McLaren Special Operations (MSO), the division of McLaren Automotive in charge of the conveyance of bespoke undertakings, will display the McLaren X-1 Concept - a stunning irregular supercar - at The Quail, a restrictive occasion on August 17, 2012 that is a highlight of the Pebble Beach weekend in Monterey, USA.
'One of our clients who already owned a McLaren F1, a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren and now a 12C, wanted a unique car,' says MSO Programme Director, Paul MacKenzie. 'The conversation began with our Executive Chairman Ron Dennis almost three years ago − before the 12C was even launched. The client wanted a machine that had all the capability of the 12C but wrapped in a unique body that reflected his needs and personality.'
'The client was very clear in his own mind what he wanted. But the only styling feature prescribed were metal brightwork rails running from the nose, over the shoulderline and hips, to the rear of the greenhouse.'
