All 10 cars in the MSO X series will be clad in race liveries inspired by McLaren F1 GTR racers and wear functional aerodynamic addenda as seen on the 570S GT4. They’re road legal, but they have also all been sold.
Leading the aerodynamic restyle is the rear-wing, which generates almost 100kg of downforce. Meanwhile, the carbonfibre roof intake – eliciting memories of the McLaren F1 GTR – enhances the induction bark as well as channelling more air to the 3.8-litre, twin-turbocharged engine. Spent gases then exit through a new MSO titanium sports exhaust while Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres have been fitted to make the best use of the extra downforce.
A suite of cameras and a telemetry system feature, so you can review your track sessions in detail. There are also parking sensors, a rear view camera, nose lift and a race-spec air conditioning system.
Chassis no. 8 in the MSO X series is finished in anniversary white with red and blue accents – this is a reworking of the livery applied to the F1 GTR Longtail chassis no. 26R which placed third overall at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1997. For chassis no. 10 MSO X adopts a much darker colour scheme, with black and grey livery, inspired by the F1 GTR chassis no. 01R that raced and finished first overall at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1995.
