The MSO division is known for their skills and when they tweak the McLaren 570GT, it’s a worthy reason to be excited about the launch.
The concept model is going to be revealed for the first time at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance event. Designed by MSO, the new 570GT gets its name, powertrain and other changes from the team. The crew which worked on the base model will give them complete freedom so that those at MSO could go crazy with their ideas and offer an exhilarating experience to boost the brand’s image.
McLaren570GT concept version is said to use a brand new exhaust system made by the division. According to the crew, it should offer a refined and improved aural experience for the users. After all, a lot of buyers go for brands like McLaren, Ferrari and Lamborghini for the sound the engines make. The average company couldn’t boast of such claims as they usually cater to the general public and not car enthusiasts.
The entire pipework used in the new concept is comprised of expensive titanium material. Titanium has always been the robust choice for exquisite car makers and the MSO division as adopted it for their version of the McLaren 570GT. It reduces the overall weight of the model by 30%. A characterful tone is expected to be produced by the new exhaust system in which the shields are made of golden titanium nitride. The internals will continue to change into blue and purple cars as the pipe heats up.
While the base model is being offered with an elite pearl white paintjob, MSO surprisingly offers a piano black package. The company hardly embraces black but this time they use a black finish in the side vents, door sills and wheels contrasting the pearl white exterior. The car is powered by the same 3.8-liter twin turbo V8 engine that delivers up to 562 horsepower. Acceleration capacity is pegged at 3.4 seconds to reach from 0 to 62 miles per hour.
Luxury is ample on the inside with a Bowers and Wilkins stereo system. The top is equipped with electric chromic roof which filters and allows sunlight to pass through for those long sunny drives. Infotainment system uses a touchscreen display which automatically dims when the interior gets dark. Passengers can choose between five different tints for the top glass panel. The rich, dark tint offers complete privacy just like any ordinary roof would do.
