exterior paint scheme contrasting the satin carbon fiber detailing on the front bumper, side air intakes and the rear bumper's central area and diffuser. It rides on ten-spoke lightweight alloy wheels and also has chromed exhaust finishers. Inside the supercar we discover carbon black leather upholstery with contrasting blue stitching, as well as MSO-branded carbon fiber sill panels along with satin lacquered carbon fiber inserts. There's also a dedication plaque and a MSO leather bag with dark chrome metal inserts.

The impressive McLaren P1 is distinguished by a Stirling Grey paint with glossy carbon fiber accents and McLaren Orange accents. These are also noticeable on the brake calipers located behind the body-colored wheels. Around the engine bay and inconel exhaust there's a 24 carat gold heatshield, as a reminder of the legendary F1 of the 90s. Inside the cabin there is Alcantara and carbon fiber while the carbon shell racing seats come with a four-point harness. The upholstery is distinguished by Stone Grey binding and stitching and there are also satin nickel air vents featuring the same look as the exhaust finisher. Both of these spectacular vehicles will be showcased at Pebble Beach next week.
