Although most customers, including famed car collector Jay Leno , ordered their rare and expensive McLaren P1s in stock form, a few enthusiasts actually opted for their prized supercar to make a stop at McLaren Special Operations (MSO) before reaching their garage.
This is exactly what an Italian customer did, as he wanted his P1 to wear a bespoke paint job that’s not available on the standard vehicle and that we likely won’t see on any other P1 that’s scheduled to pass through the MSO workshop.
Finished in a dark shade of grey with bright-red accents on the front, the doors, and both sides of the taillights and rear diffuser, the McLaren P1 you’re about to see in the video above is also the only one sold and registered in Italy. If that’s not a rare sight, we don’t know what is.
As a brief reminder, McLaren built only 375 P1s and buyers have snatched them all up for at least $1.15 million. The British supercar makes use of a hybrid powertrain that churns a total of 903 horsepower and 1,100 pound-feet of torque.
