McLaren Sports Series enters production, the first 570S Coupe ready for delivery

McLaren Automotive has started production of its new Sports Series family of luxury high-performance sports cars at the state-of-the-art McLaren Production Centre (MPC) in Woking, England.

The first car to be launched in the Sports Series family is the 570S Coupé, and this will be followed by the 540C Coupé and another bodystyle in 2016. The first McLaren 570S Coupé to roll off the production line has been delivered to a retailer in the UK and, even before the first customer handover takes place, the global retailer network is holding over 1,000 orders for this superb new addition to the McLaren range.

The 570S Coupe uses the evolution of the 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 engine, producing 562bhp and 443 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels through the familiar seven-speed SSG.

0-62mph comes in 3.2 seconds, 0-124mph in 9.5 seconds and the top speed is 204mph.

The start of production of the new Sports Series heralds a new chapter in the short history of McLaren Automotive, as well as completing its three tier product strategy of Ultimate Series, Super Series and Sports Series. When the full Sports Series family is complete by 2018, it is forecast to more than double the annual volume of McLaren Automotive to more than 4,000 cars per year. The Sports Series is priced from £126,000 for the 540C Coupé rising to £143,250 for the 570S Coupé.
