McLaren 570S Sounds Even Better With MSO’s Titanium SuperSports Exhaust

It’s hard to make a turbocharged engine sound as good as a naturally aspirated one. But McLaren, by all accounts, has done a pretty good job of it lately. If your Sports Series model doesn’t sound raucous enough for you, though, MSO can help.

McLaren Special Operations now offers a titanium exhaust system. It forms part of the MSO Defined range for the Sports Series. And as you can see (and hear) from this video, it sounds… well, like a supercar should.

The Sports Series, for those unacquainted, represents the entry point into McLaren Automotive’s lineup. (As if that term could ever been more relative.) It includes the 570S coupe, 570S Spider, 570GT coupe, and (in certain markets) the more accessible 540C coupe as well.

Breath Easier, Sound Better

Each packs Woking’s 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 in its carbon fiber chassis. The engine kicks out 562 horsepower (570 ps/419 kW) and 443 lb-ft (601 Nm) of torque in 570 spec, or 533 hp (540 ps/397 kW) and 398 lb-ft (540 Nm) of torque in the 540C. The new titanium exhaust system can ostensibly be fitted to any of them. And it helps the engine breath easier while emitting an augmented symphony.

That’s something McLaren found it had to work on after releasing the original MP4-12C, from which reviewers deducted marks for its lackluster exhaust note. Clearly the engineers at McLaren have taken note, in turn, and invested a lot more time and energy into making the company’s supercars sound better in the years since. And glad we all are that they have.
