2016 McLaren 570S Coupe Mauvine Blue By MSO

Not surprisingly, at least when compared to other recent McLarens tweaked by MSO, the exterior paint is the only feature that sets this 570S Coupe apart from the standard model. But what a color it is! McLaren calls it Mauvine Blue and says its uniquely formulated, meaning it was crafted in MSO’s very own color lab. The hue is downright amazing to look at, as it can change color depending on lighting conditions. It reminds me of Dodge’s iconic Plum Crazy, most recently used on the 2016 Dodge Challenger 392 Hemi Scat Pack Shaker, though Mopar’s shade is less chameleonic. As it turns out, sports cars can be eye-catching in mauve, too. Everything else outside is standard 570S business on this model, but it seems the owner went with the optional silver wheels and silver brake calipers.

Interior

The interior has been customized too, now featuring Carbon Black leather and Mauvine Blue accents on the flat, lower section of the steering wheel and on the seats, as well as matching stitching on the dashboard. Though Carbon Black leather is available from the factory, it can only be combined with Stone Grey, McLaren Orange, and Jet Black exterior colors. To get the Mauvine Blue stripes on the seats and the steering wheel, you’re going to have to take it to McLaren Special Operations and prepare of an extra fee.

Everything else in here is standard, meaning this coupe has a leather-trimmed dashboard, a new instrument cluster, and a 7-inch touchscreen with integrated climate controls, Bluetooth connectivity and either DAB digital or Sirius satellite radio.

Drivetrain

As is the case with all limited-edition or one-off models created by MSO, this 570S Coupe is powered by the same engine as the standard model. Under the hood lurks McLaren’s award-winning, twin-turbo, 3.8-liter V-8. The mill is shared (in different stages of tune) with both the 650S and 2016 McLaren P1 GTR, but in the 570S generates 562 horsepower at 7,400 rpm and 443 pound-feet of torque from 5,000 rpm. All that oomph is routed to the rear wheels through a seven-speed, dual-clutch transmission and enables the sports car to hit 62 mph in 3.2 seconds and 124 mph in 9.5 seconds, only 0.2 and 1.1 seconds slower than the more powerful 650S, respectively. Top speed sits at 204 mph, an impressive figure for this segment.

What makes the 570S truly special compared to its rivals is that it’s the lightest vehicle in its class, at 2,895 pounds. This makes it no fewer than 642 pounds lighter than the 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo S and 255 pounds lighter than the track-focused 2016 911 GT3 RS. Moreover, it delivers a class-leading power-to-weight ratio of 428 horsepower per tonne, compared to 911 Turbo S’ 349 horses per ton.

There’s no word as to how much the Mauvine Blue exterior color and matching interior bits added to the car’s original sticker, but it probably took the 570S Coupe into the $190,000 range, if not close to $200,000. The sports car retails from $184,900.

The Porsche 911 Turbo is the car to beat in this niche, and the reason McLaren created the 570S. The standard model features a 3.8-liter flat-six rated at 520 horsepower and 487 pound-feet of torque, while the Turbo S has 560 horses and 516 pound-feet on tap. Both are quicker than the 570S, needing 3.2 seconds (3.0 with Sport Chrono) and 2.9 seconds to hit 60 mph, respectively. Top speed, on the other hand, is slightly inferior at at 195 and 197 mph, respectively.

As far as customizing goes, the Porsche 911 Turbo can also be commission with bespoke parts via the brand’s Exclusive division. Options include special exterior paints and custom details inside and out. Recent examples include the 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo Lime Gold and the 911 Turbo S Exclusive GB Edition.
