This Is Why Nearly Every McLaren P1 Is A One-Off


McLaren Special Operations has been very, very busy.

Haveyou ever seen a McLaren P1 in person? If you've been lucky enough to spot oneof these million-dollar hypercars, you can rest assured that the next one yousee is going to be at least somewhat different. That's because, according toThe Detroit Bureau, some 90% of P1 buyers have ordered their cars with somelevel of customization from McLaren Special Operations. And as we have showed youin many examples, these special orders can range from anything like a specialpaint job to extensive bodywork and modifications.

According to Paul MacKenzie, the man in charge of the SpecialOperations unit, the company never says no to any request that does not lower crash standards or breach government regulations. “When we started, we decided we wouldn’t say ‘no,’” he told The DetroitBureau. “We said we’re not going to be the style police.” Even with some of themore outlandish designs and customization requests, the company has beenrespectful of "regional and cultural differences of our customers." In comparison, the unit has only customizedabout 15% of the McLaren 650S. So, the next time you see a P1, make sure to be on thelookout for those special touches added by its owner.
