McLaren said members of MSO LAB will have access to NFTs and opportunities and utilities. The latter will also provide limited-edition first genesis NFT collection set featuring the brand.

Through McLaren’s MSO LAB membership one can get access to member-only channels and interaction with McLaren Automotive and MSO teams and will also get early intel and access to exclusive rewards. Early members of the community will receive an unseen digital sketch from the McLaren design team, a behind-the-scenes virtual tour of McLaren Technology Centre and opportunities to attend events conducted by the British luxury supercar maker. McLaren along with the MSO LAB community will explore the possibilities of the Web3 era by harnessing new and innovative ways.
