McLaren will showcase special edition carbon fibre examples of both the 675LT Spider and the P1 as well as a ‘still-to-be-announced addition to the Sports Series family’ at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show. Both the 675LT and P1 pay tribute to McLaren’s ‘Ultimate Series’ P1, production of which recently ended.

Both tributes have been developed by McLaren Special Operations (MSO), Woking’s bespoke customization program. The P1 in particular features a full, visual carbon fibre conversion (there’s even a 24-carat golf exhaust heat shield), and features unique ‘Lio Blue’ lacquer, gloss black wheels and an interior re-trimmed with black Alcantara and blue stitching. Though the bespoke P1 by MSO – one of only 375 P1s produced – was made available to select customers earlier this year, Geneva marks the first time the model has been unveiled to the public.

The bespoke version of the 675LT Spider also makes its first public appearance: only 500 examples of the Spider have been produced, and yes, sorry, they’re all sold. The 675LT edition meanwhile features Ceramic Grey paintjob and carbon-fibre detailing while inside there is a pair of black Alcantara-trimmed racing seats with contrasting Xenon Yellow stitching. Mechanically, both the MSO-developed P1 and 675LT Spider are unchanged, meaning the former retains its 727bhp 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 (903bhp total) and its electronically limited 350kph top speed, while the latter boasts a 666bhp version of the same unit and a 326kph top speed.

At Geneva, McLaren will also showcase its 650S GT3 racecar as well as the latest addition to the Sport Series, which will sit alongside the 540C and 570S. You may want to check out our test drive of the 570S HERE. Oh, and if you’ve ever wondered what a 675LT Spider would look like being ragged by a former Grand Prix driver – Bruno Senna in this case – then look no further
