A second teaser image of the upcoming McLaren Sports Series has been released with this particular teasing showing the butterfly door set to be featured on the British firm’s entry-level sports car.
The teaser shows that the doors operate in a very similar way to those from the range-topping McLaren P1 and are hinged at the bottom of the A-pillar. Compared to the P1’s doors however, those from the Sports Series appear to open more vertically and higher.
Details about the car remain scarce other than the fact that it will indeed sit below the McLaren 650S and according to previous reports, rival the likes of the Porsche 911 Turbo, Nissan GT-R and Mercedes-AMG GT. Additionally, the firm recently confirmed what we already knew; it will feature a carbon fibre monocoque as well as a mid-mounted V8 expected to be very similar to the 650S’ powertrain.
As a matter of fact, it will displace the same 3.8-litres and feature two turbochargers but be detuned to the 500 hp region. A few months ago, reports actually emerged suggesting it would be called the McLaren 500S as a result of this.
The McLaren Sports Series will be a range of vehicles and is expected to include a coupe, convertible and track-focused variant with each set to receive their own individualised names.
