Is this uber-black special edition 570GT Batman’s ideal courtesy car? Yes, yes it is…

Written by: Neil

With 562bhp and a five-star review from Autocar, McLaren’s 570GT is already a spectacular car, but the Surrey-based brand has thwacked on another layer of awesomeness with the forthcoming 570GT MSO Black Collection.

It’s the work of McLaren Special Operations (MSO) and by letting the bespoke division loose on the 570GT, they’ve quite literally sent the carbon fibre-tubbed mid-engined supercar to the dark side.

Priced at £179,950 and limited to just 100 examples, the 570GT MSO Black Collection is as dark as a midnight sky on a moonless night, draped in a bespoke carbon black exterior paint job – a striking and extremely deep colour that was developed specifically by McLaren Special Operations.

The stealth theme stretches onto the front and rear splitters, side skirts and air intakes too, while five twin-spoke lightweight forged wheels boast a gloss black diamond finish with Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres and black brake calipers with carbon ceramic brakes.

Inside, the luxuriously-appointed interior of the McLaren 570GT comprises jet black leather with carbon black alcantara accents on the centre tunnel, lower instrument panel, headliner, steering wheel and speaker surrounds.

Under the bonnet is a 3.8-litre V8 engine, producing 562bhp for a 204mph top speed and 3.4-second 0-62mph sprint.

In short, it’d be the perfect courtesy car for Batman if the Batmobile was ever out of action.

Rob Melville, design director at McLaren Automotive, commented: “Black is a colour associated with elegance, power and authority whilst also surrounded by a certain air of mystery.

“The end result remains true to the luxurious nature of the 570GT but we managed to further amplify its sleek, sporty character with a wealth of new MSO Defined options.”

Stephen Hasley, brand manager at Petrol News, comments: “Supercars are often notable for their vibrant colours but there is none more black than this special edition 570GT.”
