YouTuber Shmee gained access to another unique creation, the ‘Project Kilo’, a bespoke 650S built by McLaren Special Operations (MSO). He’s taking us on a tour round the car, showing us what makes it so special.
The ‘Project Kilo’ has no technical differences from its 650S brothers, so the owner will have to satisfy his needs with just 641hp (650PS) and 678Nm (500lb-ft) of torque, coming from its twin-turbocharged 3.8-litre V8. This customization is all about weight savings, making every panel lighter with the use of carbon-fibre bits. If you insist on asking how much weight was exactly saved, well, we don’t know as Mclaren never said.
The car, painted in an one-off ‘Kilo-Grey’ shade, also features a 24-karat gold heat shield for the exhaust and its sprinkled all over with orange detailing and some Kiwi logos, paying tribute to McLaren’s founder Bruce Mclaren who was born in New Zealand.
