McLaren has debuted an exclusive 650S project bespoke to the Middle East, as the covers have come off the 650S Spider Al Sahara 79 by MSO.
The special edition model lines up alongside the 570S Coupé and a customised example of the McLaren P1 at the Dubai International Motor Show 2015.
Contrasting detailing on the exterior of the 650S Spider Al Sahara 79 includes a retractable hard top and lightweight forged alloy wheels finished in gloss black. Carbon fibre is used for the side intakes, front splitter and rear diffuser, while aggressive, full-length, carbon-fibre MSO-branded side blades provide a more purposeful and sculpted appearance.
Power comes from the multi-award-winning mid-mounted 3.8-litre twin turbo V8 engine seen in the 650S Coupé and 650S Spider, producing 641bhp at 7,250rpm and 500lb/ft of torque. Performance and economy figures remain unchanged, with zero to 62mph reached in 3.0 seconds, and a top speed of 204mph, while achieving 24.2mpg (EU combined) cycle and CO2 emissions of 275g/km.
The McLaren 650S Spider Al Sahara 79 by MSO has a retail price of 1,456,308 AED (£262,481).
