The McLaren MSO 688 Hypersport. Which is the "0,5" in 1,5 new cars. Let me explain.
Pretty early on in the year 2016, I decided to make it a ritual to make a McLaren coupé in 10-wide scale. This philosophic decision whether it should be something ended in one of my favorite creations to date: the McLaren 650S. This was then converted into a 675 LT. The 675 LT was the one I included in the different McLaren design pieces, like the yacht and the bus. Although the 675 LT was pretty nice, it lacked a few things that McLaren really needed.
Fun thing is that my design strategy is starting to look like real McLaren's strategy. The 2014 version of the MP4-12C was scratch built, the 650S in 2016 was based on that and the 675 LT was based on that.
So is this MSO HS. However, I changed some significant things. The engine and interior are too cramped to make more detailed than I could, so they haven't changed. The front has been smoothened, added some new bits in the splitter and the HS canards. The rear has barely changed, the diffusor has been adjusted to be slightly more realistic. The doors have been made 1 stud shorted but extend to the bottom of the car. And ofcourse, the adjustable 675 spoiler has been replaced by a fixed wing. The carbon roof and the intake were the final things to be added to this special McLaren.
All in all, the MSO HS has changed from it's predecessors, but not significantly enough to call it a new car. It did fit the Hellcat very well, that's why I decided to post it and feature it for the LUGnuts challenge.
I went for the dark red color that McLaren has used for their press pictures. Here you can see the new doors, and the wing, adding to the crazy bodykit style of the HS.
@Elk, Oran: thanks guys. @Nick: that is arguably the best McLaren color around, especially on a P1. Thanks! @killswitch: my recent attempts have been pretty bad, I might get back into it again in the future.
