So the HS seems to be a 'Special Operations' car.

Are there many more to come? Anyone heard any rumours of new ones?

It will be incredible to see what people think up.

I got an MSO car. Alcantara with space seat inserts. Very tame.

This post by trax on TeamSpeed.com is relevant:

I'm sure I posted this months ago - but I was told all 5 cars were for US customers

There is also another customer car currently being built which has a totally different exterior

I get the impression that if you are willing to pay up Mclaren will build you anything
Guess some people just aren't willing to wait for P12. :cool:

Another photo - wowsers! :cool:



Limiting this to 5 examples is going to be tough. They'll have people storming the gates at the MPC to get their hands on one of these with the reactions I have seen.

I am not completely convinced by those modifications. Of course, much more aggressive, but the standard design has grown on me and I like its very classical lines a lot now.
It's busier, for sure. Not as clean looking, which is why I think the real GT3 variant will be more integrated and cohesive. This one really does seem like it is screaming out for a big rear wing.

Hopefully the other 3 of 5 will be in some different colours, so we can see how they look.

That is a good point - could the original design be as enduring as the F1. It will be interesting to see which ages better over time...the 12C or 458.

Here's a 12C fitted with an alcantara/carbon wheel made by Special Ops:



I'd pay extra for that for sure.

depthofshine has only shared this one other photo from the car that I can see:



He posts here too and can probably be swayed to share a few more though. I sent him a message. :cool:

Looks alot more tactile than the full MSO carbon wheel,and i would hope will come in alot cheaper than the £4000 of that one,even though i thought it looked great when they first showed if,i would go for this one
Any of you guys with your cars already try to contact MSO to modify your cars? My cars on the water now, but I'd definitely love to spring for the alcantara on the wheel. Love it in my Porsche.

No Hyper,im enjoying it too much,maybe in the spring or i will just wait for my next one,although i do like the treatment on some of the MSO wheels so i will get the winter over first
