MSO High Downforce Kit McLaren 570S news

When it comes to pace the McLaren 570S Coupe and Spider supercars are already plenty quick, but for those who need a little more of that magical downforce, McLaren Special Operations (MSO) has just the solution.

Designed by MSO, the “MSO Defined High Downforce Kit” is said to deliver an additional 75kg of downforce by means of a new carbon fibre rear wing and underfloor guide vanes that ensures “optimum aerodynamic balance is maintained”.

More than just being a functional bit of kit, McLaren says that the rear wing was also shaped to complement the flowing contours of the 570S’ rear bodywork, and also integrate a central high-mounted third brake light.

“We are constantly looking for opportunities to make the latest and very best designs and technologies available not only to new car buyers but also to customers who already own a McLaren,” says Carl Whipp, McLaren Automotive’s director for global aftersales. 

“The new MSO Defined High Downforce Kit is a perfect example of this ethos, offering both a transformative visual enhancement and dynamic benefits.”
