The McLaren MSO X

January 31, 2018

McLaren Special Operations has continued its run of limited-edition specials with the MSO X, a race-inspired take on the 570S.

Although it’s still road legal, the rear wing on the MSO X helps it create 100kg more downforce than its more mundane brethren, while the roof scoop helps more efficiently channel air into the car’s mid-mounted 3.8-litre V8. Inspired by the F1 GTR Longtail racer, McLaren says the scoop also creates a unique induction roar in the cabin – coupled with a titanium exhaust, it should make for a richer overall sound.

There are unique dive planes and a vented bumper up front, along with an easy-to-access tow strap that, presumably, owners will want to avoid using. The changes continue down back, where the rear wing sits above a reworked rear bumper.

Inside, MSO has pared back the standard Sport Series interior for the track. That means you get carbon shell bucket seats, exposed carbon chassis elements, a carbon-fibre dashboard and special helmet storage on the bulkhead. Along with the regular three-point belts, there are proper six-point harnesses on board.

“The MSO X collection is the perfect example of the rich vein of bespoke service offered by McLaren Special Operations,” said Jolyon Nash, executive director of global sales and marketing at McLaren.

Commissioned by McLaren Newport Beach in California, just 10 examples have been built and were handed to their owners at a special event outside Las Vegas, Nevada.
