THE MCLAREN 570GT SUPERCAR PAINTED IN CLASSIC XP GREEN!Date: 2017-09-20
Commissioned from McLaren special operations as an MSO collection, a limited number of 570GT supercars are finished in the British automaker's historic XP green exterior paint.
It is the same colour as the F1 XP GT longtail homologation model built in 1997. The saddle tan leather interior features green leather inserts in the seat and green contrast stitching, as well as a dedication plaque mounted on the centre tunnel beneath the infotainment screen identifying each car as one of six in the collection.
The exterior of McLaren special operations’ bespoke 570GT is adorned with saddle tan aero pin-striping edging the front aero blades, side skirts and rear diffuser, while each door carries a stripe of the same colour that runs rearwards from a subtle union jack emblem finished in silver-grey. MSO black exterior components replace the front splitter, door inserts, side air intakes, side skirts and rear bumper, diffuser and spoiler, all of which would usually be finished in dark palladium or body colour.
The inspiration for the MSO colour and trim enhancements on the 570GT is a combination of traditional British automotive hues and a special car from McLaren's own history – the F1 XP GT.
The 570GT remains a serious sports car, with its 3.8-litres, twin-turbocharged V8 engine producing the same 570 PS and 600 Nm at the coupé, with performance to match.
