MSO is aiming to inspire prospective 600LT Spider owners at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show with a specially curated design, adding visual excitement.
The McLaren 600LT Spider by MSO combines colours, finishes and materials that express in heightened form the drama of the 600LT's aerodynamically-optimised body. The latest MSO creation follows in a tradition of spectacular MSO Bespoke supercars that have made their debut in Geneva over the past few years.
Napier Green is the MSO Bespoke choice for the brake calipers, while the 10-spoke Ultra Lightweight forged alloy wheels have a gloss black finish The car's striking colour palette centres on a Dove Grey body with flashes of Napier Green outlining key design elements of the Longtail concept, from the more pronounced front splitter to the larger rear diffuser. Dove Grey, a solid colour to save weight, provides the perfect canvas on which the shimmering metallic Napier Green accents can stand out.
The choice of Napier Green provides a link back to the 600LT's predecessor, the 675LT, for which Napier Green was one of the original hues. It has been available only as an MSO Bespoke colour since then.
In a first for McLaren road cars, the Napier Green accents are applied using a new technique that sees the paint applied onto a light and flexible film, which ensures a premium quality bespoke colour match. The film has previously been used on McLaren 720S GT3 and 570S GT4 race cars and this application typifies MSO's commitment to new and innovative techniques. The contrast-colour film will be available as a bespoke option in the future.
The contrasting stitching inside the cabin is also finished in Napier Green For the 600LT Spider, the film is applied to the splitter, sills and door inserts as well as the rear diffuser, where the four outer vertical ribs create a highly distinctive look.
The car features the full suite of carbon fibre options, including the MSO Defined Visual Carbon Fibre Front Fender Louvres, the 'gills' that have rapidly become one of the most popular options for the 600LT. In another homage to the 675LT, all the Visual Carbon Fibre exterior elements feature a satin finish.
The retractable hard-top is MSO Bespoke Carbon Black while the 10-spoke Ultra Lightweight forged alloy wheels have a gloss black finish. Napier Green is the MSO Bespoke choice for the brake calipers and this provides the inspiration for contrasting stitching and the 12 o'clock mark on the steering wheel inside the cabin.
Unique among Sports Series models, the 600LT is also optionally equipped with super-lightweight carbon fibre racing seats, originally developed for the McLaren Senna.
MSO Bespoke additions on show include 600LT headrest embroidery, Alcantara headlining and steering wheel and a range of MSO 'surprise and delight' features for owners to find. These include an accelerator pedal etched with 600LT branding and an MSO dedication plaque.
