In the past couple of months, there have been a number of special edition McLarens that have been released in the past few months. Some of these include the 720S Atlantic Blue and the 570S MSO X. Now, the newest member of the range is arguably more sinister than the rest, and they call it the MSO Black Collection. This McLaren 570GT package will only be limited to 100 examples worldwide, and will definitely see the sporty coupe draped in an all-black, stealth design.
Moving on to the outside, the 570GT will be dressed in a one-off Carbon Black finish, that will be complemented with an MSO Black Pack that replaces the Dark Palladium features available in the standard model.
This includes things like the front and rear splitters, side skirts, and air intakes, and all these will be finished in black. The new set of five twin-spoke lightweight forged wheels will also get a new gloss black diamond finish, which will then be wrapped in Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires. The package also adds carbon ceramic brakes and black brake calipers to the car.
As you enter the special edition 570GT’s cabin, do not be surprised if it’s much more well equipped. This is because a new MSO Black Collection trim has been fitted, and it includes a mixture of both Jet Black Leather with Carbon Black Alcantara. Everything from the center console, headliner, steering wheel, lower instrument panel and even speaker surrounds are coated in the unique finish.
To add some contrast, the seats have been covered in Semi-Aniline leather with the MSO logo embroidered on the headrest. Now, if black is your favourite colour, this must be enough black for you. In fact, even the key fob has been painted in Carbon Black too.
A Panoramic Roof has also been added with a black privacy tint glass that comes as a standard. This can be upgraded for an additional cost (£4,750). Customers may also get an electrochromic roof that comes in five different degrees of tint.
Rob Melville, Design Director at McLaren Automotive said that MSO allows their customers to express themselves, and that the 570GT MSO Black Collection is just one of those cars that resonate with some people. This is because black is a colour authority, power, and elegance. Furthermore, it creates a sleek, sporty character with a wealth of new MSO Defined options which Melville thinks will impress their discerning customers.
The McLaren 570GT MSO Black Collection will have a starting price of £179,950 (approximately $251,650). The automaker will begin deliveries this summer. And as mentioned earlier, there will only be 100 examples that will be delivered to consumers.
