McLaren MSO Carbon Series 675LT Spider

As if it somehow needed it, McLaren’s aggressive 675LT Spider has been made all the more desirable thanks to the specialty outfit within the automotive company, MSO. Hot off the sale of a nearly stock F1 car from the 1990s, the group has stripped the car of paint so as to show off its carbon fiber paneling and christened it the MSO Carbon Series 675LT Spider.

A good portion of this car was built with carbon fiber to begin with; stock models of 675 LT Spider feature the lightweight material everywhere from the front bumpers, to the under body, side skirts, and more. This Carbon Series, however, features 40 percent more lightweight carbon fiber parts, including the retractable roof, A-pillars, and side blades. A black on black houndstooth-like design is the result of MSO’s decision not to coat the body with paint, a great choice considering how well the menacing looking material fits with the equally aggressive 666 horsepower engine.

According to McLaren, they have substantially updated the car’s 3.8 liter twin turbo V8 powertrain, even while the measurements on horsepower and torque (666 horses and 516 pound feet) remain the same. Of course, it is no surprise that a car from McLaren would preform as good as it looks – this limited edition car boasts a sprint time of 0-62 mph in just 2.9 seconds, and 124mph in just over 8 on its way to 203 mph. Only 25 are being made, all of which have been accounted for.
