Bespoke McLaren 650S & P1 by MSO to debut at Pebble Beach

August 6, 2014

Two special McLaren models will debut at the prestigious Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance event later this month, built by McLaren Special Operations division (MSO). The vehicles are based on the 650S Spider and the new P1 hypercar.

McLaren 650S Spider by MSO

The bespoke 650S Spider MSO was a project partnership between McLaren Newport Beach and McLaren Automotive Design director Frank Stephenson. It is highlighted by a unique Cerulean Blue and satin carbon fibre colour scheme.

Other distinguishing features are the chrome tips for the exhaust, as well as a custom interior with carbon black leather with blue stitching, MSO carbon sill plates, and a special MSO build plaque.

McLaren P1 by MSO-orange brakes

As for the P1, it was put together by an American customer. It features a Stirling Grey exterior with gloss carbon trimmings, as well as McLaren Orange highlights such as the brake calipers. Under the engine cover is a 24 carat gold heat shield.

Open the door and you’re greeted with lots of Alcantara and carbon fibre, four-point harnesses, satin nickel air vents, Stone Grey stitching, and special carbon fibre racing bucket seats.

These two are sure to attract loads of attention at the big event. The Pebble Beach Concours will kick off on August 17, in Carmel, California.
