Following the positive feedback from the MSO 650S Coupe Concept shown in China, McLaren confirmed production plus for a limited run of bespoke examples of the 650S. Only 50 units of the MSO 650S will be available globally, either as a Coupe or Spider. At the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed, McLaren will shoe the production car in Spider form.
Inspired by the concept version, the MSO 650S comes with several styling cues such as a number of carbon fiber styling upgrades with satin finish. Moreover, we find MSO Side Blades but also a three-piece rear bumper that includes a carbon fiber centre section.
McLaren says that the MSO 650S will be available in three paint finishes specially developed by the bespoke division of McLaren Automotive. One of the colours is named ‘Papaya Spark’ and represents a modern twist on the McLaren Orange.
‘Agrigan Black’ is a metallic black with a deep ruby red metallic flake, while the ‘Sarigan Quartz’ is a brand new vibrant metallic silver with a subtle golden fusion.
The exterior design of the MSO 650S is completed by the Palladium coloured 10-spoke Super Lightweight alloy wheels featuring a diamond cut effect to the inside edge of each spoke. The wheels are 4 kg lighter over the standard-fit design and feature titanium wheel bolts.
Each lucky customer to get one of the MSO 650S models will also get a Frank Stephenson-signed sketch and a luxury MSO branded leather holdall. This bag is made from stealth black carbon fiber leather and fitted with carbon black handles and stitching, as well as Alcantara lining.
Pricing starts at £252,500 ($430,000 / 314,000 euros) for the MSO 650S Coupé and £272,500 ($463,000 / 340,000 euros) for the MSO 650S Spider, with first deliveries due before the end of the year.
