Expect no two cars to be the same, given the full gamut of McLaren Special Operations (MSO) personalisation options will be offered. There's an incredibly clean silhouette, thanks to a lack of side mirrors - the Speedtail uses cameras instead - and there are no hinges to interfere with the workings of the active aerodynamics.
