Mclaren unveiled their newest offering in the market called the 570S at the2015, New York Auto Show recently. This also happens to be their cheapest offering and is meant to take on the Porsche’s 911 Turbo. The 570S is the first car from Mclaren’s Sports Series which will later be joined by atleast 4 to 5 other models; the Sports series joins the Super Series and the Ultimate Series from the same auto manufacturer which also consists of some other interesting cars as well. The specialty of the Sports Series is that it introduces Mclaren’s new race-derived technologies and design elements to the new breed of customer.

The 570S joins the mid-engined rear wheel drive coupe league of cars and it too is actually built around the carbon fibre structure which means the 570S Coupe is extremely lightweight and which helps it in class leading power to weight ratio of 434 Ps per tonne. Talking about power let me inform you that this mid engine Coupe is extremely powerful and uses a M838TE twin turbo V8 engine which produces an impressive amount of power and torque, the performance figures are equally interesting though. The 570S Coupe is able to sprint from 0-100 km/h mark in just 3.2 seconds while it also the ability to touch a top speeds of 324 Km/h mark which is simply amazing.

Although this Coupe is cheaper than the other Mclaren road legal cars but it shares its DNA with the 650S and the mighty P1 and just because this car is cheap that actually does not mean it will also leave the fun part behind it. The initial figures and information available with us surely makes this car equally interesting like the other Cars available from the British auto manufacturer who has been in this business scene for 52 years now.

According to Mclaren's own term the ‘shrinkwrapped’ aerodynamically optimized form was implemented on this new coupe

The 570S Coupe is the first car from the Mcalren’s Sports Series lineup and it brings with it Mclarens new design philosophy in the Coupe. According to Mclaren’s own term the ‘shrinkwrapped’ aerodynamically optimized form was implemented on this new coupe. The images prove that there is no doubt that the people at Mclaren was able to curve out a beautiful shape from the carbon fibre and metals.

The front fascia of the Coupe is highlighted by those typical Mclaren logo shaped headlamps and the aero blades just below the nose of the car which helps channel air through the air blades and below the front bumper while also channeling air to the lower bodywork of the car. The sculpted bonnet also helps in channeling air over those beautifully sculpted front wheel arches. Mclaren’s signature dihedral doors comes with three dimensional forms which hides also has this door button, these doors helps channel air to the side air inatakes and also to the flying buttresses underneath. While the flying buttresses at the rear of the teardrop-shaped glasshouse over the shoulder line helps in heat evacuation. While the rear aluminium fenders passes clean air to the fixed rear spoiler towards the rear.

Towards the rear one can also notice the LED which is actually built around the body panel looks really beautiful. While the rear portion also has an aluminium mesh just above the engine bay area which also helps in heat evacuation and also gives you a peek of what is lying inside. While the aggressive twin rear diffuser and twin exhausts completes the overall look of the rear of the car.

Mclaren wanted the interior to be more spacious and practical and we loved the fact that it comes with minimal buttons for controls

Mclaren wanted the interior to be more spacious and practical and we loved the fact that it comes with minimal buttons for controls which also helps save tonnes of space and keep the dashboard and central console clean. Those who love colors will love the new digital interface which consists of the TFT infotainment cluster which actually changes configuration with different driving modes. While a separate seven-inch IRIS touchscreen has been fitted at the floating dashboard area which comes with integrated climate control function, Bluetooth connectivity and DAB digital / SIRIUS satellite radio (depending on the market) thus eliminating the need of all those extra buttons and switches.

For the entertainment of the passenger inside the 570S also comes with an inbuilt 4 speaker audio system which is also built with lightweight materials and helps saving weight. The Sports Series also comes with integrated leather covered sports seats. as standard and because of this practical cabin and intelligent ergonomically designed interior Mclaren was able to create 150 Litres of free space under the front luggage bay.

Mclaren is also offering the 570S customers with plenty of interior customization options which include various choices of leather, and carbon fibre options. You also get to choose from bespoke interior specifications which are also available with the 675 LT. One can even upgrade the audio system inside by adding more speakers.

McLaren has completed its three tier model strategy with the global reveal of the first in its Sports Series family: the McLaren 570S Coupé. This pure sports car, with driver optimised layout and electrifying performance, shares its DNA with the McLaren Super Series and Ultimate Series that sit above it in the range hierarchy. The Sports Series introduces McLaren race-derived technologies and design values to a new segment and audience.

Like every McLaren, the performance of the 570S Coupé is breathtaking. It combines, as its names suggests, a power output of 570PS (562bhp) with light weight construction to give a class leading power-to-weight ratio of 434PS per tonne. The 570S accelerates from 0 to 100km/h (62 mph) in 3.2 seconds, while 200 km/h (124 mph) is reached in just 9.5 seconds with the pace not letting up till the car reaches a top speed of 328 km/h (204mph).

The Coupé is the first bodystyle to be shown in the Sports Series, highlighting the latest evolution of the McLaren design philosophy. The ‘shrinkwrapped’, aerodynamically-optimised form will be seen in public for the first time at the 115th New York International Auto Show. The McLaren design team has created a shape of beauty highlighted by details such as the rear flying buttresses that increase downforce as well as adding grace, and complex door tendons that direct additional air to cool the mid-mounted V8 engine.

The Sports Series features an evolution of the 3.8-litre V8 twin turbo engine, named M838TE, with 30 percent of components bespoke to the new model. Engineered by McLaren, it produces 570PS (562 bhp) at 7,400 rpm, and 600Nm (443 lb ft) of torque at 5,000-6,500 rpm. Power is delivered through a seven-speed SSG transmission, and transferred to the road through the rear wheels. This power is brought under control with standard-fit carbon ceramic brakes, fitted behind a newly designed range of forged alloy wheel options with P Zero™ Corsa tyres as standard from McLaren technical partner, Pirelli – 225/35/R19 on the front and 285/35/R20 on the rear.

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 is incredibly strong and stiff yet weighs less than 80kg, offering optimum levels of protection. This lightweight structure, and the use of aluminium body panels, contributes to a dry weight of as low as 1,313kg (2,895lbs), almost 150kg lighter than its closest competitor.

Minimised weight and a turbocharged engine doesn’t just bring great performance. The 570S also delivers excellent fuel efficiency and emissions for car that is also a member of the 200mph club, with fuel economy of 25.5mpg on the EU combined cycle, and emissions of 258g/km. For the US market, this means exemption from gas guzzler tax.

A PURE McLAREN BOTH ON ROAD AND TRACK

The 570S shows an evolution in the design direction for McLaren, with the McLaren ‘face’ seen on models in the Super Series and Ultimate Series sharpened further. This unique and striking appearance has been designed by air, with a bespoke aerodynamic package including aero blades below the front bumper giving a purposeful stance while channelling clean, cold air through the lower leading edge of the bodywork. Large ultra bright LED headlamps, fitted as standard to all Sports Series models, flank a sculpted bonnet which channels airflow over the front wheelarches. The intricately designed dihedral doors, a McLaren design signature since the iconic F1, possess a three dimensional form including a ‘floating’ door tendon which houses a discreet door button. This unique feature divides the airflow, channelling it into the side intakes and underneath the flying buttresses. This architectural structure ensures drag is minimised along the profile of the 570S, while also optimising levels of cooling and downforce.

Flying buttresses at the rear of the teardrop-shaped glasshouse form part of the aero package, directing air over the shoulderline of the 570S and across the rear deck aiding heat evacuation from the exposed engine bay and increasing downforce. Super-formed aluminium rear fenders ensure clean air is delivered to the fixed rear spoiler, again maximising downforce. The rear of the car is clean and uncluttered, with LED light blade rear lamps which follow the form of the sculpted panels. The rear of the vehicle features an aluminium mesh allowing effective heat evacuation as well as a view into the engine bay. This sits below a concave rear window, another signature Sports Series Coupé design cue. The twin exhausts exit below the rear bumper, either side of a newly designed and highly intricate rear diffuser.

The Sports Series has its own newly-developed suspension system ensuring enhanced levels of driver engagement and refinement on both road and track. It uses independent adaptive dampers with front and rear anti-rollbars – distinct from the Super Series – and dual wishbones, with the set up controlled by the familiar ‘Normal’, ‘Sport’ and ‘Track’ handling settings. In ‘Normal’ mode, the system provides a refined yet engaging ride, while the ‘Sport’ and ‘Track’ settings allow the 570S to become more track-focused when required.

THE MOST USABLE McLAREN TO DATE

Like every McLaren the cabin of the 570S has been designed around the driver, with a clear focus on engagement, visibility, functionality and more than any McLaren before it, day-to-day usability and space. As standard, the sports seats are leather upholstered – racing seats are optional – offering a high level of long distance comfort and support. The dashboard and steering wheel are also all leather trimmed. Intelligent and ergonomic design within the cabin provides extended stowage space, with the most usable space of any McLaren model to date. This adds to the 150 litres of storage in the front luggage bay.

The 570S is comprehensively equipped with a full infotainment system including an all new TFT digital instrument cluster that changes configuration according to driving mode, a seven-inch IRIS touchscreen, now with integrated climate control functionality, Bluetooth connectivity and DAB digital / SIRIUS satellite radio (depending on market), mounted on a ‘floating’ centre console. Despite the extensive specification list, weight-saving is still a key focus on the interior and the McLaren Audio four-speaker system ensures the optimal sound quality at the lowest possible weight.

With the Sports Series, an even greater variety of interior customisation is available with a variety of factory available Alcantara®, nappa leather and carbon fibre options. In addition, McLaren designers have created a range of ‘By McLaren’ bespoke interior specifications, similar to those also available on the 675LT, teaming carefully selected colours and materials designed to best showcase the stylish cabin space and co-ordinate with each exterior paint colour. In addition to this, a McLaren Audio Plus 8-Speaker Upgrade System and bespoke Bowers & Wilkins 12-Speaker Premium Audio System with 1280W surround sound upgrade is also available for the ultimate audio experience.

Further details of the McLaren 570S will be confirmed following the global reveal, which will take place on Wednesday 1 April, 2015 at the New York International Auto Show. The McLaren Automotive press conference will start at 14.55 EST (19.55 GMT) on Stand 704, Level 3.
