McLaren 600LT by MSO revealed ahead of Pebble Beach debut


McLaren will grace the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance with a 600LT upgraded by the McLaren Special Operations division

McLaren will be heading to this week’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance with a bespoke version of its new 600LT.

Showcasing a raft of personalisation options from the Woking brand’s MSO (McLaren Special Operations) division, the concept follows on from the first public outing of the 600LT at the Goodwood Festival of Speed last month.

Featuring MSO Bespoke Stealth Grey paintwork, the 600LT receives a number of carbon fibre upgrades including an F1 Longtail-inspired air intake scoop mounted on the roof. Three carbon upgrade packs also feature, with carbon door mirrors and door inserts, plus a carbon front splitter, rear bumper, diffuser and engine cover.

An ‘MSO Defined’ carbon fibre roof and front wing louvres are also part of the package. The new parts are said to reduce eight, although McLaren hasn’t disclosed the kerb weight difference over the regular 600LT. 10-spoke gloss black wheels complete the look.

Inside, lightweight carbon seats are sourced from the McLaren Senna, with orange contrast stitching. Six point harnesses also feature, while a carbon transmission tunnel, carbon door inserts and an upgraded Bowers & Wilkins sound system is showcased.

Detail touches to the interior include bespoke embroidery in the headrests, ‘600LT’ etching on the throttle pedals and even a set of hand-painted keys.

The 600LT’s performance is unchanged over the standard car, with a 592bhp twin-turbo V8 taking it from 0-62mph in 2.8 seconds and on to a top speed of 204mph.
