Do kids still put car posters on their walls? If so, the McLaren 600LT by McLaren Special Operations is certainly a worthy candidate.
The McLaren 600LT Spider by MSO will be unveiled at the upcoming Geneva International Motor Show. Think of it as a special edition McLaren 600LT Spider which has just started production.
The 600LT is a more intense, driver-focused McLaren that’s assembled by hand and aims at the likes of the Lamborghini Huracan Performante and Ferrari 488 Pista. Owners will get plenty of looks even in a “normal” McLaren 600LT, but the MSO version pushes things to another level.
Napier Green accents are made even more visible by the fact that they are set on a Dove Grey solid background. We have always been partial to McLaren Orange accents on white or grey, but the light lime green on dark grey is certainly a winning combination as well.
The choice of Napier Green has some historical credibility. It was one of the original colors on the 675LT, the car that preceded the 600LT and McLaren Special Operations has offered it since. You can see Napier Green behind the wheels as well on the brake calipers.
McLaren used a special process of compressing the paint into what it describes as a “light and flexible film” to apply the green accent color. This marks the first time the British automaker uses this process on a production car as it used to be reserved exclusively for race cars such as the 720S GT3.
Carbon fiber is also a big part of the MSO McLaren 600LT. It can be found on the supercar’s body kit, wheels, and seats among others.
“Almost half of 600LT Coupé buyers have benefitted from MSO’s services, so it makes perfect sense to curate our own 600LT Spider to mark its debut at the Geneva Motor Show. Our design team relished the opportunity to accentuate the 600LT’s cutting-edge looks and with painstaking attention to detail, including the use of innovative materials, we’ve showcased our craftsmanship too. Few cars deserve MSO’s personalization more than a McLaren Longtail and we can help our clients realize their visions with a car of their own making,” said Ansar Ali, Managing Director at McLaren Special Operations.
The McLaren 600LT Spider is powered by a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 which develops 592 horsepower. It springs to 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds.
