McLaren Special Operations (MSO) is our bespoke division, dedicated to helping you take McLaren ownership even further.
MSO launched in 2011, but traces its origins to before the foundation of McLaren Automotive and all the way back to the launch of the McLaren F1 in 1992. We were determined to offer owners of the world’s most special car a customer care programme as unique as the F1 itself.
We create cars around an owner’s precise tastes, and we’re able to provide everything from bespoke customisation options through to building ultra-exclusive limited-edition or one-off models. Our mission is to make what is already special into something truly unique, to create your perfect McLaren
Every McLaren is created special, but owners still want to put their own stamp on their cars, to tailor them to match their own tastes. MSO Defined offers a range of personalisation beyond the factory options packages for Super Series and Sports Series owners, with choices for other models to follow. These enable owners to both customise the appearance of their cars, with carbon fibre parts and accents, but also to improve performance with aerodynamic kits and lightweight components.
Buying a McLaren is the start of a journey, and MSO Defined offers Super Series and Sports Series owners the chance to match their cars to their personalities.
MSO was established to help our customers realise their dreams. MSO Bespoke sits at the very heart of that mission, offering an almost limitless level of customisation. If you want it, and it’s possible, then we will do it.
Options range from choosing unique paint, trim and colour options – we can colour match anything you like – through to making far more substantive changes, even building a unique vehicle to your personal specification.
“Our mantra is ‘The Art of the Possible’ so only inspiration and appetite are the boundaries for our customers. MSO offers the complete personalisation service, from design to technical distillation delivered courtesy of outstanding craftsmanship and incomparable levels of personal service.” Ansar Ali, MSO Managing Director
MSO does not just offer upgrades to existing or new-build McLaren cars. It also produces its own ultra-exclusive models. MSO Limited is the part of the organisation responsible for the design, engineering and production of small series special editions.
These combine some of the more popular MSO styling and performance upgrades with bespoke enhancements tailored to the individual car. Every McLaren is created special, but MSO Limited models will always be among the most exclusive.
