McLaren unleash the 570S Sprint

McLaren has revealed the new 570S Sprint, which will make its first public appearance on-track at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend.

The 570S Sprint is the newest addition to the Sport Series range and is the most track-focused model. The Sprint shares some underpinnings with its more extreme racing siblings, the 570S GT4 racer and P1 GTR; however it is a lot cheaper and easier to drive.

The track-only version of the 570S, receives chassis and aerodynamic tweaks, as well as some racing equipment, making the car’s handling and performance circuit-ready. The Sprint has a lightweight carbon foundation and is powered by a 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 engine.

Externally, there is a large front splitter and the car comes with lightweight centre-locking, cast magnesium wheels with Pirelli racing tyres. There is an optional air-jacking system that can be added for an extra price to make tyre changes quicker.  The new model is fitted with a high-temperature radiator similar to a GT3, which improves cooling.

Internally, the Sprint gets FIA-approved spec, including a 6-point racing harness and bucket seat, roll-cage and fire extinguisher system.  The passenger seat is optional. The track car can be upgraded using McLaren’s ‘Compliance Pack’ to full GT4 racing specification.

The Sprint comes as standard in McLaren Orange, however can be customised in any colour from the both the 570S road car or the MSO palette.

The starting price for the basic McLaren 570S Sprint is £148,000 and first deliveries will begin in early 2017.
