McLaren has released an additional teaser image for their upcoming entry-level model called 570S Coupe.

Debuting a week from today, the first model part of the Sports Series will have 570 PS (419 kW) produced by the familiar twin-turbo V8 3.8-liter engine. There's also going to be an Asia-only "C" version which will reportedly be called 540C so it will have 540 PS (397 kW) and should debut at next month's Shanghai Auto Show. Both the 540C and 570S will feature a carbon fiber monocoque sourced from the 650S and P1 while in terms of pricing will compete with the Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S, respectively.

The first to come out will be the coupe, but McLaren plans to extend the range with a Spider version as well as a more hardcore Long Tail derivative in the same vein as the 675LT. The coupe is being described as a "pure McLaren" set to offer "class-leading levels of performance, coupled with optimized handling characteristics and driving dynamics." A track-only GT3 version is apparently in the works as well, but nothing is official at this point.

The McLaren 570S will make its world debut on April 1 at the 2015 New York Auto Show.
