MSO Defined offers an exclusive range of additional features for your new or existing McLaren, available directly through your retailer. Each is designed to allow you to personalise the appearance and character of your car. In form. In finish. 

At MSO, the limits are set only by imagination. From a one-off finish, material or colour that reflects your individuality. To crafting a unique car that breaks the boundaries of conventional personalisation.

We were founded to maintain the seminal McLaren F1. We still do. But now our scope has grown… to care for each game-changing McLaren, and its owner through our servicing, maintenance and certification programmes.
