X Marks the Spot for McLaren Special Operations

They were handed over to their owners during a special event near Las Vegas and offer a tantalising glimpse of what McLaren's MSO division can offer.

Well, you're not the only one because the sales personnel at McLaren Newport Beach have gone to the extent of getting in touch with the team at McLaren Special Operations to create this - the MSO X.

The McLaren "MSO X" was commissioned as a bespoke project to emulate the look and feel of the company's 570S GT4 race auto, but on a street-legal vehicle. More precise, they get a downforce-generous rear wing - yup, that's not just for show or vanity-boosting purposes - and a track-biased cockpit - while keeping their road-legal status. There's a fully functional "goose neck" carbonfibre roof snorkel for enhanced induction airflow, a pylon-mounted rear wing that provides approaching 100kg of extra downforce, and front dive planes.

Based on the stock McLaren 570S, enhancements include a pylon-mounted rear wing inspired by the GT4, which increases high-speed downforce by nearly 100kg.

It's even got on-board telemetry just like a racing vehicle with cameras picking up your every move.

The interior features a minimalistic, more track-oriented approach; parts of the carbon-fiber Monocell 2 chassis are exposed, there are carbon-shelled bucket seats, carbon sills and a bespoke carbon fiber bulkhead that features stowage space for a helmet.

You may be too late to grab one of the MSO X, but MSO would be happy to build one like it for you.

All ten-yes, just ten-examples of the MSO X have already been sold and delivered to customers. Chassis number #10 MSO X adopts a much darker colour scheme, with black and grey livery, inspired by the F1 GTR chassis #01R that raced and finished 1st overall at the 24 hours of Le Mans in 1995. Customers come to us with their thoughts and ideas and MSO works with them to set boundaries within which they can then let their imaginations run wild, ' said Jolyon Nash, McLaren's head of marketing.

Despite its racing-car vibe, Top Gear says the MSO X still comes with parking sensors, air conditioning and a touchscreen sat nav system.
