Bonkers McLaren MSO HS Revealed — This Or The P1?

Written By:

British supercar maker McLaren has unveiled the latest car in its Super Series range, the bonkers MSO HS.

The new McLaren HS is based on the 675LT and will be a limited edition supercar. Only 25 cars will ever be built, and if you're looking to call one one your own, you're out of luck, as all 25 have been sold.

The new MSO HS is powered by the same 3.8-litre twin turbo V8 that powers all modern day McLarens. The engine now produces 679bhp and 700Nm of torque. All this power and torque is sent to the rear wheels through a 7-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox.

The MSO HS produces 13bhp more than the 67LT, which is partly down to a new hand-polished exhaust system, with a crossover muffler which optimises gas flow. 

However, the MSO HS isn't all about the extra power from the engine. The HS gets a new, more aggressive front splitter along with a roof-mounted air scoop. Also new is a giant, carbon fibre, adjustable rear spoiler, which also acts as an air brake. The new aero package delivers 220 kilograms of downforce at 241km/h.

McLaren's Special Operations Division, which commissioned the limited run car has also put the car on an extensive weight saving programme. The engine gets a new bespoke polycarbonate cover which along with the Alcantara interior trim help shave off an extra 3.5 kilograms. The seats are now made from carbon-fibre which helps save an extra 15 kilograms, while the heating/AC controls are now found on the infotainment display to help shave off a little bit more weight.

However, McLaren has added three cameras, so that owners can show off how good they were on the track.
