McLaren Automotive has released details of the new McLaren 570GT by MSO Concept ahead of its debut on the famed 18th fairway of Pebble Beach golf course at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, the world’s highest-profile competitive display of collector’s cars. The McLaren 570GT by MSO Concept will be displayed on the concept lawn where previously McLaren has displayed many of its concept and future models.
The 570GT is fitted with the McLaren-developed 3.8-liter twin turbo V8 M838TE engine. Power and torque output is 570PS (562bhp) and 600 Nm (443lb ft) respectively and power is delivered to the rear wheels via a seven-speed seamless-shift transmission with adjustment through Normal, Sport and Track settings to produce one of the most rewarding and engaging driving experiences in the sports car class.
This delivers breathtaking performance more commonly seen in the supercar segment: 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 3.4 seconds, 0-200 km/h (0-124 mph) in 9.8 seconds, with a top speed of 328 km/h (204 mph). Despite supercar performance figures, there have been no sacrifices to the everyday drivability and practicality of the 570GT which returns 26.6 mpg (10.7 l/100 km).
McLaren Automotive has shown the most luxurious and refined model to-date at the 2016 Beijing International Automobile Exhibition with the Asian premiere of the 570GT. The latest model was unveiled by McLaren Automotive Chief Executive Officer Mike Flewitt, alongside a specially commissioned example of the Sports Series with a 570S Coupe by McLaren Special Operations (MSO), while the Super Series was represented by a 650S Spider as McLaren made its second appearance at the event.
The 570GT is the second of three bodystyles which will eventually complete the Sports Series, introducing race-derived technologies and supercar performance to the sports car market in a package which is very much a pure McLaren. The 570GT is fitted with the McLaren-developed 3.8-litre twin turbo V8 M838TE engine which debuted in the 570S Coupé. Power and torque remain at 570PS (562bhp) and 600 Nm (443lb ft) and power is delivered to the rear wheels via a seven-speed seamless-shift transmission with adjustment through Normal, Sport and Track settings to produce one of the most rewarding and engaging driving experiences in the sports car class.
