2018 McLaren 570GT MSO Black Collection looks darker than ever

Article by Christian A., on March 16, 2018

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.

McLAREN 570GT IS BACK IN BLACK WITH THE MSO BLACK COLLECTION LIMITED TO 100 EXAMPLES WORLDWIDE

McLaren Special Operations (MSO), the bespoke division of McLaren Automotive, is extending its Sports Series offering with the 570GT MSO Black Collection. Featuring new MSO Bespoke Carbon Black exterior paint, as well as an MSO Defined Titanium SuperSports Exhaust and Sport Pack dynamic handling package to further amplify its sporty character, the collection is limited to only 100 examples globally. Priced at £179,950, the car promises to be a true collectable and offers enhanced driving thrills and a wealth of unique MSO content.

The exterior of the vehicle is finished in Carbon Black, a striking and extremely deep colour, developed specifically by McLaren Special Operations. 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. Completing the look are the 5 Twin-Spoke Lightweight Forged Wheels with a new Gloss Black Diamond Wheel Finish shed with Pirelli P Zero™ Corsa Tyres and Black Brake Calipers with Carbon Ceramic Brakes.

The luxuriously-appointed interior of the McLaren 570GT is further enhanced with new MSO Black Collection Trim, which includes a unique combination of Jet Black Leather with Carbon Black Alcantara® accents on the centre tunnel, lower instrument panel, headliner, steering wheel and speaker surrounds. The Electric and Heated Memory Sports Seats are wrapped in Semi-Aniline Leather featuring unique MSO logo embroidery on the headrests. The high attention to detail continues with an MSO Defined Ignition Key painted in Carbon Black and a bespoke Dedication Plate located under the centre console. A Panoramic Roof incorporating a UV-filtering black privacy tint glass is standard and can be upgraded at additional cost to the MSO Defined Electrochromic Panoramic Roof that was recently introduced to the MSO Defined range for the 570GT only. The electrochromic roof – a £4,750 option at point of vehicle purchase – allows customers to select their preference from five different degrees of tint using electrochromic ‘smart glass’ technology.

The McLaren Sports Series is renowned for delivering a thrilling driving experience and the 570GT MSO Black Collection continues this tradition. The car features carbon-ceramic discs combined with the new dynamic Sport Pack, which gives customers sharper dynamic settings of the 570S Coupé and Spider. Increasing the drama even further is the MSO Defined Titanium SuperSports Exhaust with Nano Black finisher, which reduces the weight of the vehicle by five kilograms and provides a crisper exhaust tone which is 5dB louder than in the standard system. The 570GT MSO Black Collection also includes the GT Upgrade Pack comprising Vehicle Lift, 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.”
