THE NEW McLAREN 570S WITH 'TRACK PACK' – INSPIRED BY RACING SUCCESS
◾The ultimate McLaren 570S – for both road and track
◾Adds Alcantara® upholstered interior, carbon-fibre racing seats, track telemetry app, super-light alloy wheels and a new extended rear wing
◾Available to order now
McLaren Automotive has announced the first details of its new Track Pack which will be offered as an option exclusively for the multi-award-winning McLaren 570S. The Track Pack, available to order immediately, is designed to deliver enhanced levels of driver engagement for owners who enjoy occasional track day activity without compromising the car's all-round usability and includes a discretely extended rear wing to generate additional downforce.
The Track Pack is inspired by McLaren's long and illustrious racing history, including recent success in GT3 and GT4 categories. And like the road-going, and sold out, iconic McLaren 675LT, the Track Pack for the McLaren 570S exploits all the benefits of light weight and aerodynamic downforce to deliver the most gifted on-track ability of any member of the Sports Series family.
Visually, the aerodynamics of the Track Pack are enhanced for circuit performance wîth the inclusion of a 12mm higher rear wing that boosts the already high cornering downforce by an additional 29kg at 150mph, enhancing stability in the fastest of corners. This is not available on any other McLaren Sports Series derivative. Other Track Pack visual clues include a McLaren Special Operations roof finish in Dark Palladium, and §téälth-finish Sports exhaust.
Already the most powerful and lightest car in its class, the McLaren 570S wîth Track Pack tips the scales at 25kg less than the coupé in standard form. This weight reduction is made possible by a lightweight interior package wîth Alcantara® replacing leather for the seats, dashboard and §teering wheel covering, plus the introduction of carbon-fibre racing seats wîth circuit-proven lateral location. This delivers the most rewarding cabin environment for the driver to exploit the car's capabilities to the full – including its acceleration from 0-124mph in 9.4 seconds and 204mph top speed. Further weight reductions include the Stealth-finish super-lightweight alloy wheels.
| ||Vital Stats|
In recognition of the increased time the McLaren 570S wîth Track Pack is likely to spend on circuits, the package includes the ultimate must-have of McLaren's Track Telemetry system, as also used on the McLaren 675LT and McLaren P1TM. The system provides real-time information, such as lap times, sector splits and comparisons between drivers, as well as post-drive analysis and data-logging wîth graphical plots of vehicle speed and lap-time deltas. Naturally the Track Pack also retains the existing car's standard carbon-ceramic discs.
Track Pack is available to order now wîth deliveries beginning in early 2017. The option is priced at £16,500.Source - McLaren
