Jenson already has a McLaren P1, a no-nonsense hypercar which is able to rip the tarmac with its earth-crushing performance. The MSO 675LT Spider will please him on the days when he wants a break from driving a 904bhp hybrid hypercar.

The ‘LT' in the 675LT stands for ‘Longtail' and was originally applied to the F1 GTR race cars of the 90s. The Spider employs the same twin-turbocharged V8 engine as the 675LT coupe, which churns out 666bhp at 7,100rpm and 700Nm of torque.

The supercar seems to remain in US for Jenson's personal use. MSO has made a special finish, embellished by black alloy wheels with a five-spoke design for this particular model. The high-performance brake calipers are also painted black.
