McLaren`s hardcore division MSO, which deals with exclusive customizations on different supercars within the lineup, has created a special and unique 675LT wearing the spectacular Gulf-Davidoff racing livery, a tribute paid to the F1 GTR racer from 1997.
To create such an astounding model, the program required permission from Gulf Oil International Ltd. Once done than, the technicians from MSO spent more than 800 hours to create the special paintjob alone, and another couple of hundred more to carry out the rest of the project. The end result can be admired in the media gallery below.
About this daring project, Ansar Ali, MSO director, has also stated:
“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. Transforming the existing car from its original single colour 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 personalised the car to clearly identify it with its owner, a service that an increasing number of MSO customers request.”
Besides the gorgeous livery, MSO specialists have also added custom-built 20-inch alloy wheels finished in Dayglo Orange, a colour which is also found on the sill badges, along with carbon fiber airbrake, roof scoop, louvered front wings and the owner`s initials on the same sill badges.
Inside, the interior has also been customized with cool stuff and gizmos, along with high-end materials. We are dealing here with the special Carbon Black Alcantara MSO Bespoke racing seats, orange seat belts, blue contrast stitching, the same owner`s initials on the headrests, Gulf Orange stop/start button, vent bezel surrounds or Gulf Blue bezels on the Active Dynamics Panel.
As for performance under the hood, the model in question stays faithful to its stock yet powerful 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine with 497 kW and 700 Nm of torque, enough to enable a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.9 seconds, at a top speed of 330 km/h.
