McLaren release 10 GT4-inspired 570S with classic racing liveries
Designed to emulate both the F1 GTRs and its current GT4 car, McLaren has produced ten bespoke 570S
McLaren Special Operations has produced ten road-legal 570S heavily influenced by the GT4 race car, each finished with a livery inspired by famous McLaren endurance designs.
The MSO X – denoting the limited numbers – follows its racing counterpart with the addition of dive-plans at the front, a stripped-back interior and a rear wing which produces nearly 100kg of extra downforce. The MSO Xs also feature a functional roof snorkel to increase induction airflow, while also harking back to the F1 GTR Longtail.
On the inside, the carbon fibre Monocell 2 chassis is now more exposed, bucket seats have been fitted and there is space to store a race helmet.
Each of the ten cars will come in a unique colour design that is supposedly derived by the liveries run by F1 GTRs through the 1990s. Most notably, the 1995 Le Mans-winning GTR sponsored by Ueno Clinic has been mimicked.
All ten were ordered by McLaren’s largest retailer - Newport Beach - and have already been delivered to their new owners at a special event near Las Vegas.
Pietro Frigerio, McLaren Newport Beach dealer principal said: ‘The aim of this project was to have a serious track car that could still be driven on the road and this finished project screams ‘race car’ to the casual onlooker.
‘To have the MSO X project go from renderings at the Goodwood Festival of Speed last July to the ten magnificent supercars that we handed over to our excited clients today, is nothing short of amazing.’
It took only eight months for the project to progress from the initial discussions to customers taking delivery.
McLaren Automotive executive director, global sales and marketing Jolyon Nash said: ‘The MSO X collection is the perfect example of the rich vein of bespoke service offered by McLaren Special Operations. Customers come to us with their thoughts and ideas and MSO works with them to set boundaries within which they can then let their imaginations run wild.
‘What could be better than a McLaren buyer playing the role of ‘race engineer’ in briefing the MSO team and directing them to test and validate those ideas to create a race-bred road car such as this?’
