A McLaren P1 modified by MSO has been filmed in Malaysia featuring an extensive array of tweaks.

The vehicle was spotted in Kuala Lumpur featuring a gold finish on the wheels, engine cover as well as on the exhaust shield as a throwback to the McLaren F1. The same expensive metal adorns the badges along with some of the interior cabin bits and pieces.

Interestingly, the owner asked McLaren to use a special VIN and a chassis number separate from the official 001-375. In the attached footage you can hear the P1 idling while in Race mode and driving off solely on the power provided by the 179 HP & 260 Nm electric motor. Together with the 737 HP & 720 Nm twin-turbo V8 3.8-liter engine, the McLaren P1 offers a combined output of 916 HP & 900 Nm. An even more powerful P1 GTR with 1,000 HP (736 kW) is in the works but only for the track.
