McLaren is preparing to showcase its largest selection of models to date at the show in Geneva, where it will also bring the new 570GT. The third vehicle of the Sports Series is joining the 570S Coupe and 540C Coupe, carrying a starting price of $214,270 (£154,000) in the UK.
The British manufacturer explains this is “the most luxurious and refined of any McLaren to date”, designed with a focus on “day-to-day usability and long distance comfort.” It offers room for two passengers, sitting in eight-way electrically adjustable sports leather seats as standard.
Engineers have installed a fixed glass panoramic roof, treated with 18 percent transmission tint, the same as the glass roof of the McLaren P1. The roof also features the so-called SSF (Sound & Solar Film) to absorb solar radiation while providing additional noise insulation.
Just like in the Coupe models, the 570GT has a 150-liter front luggage space, but it also comes with a second 220-liter space, available behind the seats on the leather-lined Touring Deck. This additional trunk is accessed through a side opening.
Under the skin lays a 3.8-liter V8 biturbo engine which generates 570 horsepower (419 kW) and 443 pound-feet (600 Nm) of torque. Power reaches the rear wheels via a seven-speed seamless-shift transmission, working in Normal, Sport, and Track modes. 0-62 miles per hour (0-100 kilometers per hour) acceleration takes 3.4 seconds, while the 124 mph (200 km/h) mark is reached in 9.8 seconds.
The model shares its suspension with the Coupe versions, but the mechanism has been retuned to deliver a reduction in spring rate stiffness of 15 percent at the front and 10 percent at the rear. The suspension can be adjusted through Normal, Sport, and Track settings.
