"An MSO Personal Commission is the highest level of partnership between a customer and McLaren Special Operations, undertaken to design, develop and create unique interpretations of McLaren cars, expertly tailored to meed the exact requirements of the owner", said company exec, Jolyon Nash.

One lucky McLaren customer is due to take delivery of a twin pair of MSO commissioned cars. They're the team behind all manner of special editions and specialist commissions, the first of which was the Gerry Anderson-esque X-1.

Bodystyles aside, the only detail separating the two cars is the finish; satin on the coupe and gloss on the spider. McLaren Special Operations is now seeing an increasing number of customers enquiring about bespoke and unique cars. The steering wheel has a carbon fiber upper and lower, with black Alcantara grips and a Delta Red center stripe. The front bumper, hood, louvered fenders, roof scoop, rear deck, and side mirror arms and casings are all made of carbon fiber. Finished in black, gloss and satin, to match the respective cars, the five-spoke wheels mimic the 675LT's as well.

Other personalisation touches include Delta Red pinstripes, an MSO-branded key and a "dedication" plaque marking the two cars out a unique pair.

The interior design of the cars is arguably even more distinctive than the exterior.

Inside, black Alcantara covers the dashboard, contrasted by red bucket seats complete with MSO R embroidery. Switches are in gloss black and vent mechanisms are satin black, with bezels in carbon fibre. Today, McLaren announced that one customer is about to take home a almost identical pair of cars completely tailored to his tastes. To that end both the Coupe and Spider here have been upgraded to 688HS spec, which means the 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 gets hand-polished cylinder heads and exhaust ports to tickle power up to - you've got it - 688hp. A bespoke instrument cluster display with shift lights is also present. The exhaust features a crossover muffler to optimize exhaust flow.
