McLaren Automotive is unveiling in metal its quickest and most powerful Sports Series model – the new McLaren 600LT -- at the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed. Built to dominate the race circuits and yet it is legal to be driven on the road, the new 600LT is the latest addition to McLaren’s Super Series family that already includes the McLaren 650S Coupe, 650S Spider, 675LT Coupe, 675LT Spider and 720S.
The new McLaren 600LT is effectively not only the latest Super Series model, but is also the latest McLaren to wear the Longtail (LT) badge. Taking inspiration from McLaren 675LT models and the McLaren Longtail F1 GTR racer, the new 600LT is laden with all the physical attributes of a Longtail like its longer rear diffuser, extended front splitter, fixed rear wing as well as elongated silhouette. Along with the flat carbon fiber floor, the distinct bodywork of 600LT help generate 100 kg of downforce at 250 km/h (155 mph), resulting to greater levels of grip and high-speed stability. The result is the most track-focused Super Series model from McLaren.
As expected, the new McLaren 600LT extensively employs carbon fiber. This material is used for the monocoque chassis and the new aerodynamic features. Along with other lightweight materials, carbon fiber helps the McLaren 600LT attain a lightest dry weight of 1,247 kg, with a power-to-weight ratio of 481 PS/ton.Read the entire article McLaren 600LT Super Series model to make its debut at 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed
Give your McLaren 570S Coupé, 570GT, or 570S Spider a meaner sound by installing MSO titanium exhaust
British automaker McLaren developed their MSO (McLaren Special Operations) division to make their already exclusive vehicles a little more bespoke. And today, we are going to discuss some of their newest and coolest products that indicate the company’s expertise in style and performance to the Sports Series range.
For instance, if you own a 570S Coupe, 570GT and 570S Spider, and you want to achieve a meaner sound, you can always order the new titanium exhaust. It is actually lighter than the stock unit by 11 pounds (5 kilograms). Best of all, it makes the sound it produces five decibels louder. MSO claims that the car’s new tone sounds cleaner and crisper, and that this comes from the rear end of the vehicle.
Today, the titanium exhaust runs 4,750 pounds ($6,570 at current exchange rates), and this part can be had in a Nano Black finish, instead of the standard Nano Clear colour. The good news here is that these add-ons will not only be available as an option for new cars, as later this year, MSO will be offering these as an upgrade to already existing Sports Series owners.Read the entire article Give your McLaren 570S Coupé, 570GT, or 570S Spider a meaner sound by installing MSO titanium exhaust
The McLaren F1 is considered to be one of the most difficult models to get your hands on and it’s even more elusive now especially since its prices have gone up in excess of $10 million when being auctioned.
So instead of letting customers cry over the F1, McLaren Newport Beach decided that they would work with their special division, McLaren Special Operations to give 10 of their customers the next best thing: custom MSO X examples of the 570S Coupe with exterior inspiration from the competition livery of an F1 GTR race car.
When looking at the MSO X 570S from the outside, it is apparent that the model gets inspiration from the 570S GT4 race car, except that they are road legal. The sides of the bumpers now get dive plates, while the competition inspired hood features additional intakes.Read the entire article McLaren Special Operations unveils MSO X: 10 road-legal 570S Coupes inspired by GT4
McLaren’s special department, the McLaren Special Operations (MSO) team, has created a unique colour that is a tribute to the home of the automaker’s founder, Bruce McLaren, in Surrey, England. This unique paint they call the Muriwai White has a white base with subtle hints of blue. We first saw it on the 570S Spider pictured here, but anyone can get their McLaren in this shade through MSO.
This white paint came to light with the help of Amanda McLaren, Bruce’s only child and a brand ambassador for McLaren Automotive. She worked with MSO to develop the special colour. Their family home in England was painted in white, accented with blue doors. You might be wondering where the name Muriwai originated. Well, it is a town in New Zealand, located northwest of Auckland where Bruce grew up and where he won his first hill climb at the young age of 15.
But there’s more to this story. Amanda also said during the announcement of the new paint that her mom, Patty, was at a dinner party once, and a palm reader told her that she would live in a big white house with blue doors and shutters. Following that, she said that this unique shade of white is a symbol of her father’s pride and her mother’s comfort. Her father died prematurely in 1970 at the age of 32. Now we understand what makes this unique hue so special for the McLaren family.Read the entire article McLaren’s special paint Muriwai White pays homage to founder’s home
Yes, there is no more reason to stay at home when it’s freezing outside. Some folks sometimes feel the need to just stay snuggled up at the fireplace most especially if the dreaded wet and snowy roads start to threaten those hot summer wheels. But what if you have better things to do than sip coffee all day or hang out with your bae while staring gloomily at the frosted window? Boy we’ve got some good news for you.
British car maker McLaren and Italian tire manufacturer Pirelli have partnered in developing a winter wheel and tire bundle for McLaren’s Sports Series. What does that mean exactly?
Pirelli has optimized the tires to perform whether on rain, snow or dry conditions and these have been integrated with McLaren’s tire pressure monitoring equipment that works in conjunction with the vehicle’s onboard systems. Developed for its latest 570S Spider as well as for the 570GT, 570S and 540C, each package will include four 14–spoke forged alloy wheels in Dark Metal Grey finish plus a set of Pirelli’s MC Sottozero 3 winter tires.Read the entire article Assembled Pirelli winter tires for your McLaren Sports Series cars are now available
Gazing at this beauty only reminds us how the McLaren 570S and the 720S supercar have always shared a resemblance. McLaren thoughtfully handed down its design cues to the entire range; beginning with the 650S followed by the 570S and later on, combined all of them with a bit of variations for the new 720hp model. Even so, we believe the 570GT and the 570S will continue to reign as McLaren’s true style icons. Further, did you know that by adding a small number of special body kits on a 570S, the results would be far more striking than anyone would have imagined?
Take for example, this McLaren 570S with a new set of chrome HRE Wheels. The very modest-looking twin five spoke wheels can make such big difference especially in making the car look sharper and more aggressive. Other than the variety of wheel design, the 570S can have a few other alternatives to highlight its side, front and rear profile. Aftermarket parts such as those that are made with carbon fiber, a new set of side skirts, new roof air vents, or maybe a modified rear wing and front end are available to help intensify its superb features.
As a refresher, the 570S range actually consists of three different models. There is the 570 GT, the 570 S Spider and the 570S Coupe. In all three, the S is the sportiest while the Gran Turismo is credited for providing comfort during long road trips. Despite the slight differences, these three share the same 3.8-liter twin turbo V8 engine capable of up to 562hp. Likewise, each one comes with a 7-speed dual clutch transmission to push power to the rear wheels. Having tested to run from zero to 60 miles per hour in 2.9 seconds, the S models obviously have slightly quicker acceleration than the GT albeit all three have the same 204 miles per hour top speed.Read the entire article Check out the chrome HRE Wheels on this aftermarket body kit for the McLaren 570S
It’s finally here, the much-awaited open-air version of the McLaren 570S. Two years after McLaren launched the coupe form of the McLaren 570S, the British carmaker is now opening the order books for the new McLaren 570S Spider. As designed and engineered, the new McLaren 570S Spider is basically the same as the McLaren 570S Coupe, but without the fixed roof.
The new McLaren 570S Spider is essentially the third body style of the carmaker’s Sports Series product family (570 family), following the McLaren 570S Coupé and the McLaren 570GT. The main difference between the 570S Spider and the 570S Coupe is the fact that the open-top version comes with a retractable roof. Of course, the new 570S Spider still offers splendid levels of dynamism and refinement, coupled with supercar attributes and attitude.
As intended, the new two-seat, rear-wheel drive is provided with two-piece retractable hardtop made from lightweight composite panels. This sleek roof was engineered using the technology employed in the McLaren 650S and 675LT Spider models. Operated electrically with just a simple push of a button in the driver’s cockpit, the roof could be opened or closed in around 15 seconds, as long as the McLaren 570S Spider is travelling at speeds of up to 40 km/h (25 mph).Read the entire article McLaren 570S Spider makes its official debut
Tuner Prior Design revealed that for the McLaren 570S, it will be offering an aerodynamics kit in full carbon. Since the kit will come with a set of custom dual-spoke wheels, the tuner is also including a customized H&R suspension.
Through the PD1 aerodynamics kit, the McLaren 570S is able to get a more aggressive appearance. This is due to a combination of the side air intakes placed on the bumper in the front, side skirts with wings, side blades, fender attachments, roof scoop, and the diffuser and wing in the rear.
Tuner Prior Design revealed as well that for the interior, it will be offering an exclusive design but this is only available on request. Still, the tuner said it will go all out not only when it comes to the customization of the color but even for the materials.Read the entire article Prior Design releases aerodynamic kit for McLaren 570S
Since 1999, German auto tuner WheelsAndMore has been in the business of redefining sports, luxury and exotic cars. They specialize in customizing “multi-piece special lightweight wheels”, pairing these “new shoes” with even more power – offering valve-controlled exhaust systems for sports and supersport cars, as well as power upgrades. All these upgrades are handcrafted to ensure high-end quality for these customized cars. They offer customization for high-end vehicles such as the Ford GT, the Maserati MC Stradale, Mercedes-AMG GT R, and the latest being the McLaren 570GT.
Customization of the McLaren 570GT starts by adding sports catalytic converters, low-pressure exhaust system, and giving it a software upgrade. These allow the 570GT’s 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine to produce 650 PS (641 horsepower) and 700 Nm (516 lb.-ft.) of torque – that’s about 80 PS (79 hp) and 100 Nm (74 lb.-ft.) more than the standard Grand Tourer. With this much power, the tuned 570GT has the capacity to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62mph) in only 3.2 seconds, which is 0.2 seconds quicker than the standard version. Although packed with more power, it does not change the top speed record at 328 km/h (204 mph).
WheelsAndMore also offers appearance upgrades. These include a set of height-adjustable springs – but no worries, these will not affect the nose-lift system (the one that’s responsible for assuring passengers a smooth ride over speed bumps) of the vehicle. The German tuning company also offers 20-inch front and 21-inch rear F.I.W.E handmade ultralight forged wheels – WheelsAndMore’s very own creation – which are respectively wrapped in 235/30 and 295/30 ContiSportContact 6 tires. And according to them, these are “nicer and wilder” than the standard 570GT rims, perfect for those who want to kick it up a notch in terms of exterior design.Read the entire article WheelsAndMore showcases tuning expertise on the McLaren 570GT
McLaren car owners will be thanking the automotive company as it has decided to roll out new goodies for the 540C, 570S and 570GT sports car line-up. From this series of accessories, they surely can enhance their rides to compete with the new releases of car companies far and wide, not only for aesthetic purposes but also to increase their protection.
McLaren Special Operations (MSO) came up with a tier of personalized packages fit to either protect or enhance the said super cars. MSO has shown off an array of personalized cars lately, including the new 720S that was unveiled earlier this month at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. MSO is the division of McLaren automotive solely responsible for client's commissions. This department has 5 level of services: MSO Limited, MSO Defined, MSO Programmes, MSO Heritage and the MSO Bespoke division.
It should also be mentioned that the brand offers new floor mats and cargo-area mats. The British automaker protection products are made to keep the prized materials of the Sports Series in mint condition. Indoor and outdoor covers to protect your beloved vehicle's bodywork and paint are now at hand. Also available are skid plates that can be mounted underneath the vehicles and shield the ever delicate front diffusers from grating against speed bumps and curbs.Read the entire article McLaren launches accessories for the 540C, 570S, and 570GT Sports Series
After introducing the first ever MP4-12C in the last 5 years, McLaren once again celebrates an important milestone in history. The British car manufacturer has just completed the production of its 10,000th vehicle and it’s none other than the 570S in Ceramic Grey.
This unusual shade comes from the MSO’s “Defined” bespoke color chart. Mike Flewitt their CEO, fondly recalls how they built the first half of the 10,000 units, saying that it went on for at least 42 months. As a matter of fact, the team worked extensively from McLaren’s Production Centre in England to build its 5,000th car.
Considering that time frame, who would think it would only take them 22 months to finish the second half? But they did! The “pace of development” says a lot how far the company has grown all these years. McLaren indeed has a lot to be thankful for.Read the entire article McLaren builds its 10,000th car
Celebrated around the world for being one of the best refinement specialists, NOVITEC has for many years been releasing highly exclusive models. These include automobiles from Ferrari, Lamborghini, and Maserati. Now, NOVITEC has revealed that it will also be releasing exclusive options for the McLaren.
To start off, the company will be offering a wide range of products for the McLaren 570S. This includes a kit that improves the aerodynamics and was made in the wind tunnel. Forged hi-tech wheels will be included as well in order to give the 570S a more magnificent look.
One option that customers are sure to love is what NOVITEC intends to do with the engine. At present, the 570S is powered by the 8-cylinder 3.8-liter engine that comes with two turbochargers. In order to make the tuned version more appealing, engine specialists at NOVITEC created for the 570S three performance kits that can offer extra power by simply pressing a button. One of these ensures that the engine delivers the best performance with power of 475 kW (646 hp) and maximum torque at 692 Nm. This allows the tuned version to reach maximum speed at 335 km/h.Read the entire article Novitec lineup now includes McLaren models
We know that the McLaren 570S is already a lean and mean machine. Along with its racing-inspired design, the McLaren 570S also boasts of racing-inspired dynamics, thanks to its 3.8-liter V8 twin-turbo engine that has an uncanny ability to deliver a max output of 570 PS (562 hp) and a peak torque of 600 Nm (443 lb-ft) for a top speed of 204 mph (328 km/h). Another contributor to the supreme performance of this supercar is the fact that it weighs just 1,344 kilograms.
But for engineers at McLaren, they decided that they could make the McLaren 570S lighter. And they did. Thanks to a new package called Track Pack, the McLaren 570S is lighter by 25 kg and is more stable when tackling high-speed corners. This will likely make the McLaren 570S more competitive on the track, in which the effect of the Track Pack will be most felt. Of course, the McLaren 570S will be more engaging on the road sans any compromise in its ability to deliver an enjoyable drive.
To achieve this, McLaren included a number of tweaks in the Track Pack. For instance, the pack includes carbon-fiber racing seats wrapped in Alcantara, which also serves as the covering for the dashboard and the steering wheel. The Pack also replaced the standard wheels with stealth-finish super-lightweight alloy wheels. Without the pack, the McLaren 570S could zoom from zero to 124 mph (200 km/h) in just 9.5 seconds. But with the Track Pack, the McLaren 570S could sprint from nil to 124 mph in around 9.4 seconds, shaving off a tenth of a second from standard time. However, the top speed of the McLaren 570S remains the same even with the addition of the optional Track Pack.Read the entire article Optional Track Pack can make the McLaren 570S lighter, quicker and more stable
One of the many challenges that can be experienced in buying a McLaren is in selecting from the many specifications available for the model. The various choices for the interior and the exterior, like the material, the color, and finish, to name a few, are staggering. Note that this is even before one has the chance to look into what the personalization service of the McLaren Special Operations can do.
There is however some good news as the brand revealed that for those planning to get the McLaren 570S, the process has been made easier with the release of five groups of options dubbed the “Design Editions.”
Let’s start with power. The special editions are fitted with standard equipment that’s definitely not of the ordinary variety. Specifically, these models are powered by the twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 engine with output of 570 hp (425 kW) with top torque of 442 lb.-ft. (600 Nm). All of the power is then transmitted by the dual-clutch 7-speed gearbox to the rear wheels. With this, the 570S is able to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (0 to 100 km/h) in merely 3.2 seconds with maximum speed coming in at 204 mph (328 km/h). The figures are considered as excellent given that the 570S is an entry-level supercar.Read the entire article McLaren releases 5 fascinating Design Editions for 570S
Had we known supercars will be treated roughly by their reckless owners, then buyers should have been thoroughly scrutinized before releasing these majestic beasts to their care. It is heartbreaking to witness a supercar wrecked into unrecognizable pieces, its glory days gone in a blink of an eye, all because of thoughtless driving. And it looks like many of these supercar crashes happen in China, the latest one involving a McLaren 570S.
The accident happened near Shanghai and is one of the first McLaren 570S crashes that has been reported. From the photos posted by GlobalCarWanted, the exotic car has been heavily damaged, the accident completely ruining the front end of what was once a regal masterpiece. Heavy dents are also found on both sides of the supercar which could be an indication that it must have spun around hitting the guardrail for quite some time before coming to a full stop.
There hasn’t been any official statement on what really happened before the crash but judging by the looks of the British supercar, it looks like high speed is a factor to be reckoned with. It is said that the supercar came on a head-on collision with a larger car. Upon closer look, images from the accident show an SUV parked on the emergency lane which some speculate might have been involved.Read the entire article McLaren 570S is a total wreck after huge crash in Shanghai, China
Vorsteiner has unveiled at the 2016 Specialty Equipment Market Association (2016 SEMA Show) styling packages not only for the McLaren 570S but also for the McLaren 570GT. With these style packages, the entry-level supercar of this Woking-based company can be transformed to an excellent vehicle that looks a lot similar to the P1 GTR.
For those not familiar, the Mclaren P1 GTR is considered as one of the most outrageous modern vehicles there is. This model was designed not only to allow for record lap times but to pump the driver full of adrenaline. Since this version is designed for the tracks, the hybrid powertrain gets power courtesy of the twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V8 engine with output of 789 hp (800 PS) and electric motor which can offer 197 hp (200 PS).
Overall output of the powertrain is therefore at 986 hp (1,000 PS). This racing-only version, when compared to the standard P1, has the track in the front wider by 80 mm with the ride height lowered by 50 mm. Its entire body has a number of aerodynamic features like the wing in the rear which has been positioned above the bodywork by as much as 400 mm. Because of this, the McLaren has a body that can create downforce of 1,455 lbs. (660 kg) when running at 150 mph.Read the entire article Vorsteiner 570-VX dreams of being a McLaren P1 GTR
Physics will tell us that driving on a close to zero-friction surface will most likely leads to broken bones and wrecked cars. When it’s close to impossible to even walk across a frozen lake, the harder it is to cross with a set of wheels. Well, sure we’ve got handy dandy spikes to keep the car from slipping but still, we have to take extra caution when navigating through these perilous paths – which means traversing with less power than what we’re used to in normal conditions.
Controlling 100-horsepower (75 kW) on a snow-covered and icy road is already an arduous task, what more with a 570-horsepower (425 kW) car? A few would probably chicken out but a few crazy, lucky, and hopefully, well-trained individuals brave themselves to take on the challenge to wrestle a 570-horsepower McLaren 570S on the latest Pure McLaren Arctic Experience.
For those who do not know, British supercar creator McLaren put up an in-house experience provider called Pure McLaren which organizes track days, driving schools and tours. This icy McLaren 570S experience will be done 200 miles inside the Arctic Circle and inside the massive Test World facility in Ivalo, Finland.Read the entire article $15K will allow you to drive a McLaren 570S on ice at the 3-day Arctic Experience
McLaren Automotive is introducing two new track-dedicated models of the Sports Series -- the 570S GT4 and the 570S Sprint. Interestingly, owners of the 570S Sprint could have their track racer upgraded to GT4 specifications. The McLaren 570S GT4 is underpinned by the carbon fiber MonoCell II chassis architecture that also underpins other Sports Series models.
This will mark the first time for this technology to be adapted for the GT4 category, where race-derived material could prove very advantageous because of its strength and light weight nature. Moreover, the McLaren 570S GT4 comes with an FIA-approved rollcage and fire extinguisher system, thereby helping ensure that the driver is protected from harm.
The track car’s re-profiled bodywork – makes use of carbon fiber and aluminum – that is formed over wider track on both front and rear, thereby provides room for the center-locking lightweight cast magnesium alloy wheels wrapped in Pirelli racing tires. The front and rear axles of the McLaren 570S GT4 feature two-way adjustable motorsport dampers with coil-over springs. An on-board air jacking system is fitted as standard on the McLaren 570S GT4.Read the entire article McLaren Automotive to launch track-focused 570S GT4 and the 570S Sprint models
McLaren Automotive has commenced production of its touted Sports Series family of luxury sports cars at its McLaren Production Centre (MPC) in Woking, England. First to be rolled out to the market is the McLaren 570S Coupé, followed by the McLaren 540C Coupé.
McLaren will roll out another body style next year. In fact, McLaren has already shipped the first 570S Coupé to a retailer in the United Kingdom. The British currently has over 1,000 orders as taken by its retailer network all over the world.
The production start of the Sports Series marks a new milestone in McLaren’s history while completing its three-tier product strategy of Ultimate Series, Super Series and Sports Series.Read the entire article McLaren Automotive starts production of Sports Series cars at Woking site
Fans get a treat from McLaren at the 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed as they get to witness the global debut of the McLaren 570S Coupé. Joining it are the rarely seen McLaren P1 GTR and 650S Le Mans, which are both in very limited production. This is the first time for McLaren to demonstrate models from three of its product tiers, namely: Sports Series, Super Series and Ultimate Series.
The McLaren House will go back to its location last year, beside the Goodwood House and overlooking the Hill course. It will honor this festival’s theme of the year “Flatout and Fearless” with its cars, McLaren memorabilia, and guest speakers. Earlier this year, the 570S Coupé was at the New York International Auto Show.
It then went on a very successful worldwide tour. But for this Festival weekend, it will take on the Goodwill Hill course. The lightweight 570S Coupé is powered by a 3.8-litre twin turbo V8 engine that delivers 570PS (562bhp), making it the most powerful model in the newly launched Sports Series. It also marks the entry of McLaren genes and supercar performance to the sports car segment.Read the entire article McLaren 570S Coupe set to make dynamic debut at 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed
