Just when you think MSO are getting bored with producing bespoke McLarens, another one gets announced. Following the reveal of the Atlantic Blue 720S at the Geneva Motor Show, McLaren Special Operations (MSO) has waved its magic over the practical(ish) 570GT. Priced at £179,950, just 100 will be made – but what does it offer?
Paint It Black
Well if you like black then you’re in for a treat as this shade has been plastered all over this car to make it look like a stealth bomber. The body has been layered with MSO Bespoke Carbon Black exterior paint, which is a new shade and is joined by 5 spoke diamond cut alloys, which also finish a black finish to them, with black brake calipers within them.
The black doesn’t stop there though – instead of the standard dark palladium components (such as front and rear splitters), they are finished in black, thanks to the MSO Black Pack. Step inside and naturally, the black theme continues, as you’ll find the cabin has been fitted with the MSO Black Collection Trim.
This means that buyers will get black Semi-Aniline Leather seats as well as Carbon Black alcantara trimmings to set the whole theme off. The seats display the MSO logo on the headrests, plus there is a ‘Dedication Plate’ to show off the car’s exclusivity, and even the car’s key has been given the MSO Black treatment.
Not Just Some Black Paint
There is more to this model than just black paint – the MSO Black 570GT also offers the MSO Defined Titanium SuperSports Exhaust and Sport Pack to offer more thrills, plus there’s kit to make it nicer to live with. For example, it comes with nose lift to make it more usable about town, plus it comes with a rear view camera, power adjust steering column and the ground-breaking 12-speaker Bowers & Wilkins audio system.
Rob Melville, Design Director at McLaren Automotive commented: “McLaren Special Operations allows our customers to fully express themselves through their cars; and the new 570GT MSO Black Collection is no different. Black is a colour associated with elegance, power and authority whilst also surrounded by a certain air of mystery. The end result remains true to the luxurious nature of the 570GT but we managed to further amplify its sleek, sporty character with a wealth of new MSO Defined options which I am sure will delight discerning owners.”
