McLaren has unveiled the first model in its Sports Series, the 570S Coupé.
The new Sports Series joins the Super Series and Ultimate Series to complete the three tier McLaren range being shown together for the first time at this week’s New York Auto Show.
The new entry-level McLaren 570S Coupe follows the already proven P1 inspired design, using the evolution of the 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 engine, which in the new model is using 30% new components, while the output is 562bhp and torque stands at 443 lb-ft. Power is sent to the rear wheels through the same seven-speed SSG.
0-62mph comes in 3.2 seconds, 0-124mph in 9.5 seconds and the top speed is 204mph.
The unique carbon fibre MonoCell II chassis has been newly designed with more of a focus on day-to-day usability, offering improved ingress and egress from the cabin. It weighs less than 80kg, and together with the use of aluminium body panels, contributes to a total dry weight of just 1,313kg.
Average fuel economy is 25.5mpg on the EU combined cycle, and CO” emissions are 258g/km.
McLaren calls it the most usable McLaren to date, with a clear focus on engagement, visibility, functionality and day-to-day usability and space.
The front trunk has 150 litres of storage and the cabin is very nicely equipped for a car weighing just 1,313kg. There is a full infotainment system including an all new TFT digital instrument cluster that changes configuration according to driving mode, a seven-inch IRIS touchscreen with integrated climate control functionality, Bluetooth connectivity and DAB digital / SIRIUS satellite radio, mounted on a ‘floating’ centre console.
