McLAREN SPORTS SERIES In Malaysia Now
Breathtaking performance, carbon fibre construction, twin-turbocharged V8, hand-crafted luxury. Its dramatic, futuristic design is as eye-catching as it is functional. The distinctive nose of the Sports Series is inspired by McLaren Formula 1™ race cars, shrink-wrapped dihedral doors are intricately contoured to channel cool air to the engine bay, and ‘flying buttress’ rear pillars create an athletic silhouette while increasing downforce for reassuring handling.
Inside, the luxurious cabin features hand-crafted leather, a Bowers & Wilkins Audio System, excellent visibility and exceptionally comfortable adjustable sports seats. An intuitive seven-inch central touchscreen infotainment system includes satellite navigation, Bluetooth audio streaming, WiFi tethering and voice activation as standard specification.
The McLaren designed 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine with amazing performance, incredible response and outstanding refinement is the beating heart of the Sports Series. Positioned behind the driver and sending power to the rear wheels alone to offer the same impeccable agility as our racing cars, this powerful engine is complemented by a state-of-the-art seamless-shift gearbox for ultra-fast, ultra-smooth gearshifts.
Two Sports Series derivatives are available. The 540C produces a potent 540PS (533bhp) and 540Nm (398lb ft) and is the most attainable and useable McLaren ever produced. At the top of the range, the 570S boosts performance to an incredible 570PS (562bhp) and 600Nm (443lb ft) for the ultimate sports car experience. Unique body styling, including the Sport Aero Pack with new rear diffuser, front splitter and side skirts, and an even more driver-focused chassis further increase the appeal of the 570S, while maintaining the day-to-day usability central to Sports Series DNA.
Assembled at the McLaren Production Centre next door to the Formula 1™ racing team, the Sports Series is hand-built to the same exacting standards as the McLaren Super Series and the McLaren Ultimate Series. No other sports car boasts a production process with such painstaking attention to detail.
The McLaren Sports Series is available to order now. The world has never seen anything like it.
