McLaren’s Special Operations Division is known for being one of a few corporate havens for billionaires wanting the custom supercars that are the stuff of dreams and impossible to order from Ferrari or other like manufacturers.
However, there is the little-known offshoot under the McLaren umbrella that challenges the craziness of the highly exclusive cars like the upcoming X-1 by MSO.
That would be none other than the McLaren Applied Technologies, the McLaren wing Apple allegedly tried to buy, the one that most sounds as if it was named by Tony Stark.
Continuing with parallels to Tony Stark, Men’s Health has gone in-depth with company’s research wing to investigate its most recent undertaking: building the futuristic exo-steel brace for the anonymous billionaire client so that their debilitating injuries are more bearable, don’t impede on the daily activities.
Basically, this is a closest thing to Iron Man’s suit that we are likely to see in our lifetimes. For reasons that none of us will probably find out, the well-heeled client required multiple surgeries that left their core weakened.
And to solve the issues associated with the damage, a client came to McLaren Applied Technologies in order to find out if its team of the engineers could cook up the bionic concoction of next-level medical technology.
The result is the chest plate and shield made of the medley of high-strength materials like carbon fiber, Dyneema, and other materials usually seen on the McLaren Automotive’s supercars.
Like its sister company’s cars, and the armor vest does not come cheap, costing its client $250,000, or just a smidgen under what the new McLaren 720S goes for.
