I am delighted to have sold this sensational McLaren “MSO HS” – nicknamed the 688HS.

Please call me to discuss your interest in locating an alternative version of this very rare car.

One of 25 cars ever built and certainly 1 of only a handful in the UK.
With so few ever produced and rarely ever coming out of the care of the first owner’s, it is without doubt a vastly collectable car today and in the future.

The MSO HS (688HS) is its’ own model, based upon the already exhilarating 675 LongTail but with extensive revisions, individual chassis numbers and dedication plates.

McLaren Special Operations created the HS (High Sport) with a hand built and Blueprinted variant of the LT’s impressive 3.8 Twin Turbo V8, tuned to an even higher performance (678bhp) and with improved delivery of power.

Externally the HS features a host of ultra lightweight and bespoke aerodynamic elements, featuring redesigned front bumper with dive planes, carbon Roof snorkel and the incredible active high level airbrake GT3 rear wing, all help to generate an increased downforce of 220kg at 150mph – an extraordinary figure for a road car capable of such staggering performance, combined with versatile breadth of ability.

Each MSO HS had extensive levels of bespoke detailing from MSO and this car, chassis #007, was also ordered with a large number of these styling features, creating a totally unique and unrepeatable specification.
