The show-stopping 'McLaren 600LT in Stealth Grey by MSO', produced by bespoke division McLaren Special Operations, is set to have its global reveal on the Concept Lawn at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance this Sunday, 26 August

Finished in a Stealth Grey MSO paint, this unique car features a wide selection of upgrades from both the MSO Defined catalogue of options and MSO customer choices, giving a preview of how much personalisation can be incorporated into McLaren’s lightest, most powerful road-legal Sports Series car.

Find the perfect balance

Introduced in July at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, the 600LT epitomises the McLaren philosophy of producing lightweight sportscars and supercars that deliver extreme performance and exceptional driver engagement.

Featuring the unique LT top-exit exhaust, the car delivers 441kW and can sprint to 100km/h in just 2.8 seconds on its way to a maximum speed of 328km/h (204mph).

"MSO Bespoke was established to help customers realise their dreams and allow an almost limitless level of customisation where imagination is the only restrictive factor.

With MSO Defined we offer a range of personalisation beyond the standard factory options. For this special 600LT, we have combined a sprinkling of both to create a car that showcases the lightness and track-focused performance of this latest Longtail variant," commented Ansar Ali, Managing Director of McLaren Special Operations.

The exterior of the car is distinguished by a Stealth Grey Bespoke paint finish with a Matt Black and McLaren Orange Exterior Pack to accent the car’s aerodynamic features.

The iconic Visual Carbon Fibre Roof Scoop, inspired by the legendary McLaren F1 Longtail, is a key MSO addition and operates as a fully functional air intake system that invigorates the driving experience with its active air induction sound. A track telemetry camera is also seamlessly integrated into the scoop cover to record inspirational moments.

Other MSO defined options on the car include all three Carbon Fibre Upgrade packs available for the 600LT, which include door mirrors, exterior door inserts front splitter, rear bumper, diffuser, and rear deck and service cover.

An MSO Defined Carbon Fibre Roof and Cantrails, plus Carbon Fibre Front Fender Louvres – which help to further reduce weight – are also fitted. Ultra-Lightweight 10-spoke Forged Alloy Wheels with a Gloss Black finish complete the overall ‘Stealth’ look.

Inside, the occupants are reminded of the 600LT’s track-focused heritage with a myriad of MSO touches including Super-Lightweight Carbon Fibre Racing Seats – taken straight from the McLaren Senna – featuring a McLaren Orange contrast stitch to mirror the exterior striping; a Carbon Fibre Interior Upgrade Pack including central tunnel and door insert panels; and the harness bar and 6-point harnesses from the MSO Clubsport Pro Pack.

The interior’s character is further transformed by the presence of the visual carbon fibre roof scoop cover incorporated into the headliner and the twin visual carbon fibre intake hoses for the scoop that is seamlessly integrated into the 600LT’s cabin design.

Adding a touch of extra luxury is the upgraded 12-speaker Bowers & Wilkins Audio System for enjoying those drives to the track, while beautiful detail touches that complete the picture include Bespoke Embroidery in the headrests, the discrete etching of ‘600LT’ on the throttle pedal and a Bespoke set of hand-painted keys that unlock the passport to 600LT adventures.
