The recently revealed McLaren 570S Coupe has been officially priced in the United States with it to set customers back a minimum of $184,900. That means the 570S is $80,000 less than the McLaren 650S even though the 570S shares many of its mechanical components with the 650S.
For now, the base sticker price for the McLaren 570S is all that has been revealed meaning no pricing details for the inevitable array of optional extras has been released. Nevertheless, we do know that the 570S is just slightly more expensive than its direct rival, the Porsche 911 Turbo S, which starts at $182,700.
Beneath the skin, the McLaren 570S Coupe uses a 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V8 with 564 hp. As a result, the 570S Coupe can hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.2-seconds, while 200 km/h (124 mph) is reached in a very impressive 9.5-seconds with the pace not letting up till the car reaches a top speed of 328 km/h (204mph).
The engine has been branded the M838TE with E standing for Evolution as 30 per cent of the car’s engine is bespoke. Linked to the engine is a seven-speed SSG transmission that promises to be quick and smooth. Stopping power should be just as impressive courtesy of standard-fit carbon ceramic brakes, fitted behind a newly designed range of forged alloy wheel options shod, as standard, with Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres.
