McLaren Automotive today revealed a modified version of its new 570GT model.
The 570GT by MSO Concept has been created by McLaren Special Operations (MSO), which offers customers bespoke customisation. The new creation is designed to showcase the team’s capabilities to potential customers.
The highlight of the concept is an electro-chromic glass roof. It’s touch-sensitive and occupants can change the level of tint by pressing on the glass. There are five grades to scroll through, from almost clear to full blackout.
The car’s attractive lines have been accentuated thanks to the pearl white paintwork and contrasting black details, such as the wheels, bumper inserts and side skirts.
The engine is the same 3.8-litre twin turbocharged V8 found in the standard car, which means 562bhp and a 0-62mph time of just 3.4 seconds. The stainless steel exhaust system has been replaced with a titanium version, which is 30 per cent lighter and offers a different note as the revs rise.
The interior has also been lavished with upgrades. Almost every surface is covered in saddle tan leather, while the centre console, door inserts and drive select buttons are surrounded by carbon fibre.
Paul Mackenzie, Executive Director of McLaren Special Operations, said: “Closely following the reveal of the GT addition to the Sports Series family, we showcase the breadth of McLaren Special Operations’ personalisation work, this time focusing on bespoke engineering design and components.”
The McLaren 570GT by MSO Concept will make its public debut at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California this weekend.
