Remember when McLaren announced that P1 production has come to an end in December 2015? Turns out that they were lying, as their state-of-the-art Woking facility still hides a handful of P1s, all sporting bare, full carbon fibre bodywork. MSO (Mclaren Special Operations) went around working with one of those for a customer, and the results are just stunning.

The carbon fibre bodywork is coated with a bespoke ‘Lio Blue’ tinted lacquer, while the wheels are finished in gloss black. The final bespoke element on the exteriors is a 24-carat gold exhaust heat-shield, which pays homage to the McLaren F1. The interiors of this P1 by MSO features full carbon black Alcantara trimming and contrasting blue stitching.

Mechanically, this particular, MSO tricked example retains the P1’s ferocious drive-train –  a 3.8-litre, twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine coupled with an electric motor to generate a combined, staggering output of 903 bhp. The P1 tips the scales at just 1,547 kg, which means naught to 100 kph is decimated in a blink-and-you-miss-it 2.8 seconds, while top speed is electronically limited to a blistering 350 kph, or 220 mph in Queen’s speak.

The full-carbon bodied McLaren P1 by MSO will be displayed at the upcoming Geneva International Motor Show in March, and will be joined by a carbon fibre-themed McLaren 675LT Spider, also prepared by MSO. Apart from these two, the McLaren 650S GT3 race car will also grace the floors, along with a yet-to-be-announced addition to the Sports Series family.
