Buy a McLaren with Bitcoin

We’re not exactly sure how much each of the 10 vehicles crafted by McLaren Special Operations, 10 MSO X cars that are inspired by the McLaren 570S GT4 race car, vehicles that were built to order by McLaren Newport Beach, retailed for, but we have a couple of clues that indicate that it would be fair to say “a lot.” That is, while consulting the website for McLaren Newport Beach we saw that they had on offer a 2016 675LT.

That is, while consulting the website for McLaren Newport Beach we saw that they had on offer a 2016 675LT. It is priced at $449,880.

Certainly not all the cars are priced quite so stratospherically.

But that isn’t an outlier, either.

The other bit of information that makes us think that the cars went rather dearly—and they were all sold within eight months after they were commissioned last July—is the fact that McLaren Newport Beach accepts Bitcoin.

As is typical of McLaren cars, the MSO X cars are a study in carbon fiber deployment (know that McLaren hasn’t built a car without a carbon fiber chassis since 1993).

These cars feature a carbon fiber Monocell 2 chassis that is exposed to show what it is made of, a functional goose-neck carbon fiber roof snorkel, and a carbon fiber roof, hood, side skirts and engine cover.

There are carbon fiber sill panels and a carbon fiber bulkhead. And there is a carbon fiber center console, as well as carbon fiber shell bucket seats.

These cars, incidentally, are designed not only to be driven on tracks, but capable of being driven to tracks.
