The very first spy shots of a prototype testing the second body style of the McLaren 570S have emerged online. As per rumours, the 570S variant in question is reportedly a more spacious and comfortable GT model with a similar seating layout to the Nissan GT-R and Porsche 911 range.
The most immediate point of difference between these so-called 570S ‘GT’ test mule and the standard model is the extensively redesigned roofline. It is slightly taller than the standard 570S and stretches back further to the rear decklid. It seems apparent that it has been designed to improve headroom and therefore being able to accommodate two rear-seat passengers.
McLaren has already confirmed that the latest 570S version will debut sometime next year, likely at one of 2016’s largest auto shows. Beneath the skin, it will inevitably be powered by the same twin-turbocharged 3.8-litre V8 engine as the standard 570S coupe and therefore be capable of reaching 100 km/h in the low-3 second range.
In 2017, a Spider version of the 570S will be released to complete the Sports Series range.
