McLaren 570GT Black Collection Meets 720S Velocity for Salon Prive Show

Owning luxury, high-performance sportscars and supercars is not a complete experience if one can’t have a say in the way the cars are made. This is why all such car builders provide unique personalization options for their buyers, via various specialized organizations.

For McLaren, the division in charge with catering to the customers’ needs is called McLaren Special Operations. Known as MSO in the industry, this division is perhaps one of the most famous of them all.

Aside from providing design assistance to McLaren’s customers, MSO is also in charge with creating limited edition versions of the cars the company sells.

The latest such builds will be making their public debut in tandem at the Blenheim Palace Classic & Supercar Salon Prive event, taking place between August 30 and September 2 in Oxfordshire, England. The two are versions of the McLaren 570GT and the McLaren 720S.

The 570GT tweaked by MSO specifically for the event is called Black Collection, and it will make it into production in a limited run of 100 units worldwide. As its name says, it comes in an all-black design with Carbon Black exterior paint. At the interior, Jet Black Leather and Carbon Black Alcantara round up the menacing look of the car.

The 720S will be called Velocity and complements the darkness of its sibling with Nerello Red on the front and upper body panels and Volcano Red on the sides and rear of the car. McLaren did not say if or how many of this version will be made.

Building on the success of the otherwise limited number of models it has on sale now, McLaren announced during the Goodwood Festival of Speed it will greatly expand its product portfolio in the coming years.

No less than 18 new models and derivatives will be launched by 2025, including a new Ultimate Series successor of the P1. The entire new range of new sportscars and supercars will be hybrids.
