The first, and the higher powered, of two models in the McLaren Sports Series, the 570S introduces McLaren’s unique F1-inspired DNA to the sports car segment. Unsurprisingly, its performance statistics are astonishing. 0-100km/h is dispatched in a scant 3.2 seconds, 200 km/h comes up in 9.5 seconds, and the top track speed is 328 km/h (204mph).

A mid-engined, rear-wheel drive sports car, the 570S is powered by McLaren’s own M838T E (E standing for Evolution) 3.8-litre twin turbo V8, which generates 570PS (562 bhp) and 600 Nm (443 lb ft) of torque. Thanks to a dry weight of just 1313 kg with lightweight options, it is more than 160kg lighter than nearest competitor, and features a class-leading power to weight ratio: 434PS per tonne.
