Prior Design releases aerodynamic kit for McLaren 570S

Article by Christian A., on May 16, 2017

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.

Other exclusive features include the custom PD3CLForged wheels and the custom exhaust systems, both made in-house. An exclusive interior redesign is also available upon request, with the tuner willing to go all out in terms of color and material customization.

When it comes to the engine and the powertrain, the McLaren 570S is fitted with the twin-turbocharged 3799cc V8 engine capable of 562 hp (570 PS) with peak torque of 443 lb.-ft. (600 Nm). Paired to the seven-speed SSG transmission, this allows the 570S to go from 0 to 62 mph (0 to 100 km/h) in 3.2 seconds while having a top speed of 204 mph (328 km/h). Fuel economy meanwhile, under EU combined, is measured at 25.5 mpg (9.22 1/100 km) with CO2 emissions at 258 g/km. With an overall length of 4,530 mm, total width of 2,095, and height at 1,202 mm, the 570S has dry weight amounting to 2,896 lbs. (1,313 kg).

At least three variants have already been released. One of these is the 540C, which was revealed during the 2015 Shanghai Motor Show. Compared to the 570S, this model was developed with the goal of being able to offer better drivability and usability in terms of a daily drive. This means ride quality and city driving are both enhanced. It went on sale immediately and was priced lower than the 570S. This model though is not available in the U.S. as the brand wants to focus more on the 570S for this market.

Another variant is the 570GT which made its debut in last year’s Geneva Motor Show. Compared to the 570S, this is better for road trips though it is less track-focused. With a mid-mounted engine, the side opening cargo hatch allows for extra cargo space. Finally, let’s consider the 570S GT4 and the 570S Sprint. Unveiled during the Goodwood Festival of Speed, these are track modified versions of the 570. Only the 570S Sprint though was made available for customers with early models said to arrive early this year.
