The two vehicles are the work of McLaren Special Operations (MSO), the bespoke division which offers a full personalisation service for McLaren owners. MSO was officially launched at Pebble Beach three years ago.
Commissioned by a North American customer, the special McLaren P1 has a host of bespoke options and will be on display publicly for the first time.
The unique example of the 217mph hypercar features aluminium and McLaren's traditional orange trim throughout the car. The bodywork is finished in an exclusive shade of grey paint and punctuated by further orange accents.
An orange ‘P1’ logo on the leading edge of the rear wheelarch is inspired by the labelling used on the test mules during the development of the McLaren P1.
The rear of the car is enhanced by the fitment of 24-carat gold heatshields around the engine bay and Inconel alloy exhaust. Gold was also used on the McLaren F1 due to its reflective and heat resistance qualities.
A bespoke aluminium grille is fitted above the carbonfibre bumper, and is framed by the P1's LED tail-light design.
The interior has been tailored with extensive use of carbonfibre and Alcantara, with the latter used on the bespoke MSO steering wheel. The lightweight carbon shell racing seats are fitted with four-point harnesses.
MSO will also showcase a one-off version of the MSO 650S Spider, which has been designed in collaboration with McLaren Newport Beach and McLaren Automotive's design director Frank Stephenson.
This unique example of the MSO 650S Spider is based on the MSO 650S which made its debut last month at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, and is one of just 50 examples with unique styling upgrades, including satin-finished carbonfibre.
The exterior has been finished in a bright shade of blue paint designed by MSO which includes a heavy metallic flake and offers a deep gloss shine. The exterior design also features chrome on the exhaust finishers and the ten-spoke lightweight alloy wheels.
The cabin is upholstered with carbon black leather with a contrasting blue stitch throughout, extending on to the steering wheel, dash and doors. The seats also feature a McLaren speedmark embroidered in to the headrests and continue with the blue contrast stitch on the outer edges.
Opening the dihedral doors shows the MSO branded carbonfibre sill panel, highlighting the lightweight MonoCell chassis, while satin lacquered carbonfibre upgrades are present throughout the driver and passenger zones. The MSO 650S Spider also features a dedication plaque, signed by Frank Stephenson.
In addition to the brace of special edition models, McLaren will unveil the P1 GTR design concept at Pebble Beach.
