Mclaren Sports Series
Buy one and get a day at the track with expert driving instruction.
This is the car McLaren has been teasing.
It sounds mean in the teaser trailer.
But when you're spending this much already, how much does a few thousand bucks matter?
McLaren will be bringing a smattering of delectable supercars to Pebble Beach this month, highlighted by two examples of the 570S customized by the Special Operations division.
The convertible variant for Mclaren's Sport Series is coming in 2017. These models are getting another, more mysterious body style in 2016.
McLaren introduces the 540C coupe at the Shanghai Motor Show. Aimed at the Chinese market but apparently available worldwide by special order, it comes with 533 horsepower and a starting price of 126,000 pounds, which is a little less grunt and a 17,000-pound savings over the 570S.
Whether you've got the $190k to spare or just dreaming of what it would be like, McLaren has added the new 570S to its online configuration utility – packed with color choices and optional extras with which to play around.
McLaren's kicked off its Sports Series lineup at the New York Auto Show with the 570S, and now we know the price. At $184,900 - it's barely more than a Porsche 911 Turbo S. Next up is the more affordable 540C, set to debut at the Shanghai Motor Show later this month.
With three or more body styles and two or three engine specs, McLaren's upcoming new Sports Series promises to breed enough model variants to capture the attention of a Porsche 911 buyer.
Set to debut at the New York Auto Show, the upcoming McLaren Sports Series is captured playing in the snow in this latest teaser video, hot on the heels of the new 675LT and P1 GTR revealed in Geneva this week.
The latest word has it that McLaren's upcoming entry-level Sports Series will be just that: a series, with at least four versions to include a coupe, convertible, a touring version with an unusual trunk and a track-bound GTR version. McLaren Special Operations has also announced a special-edition 650S to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the F1 GTR's win at Le Mans.
Autocar reports that the coming McLaren Sports Series will cost 130,000 pounds in the UK and its 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 will be tuned to make "well over" 500 horsepower. Company CEO Mike Flewitt told the magazine, "Like our other models, this one will have a higher power-to-weight ratio and better performance figures than any rival."
