McLaren Special Operations confirms a Limited Edition 650S
Just 50 bespoke cars to be available globally
McLaren Special Operations (MSO) and its innovative design team have confirmed production plans for a limited run of bespoke examples of the McLaren 650S – following the strong reaction to the MSO 650S Coupe Concept shown in China earlier this year. Just 50 examples of the design will be available globally, in either a coupe or 'Spider' body style.
The bespoke MSO division was launched in 2011, and offers a full personalisation service for McLaren owners. The team grew out of McLaren’s Customer Care programme, which goes back 20 years to the days of the McLaren F1 roadcar.
This new edition carries many styling aspects over from the original concept, and the team at MSO has worked closely with McLaren Automotive Design Director, Frank Stephenson to further enhance its visual appeal. The exterior of the MSO 650S is fitted with a number of carbon fibre styling upgrades with a satin finish, including extended 'MSO Side Blades' giving a subtle look. The three-piece rear bumper includes a carbon fibre centre section, and sits above a more aggressive rear diffuser, and it is available in three paint finishes, specially formulated by the bespoke division of McLaren Automotive. They all feature a heavy metallic content and cover a modern twist on the famous McLaren Orange plus a stylish metallic black with a deep ruby red metallic flake, and finally a vibrant metallic silver with a subtle golden infusion.
