McLaren's bespoke Special Operations arm (MSO) has unveiled a new, limited-edition version of the British brand's 570GT supercar. Named the Black Collection, it's a fully blacked-out model with visual and mechanical improvements as standard.

The exterior gains Carbon Black paint, specially developed by MSO to be 'striking and extremely deep'. It's backed up with the MSO Defined Black Pack, which replaces the previous 'Dark Palladium' components on the front and rear splitters, side skirts and air intake.

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

Even the interior hasn't escaped, and the Black Collection 570GT features black leather and Alcantara seats, an Alcantara-clad centre tunnel, black headliner, steering wheel and speaker surrounds.

In a wonderful display of attention to detail, even the car's key is painted in Carbon Black, and each car gains a unique plate under the centre console marking it out as one of these special editions. Interior equipment is also generous, with a rear-view camera, power-adjustable steering column and Bowers & Wilkins audio system all included.

The changes aren't all visual, though. The cars all receive the Dynamic Sport Pack, which brings the sharper dynamics of McLaren's 570S Coupe to the 570GT. There's also a titanium SuperSports exhaust, which aids weight reduction (and makes a fantastic noise) and carbon-ceramic brakes come as standard.

The McLaren 570GT MSO Black Collection is limited to just 100 examples worldwide, priced at £179,950.
