McLaren previews bespoke 650S Project Kilo


McLaren Special Operations (MSO) has previewed the special edition McLaren 650S. Codenamed ‘Project Kilo’, the one-off 650S is one of the most personalised, bespoke projects that MSO have undertaken to date.

The supercar features an extensive list of carbon fibre options including the roof, diffuser, vent bezels, bespoke branded sill panels and instrument cluster bezel with integrated shift lights.


Meticulous attention to detail including aluminium water and oil filler caps painted body colour with McLaren Orange logos, McLaren Orange painted inner door seams with MSO logos, body coloured interior switches with a satin black starter switch and a 24 carat gold plated exhaust heatshield.


Finishing touches included a personal dedication plate on the driver’s door, a pair of bespoke designed keys, wheel centre caps painted with a McLaren Orange speed mark and lightweight titanium wheels nuts.


Interestingly, there’s also a small drawing of a Kiwi bird on the engine cover, which McLaren says is a reference to New Zealand, the birthplace of founder, Bruce McLaren.


Power and torque figures for the customised McLaren 650S ‘Project Kilo’ remain unchanged from the standard model, producing 478kW (641 bhp) and 678 Nm (500 lb ft) of torque. This sprint from zero to 100km/h is achieved in three seconds and the top speed is 333km/h.
