How to make a desirable car even more attractive.

The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance will always have a special place in McLaren’s heart as this was the venue where the McLaren Special Operations division was launched in 2012. For this year’s edition, the Woking-based marque has decided to bring its latest model, the 570GT. However, it’s not the regular version because it has been pampered by MSO with a series of mechanical and visual upgrades.

For starters, gone is the standard stainless steel exhaust system which has been replaced by a titanium version managing to shave off 30 percent of the weight. Not only is it lighter, but it also gives McLaren’s grand tourer a more powerful soundtrack as the revs rise. The MSO Exhaust is based on the one developed for the sold-out 675LT and comes with special heat shields featuring a golden titanium nitride tint noticeable through the air ducts.

The showcar has received a fancy paint called ‘Elite Pearl White’ combined with deep gloss black accents noticeable on the side skirts, door inserts, wheels, and also inside the cabin. MSO has also fitted the 570GT with an electro-chromic roof which is currently being developed for the production car. It adds an electro-chromic interlayer to the car’s standard glass roof featuring an UV-protective interlayer. Those inside the car will be able to adjust the electro-chromic roof via a touch-sensitive headliner providing five settings, ranging from a clear to a dark tint.

To make it even more special, MSO has given the 570GT a set of gloss carbon fiber side sills as well as a matching carbon fiber interior pack featuring a gloss lacquer finish. The cabin finished in Saddle Tan hosts a 12-speaker Bowers and Wilkins Hi-Fi system to make those long journeys even more pleasant and relaxing as you would expect from a proper GT.

The McLaren 570GT by MSO Concept will be on display at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance to preview a series of optional goodies which will be added to the catalog in the near future.
