The McLaren 570S is a sports car designed and manufactured by McLaren Automotive. It was unveiled at the New York International Auto Show in 2015. McLaren predict the model will help triple the company's sales volume by 2020, with UK pricing scheduled at £143,250 GBP, whilst North American pricing is estimated at $180,000 USD.
It goes up against the brutish Mercedes AMG GT, Porsche 911 Turbo S, the Lamborghini Huracan and the new Audi R8.
The car is to be powered by a new iteration of the 3.8 litre twin turbo V8 engine already used in the McLaren 650S and P1, designated M838T E with thirty percent of the parts redesigned. Arranged in the car as a rear-mid engine configuration, it will deliver 562 brake horsepower (419 kW) through a 7 speed dual clutch gearbox. A total weight of 1,313 kilograms (2,895 lb) give the 570S a power to weight ratio of 428 brake horsepower (319 kW) per tonne, deliver fuel economy of 25.5 miles per imperial gallon (11.1 L/100 km; 21.2 mpg-US) and CO2 emissions of 258g/km.
McLaren focused on delivering "day-to-day usability and driveability" against the most sporting model options in its range with increased luggage space, greater interior storage and leather upholstery options.
At the 2015 Shanghai Motor Show the entry level McLaren Sports Series car the McLaren 540C was unveiled with 533 bhp (540PS). This new entry level model focuses on “day-to-day usability and driveability” even more than that of the 570S with improved city driving and improved ride quality. The 540C will be even cheaper than the 570S at only £126,000 and will go on sale shortly after its Shanghai debut. The 540C will not be for sale in the US due to McLaren wanting to focus on the more powerful 570S model for the US market.
