679bhp McLaren MSO R coupe and Spider revealed

McLaren Special Operations (MSO) has revealed a new pair of custom supercars that is named MSO R, as a coupe and another as a drop-top Spider.

The two cars are aimed at a client and are technically identical apart from their covers and cover of the rear sections.

As the OSM HS commission last year, the OSM-R models are based on the 675LT, the use of the blueprinted (with the cylinder heads machined more) versions of its twin-turbo 3.8-litre M838TL V8 engine.

The mid-mounted unit blows through exhaust ports were hand polished and join the a-system titanium exhaust, which contributes to increase the output power to 679bhp of 666bhp in the now-discontinued 675LT. The drive is sent to the rear via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.

With their scope of transmission, the OSM-R models come with aerodynamic features, including a dual-element rear wing, before diving planes and MSO-Visual carbon fibre Pack parts. The two cars sit on five-spoke wheels; the coupe are finished in satin black, while the Spider is glossy black.

Inside, black Alcantara trim covers the dashboard, contrasted by red bucket seats complete with MSO R of the embroidery. At the signal of their unique character, the cars get MSO R plates on the top of their support.

McLaren did not release a price for its tailor-made models, but given that only two of these exist in entirely customized, the shape, the figure, each goes well beyond the £261,555 which requested the judgment of the 675LT.

The 675LT went out of production to make way for its successor, the 720S, which was launched earlier this year. This car swaps the 675LT’s 3.8-litre engine 4.0-litre production unit 710bhp. It has already been produced-to-measure form by MSO, with a fuchsia example created for the renowned car collector Michael Fux has been revealed at Pebble Beach in August.
