One-off versions of the McLaren P1™ and MSO 650S Spider will go on show at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance

Two bespoke, one-off cars, designed by McLaren Special Operations, will go on show at this month’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California.  A specially commissioned  McLaren P1™ and a one-off MSO 650S Spider which was designed in collaboration with McLaren Newport Beach and McLaren Automotive Design Director Frank Stephenson.

MSO was started in 2011 to allow customers to personalise their car as a result 20% of McLaren cars are now unique, you can do almost anything your heart and bank balance is capable of withstanding.

The McLaren P1™ on display is full of subtle detailing which include the McLaren Orange accents to contrast with the Stirling Grey paint finish and gloss carbon fibre components.  The brake callipers are finished in orange and mounted behind body-coloured wheels. It also has 24-carat-gold heatshields around the engine bay.

Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance takes place on August 17th in California.
