570S GT4 race car also to make U.S. debut.
The upcoming Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance will mark your first opportunity to see the McLaren 570GT and the 570S GT4 on U.S. soil. Both cars will be displayed during the Monterey Car Week festivities in California later this month.
The McLaren 570GT will be on display at the McCall’s Motorworks Revival on Wednesday, August 17. Then it will be available at the McLaren Driver Experience Center based at the Bernardus Lodge in Carmel Valley, California, from Thursday through Saturday; potential customers can take 30-minute test drives in the 570GT and 570S. Finally, the 570GT will bow at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance on Sunday.
The McLaren 570GT is the latest entry in the company’s Sports Series lineup. It’s a more livable, everyday version of the McLaren 570S, with a slightly more comfortable ride, improved cargo capacity, and a glass panoramic roof. That said, there’s still plenty of performance on tap: a mid-mounted 3.8-liter biturbo V8 produces 562 horsepower and can rocket the 570GT to 60 miles per hour in just 3.4 seconds.
The McLaren 570S GT4, meanwhile, goes to the other end of the automotive spectrum. It’s a race-only model with a taller rear wing for improved downforce, a new carbon-fiber front splitter, magnesium-alloy wheels with Pirelli slick tires, and other race-ready upgrades. It will be shown at The Quail, a Motorsports Gathering, in Monterey alongside four classic McLaren Formula 1 cars, starting on Friday, August 19.
