McLaren has revealed the first model in its Sports Series, the new 570S Coupé.

A pure McLaren, featuring 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.

Price tag: unknown

The new Sports Series shares its DNA with the Super Series and Ultimate Series, and the three-tier McLaren range will be shown together for the first time at the 115th New York International Auto Show on 1st April 2015.

The new 570S Coupé is a classic sports car with a mid-mounted engine, rear-wheel drive layout and a carbon fibre chassis.

The M838TE twin-turbo V8 engine produces 570PS (562bhp) and 600Nm (442lb ft), with 30 percent of components bespoke to the Sports Series.

Power is delivered through a seven-speed SSG transmission and transmitted to the road via Pirelli P-Zero™ Corsa tyres, and this power is brought under control with standard-fit carbon ceramic brakes.

The Sports Series has its own newly developed suspension system along with ‘Normal’, ‘Sport’ and ‘Track’ handling settings.

The unique carbon fibre MonoCell II chassis at the heart of the 570S Coupé is incredibly strong and stiff yet weighs less than 80kg, and has been designed to offer optimum levels of protection without inhibiting ingress and egress from the cabin.

This lightweight structure, and the use of aluminium body panels, contributes to a dry weight as low as 1313kg (2895lbs), almost 150kg lighter than its closest competitor.

The high power output, combined with the lightweight carbon fibre structure, means the 570S Coupé delivers a class leading power-to-weight ratio of 434PS (428bhp) per tonne.

Performance is breathtaking: the 570S Coupé will accelerate from zero to 100km/h (0-62 mph) in 3.2 seconds, while 200 km/h (0-124 mph) is reached in just 9.5 seconds, and the top speed is 328 km/h (204mph).

Minimised weight and a turbocharged engine doesn’t just bring great performance.

The 570S Coupé also delivers excellent fuel efficiency and emissions for a car that is a member of the 200mph club, with fuel economy of 25.5mpg on the EU combined cycle.

For the US market, this means exemption from gas guzzler tax.

The Coupé is the first bodystyle to be shown in the Sports Series, highlighting the latest evolution of the McLaren ‘form follows function’ design philosophy.

The ‘shrinkwrapped’, aerodynamically-optimised form has been sculpted by the air, with a bespoke aerodynamic package including intricately-designed dihedral doors.

A McLaren design signature since the iconic F1 supercar of the 1990s, on the 570S Coupé these possess a three-dimensional form including a ‘floating’ door tendon.

This unique feature divides the airflow, channelling additional air to cool the mid-mounted V8 engine, and underneath the flying buttresses to increase downforce.
