McLaren Announces New Special Operations Customizing Division

If you are one of the few lucky people in this world to be able afford an MP4-12C, but you want the supercar to differ from the one parked in the garage of your obviously wealthy neighbor, the new Special Operations division of McLaren Automotive has a solution.

The new division, which was announced at thePebble Beach Concours d’Elegance show, aims to create bespoke versions in order to satisfy customer needs for differentiation.
The car on display had a satin matte “Volcano Orange” paint with a black roof, “diamond cut” finish alloy wheels with black inners, and plenty of carbon fibre applied on the sills, the steering wheel, the front wheel arches, the engine cover vents, the rear deck vent and the wiper covers. Now, that’ a lot of carbon…
If orange is not your style, perhaps you will find the chrome-coated MP4-

12C painted in the same lightweight AkzoNobel Sikkens’ color used exclusively on McLaren’s Formula 1 cars more appealing.
Unfortunately, even customizing has its limits: this drag-minimizing paint will not be available on the Special Operations catalogue and will solely adorn Hamilton’s and Button’s cars.
