The new McLaren 570GT will make its UK debut at the London Motor Show, following the global reveal at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year. The newest model from the British supercar maker in the Sports Series will be joining the 650S Spider and the sold-out 675LT Spider at the Motor Show.
The 570GT will sit alongside the 570S Coupé and 540C Coupé as the third model in the recently announced Sports Series. The 570GT features a unique side-opening rear glass hatch offering additional storage on the leather-upholstered Touring Deck.
Under the hood, the 570GT features a McLaren-developed 3.8-litre twin turbo V8 M838TE mill which pumps out 570PS (562 bhp) and 600 Nm (443 lb ft) of torque. The power is delivered through the rear wheels via a seven-speed seamless-shift transmission with adjustment to the handling and powertrain settings available through Normal, Sport and Track. The UK pricing of the McLaren 570GT starts from £154,000 with first customer deliveries scheduled for July 2016.
The car will be displayed alongside two models from the McLaren Super Series, the 650S Spider and the 675LT Spider, the latter of which is also making its UK show debut. The 675LT Spider is the second model to wear the Longtail badge and is fastest open top McLaren model ever built. As many of you might know, the 570GT was showcased to the world way back in December 2015 and enjoys as a limited production run of only 500 units, all of which sold out within two weeks.
The London Motor Show will be taking place at the Battersea Evolution from 5-8 of May. Stay tuned for more updates from the show.
