Special Operations, the bespoke division of McLaren Automotive, has released
images of the MSO 650S Coupe Concept – a showcase of the MSO designed and
engineered upgrades available for the McLaren 650S Coupe and 650S Spider, the
latest models to join to the McLaren Automotive range. The model is being shown
throughout China over the coming weeks and includes an array of bespoke MSO
features, including a newly designed carbon fibre rear diffuser and MSO-branded
carbon fibre side blades, according to a company statement.
MSO 650S Coupe Concept has a stealth-like, menacing appearance, with subtle
upgrades made to the exterior bodywork and within the driver-focused cabin. The
MSO 650S Coupe Concept is finished in ‘Agrigan Black’, which is a metallic
black paint specially developed in-house with a deep ruby red metallic flake.
This paint effect gives the exterior bodywork a dramatic colour change in
direct sunlight, contrasting with the extensive use of satin-finished carbon
fibre highlights. The lightweight carbon fibre accents, including the prominent
front splitter and air intakes, are complemented by bespoke MSO carbon fibre
side blades and the unique MSO ear diffuser.
MSO branded side blades are a more aggressive, full length, interpretation of
the door blades seen on the 650S Coupe and Spider models. Finished in satin,
they offer increased improvements to the airflow along the edges of the
bodywork, further optimising aerodynamic efficiency. At the rear, the
GT3-inspired rear bumper features a carbon fibre centre section, and the
lightweight material carries through to the carbon fibre airbrake and unique
MSO rear diffuser. The engine bay has been further enhanced with satin black
engine covers and a satin finish to all carbon fibre parts. The purposeful
exterior look of the MSO 650S Coupe Concept is finished with the addition of a
set of special satin black finished lightweight ‘650S’ alloy wheels, shod with
Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres.
