The internal name for the new McLaren 570S Coupe was P13 and at a cursory look, one might think that it is a trimmed down version of the 650S. But McLaren has redesigned the new 570S to become more user-friendly in everyday life and also managed to trim away much weight about 80 kilograms(176 lbs). The car now weighs 1313 kg(2895 lbs). Mclaren says that 30 percent of the car components are new. The weight distribution of front and
the rear is 42:58.
The 3.8 liters V8 engine is derived from the «big brother» 650S but in this embodiment, the peak power is 570 hp at 7400 rpm, which is reflected in the model name. It delivers maximum torque of 600 Nm between 5000-6500 rpm. CO2 emissions are relatively reasonable at 258gm/km and consumption is 11.1 l/100 km(21.1 mpg). Power is transmitted through a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. Lower weight helps boost in performance figures and McLaren claims that new 570S accelerates 0-100 km/h(0-62 mph) in 3.2 seconds and 0-200 km/h(0-124 mph) in 9.5 seconds. Top speed is 328 km/h(203 mph).
The sight of Mclaren 570S coupe are clearly set on Porsche 911 Turbo S. It has similar performance and it is been built for daily use to enjoy all that performance. The 570S is more than a high-performance, mid-engined and rear-wheel drive sports car. The model best personify the high level of sports and practicality that can be used on a daily basis. The sports car generally has unusual visibility but according to Mclaren, 570S interior is designed for high clarity, functionality, and comfort. The boot space is also carved more for weekend travel and measures 150 liters, 35 liters more than Porsche 911.
The front is very aggressive. Sharp headlights with an encapsulated boomerang along-with splitter add a sporty appeal to the car. It is safely to assume that it will become one of the most desirable cars at the motor show as the design is inspired by unique Mclaren P1 with special details like scissor doors. The interior has 7 inch vertical display which is further complemented by Bowers & Wilkins 12-speaker system.
Mclaren 570S is first offering in sports series. Its official launch will take place this week at New York Motor Show. Some lucky folks have already had a chance to see this car in advance. Approximately, the price is going to be 1,70,000 euros which is similar to Porsche 911 Turbo S and newly unveiled Audi R8 V10.
