McLaren Sabre chassis number 11 is heading to Mecum Monterey 2022 (August 18 to August 20) in Monterey, California. Designed specifically for the United States market as an MSO commission through McLaren Special Operations (MSO), the hypercar is a show vehicle for the road. It offers thrilling performance and features one-of-a-kind design and a surprisingly compliant suspension that makes even the longest of road trips enjoyable.
Fittted with the most powerful non-hybrid McLaren twin-turbo V8 engine to date and a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, the Sabre has 824bhp and 590lb-ft of torque, with a maximum speed of 218 mph, making it the fastest-ever two-seater McLaren. The active rear air diffusers, McLaren’s first-ever, limits drag on the straights while going into downforce mode under braking.
The McLaren Sabre chassis 11 is finished in Liquid Argentum paint, accented by Gloss Visual Carbon Fibre (VCF) and Liquid Papaya pinstripes and interwoven VCF graphics on the side blades. The exterior also features Volcano Orange brake calipers with Black McLaren logo and diamond-milled 7-spoke wheels finished in Gloss Black with Liquid Argentum center-lock nuts.
The interior features a Volcano Orange driver’s seat and contrasting Carbon Black passenger seat, which are complemented with contrasting MSO logos embroidered on the headrests and Liquid Papaya seat shell pinstripes. Visual Satin Carbon Fibre interior accents are boosted with brushed Azores air vent bezels, steering wheel paddles, central screen bezel, and door strut and release.
MSO’s Commissions program starts with a blank canvas, and from there, in close collaboration with the customer, a journey leads to the realization of an extraordinary vision. An exceptionally close partnership between MSO’s Commissions team and its customers allows for the development of a unique synergy, seen from the drawing board all the way to the road, and beyond into the ownership experience.
The MSO Commissions customer experience includes a close working relationship with the development team, including designers, engineers, and test drivers. Each of the 15 hypercars was individually hand-built in a dedicated facility in Woking, UK, and each customer took part in a personal one-to-one spec session.
