McLaren Special Operations, the bespoke division of McLaren Automotive, has announced the creation of the MSO Carbon Series LT.
Based on the manufacturer’s 675LT Spider, the Carbon Series LT has been developed with a focus on light weight and optimised aerodynamic performance. As with the Spider, the front bumper with larger splitter and end plates, front under body, side skirts, side intakes, lower side intakes, rear bodyside lower, rear fenders, rear deck, rear bumper, diffuser and Longtail Airbrake are all carbon fiber but with a gloss finish revealing the weave of the material. However, the MSO Carbon Series LT is also fitted with a gloss finished carbon fiber electrically retractable roof and tonneau, A-pillars, bonnet and rear deck, side blades, complete front and rear wings, and even fuel filler flap.
In total, the MSO Carbon Series LT features around 40% additional carbon fiber parts over a standard car.
Production of the MSO Carbon Series LT begins this autumn with first deliveries expected before the end of 2016. The 25 units have already been sold.
