McLaren 570GT Sport Pack and Other Options Announced

Postado Janeiro 13, 2018

All in all, the 570GT is an outrageous machine - the 3.8-liter biturbo V8 packs 562 horsepower (419 kilowatts) and 443 pound-feet (600 Newton-meters) of torque, with the updated machine kicking off at £157,000 in the United Kingdom.

McLaren say they expect some 60 per cent of 570GT buyers to opt for the new Handling Pack, and we'd expect the 20 per cent of buyers who now opt for the 570S to shrink to nearly nothing.

A new sport pack has been launched for the McLaren 570GT to further enhance one of the brand's most popular cars. The British carmaker has given the new variant stiffer springs, quicker steering, more stability control settings and new steering and damper software.

Jolyon Nash, McLaren Automotive executive director for global sales and marketing, said: "The changes for 2018 make every model in the range even more compelling; customers attracted by the McLaren blend of lightweight, carbon fibre construction and mid-mounted, twin-turbocharged V8 engine combining to deliver thrilling performance, can now choose from an even wider range of colours, materials and features".

McLaren Elevates the 570GT with Sport Pack and Design Editions

The 570GT sees the introduction of a variable tint electrochromic panoramic roof that allows owners to change the opacity of the glass roof through a range of UV-filtering tints.

The new 570GT Design Editions are: Silica White exterior with Saddle Tan and Carbon Black interior; Pacific Blue with Jet Black and Areia (cream); Blade Silver with Natural Tan and Carbon Black; Fire Black with Jet Black and Areia; and Storm Grey with Jet Black and Almond White.

There's also a set of Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres, and the 570 GT also gets ceramic brakes as standard whether you opt for the Handling Pack or not. On Thursday, McLaren introduced its solution: the 570GT Sport Pack. That package lets the 570GT get the same options as the 570S Coupe and Spider.
