A new report indicates the first model part of the McLaren Sports Series will be called "570S".

Scheduled to make its debut early next month at the New York Auto Show, McLaren's entry-level model will wear the 570S moniker which indicates the twin-turbo V8 3.8-liter engine has been detuned to deliver 570 HP (419 kW). We already know there's going to be a C version and chances are that will be the Club model set to be commercialized only in Asia with slightly less power, just like the 650S has 650 HP while the 625C is rated at 625 HP.

Following the coupe's introduction, McLaren will launch a Spider version and then a grand tourer derivative providing more trunk space. Later on during the car's lifespan, a more hardcore variant will join the range with more power and less weight, possibly the Long Tail version which has already been confirmed by McLaren CEO Mike Flewitt.

We already know the 570S will get a carbon fiber monocoque just like its more expensive siblings and will be equipped with a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. In terms of performance, expect the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run to take less than four seconds before reaching a maximum speed of around 180 mph (290 km/h).

We will have all the details at the beginning of April when the McLaren 570S will premiere at the New York Auto Show. Pricing in United States is estimated to kick off at $180,000.
