With one week to go before its 2015 New York Auto Show debut, McLaren is releasing the first details on its “entry level” Sports Series.
While it will eventually grow into a family of models like the existing Super Series, the Sports Series will launch with just one – the 570S Coupe.
The name signifies the power output of the 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8 in PS, meaning 562 hp on the U.S. measurement system.
Just as its name echoes the current 650S, the 570S is expected to be something like a downsized version of that car, with a version of the larger car’s carbon-fiber chassis, and similar P1-derived styling.
The Sports Series will be cheaper though, possibly starting at around $150,000, compared to the roughly $205,000 starting price of a 650S.
Expect a convertible version sometime after the coupe’s launch. A less-powerful “C” version may also be developed for Asia as a companion to the 625C that’s currently sold there.
Other variants are also possible further down the road. It would be great to see McLaren create a hotter version of the 570S to match the recently-unveiled 675LT Super Seres model.
The McLaren 570S Coupe will be unveiled at the 2015 New York Auto Show April 1, one week from today.
We’ll have all of the details live from the show floor.
