2013 McLaren 12C Concept Car by MSO

Posted on by  

McLaren Special Operation — MSO for short — is a special division of the company established back in August 2011. Since then, the best vehicles we’ve seen from them were the MP4-12C High Sport and the X1 .

While waiting for that special Project Alpha supercar , which MSO announced a while ago, it launched a very cool 12C concept car. It is, of course, a new design exercise that show the amazing bespoke capacities of the MP4-12C sports car .

Just like with all the other vehicles developed by MSO, this special 12C received a full package of bespoke features, including a revised hood, front wing louvers, new rear wing vents, a unique airbrake and a new roof, featuring an integrated snorkel that channels air into the engine. All these elements are made in carbon fiber.

The 12C also features titanium wheel bolts to help reduce unsprung weight and add strength to the hubs.

For the interior, MSO adds a carbon-fiber instrument cluster with integrated shift lights, and a color trim inspired by the body color.
