McLaren expands MSO options range for 12C and 650

Owners of McLaren Super Series cars can now give them a revamp with a range of MSO (McLaren Special Operations) Defined accessories.

Offered and installed through McLaren retailers, the options can now be applied to any McLaren Super Series models from the 12C to the 675LT and at any point in the car’s ownership. 

The accessories are generally designed to enhance styling but also frequently bring a performance advantage, as a result of weight saving.

Among the exterior options are a carbon fibre rear diffuser, which reduces weight and enhances airflow, and carbon fibre mirror arms which can be coupled with matching mirror casings plus a carbon fibre bonnet, finished in visual carbon fibre, as seen on the limited-edition McLaren 650S Can-Am model.

There are also carbon fibre louvred front wings – inspired by historic McLaren race cars, such as the renowned 1970 Can-Am winning M8D – which save 0.5 kilograms over the standard equivalent. They feature vented wheel arch liners, to remove turbulent air from under the wheel arches giving more grip over the front axle. 

Interior enhancements include carbon fibre vent bezels, a carbon fibre steering wheel (trimmed in leather or Alcantara), extended carbon fibre gear shift paddles and carbon fibre sill tops which protect the sills of the MonoCell structure. 

Carl Whipp, Aftersales Director at McLaren Automotive, commented: “The growing MSO Defined portfolio gives customers an opportunity to further personalise their cars and significantly expands our wider accessories portfolio. We have experienced significant interest in the MSO Defined range on Super Series cars being ordered new and we are now very pleased to be bringing these features to a wider group of customers as a retrofit choice.”

The aftermarket enhancements in the Super Series MSO Defined range are available for existing owners and new customers purchasing through the Qualified programme and can be fitted by McLaren retailers.
