Give your McLaren 570S Coupé, 570GT, or 570S Spider a meaner sound by installing MSO titanium exhaust

British automaker McLaren developed their MSO (McLaren Special Operations) division to make their already exclusive vehicles a little more bespoke. And today, we are going to discuss some of their newest and coolest products that indicate the company’s expertise in style and performance to the Sports Series range.

For instance, if you own a 570S Coupe, 570GT and 570S Spider, and you want to achieve a meaner sound, you can always order the new titanium exhaust. It is actually lighter than the stock unit by 11 pounds (5 kilograms). Best of all, it makes the sound it produces five decibels louder. MSO claims that the car’s new tone sounds cleaner and crisper, and that this comes from the rear end of the vehicle.

Today, the titanium exhaust runs 4,750 pounds ($6,570 at current exchange rates), and this part can be had in a Nano Black finish, instead of the standard Nano Clear colour. The good news here is that these add-ons will not only be available as an option for new cars, as later this year, MSO will be offering these as an upgrade to already existing Sports Series owners.

McLaren’s special paint Muriwai White pays homage to founder’s home

McLaren’s special department, the McLaren Special Operations (MSO) team, has created a unique colour that is a tribute to the home of the automaker’s founder, Bruce McLaren, in Surrey, England. This unique paint they call the Muriwai White has a white base with subtle hints of blue. We first saw it on the 570S Spider pictured here, but anyone can get their McLaren in this shade through MSO.

This white paint came to light with the help of Amanda McLaren, Bruce’s only child and a brand ambassador for McLaren Automotive. She worked with MSO to develop the special colour. Their family home in England was painted in white, accented with blue doors. You might be wondering where the name Muriwai originated. Well, it is a town in New Zealand, located northwest of Auckland where Bruce grew up and where he won his first hill climb at the young age of 15.

But there’s more to this story. Amanda also said during the announcement of the new paint that her mom, Patty, was at a dinner party once, and a palm reader told her that she would live in a big white house with blue doors and shutters. Following that, she said that this unique shade of white is a symbol of her father’s pride and her mother’s comfort. Her father died prematurely in 1970 at the age of 32. Now we understand what makes this unique hue so special for the McLaren family.

MSO R Coupe and Spider: two unique McLaren vehicles built for one customer

McLaren Special Operations division (MSO) recently finished two new bespoke supercars: an MSO R Coupe, and an MSO R Spider. Both vehicles were based on the 650S and are fitted with a number of features. There’s another thing you should know: both vehicles were also made for one lucky and wealthy customer.

The coupe and the spider are among the latest projects of the MSO, and both are equipped with the same internal, external and mechanical specifications. For instance, both come with a 3.8 liter biturbo V8 that carries out 679 horsepower (506 kilowatts) and 516 pound feet (700 Newton metres) of torque. That is actually quite a big difference when you compare it to the standard 650S that produces only 641 horsepower (477 kilowatts). To give them both a unique roar, they were given a new titanium exhaust system with a crossover muffler.

To give them the overall package, both models will be given a dramatic-looking exterior, finished in a beautiful Liquid Silver paint, contrasted by a unique Delta Red pin stripe feature on both the front splitter and side blades. It has been given new elements like the MSO Visual Carbon Viber (VCF) front bumper, hood, louvered fenders, roof scoop, side mirror casing, and the rear decklid. The owner will be reminded of MSO when looking at the exterior, because of the splitter, side skirts, door sills, and rocker panels. Lastly, the coupe comes with a set of new satin black five-spoke wheels, while the spider has been fitted with five-spoke gloss black wheels.

You can own this McLaren 675LT Spider with MSO specifications for less than $500,000

Having a full list of MSO options is certainly one of the modern miracles in the world of after-market tuning. That said, there’s a McLaren 675LT Spider with MSO upgrades currently on sale at McLaren Scottsdale. For $487,572, the 675LT Spider features Mercedes Benz’s Flintgrau Metallic paint with MSO’s front splitter, rear diffuser, rear bumper, hood and side skirts all made with carbon fiber. In addition, the airbrakes, roof and hood have been painted off with a pair of racing stripes in Cerberus Pearl.

With this many MSO options, the one listed here may not even be the highest priced McLaren 675LT but it surely is one of a kind. We say this because a whole other range of MSO upgrades could be seen throughout the exterior. For example, there’s a new set of wheels in bronze with brake calipers in signature McLaren Orange. It also boasts a satin blue carbon fiber paddle shifts and a 24 carat gold heat shield throughout the exhausts.

Inside, the MSO specced 675LT Spider comes with a unique combination of carbon black leather and Alcantra fabric with a touch of Midnight Blue to highlight the accents. To create a connection with the exterior motif, the seat belts feature the same McLaren Orange just as the one painted on the brake calipers. All in, this entire set would typically cost you more than $90,000, which we think isn’t bad for a car bearing the Speedy Kiwi “swoosh” logo to start with.

Retired Formula 1 driver Jenson Button has just received his brand new McLaren MSO 675LT Spider. This was confirmed after McLaren Beverly Hills posted a picture on its official Instagram account. There must be a sentimental reason why he chose the new MSO among other high performance cars. It must have something to do with the fact that Button drove a McLaren-Honda in last year’s F1 world championship.

There have been no reports yet on what the 2009 F1 champion plans for his immediate future. Since he has retired, it’s likely that he must’ve bought the 675LT for his own personal use and enjoyment. He had owned 12Cs and 650S in the past but this new Spider surpasses all of them when it comes to performance and price. His Longtail comes with special MSO finishing, which includes black alloy wheels with five spoke design as well as brake calipers of the same color.

Earlier reports revealed that a McLaren 675LT Spider with MSO paint would cost you an additional $60,000. That’s merely for the paint job. There is also this $12,000 color coded key fobs that come separately.

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.

Before people knew it, Ferrari has already created its 50th droptop model. The Italian sports car maker unveiled its 50th droptop model and the latest member of the Special Series family – the new Ferrari 488 Pista Spider – at the highly prestigious Concours d’Elegance at Pebble Beach in California.

Earlier this year, Ferrari introduced the 488 Pista Coupe and the track-oriented Piloti 488 Pista Special Edition. The 488 Pista is the considered as the successor to Ferrari’s V8-engined Special Series – the 360 Challenge Stradale, 430 Scuderia and 458 Speciale. Now, the latest Special Series is welcoming its new member in a convertible form. The decision to unveil the new 488 Pista Spider in the United States was influenced by the fact that Ferrari’s North American clients have been keen connoisseurs of high-performance convertibles since the 1950s.

Essentially, the difference between the Coupe and the Spider versions of the Ferrari 488 Pista is that the latter features a droptop, which roof system is more complex than the fixed one. Because of increased complexity of its convertible roof, the new 488 Pista Spider is around 200 lbs (91 kg) heavier than the 488 Pista Coupe. Since both versions of the Ferrari 488 Pista are powered by the same powerplant -- a twin-turbo 3.9-liter V8 engine that delivers 720 hp of max output and 770 Nm (568 lb.-ft.) of peak torque – this difference in weight results to a very slight disparity in terms of performance.

The new McLaren Senna isn't your ordinary car on the road. It is a supercar that delivers 800 PS (789 hp), pays tribute to legendary Formula 1 driver Ayrton Senna, and is available in a limited run of 500 examples. Now, one of these 500 examples has arrived in New York City, as delivered to renowned car collector Michael Fux.

Arriving at the garage of Fux is the first McLaren Senna made for North America. Furthermore, this example of the Senna was personalized for its owner by McLaren Special Operations (MSO). By taking a good look at the extensive bespoke content of this Senna example, it is safe to assume that Fux has really made this supercar an extension of his own personality.

Dubbed as the Fux Green McLaren Senna, this example features a Full Visual Carbon Fiber Body, as finished in a custom emerald green dubbed as Fux Green. This full body set has 67 parts, all needing nearly 1,000 hours to produce. The exterior is rounded off by blue-and-red wheel center lock nuts as well as ball-polished wheels.

For those of you who follow news on Ferrari, we are pretty sure that you have seen the one of a kind SP38 nicknamed the “Deborah”, which simply is a 488 GTB that has gone through a number of cosmetic upgrades for it to look like a prettier coupe. But have you imagined a car like that, looking like a Spider? X-Tomi Design, and individual artist from Hungary decided to take out the car’s roof to imagine how the unique creation would look based on the 488 Spider.

The coupe’s lovely F40 inspired engine cover may be gone already, but the imaginary SP38 Spider still has everything they need to become a veritable showstopper, though there are zero chances of this to become a reality.

That’s because Ferrari has no plans of making an exact same model for another client, because the first client will probably not want a replica of his car. But instead, maybe the commissioned Deborah wants a matching Spider to go along with the Coupe. But don’t get us wrong because we are really just making up these scenarios in our minds.

In the past couple of months, there have been a number of special edition McLarens that have been released in the past few months. Some of these include the 720S Atlantic Blue and the 570S MSO X. Now, the newest member of the range is arguably more sinister than the rest, and they call it the MSO Black Collection. This McLaren 570GT package will only be limited to 100 examples worldwide, and will definitely see the sporty coupe draped in an all-black, stealth design.

Moving on to the outside, the 570GT will be dressed in a one-off Carbon Black finish, that will be complemented with an MSO Black Pack that replaces the Dark Palladium features available in the standard model.

This includes things like the front and rear splitters, side skirts, and air intakes, and all these will be finished in black. The new set of five twin-spoke lightweight forged wheels will also get a new gloss black diamond finish, which will then be wrapped in Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires. The package also adds carbon ceramic brakes and black brake calipers to the car.

The McLaren F1 is considered to be one of the most difficult models to get your hands on and it’s even more elusive now especially since its prices have gone up in excess of $10 million when being auctioned.

So instead of letting customers cry over the F1, McLaren Newport Beach decided that they would work with their special division, McLaren Special Operations to give 10 of their customers the next best thing: custom MSO X examples of the 570S Coupe with exterior inspiration from the competition livery of an F1 GTR race car.

When looking at the MSO X 570S from the outside, it is apparent that the model gets inspiration from the 570S GT4 race car, except that they are road legal. The sides of the bumpers now get dive plates, while the competition inspired hood features additional intakes.

Yes, there is no more reason to stay at home when it’s freezing outside. Some folks sometimes feel the need to just stay snuggled up at the fireplace most especially if the dreaded wet and snowy roads start to threaten those hot summer wheels. But what if you have better things to do than sip coffee all day or hang out with your bae while staring gloomily at the frosted window? Boy we’ve got some good news for you.

British car maker McLaren and Italian tire manufacturer Pirelli have partnered in developing a winter wheel and tire bundle for McLaren’s Sports Series. What does that mean exactly?

Pirelli has optimized the tires to perform whether on rain, snow or dry conditions and these have been integrated with McLaren’s tire pressure monitoring equipment that works in conjunction with the vehicle’s onboard systems. Developed for its latest 570S Spider as well as for the 570GT, 570S and 540C, each package will include four 14–spoke forged alloy wheels in Dark Metal Grey finish plus a set of Pirelli’s MC Sottozero 3 winter tires.

McLaren unveiled a one-off Gold - on - Black 720S at the 2017 Dubai Motor Show which will be on display throughout the entire stretch of this week’s event. The rare showcase is from a special client of the British marque’s bespoke engineering division.

McLaren Special Operations or MSO’s latest project is the 720S coupe in satin black with gold elements that also features gold alloy wheels, a 24-carat gold engine heat shield and some gold stencils at the rear spoiler bearing Bruce McLaren’s famous quote in 1964.

In order to apply its special MSO touches, the bespoke program added some new upgrades which include new rear bumper, air intakes, front splitter and roof panels which have all been replaced with carbon fiber elements.

As there are only 375 McLaren P1s in the world and all of them have been completely sold out, McLaren’s hybrid hypercar is truly one of its kind. But what if we tell you there is one that actually stands out among all the McLaren P1s out there? Not only that, it has also increased in market value bearing in mind the $1.3M price tag that initially came with the P1.

Currently on sale at James Edition is an extremely unique example of McLaren P1 by McLaren Special Operations. Its seller, Premium Automotive Concept, is based in Germany and has been selling it with a listed price of €2.170.000 (or approximately 2,561.468 USD).

The owner of this particularly rare example had first ordered it in matte black as you can see from the photo. But then the rest of its body panels are finished either in carbon fiber or gloss black as well, making it stand out all the more from any regular P1s we’ve seen before.

McLaren Special Operations’ (MSO) latest project pays tribute to the racing homologation car from 1997 - that is the F1 XP GT “Longtail”. Today, they have styled six new McLaren 570GT coupes to look like the 1997 model. All six examples were given an exclusive livery, painted in “XP Green” on the outside, while the interior is finished in a Saddle Tan leather that complements the exterior design. The interior also gets some green bits here and there, as well as a specialized plaque on the dashboard. Overall, it looks like a balance of a vintage and a modern vehicle.

The model that these 570GTs pays tribute to was actually introduced back then to keep up with the FIA homologation rules. And after the company has seen the success of the McLaren F1 race car, the company came up with a “Longtail” model, which they referred to as the F1 XP GT. The company even had to build a road legal version of this too. What really resembles the 570GT with the F1 XP GT would be its green and tan colour scheme, as you can see in the photos.

With only six examples, who are the six lucky people who will get their hands on one of these? Well, what we do know is that these examples will be sold in the UK, Germany, and The Netherlands. Furthermore, McLaren shared that the MSO-specified parts on the customized model are worth £21,000 (around $28,500).

All eyes were turned to the fuchsia pink bespoke McLaren 720S MSO at the 2017 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance Sunday. Surely, we can understand why. The one-off supercar, which was commissioned by entrepreneur and philanthropist Michael Fux and was created by the British automaker’s bespoke division, wears a very bright, eye catching body paint of pink tone with a hint of purple.

Featuring what is called the “Fux Fuschia” color scheme, the MSO 720S was tailor-made to perfection to meet its owner’s unique taste. Starting from the striking exterior up to its luxurious cabin with custom leather and white stitching, down to its lightweight alloy wheels in platinum. Other highlights consist of the cabin’s carbon fiber elements, the pinstriped steering wheel, the fuchsia pink rear view mirror cover as well as the window surrounds and exhaust pipes in Stealth Gray finish. It also comes with white floor mats to complete the all-white theme interior scheme.

A well-known car enthusiast, Fux has over a hundred luxury cars in his collection and many of those are custom made with some unusual colors. There’s one McLaren P1 in green, a McLaren 12C Spider in purple and a McLaren 12C in orange and now comes the new Fuchsia Fux pink McLaren MSO 720S. Fux’s list of car collection doesn’t end there yet. The self-made businessman from Cuba also owns several Rolls-Royces, Aston Martins, Porsches and Ferraris. Being a famous philanthropist, Fux is known to often put his precious cars on display on charitable events while raising money for a good cause.

It’s finally here, the much-awaited open-air version of the McLaren 570S. Two years after McLaren launched the coupe form of the McLaren 570S, the British carmaker is now opening the order books for the new McLaren 570S Spider. As designed and engineered, the new McLaren 570S Spider is basically the same as the McLaren 570S Coupe, but without the fixed roof.

The new McLaren 570S Spider is essentially the third body style of the carmaker’s Sports Series product family (570 family), following the McLaren 570S Coupé and the McLaren 570GT. The main difference between the 570S Spider and the 570S Coupe is the fact that the open-top version comes with a retractable roof. Of course, the new 570S Spider still offers splendid levels of dynamism and refinement, coupled with supercar attributes and attitude.

As intended, the new two-seat, rear-wheel drive is provided with two-piece retractable hardtop made from lightweight composite panels. This sleek roof was engineered using the technology employed in the McLaren 650S and 675LT Spider models. Operated electrically with just a simple push of a button in the driver’s cockpit, the roof could be opened or closed in around 15 seconds, as long as the McLaren 570S Spider is travelling at speeds of up to 40 km/h (25 mph).

WheelsAndMore has done it again. Aside from customizing multi-piece special lightweight wheels, WheelsAndMore could also make a car more dynamic in terms of road performance. This is shown on one of the company’s latest works, a performance-enhanced version of the already powerful Ferrari 488 Spider.

As it is typically, the Ferrari 488 Spider isn’t your ordinary roadster. Any car produced by Ferrari reigns supreme, especially in the area of performance. The Ferrari 488 Spider isn’t an exception.

Its beautifully and elegantly design exterior faithfully reveals how crazy is the Ferrari 488 Spider in terms of power. It is quite important to mention that the 488 Spider is powered by a 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that could deliver 670 PS (661 hp) of max output at 8,000 rpm and 760 Nm (561 lb.-ft.) of peak torque available at 6,750 rpm. With this amount of power at its disposal, the Ferrari 488 Spider could accelerate from standstill to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) in just 3.0 seconds and to 200 km/h (0 to 124 mph) in around 8.7 seconds. As far as top speed is concerned, the Ferrari 488 Spider could go as fast 325 km/h (203 mph).

Following in the footsteps of the McLaren 570S, 540C and 570GT is the newest addition to the McLaren Sports Series -- the roofless 570S Spider. McLaren 570S was rolled out in coupe form 2 years ago, and we have been waiting for a convertible Spider version ever since. Now our fantasy can be a reality, as McLaren Automotive head honcho Mike Flewitt addressed the rumors and finally confirmed that the 570S Spider will be released possibly this year.

Flewitt is still silent about the further specs of the 570S Spider, however the up-and-coming sports car convertible will be built based on the Spider versions 650 and 675LT, which have been fitted with a folding hardtop.

The new 570S Spider will be equipped with a biturbo 3.8 L V8 engine, akin to its fixed-roof equivalent. When an auto manufacturer converts a coupe into a convertible, we can't help but think about the extra weight and lessened rigidity. However, the performance hasn't changed much, as the folding roof of the 570S Spider only puts on around 88 lbs (40 kg) and will not alter the 570S Spider's acceleration record from zero to 62 miles per hour (100 km per hour).

To those who are planning to commit a crime Milan and are relying on a getaway car, better think twice. The Milan Police now have a Ferrari 458 Spider in their garage. With its estimated 320 kmh top speed, escape would be a remote possibility. That’s how we want it to go in our imaginations but actually, this car will be used for educating the public.

The police in Milan are happy folks now -- a confiscated Ferrari 458 Spider was seized from a mobster in an organized crime pursuit in September of 2016, and recently reassigned to Milan's ghisa (a local term for police) by a court responsible for allocating seized goods for public use. The local police force and national brigade can request to keep the seized goods taken from the mafia.

Lucky guys. According to the local agency, they have confiscated around 29 other cars and 3 motorcycles from mobsters located in the city. But local police force commander Antonio Barbato cleared the issues surrounding the acquisition of the supercar and remarked that the public won’t see the Ferrari shred the roads accelerating straight to 200 kmh in less than 10.8 seconds in Corso Buenos Aires.
