McLaren is one of those storied marques that has come along way.

Just think. About 20 years ago it stumbled into the consumer market with one of the most incredible vehicles ever built, the F1.

Now with the MUCH lower barrier of entry MP4-12C, the brand has given access to many more buyers as it now has a "volume" product. Keep in mind this is all relative.

But any automaker producing high-end exotica knows one thing. If its worth its salt, it will have to have a special division that can do anything someone with deep pockets wants. Ferrari does it, Aston Martin has the "Q" program and Bugatti is more than happy to serve its customers anything they want.

McLaren has always run with this crowd but now it's starting to make it more well known. Dubbed the Special Operations divsion, these are the folks that can make your McLaren dream come true.

That said, it recently showed off what it's capable of via an all-new concept car based on the MP4-12C.

McLaren's Facebook announcement follows:

McLaren Special Operations provides a bespoke engineering service to those wishing to make their McLaren even more distinctive.

The MSO 12C Concept is packed full of bespoke features including a revised bonnet, front wing louvres, rear wing vents, a unique Airbrake and a new roof featuring an integrated snorkel channelling air to the engine. These revisions are all crafted in lightweight carbon fibre. Titanium wheel bolts, along with oil and water filler caps, shed further weight from the already light 12C.

The interior gains more carbon fibre upgrades in the form of body colour switch packs and bezels. These are complemented by a new carbon fibre instrument cluster with integrated shift lights.

The keen-eyed amongst you will also notice that the Light Weight Wheels have been diamond cut in a new design.

So, what would you have MSO produce?
