McLarens MSO HS All Sold Out. It was first reported wrongly as 688 HS, but it has been confirmed as McLaren MSO High Sport. This car is also claimed to get many unique specs and styling. Specially built first for the certain customer, McLaren keeps it exclusive in very limited number of production units. Its photo has gone wild on the internet while the automaker keeps quiet about it. Here is the update.
McLaren MSO High Sport Specifications
Features, Exterior, and Interior
In trained eyes, we will notice that the new McLaren MSO High Sport supercar is built based on the 675 LT trim, which is already so awesome. However, this new car carries new changes and design too. First, it is reported to be available in burnt orange exterior finish.
In fact, there will be few units of this model and each build will be done with personalized exterior and interior color. Cabin trimming should be unique as well on each car. However, it has new aerodynamic elements on it to enhance its track-focused performance.
The features include large roof scoop, front wheel arches with air extractors, and four canards made of carbon fiber. In addition to it, this car features fixed rear wing. This rear wing is mounted right in the spot of the deployable spoiler, which plays the part as air brake as well, in the standard model. However, this car is claimed to be 40 kg lighter than the 675 LT trim. Thus, this car should have even better performance on the track.
Powertrain – McLaren MSO High Sport
Under the hood, this McLaren MSO High Sport supercar is powered by the twin turbocharged 3.8 liters of V8 engine. This engine has been improved a little so it can generate up to 679 hp of power output. This is one hell of power to run a sedan. This power is already 13 hp more than 675 LT engine can generate.
There is no further information on other performance and specs including torque, transmission, and acceleration rate. Considering the improved performance, other details should be adjusted to support final ultimate performance.
McLaren MSO High Sport Price and Release Date
Pricing on this car hasn’t been specified so far, but it must be more than Super Series standard car base price, £259,500. There is no information on its release date. McLaren already built 25 examples of it, and all of them are booked already. However, it is rumored that it is going to make its first debut during Monterey Car Week event.
Apparently, this is supposed to be private builds and McLaren never has any intention to make its prior publicity. However, this information has been leaked well while private customers have ordered the entire cars. Let’s hope we get more news on McLaren MSO HS performance later.
