We knew it wouldn’t be long before an MSO (McLaren Special Operations) fettled McLaren 570S arrived. The new British entry-level supercar hasn’t yet been driven by the world’s media following its release at the New York Motor Show 2015. Production is also yet to begin, however, that hasn’t stopped McLaren’s “skunkworks” division from getting its hands on an early pre-production version.
In true MSO fashion, the McLaren 570S gets a new Mauvine Blue paint scheme. The purple colour looks to have drawn its influence form the first synthetic organic chemical dye known as Mauveine. Mauveine being one of the first chemical dye’s, its use on the first MSO McLaren 570S seems perfect.
Alongside the unique paintwork, MSO have added some colour to the interior. The bespoke interior comes finished in Carbon Black leather with co-ordinating detailing. The seats feature a colourful line running down the centre with contrasting purple stitching and purple colouring under the steering wheel.
The car has been on display over the past few days in Monterey, California, for the ongoing Monterey Car Week event. Its on display alongside a 1996 McLaren F1 GTR owned by BMW North America. Both McLaren 675LT and McLaren 650S Le Mans Edition are also on display.
The McLaren 570S was unveiled at the New York Motor Show 2015 with a cheaper version, the McLaren 540S, unveiled at the Shanghai Auto Show 2015 soon after. The 570S is predicted to triple the company’s sales volume by 2020. It features a 3.8 litre twin turbo V8 engine with 30 percent new parts. It produces 562 bhp and a price of around $180,000. The MSO will likely see a lot of these pass through their workshop in years to come!
