McLaren 570S Targets 911 Turbo and R8

Introducing the new McLaren 570S, a new member of the Woking automaker’s growing stable of thoroughbreds. It follows the same formula the MP4, the 650S, 675LT, and P1 have followed before it — be lean and be fast. Unlike its brethren though, the 570S is positioned to compete with some of the best “sports cars” on the market instead of McLaren’s normal competition which hovers in the supercar or hypercar arenas. It’ll feature a ton of McLaren goodness we’ve seen before like a 180-pound carbon fiber MonoCell II chassis and 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that’s mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The first car in McLaren’s Sports Series delivers some pretty impressive results as it brings along 562 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque. This will help take the 570S from 0-62 MPH in 3.2 seconds and hit 124 MPH in just 9.5 seconds as it flies to a 204 MPH top speed. The new 570S weighs just 2,895, giving it a power-to-weight ratio of 434 metric horsepower per ton. The McLaren 570S is about the same as a 911 Turbo or R8 in size and is fitted with 19-inch alloys up front and 20-inch wheels in the rear, all wrapped in Pirelli PZero Corsas. Oh, and carbon-ceramic brakes are standard. It also features fixed anti-roll bars front and rear and adaptive dampers. Step inside and you’ll see two-seater has a digital instrument cluster, seven-inch touchscreen display, audio systems with four, eight or twelve speakers and a lot more you can customize ’til your heart’s content.

The McLaren 570S will be on display at this week’s NYIAS and though pricing hasn’t been announced yet, rumors put it in the $180K range, competing with a top-tier 911 Turbo.
