MSO R Coupe and Spider revealed

The McLaren 650S may have already been replaced by the 720S, but one McLaren customer is still interested in the older British supercar. Badged only MSO R, the coupe and the spider have been lavished with all the best Macca bits and bobs and - we reckon - it's all been done in the best possible taste. Today, McLaren announced that one customer is about to take home a almost identical pair of cars completely tailored to his tastes.

Like the MSO HS commission from past year, the MSO R models are based on the 675LT but use blueprinted (with the cylinder heads machined further) versions of its twin-turbocharged 3.8-litre M838TL V8 engine. Called the MSO R Coupé and MSO R Spider, they are the latest in a lineage of McLarens produced as personal commissions, a service that sees the customer working closely with MSO to agree the direction, scope and specification of a project. In these cars, the engine makes 679 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. McLaren says both engines have been blueprinted and the heads and exhaust ports hand polished. The exhaust system is garnished with black titanium end-pipes for a sportier look.

The most notable change to the car's styling is the addition of a number of aerodynamic devices, including a large twin-element rear wing. Much of the carbon - known as VCF or Visual Carbon Fibre in McLaren jargon - is familiar from the 688HS, including the roof scoop, front splitter and rear diffuser. Both cars are painted in the same shade of silver, though the coupe is done in a matte finish. The steering wheel has a carbon fiber upper and lower, with black Alcantara grips and a Delta Red center stripe. There are red accents along the bottom and on the rear-wing endplates. The red-bucket seats sport the inverse colour scheme, with a red base colour and black stitching. A bespoke instrument cluster display with shift lights is also present. However, McLaren has deemed the cars to be so bespoke that it doesn't mention the base models in the model names - both cars having been named simply MSO R.
