MSO “Project Kilo” Is a Highly Personalized McLaren 650S

McLaren Special Operations (MSO) has revealed one of the most personalized, bespoke projects that it has built to date, a 650S codenamed “Project Kilo.”

The customized McLaren 650S features a long list of carbon fiber options including the roof, diffuser, vent bezels, bespoke branded sill panels and instrument cluster bezel with integrated shift lights.

The folks from MSO also added aluminum water and oil filler caps painted in the car’s body color with McLaren Orange logos, McLaren Orange painted inner door seams with MSO logos, body colored interior switches with a satin black starter switch and a 24 carat gold plated exhaust heat shield.

Other details include a personal dedication plate on the driver’s door, a pair of bespoke designed keys, wheel center caps painted with a McLaren Orange speed mark and lightweight titanium wheels nuts.

Finally, the orange Kiwi on the engine cover is a reference to New Zealand, the birth place of the company’s founder, Bruce McLaren. As for the car’s nickname, McLaren didn’t say where it comes from, but we imagine it has something to do with weight reduction.
