McLaren is showcasing its McLaren Special Operations tuning division at Geneva, with bespoke versions of the P1 and 675LT Spider
17 February 2016

McLaren is showing off bespoke examples of the P1 hypercar and 675LT Spider produced by its McLaren Special Operations (MSO) division at Geneva.

The one-off 675LT Spider features ceramic grey paintwork, a carbonfibre retractable hard-top (saving 1kg of weight), and carbonfibre louvres around the front wings. Carbonfibre weave is also used for the car’s airbrake at the rear. Only 500 examples of the regular 675LT Spider will be made, all of which have already been sold.

Inside, the car features black Alcantara seats with contrasting yellow stitching and unique colour detailing. The titanium exhaust system also receives a 24-carat gold heat shield.

The MSO 675LT Spider is unchanged mechanically, which means it retains its twin-turbocharged 3.8-litre V8 engine with 666bhp and 516lb ft of torque. The Spider variant matches the 675LT coupé from 0-62mph, with a time of 2.9sec, and has a top speed of 203mph.

The bespoke McLaren P1, meanwhile, receives a full ‘visual’ carbonfibre body conversion and also features new black alloy wheels, black Alcantara trim inside with contrasting blue stitching, and the same gold heat shield as the 675LT Spider.

The 650S GT3 race car is also on McLaren’s Geneva show stand.

Our Verdict

McLaren P1
The McLaren P1 was one of the most eagerly anticipated hypercars of 2014

The stakes couldn't be higher, so has the P1 risen to the challenge?

I thought that the MSO was for tailored, new cars?
The last production run of P1's ended in December, so does that mean that I can send my P1 back to be modified?

Sounds a bit more like it's 'Additional options' rather than 'Special operations'?? i.e. exposed carbon fibre rather than painted, different wheels and interior are hardly 'Special operations'?

Surely 'Special operations' would be more power, more aggressive styling (like a road going GTR), special paint jobs (Like the P1 GTRs), or completely custom interiors etc? Maybe something that has a bit of R&D time to it to come up with. i.e. whatever Sir wants if Sir can pay the price?
