'McLaren Special Operations allows our customers to fully express themselves through their cars; and the new 570GT MSO Black Collection is no different, ' said Rob Melville, head of design at McLaren Automotive.

To amplify its darkness MSO has applied its Black Pack to the vehicle which replaces the Dark Palladium components and accessories. The cars all receive the Dynamic Sport Pack, which brings the sharper dynamics of McLaren's 570S Coupe to the 570GT.

McLaren's specialty MSO division is behind the new special edition, darkening the entire exterior of the supercar with a combination of unique Carbon Black paint and the MSO Black Pack that replaces gray accents on the front fascia and rear bumper, side skirts, and air intake.

The black theme also extends to the wheels, which are finished in Gloss Black Diamond and hide black-painted brake calipers.

It's not all about the exterior.

Prices for the 570GT MSO Black Collection start at £179,950 - £22,950 more than the standard vehicle. The 570GT MSO Black Collection also has heated memory sports seats with the McLaren Special Operations logo embroidered onto the headrests, in addition to the bespoke dedication plate located under the centre console.

In a wonderful display of attention to detail, even the car's key is painted in Carbon Black, and each auto gains a unique plate under the centre console marking it out as one of these special editions. "Black is a colour associated with elegance, power and authority whilst also surrounded by a certain air of mystery".

The company will limit production to just 100 units globally, with prices starting at £179,950 (~$250,000 USD) in the UK.

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. Deliveries are scheduled for mid-year.
