Check out the chrome HRE Wheels on this aftermarket body kit for the McLaren 570S

Article by Christian A., on August 3, 2017

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.

As for the latest update, the 2018 McLaren 570S Spider has been launched internationally with a claimed top speed of 328 kilometers per hour. Tipping the scales at 1,359kg, McLaren’s convertible is just slightly heavier than the 750S and yes, a bit slower than the coupe.

All the same, the new Spider runs from zero to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds and 200km/h in just 6.4 seconds before reaching a quarter mile at exactly 11 seconds. True enough, the 570S range remains among the fastest cars from McLaren. Now that the two-piece hardtop convertible has come, it sure won’t hurt if you dress up your 570S Coupe a bit.
