Britain never built a stealth bomber for the air but McLaren Special Operations has made one for the road.
Flying under the radar in supercar territory is the limited edition 570GT that adds a number of option packs and blacked-out kit to elevate it over the Sport Series car it's based on.
Finished in custom Stealth exterior paint, the 570GT MSO receives complimenting black front splitter, rear diffuser, side skirts and air intakes as well as carbon ceramic brakes with black callipers behind gloss black and brushed aluminium twin-spoke forged alloy wheels.
Inside is just as aphotic and adds the Black Trim Collection pack with Jet Black leather trim, ‘MSO’ embroidery on perforated electric heated seats, Alcantara centre console, steering wheel, and surrounds and an MSO plaque below the dash
McLaren design director Rob Melville says the MSO edition will strike a chord with its customer base.
“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 included GT Upgrade pack adds 12-speaker Bowers & Wilkins sound system, power adjustable steering column, rear view camera and vehicle lift.
The only item on the options list is an electrochromatic panoramic sunroof with five shades of tint, and owners will be reminded of their black beauty with a unique blacked-out MSO key fob.
Improving the 570GT's dynamics is factory-fitted Sport Pack which replaces the steering rack, damper actuators and uprights and adds Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres as fitted on the 570S. McLaren Special Operations also adds a 5kg lighter SuperSports titanium exhaust with dual Nano black tips for guttural roar.
Just 100 570GT MSO special editions will be available globally. Pricing is yet to be confirmed for Australia, where the standard 570GT starts from $406,800.
