McLaren MSO X, a race-inspired version of the already powered 570S has been unveiled by the Maserati Special Operations. Ten of these GT4-inspired cars were handed over to their owners at a special event outside Las Vegas. Just 10 examples of the special 570S will be built and they all have been sold out.

This road legal racecar gets a different rear wing that helps it create 100kg more downforce than the standard car. It also gets a roof scoop which helps more efficiently channel air into the car’s mid-mounted 3.8-litre V8. Inspired by the F1 GTR Longtail racer, McLaren says the scoop also creates a unique induction roar in the cabin, coupled with a titanium exhaust, it should make for a richer overall sound. Power though remains the same at 562bhp and 600Nm and it will barrel through the 100kmph barrier in 3.2 seconds. There are unique dive planes and a vented bumper up front, along with an easy-to-access tow strap that, presumably, owners will want to avoid using. The changes continue down back, where the rear wing sits above a reworked rear bumper.

Inside, MSO has pared back the standard Sport Series interior for the track. So you get carbon shell bucket seats, exposed carbon chassis elements, a carbon-fibre dashboard and special helmet storage on the bulkhead. Along with the regular three-point belts, there are proper six-point harnesses on board. Weight has been reduced but air-conditioning, height lift function and parking sensors have been retained since the car will be used on the roads as well.
