As we all know, McLaren is targeting new buyers with its new Sports Series range of supercars. Affordable supercars as they say, but priced closely to 150.000 GBP. The new McLaren 570S is the ice breaker and the first car to introduce the new series.

Following its global debut at the New York International Auto Show in April 2015, the new model range marks lightweight construction, including the use of a carbon fibre chassis, recognisable design values and a comprehensive specification list.

With pricing starting at £143,250, the 570S Coupe is available to order this fall with deliveries depending on market starting before the end of 2015 – the 540C Coupe, which retails from £126,000, follows in Q2 2016.

The latest addition to the range completes the three tier model strategy for McLaren alongside the Super Series and Ultimate Series. Weighing as little as 1,313kg (2,895lbs), thanks in part to the unique lightweight carbon fibre MonoCell II chassis, the Sports Series is almost 150kg lighter than its closest rival. Power is provided by an evolution of the 3.8-litre twin turbo V8 engine with 30 percent new components.
