McLaren has announced plans to offer both the 540C and 570S in Canada.

Currently available to order, the entry-level 540C starts at $196,500 and features a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 engine that develops 540 PS (533 bhp / 397 kW) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque.  It is connected to a seven-speed seamless shift gearbox (SSG) which enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 3.5 seconds before hitting a top speed of 320 km/h (199 mph). 

Moving up to the $219,750 McLaren 570S rewards buyers with an upgraded twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 engine that produces 570 PS (562 bhp / 419 kW) and 600 Nm (443 lb-ft) of torque. Thanks to the extra oomph, the model runs from 0-100 km/h in 3.2 seconds before topping out at 328 km/h (204 mph).

While the 540C will be available in Canada, McLaren spokesperson JP Canton told Autoguide "Essentially the car will be homologation for the U.S., but it is highly unlikely we will import it."
