dont think they come with MSO parts(mine didnt),Unless the factory have decided to bring something new out. Mine went back to Mclaren for MSO Upgrades,you have to chose which available upgrades you want, its been there a month already and will be ready end of december.
they say you can even dream up your own unavailable designs of anything and they will make it for you at a price :)
they were telling me they made new moulds for some special fenders and splitters for one customer who bought 5 cars and they agreed never to sell any of his designs to other customers... so i guess with MSO the worlds your oyster. I know this because i asked if i could buy those parts :(

Budd,the 50th anniversary cars come with many MSO options,such as the front bumper,the 5 cars you refer to are the HS model,most of the parts are now available from MSO,except the bumper,but you can now get the vented rear and front wings,as you say ,if you can pay for it you can have it,that is the MSO motto.Looking forward to your Pics :)

Sorry Andy,Thanks for the correction, I didnt know there was a specific MSO model available now, What i meant was I sent mine back for MSO treatment.

Buddyclub is a Worldwide brand name and group of companies who develop tuning parts for race cars, we have always raced cars, we started with Hondas because in the 90s not many companies knew much about Honda engines because they are very complex, the brand has grown from strength to strength. We have distribution in Japan,SE Asia,UK(Eu),USA,AU,NZ, we still race Honda but have recently moved into Mclaren as well (not that we will be developing parts for these babies) just as an advertising medium and Pay to Drive facility. My opposite numbers in Asia Also drive 12c road cars so i thought what the hell. I told the Mc guys i was looking for something earlier in the year and they called me up when this one came up.

here it is on the Manchester Mclaren website, before it went back to MSO.
