McLaren 570S Sprint revealed  23 | 06 | 2016

    McLAREN HAS REVEALED official images of its new 570S Sprint days before it makes its static and on-track debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend.

    The most track-focused car in the McLaren Sport Series line-up, the new model has received extensive chassis and aerodynamic modifications to cater for the high demands of circuit driving.

    In addition to centre-locking, lightweight cast magnesium wheels wrapped in Pirelli racing slicks, the 570S gets a more aggressive front splitter and floor assembly, plus enhanced cooling with the use of a GT3-inspired high-temperature radiator.

    And if you want to perform ‘pro-style’ wheel-changes, an optional air-jacking system is also available as an option.

    Inside the cockpit there’s a racing bucket seat with a six-point racing harness, surrounded by an FIA-approved roll-cage. There’s also a fire-extinguisher. A passenger seat is optional.

    The 570S Sprint was first announced earlier this year alongside the 570S GT4, which is currently being raced as a development car in the British GT4 Championship by Black Bull Ecurie Ecosse, in the hands of Forfar’s Sandy Mitchell and Johnstone’s Ciaran Haggerty.

    The Sprint shares some of its parts with the 570S GT4 racer, but it retains certain creature comforts to make it a more usable track car.

    Painted in McLaren Orange as standard, the 570S Sprint can also be specced with any colour from the regular 570S's colour list and finished with a choice of liveries designed by MSO Defined.

    First deliveries are expected early in 2017, with prices starting at £148,000.

    And if you want a more potent package, there’s the option to upgrade the car to GT4 spec with a GT4 compliance pack.
