Usually when you see a hyper car with a crazy two-tone paint work it is a wrap done by some tuner to give the car a temporary fresh look. But that is not the case with this McLaren P1 MSO. The owner of this car decided it would be a good idea to give McLaren Special Operations a whole lot of money to paint his car like a milkweed bug.
So this will probably be the first ever McLaren P1 MSO with a simple and understated wrap to cover up the insane factory paintwork. That is, of course, when the owner finally gets fed up with this scheme and find out he can’t sell the car because not many people share his taste. It’s not that the design is positively ugly. It’s just that it’s too elaborate and attention seeking and therefore not cool.
And just for the record, here’s the milkweed bug:
McLaren P1 technical highlights:
Aero-led design produces more downforce than any other production road car
-916PS (903 hp) generated by 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol engine coupled to an electric motor gives tremendous power and instant throttle response with an electronically limited top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph)
-Active ride height, and aerodynamics work with large adjustable rear wing to give ground effect suction and optimised downforce
-IPAS (Instant Power Assist System) and DRS (Drag Reduction System) offer instant boost of power and straight-line speed
-The MonoCage is one of the lightest carbon fibre full-body structures used in any road car to date, weighing 90kg. This weight includes the roof and lower structures, roof snorkel, engine air intake cavity, battery and power electronics housing
-MonoCage chassis includes fibres more than five times the strength of the best grade titanium, and includes the use of Kevlar
-0 to 300 km/h in less than 17 seconds – five seconds quicker than the legendary McLaren F1
