McLaren MSO HS arrives at BeaulieuBack

Meet the latest car to roar into Beaulieu – the very rare McLaren MSO HS.

With only 25 models ever built, fans can enjoy McLaren’s seventh MSO off its short production run by visiting the National Motor Museum this Spring.

The McLaren MSO is a specially commissioned supercar based on the already-rapid 675LT and features a host of weight saving and bespoke aerodynamic features. It comes with McLaren’s M83 8TL twin-turbocharged V8 engine, producing a whopping 675bhp.

Each MSO HS was built to its own unique specifications to suit the bespoke requirements of its owner, so no MSO is entirely the same. In fact, some of the owners requested to remain anonymous so McLaren kept production under wraps – there was no big reveal of the car much to the dismay of fans.

The MSO HS on display at Beaulieu is the seventh model to be built, and is one of only six built with right-hand drive. Its also the only version finished in a subtle charcoal grey.

For those lucky enough to get behind the wheel of the MSO, the car can produce 675bhp from its 4-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine, meaning the car can race up to 60mph from rest in just 2.8 seconds, and reach a top speed of 203mph.

The letters ‘HS’ after its name stand for ‘High Sport’ and are very apt as the car is the perfect model for a spot of racing or a high-speed blast.

The McLaren MSO HS is currently on loan to the National Motor Museum and will form part of the Beaulieu collection which features more than 250 vehicles and tells the story of British motoring history for visiting fans.

Like many other McLaren specials, all 25 cars were accounted for before they even came off the production line, and there is no news as to their whereabouts – some owners impressed to McLaren their desire to remain anonymous, and it is rumoured they paid the company to keep their identity under wraps.

So, we can’t be entirely accurate with the price paid for this particular model as the highly individual nature of the car means that no two are were built the same, suffice to say a buyer could expect a significant increase in price over the £259,000 paid out for the 675LT.

If you’re thinking about visiting Beaulieu this spring, a ticket includes admission to the National Motor Museum, new-look World of Top GearOn Screen Cars, the ancestral Montagu home of Palace House, 13th century Beaulieu Abbey and the stunning grounds and gardens.
