McLaren Special Operations offers an ‘MSO Defined’ range of add-ons to tweak Super Series models' looks

The McLaren 12C, 650S and 675LT have been given their own range of aftermarket parts based on famous McLarens throughout history.

MSO Defined parts include both aesthetic and aerodynamic parts for the models, including bodywork add-ons such as a carbonfibre rear diffuser, louvred front wings - inspired by the 1970 M8D - and wheel arch liners, many of which are lighter than the parts they replace on the models. The carbonfibre rear diffuser, for example, is 0.5kg lighter than the standard one.

The parts also extend to upgraded interior trim, such as carbonfibre vent bezels and sill tops, and a carbonfibre steering wheel, which is available in an Alcantara finish.

Carl Whipp, McLaren’s head of aftersales, said: “We have experienced significant interest in the MSO Defined range on Super Series cars being ordered new and we are now very pleased to be bringing these features to a wider group of customers as a retrofit choice.”

Having been sent on gardening leave - or shoved forcibly out of the door or kicked up the butt or simply fired from all his F1 positions, will he still be able to be involved in this side of the business? If I was him I would just give em two fingers take the loot and tour the world with his well known sour face hiding a brilliant mind and an unparalleled leadership. RIP Mr Ron Denis - you will not be forgotten

And lighter vent bezels too.
