MSO will debut the bespoke McLaren GT this week.
Pebble Beach kicks off in just a few days and there are plenty of exciting debuts to look forward to. Rumors suggest Bugatti is bringing a new limited-edition hypercar inspired by the EB110, and the Acura Type S Concept will also make its public debut. Lamborghini also has something special planned. And now McLaren has revealed a new version of the GT designed by McLaren Special Operations that will also debut at the event.
Designed to demonstrate the wealth of personalization options available from MSO, the new GT features a newly developed exterior paint color, MSO Defined Flux Silver, contrasted by an MSO Bespoke Satin Graphite exterior paint applied to the door skirts, front splitter, wing mirrors, rear bumper and diffuser. This is complemented with MSO Bespoke Satin Graphite Iron Brake Calipers and the MSO Bright Pack, which includes a bright chrome exterior upper window surround, polished titanium exhaust finisher and Gloss Black Diamond Cut wheels.
Unlike most MSO show cars, the custom McLaren GT also features a bespoke interior offering new levels of luxury, with MSO Bespoke Geoform Stitching inspired by the geometric canopy design of the British Museum applied to the seat backs, sun visor, door cards, and armrest. Interior materials include Flux White Leather, which contains a subtle metallic sheen, and a contrasting Satin Graphite Leather, to complement the exterior color.
Elsewhere, the MSO logo is debossed in the headrests and leather sills, while MSO Bespoke Silver Infused Carbon Fiber has been applied to the gear shift paddles and the steering wheel clasp. The MSO Electrochromic Roof, Bespoke floor mats and MSO Painted Key Back, in Flux Silver to match the exterior body color, complete the changes.
"The McLaren GT defies the rules of a conventional Grand Tourer – it maintains the McLaren DNA of a lightweight and engaging drive, while adding in the space, comfort and usability expected of a GT," said Ansar Ali, Managing Director at McLaren Special Operations. "We believe that the McLaren GT has class-leading elegance and sophistication, and is the perfect car to further personalize, whether it be through an MSO Defined or MSO Bespoke option, or alternatively, a unique, customer-inspired design that MSO delivers a stunning interpretation of.”
Like the standard car, the McLaren GT by MSO is powered by 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 that produces 612 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque, enabling the gorgeous grand tourer to sprint fr.om 0-62 mph in 3.2 seconds and top out at 203 mph.
