McLaren Automotive is all set to showcase its largest selection of models to date at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. The company will showcase the full three tier model range, including the latest in the recently-launched Sports Series – the McLaren 570GT. The 570GT is a two-seater, mid-engined sportscar which is practical enough for everyday use. The 570GT is the most refined and road-biased McLaren yet, designed with a focus on day-to-day usability and long distance comfort.
The McLaren 570GT joined the league of 570S Coupé and 540C Coupé as the third model in the recently announced Sports Series family. The front fascia of the 570GT borrows its cues from the 570S Coupé, with the front bumper featuring a pronounced point which generates the centre of pressure, piercing the air to reduce drag and forming four quadrants. The bonnet features strong crease lines which optimise airflow over the front fenders and into the side air intakes, and at the same time a sleek and refined silhouette. Aero Blades below the front bumper are angled to produce an area of high pressure ahead of the low temperature radiators. The 570GT measures 4,530 mm in length, is 2,095 mm wide, and 1,201 mm tall with a wheelbase of 2,670 mm. The 570GT comes a redesigned roof and tail-end structure, a rear load bay that’s accessible through a glass hatch, and a host of trim and equipment upgrades.
Speaking of the interior, the basic structure remains the same as seen on the other models in the Sports Series, levels of craftsmanship throughout the interior of the 570GT are of the highest level, upholstered and specified with quality materials and the latest technologies throughout. It also features TFT LCD digital instrument cluster, dual-zone air conditioning system, and a eight speaker McLaren Audio Plus is fitted as standard.
Under the hood, the 570GT draws its power from similar engine incorporated in McLaren 570S i.e. 3.8-litre V8 Twin Turbo that is paired with a 7-speed dual clutch transmission develops 570 PS and 600 Nm of torque. The lightweight yet extremely stiff chassis contributes to a dry weight of 1,350 kg. This equates to 422 PS per tonne, providing breathtaking performance of the power package, where it can bolt from 0 – 100 kmph in mere 3.4 seconds and can reach to 200 kmph in 9.8 seconds with a top speed of 328 kmph.
