When the factory options for the new McLaren 650S aren’t enough, customers have to look no further than McLaren Special Operations (MSO), the British automaker’s bespoke division. McLaren Special Operations is showing the MSO 650S coupe concept in China to showcase its customization capabilities.

Finished in a metallic Agrigan Black paint featuring deep ruby red metallic flake, the MSO 650S coupe concept is fitted with bespoke MSO carbon fiber bits including a redesigned rear diffuser and more aggressive side blades giving it a “stealth-like, menacing appearance.” With the red flake, the black paint changes color in direct sunlight and contrasts with the MSO carbon fiber pieces as well as the satin-finished carbon fiber front splitter and air intakes, according to the automaker.

Compared to the stock door blade, the full-length MSO side blade is more aggressive and increases airflow and aerodynamic efficiency along the side of the car. The MSO 650S coupe concept also features a GT3-inspired rear bumper with carbon fiber section as well as a carbon fiber airbrake. A satin black carbon fiber engine cover enhances engine bay cosmetics, while a set of satin black lightweight 650S alloy wheels wrapped with Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires rounds out the exterior upgrades.

The carbon fiber theme continues inside with fixed-back carbon fiber racing seats finished in carbon black leather. Based on the McLaren P1 seat design, the concept’s seats are mounted lower in the car and provide about 33 pounds weight savings. Gloss black switchgear and bezels contrast with the satin carbon fiber trim used throughout the interior.

Although just a design study, the MSO 650S coupe concept’s side blades and rear diffuser are available for the 650S and 12C.
