McLaren's badass bespoke division McLaren Special Operations has come out with another killer custom carbon fiber supercar, with all 25 units sold to its best customers well before the public announcement was made.

The MSO Carbon Series 675LT, limited to 25 units globally and all spoken for already, is based on the 675LT Spider. The beast boasts a 666 hp 3.8-liter twin turbo V8 whipping it from 0-62 mph in 2.9 seconds with a top speed of 203 mph.

The MSO Carbon Series LT was born after McLaren customers went wild – in a gentlemanly sort of way – for the one-off custom "naked" blue carbon P1 Hypercar displayed at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

The MSO Carbon Series LT is a nod to the "Longtail" look established by the eye-popping McLaren F1 in the late '90s. The Carbon Series LT was developed with a focus on light weight and optimized aerodynamic performance and features a gloss carbon fiber finish to the entire body.

As on the already impressive 675LT Spider, the front bumper with larger splitter and end plates, front under body, side skirts, side intakes, lower side intakes, rear bodyside lower, rear fenders, rear deck, rear bumper, diffuser and "Longtail" Airbrake are all fashioned from carbon fiber but with a gloss finish revealing the inherent weave of the material.

 In addition, the MSO Carbon Series LT is fitted with a gloss finished carbon fiber electrically retractable roof and tonneau, A-pillars, bonnet and rear deck, side blades, complete front and rear fenders, and even fuel filler flap.

The front fenders also feature GT3-inspired functional louvers. The McLaren Track Telemetry pack, which includes three track cameras, is fitted as standard equipment. 

In total, the MSO Carbon Series LT features around 40 percent additional carbon fiber parts over the standard car, of which the original 500 unit production run sold out in weeks after the its debut in December 2015.

The MSO Carbon Series LT is only the third model to wear the LT badge. The first, the 675LT Coupe, arrived last year, followed by the 675LT Spider (above). Production of the MSO Carbon Series LT begins this autumn with first deliveries expected before the end of 2016.

McLaren specifically doesn't sell their limited edition cars to "flippers" however, so don't think you'll be able to pick one up on the secondary market next year. 

Just smile and wave when one blows past....
