There have been more than a few special edition McLarens released in the past few months. The new McLaren 570GT MSO Black Collection by the company’s bespoke McLaren Special Operations (MSO) is arguably more sinister than the rest. Only 100 examples of this limited edition MSO-tuned model will be made available worldwide, at a price of $251,154, with deliveries set to commence this summer.
The exterior is finished in Carbon Black, a striking and extremely deep colour. The stealth theme extends to the MSO Defined Black Pack replacing standard-fit Dark Palladium components including front and rear splitters, side skirts and air intakes with black. To complete the dark aesthetic, MSO added new Gloss Black Diamond wheels with black calipers and carbon ceramic brakes.
In the cabin, the 570GT special edition story continues the theme with jet black leather and carbon black Alcantara accents on the centre tunnel, lower instrument panel, headliner, steering wheel and speaker surrounds. A Panoramic Roof incorporating UV-filtering black privacy tint glass is standard. Meanwhile, the electric and heated memory Sports Seats are wrapped in Semi-Aniline leather and have unique MSO logo embroidery on the headrests.
“Black is a color associated with elegance, power and authority whilst also surrounded by a certain air of mystery,” stated McLaren design director, Rob Melville. “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.”
