McLaren 650S Project Kilo Goes Carbon Crazy

McLaren Special Operations’ latest project has gone carbon fiber crazy.

The British automaker’s bespoke division has created a one-off 650S called “Project Kilo.” According to McLaren Special Operations, it is “one of the most personalized, bespoke projects that MSO have undertaken to date.” With a comprehensive list of body components that have been replaced with carbon fiber, this 650S likely shaves off a quite a few pounds from its weight, though McLaren didn’t share details.

Carbon fiber options on the MSO 650S Project Kilo include a new roof, rear diffuser, sill panels and instrument cluster bezel with integrated shift lights. Also added to the unique one-off project are new aluminum water and oil filler caps match painted to the body color while sporting McLaren orange logos. The orange shade can also be found on the inner door seams while the exhaust heat shield has been plated in 24-karat gold.

Paying homage to the birthplace of the company’s founder, Bruce McLaren, a small drawing of a kiwi bird can be seen on the engine cover to represent New Zealand.
