The limited edition models receive an optimized and remodeled front bumper. The lower part of it made from carbon fiber and the front flooring is constructed with using carbon Kevlar. This was inspired from the limited run HS edition.

The hood receives a McLaren F1inspired, black colored heritage badge, which was previously available only to MSO clients. These cars will sport light-weight alloys designated in the satin black color. The wheels are 19-inches for the front, and a pair 20-inchers in the rear.

These limited edition racing machines are available in three color choices : McLaren Orange, Carbon Black, and Supernova Silver. The body features several McLaren 50 logos to commemorating the anniversary edition.


The MSO team used carbon fiber inserts on the sill panel as well as on the floor mats. This car gets a full leather upgrade. There are also anniversary badges inside to highlight this limited edition.2013-McLaren-50-12C-and-50-12C-Spider-badge-C
