New McLaren 570S track car sprints into Goodwood

When it revealed the 570S GT4 race car earlier this year, McLaren mentioned that a 570S Sprint track car would be forthcoming. It took a few months, but now the 570S Sprint is here, having made its debut at the 2016 Goodwood Festival of Speed. Unrestricted by the rules of race or road, the 570S Sprint offers plenty of power and torque, along with a newly tuned ride that's hungry for the nearest track. In short, it's the "most track-focused model in the McLaren Sports Series lineup."Read More

A closer look at the new McLaren 570GT

When McLaren re-entered the road car arena, it was on the back of the brand's strong motorsport connection. But not all buyers are after a road-going racer – some need room for luggage, and others want to enjoy their supercars on cross-country jaunts. That's where the 570GT comes in. With more luggage space than a Ford Focus, and a softer suspension than the 570S, the GT is designed to open McLaren up to buyers with dreams of practical, long distance motoring. Gizmag was on hand at the Australian launch to chat with designer Robert Melville.Read More

The 570GT should change all of that, thanks to some extra luggage space, a more luxurious interior and unique suspension tuning.Read More
