The ambitions of McLaren building supercars have always been at a high but with the world debut of the 570S at tomorrow's New York Auto Show might be its boldest unmentioned statement, yes it's the territory of German sports cars, i.e Porsche 911 and Mercedes-AMG GT. This latest car from McLaren is the new breed of the new series which the company calls it McLaren Sports Series, slotting beneath the Super Series comprising the Asia-only 625C, 650S and the hard-core 675 LT.
Let mention about it's appearance. The folks at Woking has been hard at work perfecting that snout and rear end of the car reflecting the symbol of the brand and we believe that they have done a great job developing this car.
Once you are greeted inside the cockpit of the 570S, the designers at Woking has thrown in lashes of luxury materials while at the same time, carrying over the best-in-the-business cabin airiness that was achieved the first time around with the 12C, McLaren's first 21st century road car.
Sitting behind your head is a familiar 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 engine found from various McLaren's line of cars. With 570 hp and 700 Nm of torque on tap, this car can rev up to 7,000 rpm while tipping at the scales of 1,313 kg dry weight. With this kind of power, 0-100 km/h can be achieved in 3.2 seconds and put your foot down, it can do up to 328 km/h. The British company intends to steal some of its market share of sports cars against the likes of the Audi R8, Porsche 911, Jaguar F-Type and Mercedes-AMG GT with occupying the same rough overall size on the road being no coincidence.
