McLaren reveals unique MSO-developed 650S ‘Project Kilo’

McLaren Special Operations has given us a glimpse of a unique one-off model called the 650S Project Kilo. McLaren says the special model is one of the most personalised, bespoke projects that MSO has undertaken.

Already a stunning model in factory standard specification, the bespoke 650S Project Kilo features a long list of carbon fibre features, such as a rear diffuser, vent bezels, a full carbon roof, sill panels, and instrument cluster bezel which features integrated shift lights.

Other added features include McLaren Orange logos and inner door seams, body-coloured interior switches, a satin black starter switch, aluminium water and oil filler caps, and a 24 carat gold-plated exhaust heat shield. If that’s not enough, there’s also a bespoke set of keys, wheel centre caps, and lightweight titanium wheel nuts.

As a nice finishing touch, McLaren Special Operations has included a picture of a kiwi bird on the engine cover as a sign of acknowledgement to McLaren founder Bruce McLaren’s birthplace of New Zealand.

The 650S uses a 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 that produces 478kW and 678Nm, giving the British supercar enough grunt to shoot from 0-100km/h in just 3.0 seconds. Australian prices start from $441,500 for the coupe, and 486,250 for the convertible.
