The long awaited global reveal for the McLaren Sports Series was extremely well received this past week in New York City. The new entry level sports car brings McLaren race-derived technologies and supercar driving exhilaration to this segment market for the first time.
The McLaren Sports Series offers class-leading performance, lightweight construction including a carbon fibre chassis, instantly recognizable McLaren design language, and a comprehensive specification list. Pricing for the 570S, shown for the first time at the New York International Auto Show, will start at $184,900.
The 570S is powered by a 3.8-litre twin turbo V8, with 30 percent of components bespoke to the new model, and produces 570PS (562bhp) with 600Nm (443 lb ft). Affixed with a “stop-start” system, for the first time on a McLaren, the 570S offers greater efficiency during city driving, improving fuel consumption and CO2 output. Gear-changes take place through seven-speed seamless-shift gearbox (SSG) with ‘Cylinder Cut’ technology.
Global deliveries of the Sports Series will commence later this year.
