LONDON: McLaren has announced that the first model to be launched in its Sports Series family will be called the 570S Coupé.
This V8 powered, carbon fibre structured two seater will show its beautiful yet aerodynamically optimised form for the first time in less than a week when it debuts at the 115th New York International Auto Show.
With the launch of the first Sports Series derivative, the 570S Coupe, McLaren will be displaying its three tier model strategy together in New York for the first time globally.
Every Sports Series model will share characteristics with the Super Series and Ultimate Series that sit above it in the McLaren hierarchy.
A pure McLaren, offering class-leading levels of performance, coupled with optimised handling characteristics and driving dynamics, the 570S Coupé marks the first time McLaren has offered its pioneering and race-derived technologies in the sports car segment.
In line with the naming convention begun with the 650S, the number 570 gives away the power output of this first McLaren Sports Series model: 570PS, which equates to 562hp.
Further details and images of the McLaren 570S Coupé will be announced next week ahead of the global reveal in New York on April 1.
