679bhp McLaren MSO R coupe and Spider revealed

McLaren MSO R Coupe Spider Were Created For One Lucky Customer

McLaren Special Operations is a division of the British automaker set up just to work with customers on bespoke products.

That makes them a unique pair and odds-on to confound even the most ardent of McLaren spotters.

"A typical MSO Personal Commission extends beyond paint colours and materials and finishes to encompass changes to body and interior design and also dynamic and powertrain enhancements as required", said McLaren marketing boss Jolyon Nash. McLaren Special Operations is now seeing an increasing number of customers enquiring about bespoke and unique cars. "The result is a McLaren personalised by MSO to become a auto that is literally one of a kind - or in the case of these stunning MSO R cars, one of a matched pair". They're the team behind all manner of special editions and specialist commissions, the first of which was the Gerry Anderson-esque X-1.

The front bumper and bonnet are MSO exclusive parts, as too are the roof scoop, rear deck and louvered wings. As for the wheels, they share the same 5-spoke design, although the ones on the Coupe are finished in Satin Black, while the Spider gets them in Gloss Black. Wonderful how bright pink can make a carbon central stripe, giant rear wing and dive planes look quite sensible. Both cabins feature Alcantara® trim material throughout.

IAC/InterActiveCorp (IAC) Given Buy Rating at Bank of America Corporation
Ladenburg Thalmann Financial Services Inc. raised its stake in shares of IAC/InterActiveCorp by 0.9% in the fourth quarter. In a report revealed to clients on Monday morning, Citigroup kept their Buy rating on IAC\/InterActive (IAC) shares.

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.

The interiors of the Coupe and Spyder are also matched, with red Alcantara suede-fabric upholstery, black stitching and MSO R logos on the headrests. Switches are in gloss black and vent mechanisms are satin black, with bezels in carbon fibre. Its 679bhp is just 13bhp up on the 675LT, yet the pair of MSO R engines haven't just had an ECU tweak: there are hand polished heads and exhaust ports, and a unique exhaust system with titanium end pipes.

Started with an MSO R-branded key, both the Coup├ę and the Spider feature bespoke IRIS screen and instrument cluster displays and gear-shift lights. Today, McLaren announced that one customer is about to take home a almost identical pair of cars completely tailored to his tastes.
