McLaren has staged the world premiere of the 570S Coupe this week at the New York Auto Show.

Serving as the company's base model, the 570S is not really all that much different compared to the 650S as it has the same carbon fiber monocoque and twin-turbo V8 3.8-liter engine. In this configuration, McLaren says the engine has 30% new components and delivers 570 HP (419 kW) & 600 Nm (443 lb-ft).

It needs 3.2 seconds until 62 mph (100 km/h) and will top out at 204 mph (328 km/h) while fuel consumption in the combined cycle stands at 9.2 liters / 100 km (25.5 mpg US or 30.6 mpg UK), with 258 g/km of CO2 emissions.

With a styling largely carried over from the 650S & P1, the McLaren 570S Coupe looks very familiar and weighs 2,895 lbs (1,313 kg), with the weight being distributed 42:58. It rides on 19-inch alloys shod in 225/35/R19 tires combined with 20-inch rear wheels wrapped around in 285/35 R20 tires. The 570S gets standard carbon ceramic brakes, front & rear anti-roll bars and a new front & rear suspension with adaptive dampers.

Part of the newly established Sports Series, the McLaren 570S will cost £143,250 in United Kingdom. It will be joined very soon by an Asia-only 540C variant which as the name suggests will have 540 HP (397 kW).
