Three years ago at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, McLaren entered a new chapter with the P1, and now the Woking-based company returns to the same event for a fitting farewell to its hypercar with a carbon-fiber edition.
Made by the firm’s McLaren Special Operations (MSO) division, the high-powered hybrid machine swaps its regular panels in favor of a carbon fiber body in a bespoke “Lio Blue” tinted laquer, contrasted by black-finished wheels.
This is the first time that a full visual carbon fibre body conversion has been displayed publicly after it was made available to P1 customers earlier this year.
MSO also worked its magic on the exhaust heat shield element, which is made from 24-carat gold in a homage to the McLaren F1, while the interior was retrimed with carbon black Alcantara and blue stitching.
This P1 is customer-owned and was returned to the factory for these upgrades. It is believed that its rightful owner paid around $200,000 to have McLaren Special Operations to customize his/her ride.
