This week at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, McLaren will unveil the 570 by MSO Concept, offering a preview some of the personalization options that buyers can expect. The car is clad in a striking Pearl White paint job, with glossy Piano Black on the side scoops, front and rear lower fascias and wheels. In the back, there's a titanium exhaust system -- said to be 30 percent lighter than the standard steel unit -- and a heat shield finished in a golden titanium nitride tint, though the color apparently changes to a blue and purple mix as the system heats and cools through its cycle.
An additional interesting feature is the electro-chromic interlayer on the glass roof. Using a touch-sensitive headlining, the roof can be adjusted through five defined points from almost clear to a rich, dark tint, providing privacy as well as protection from the sun.
Customers can also expect premium leather trim and a 12-speaker Bowers and Wilkins audio system. What hasn't changed is the power supply, featuring McLaren's familiar twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V-8, mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission that drives the rear wheels only.
