Bespoke McLaren 675LT Commissioned With Gulf Racing F1 GTR ‘Longtail’ Livery

Mclaren Special Operations (MSO) just finished a road-going homage to the iconic F1 GTR in the form of a bespoke 675LT, wearing the famous Gulf-Davidoff racing livery.

The project, which required permission from Gulf Oil International Ltd, took more than 1,000 hours to complete, where the paintwork alone (including airbrushing) accounted for 800 hours in total. The result is this stunning bespoke livery.

“Creating a car like this unique McLaren 675LT, crafted to individual customer specification, is exactly the type of demanding commission that MSO Bespoke was formed to embrace,” stated MSO director, Ansar Ali. “Transforming the existing car from its original single color paintwork to a tribute to the McLaren F1 GTR ‘Longtail’ in Gulf Racing livery was incredibly demanding in its own right, but was only part of the brief; we also replaced numerous standard 675LT components with MSO parts and further personalized the car to clearly identify it with its owner, a service that an increasing number of MSO customers request.”

Aside from the special livery, this 675LT also comes with 20-spoke Dayglo Orange wheels, a color that’s found on the sill badges as well. Other features include the louvered front wings, roof scoop upgrade and carbon fiber airbrake – all with body color paint.

As for the interior, it has Carbon Black Alcantara MSO Bespoke racing seats with orange and blue contrast stitching, and orange seat belts, borrowed from the MSO Defined range. Look close and you’ll also spot Gulf Blue bezels on the Active Dynamics Panel, as well as Gulf Orange stop/start button and vent bezel surrounds.

In a straight line, the twin-turbocharged McLaren 675LT is capable of putting down 675PS (666 HP) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque, leading to a zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration time of 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 330 km/h (205 mph).
