McLaren MSO reveals MSO 650S Coupe ConceptMon, 28 Apr 2014 00:00:00 -0700
The McLaren 650S MSOP Concept (pictured) showcases McLaren’s custom options
It’s only a few months since we had a McLaren MSO 12C Concept from McLaren Special Operations (MSO) – Maclaren’s division that titivates cars for a significant wad of cash – to showcase just what MSO can do for the 12C. But with McLaren deciding that the 12C is biting the dust in the face of the new 650S, it’s time to update that concept to one that’s current, hence the arrival of the McLaren MSO 650S Concept.
The changes to the 650S by MSO are designed to illustrate what McLaren can do to make your 650S as individual as you are, and the updates included on the concept can be applied to both the Coupe and Spider versions of the 650S and even the 12C.
The MSO Concept gets an Agrigan Black paint job – a special paint with ruby red metallic flakes that changes colour in direct sunlight – lightweight carbon fibre accents including the front splitter and air intakes, carbon fibre side blades and a new rear diffuser.
The MSO sideblades are more aggressive – finished in satin and improve airflow – the GT3-like back bumper gets a carbon fibre centre section with carbon fibre for the airbrake and MSO diffuser and the engine bay gets carbon fibre covers too. The whole exterior look is topped off by a set of satin black MSO alloy.
Inside, the 650S gets the MSO treatment too with fixed carbon fibre seats, lashings of satin carbon fibre highlights and switchgear and bezels in gloss black.
McLaren aren’t admitting how much this whole MSO makeover would cost on top of the 650S’s price, but you can already buy the MSO sideblades for £5,114 and the MSO rear diffuser for £7,245.
Which, by the standards of supercar extras, isn’t actually that bad.
