 previewing a collection of enhancements created by its bespoke division MSO, which was itself launched at pebble beach in 2012, the car is the first example of the recently-introduced ‘570GT’ to receive the attention of mclarens finest team of craftsmen and designers.  they have added styling, feature and material enhancements such as an electro-chromic roof.

complementing the pearl white finish is an ‘MSO piano black’ package




firstly, the ‘570GT’ by MSO concept delivers an improved aural experience both for the driver and onlookers thanks to its new exhaust system. manufactured from titanium and consequently 30% lighter than the standard stainless steel system, this exhaust is part of the evolution of the mclaren ‘675LT’ project, delivering a progressively richer and more characterful tone more immediately as the revs rise than the standard exhaust.  the MSO exhaust’s heat shields are also finished in a golden titanium nitride tint, visible through the rear air ducts, which naturally change color to a blue/purple as the system heats and cools through its cycle.

luxury saddle tan finish decorates the interior





externally, the luxury automobile is finished in elite ‘pearl white’ paintwork. complementing the pearl white finish is an ‘MSO piano black’ package, delivering a deep gloss black finish to exterior details including the wheels, side skirt, front and rear and door inserts, as well as interior details. recognizing the heat of the californian summer, the ‘570GT MSO concept’ features an electro-chromic roof.  currently in development, the electro-chromic roof takes the standard-fit glass roof with UV-protective interlayer and adds a further electro-chromic interlayer. using a touch-sensitive headlining, the electro-chromic roof can be adjusted through five defined points from almost clear to a rich, dark tint, adding a further level of comfort, privacy and protection for occupants.

completing the exterior treatment are MSO defined full-length sill panels in gloss carbon fibre. these complex, gloss-lacquered option cover the entire length of the car’s sills. the interior features a ‘by mclaren’ luxury finish in saddle tan with an integrated 12-speaker bowers and wilkins hi-fi system. harmonizing with the enhanced exterior carbon fibre content, the concept features the MSO defined carbon fibre interior pack in gloss lacquer. to complete the bespoke nature of the concept, interior components, interior door inserts and tunnel sides are all finished in a rich gloss lacquer.

the luxury racer builds upon the recently-introduced ‘570GT’ –- offering up to 370 litres of storage, plus a suspension and steering that’s finely-tuned to deliver longer-distance comfort. the front luggage area provides 150 litres of stowage, while a further 220 litres of space is available behind the seats on the leather-lined touring deck. this additional space is accessed via the side opening glass hatch bringing the total storage space to 370 litres. the glass hatch opens on the kerbside whether left- or right-hand drive and is framed by carbon fibre providing significant torsional rigidity.

under the skin, the long-distance comfort is created by fine tuning of the suspension, including a reduction in spring rate stiffness of 15 percent at the front and 10 percent at the rear. independent adaptive dampers can be dynamically adjusted through normal, sport and track settings. in addition, the electro-hydraulic steering system offers a two percent reduced ratio, specifically designed to smooth out driver inputs at high cruising speed.

the ‘570GT’ is fitted with the mclaren-developed 3.8-litre twin turbo V8 ‘M838TE’ engine. power and torque outputs are 562 bhp and 600 nm respectively and power is delivered to the rear wheels via a seven-speed seamless-shift transmission with adjustment through normal, sport and track settings to produce an exhilarating drive. this delivers performance more commonly seen in the supercar segment: 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 3.4 seconds, 0-200 km/h (0-124 mph) in 9.8 seconds, with a top speed of 328 km/h (204 mph). despite supercar performance figures, there have been no sacrifices to the everyday drivability and practicality of the ‘570GT’.
