2017 McLaren 570S Track Pack Option Priced at £16,500

It may be the smallest road-going McLaren in production today, but the first-ever member of the Sports Series shouldn’t be taken lightly. If, however, the 570S isn’t hardcore enough for you, McLaren is much obliged to sell you an option inspired by the British automaker’s success in GT3- and GT4-class racing.

Priced at £16,500, which is the starting price of a Ford Focus, the Track Pack adds plenty of goodies to the 570S without compromising cabin comfort. Hear that, Porsche? So anyway, that bundle of cash buys Alcantara upholstery for the interior (dashboard and steering wheel included), Stealth-finish lightweight alloy wheels, carbon fiber seats, and a higher rear wing.

Regarding the latter, 12 millimeters of additional height adds 29 kilograms (64 pounds) of downforce at 150 mph (240 km/h). That’s like strapping an Alaskan Malamute dog to the rear of the car, but in the end, the extended wing aids the car with more grip than the regular McLaren 570S has to offer.

Retaining the standard model’s carbon ceramic brakes, the 570S with the Track Pack also prides itself on a McLaren Special Operations-spec roof finish. 25 kilograms (55 pounds) lighter than the 570S, the Track Pack is blessed with a must-have for track day junkies: the McLaren Track Telemetry system.

As seen on the mind-boggling McLaren 675LT and McLaren P1 hypercar, Track Telemetry provides real-time information regarding sector splits, lap times, lap time deltas, post-drive analysis, data-logging with graphical plots, the whole nine yards. Now available to order, first deliveries of 570S Track Pack vehicles for the UK market will commence in early 2017.

Late in 2017, the Sports Series will add a new family member in the form of the McLaren 570S Spider. At the present moment, it’s not known if the Track Pack option will be available for the upcoming Sport Series model.

 

Announcing the #McLaren 570S with Track Pack. The car includes an extended rear wing that generates an additional 29kg of downforce at 150mph, as well as styling cues like a Dark Palladium roof finish and stealth sports exhaust. Inside, a lightweight interior package with Alcantara® replaces leather for the seats, dashboard and steering wheel covering, plus brings the introduction of carbon-fibre racing seats. The end result is a 25Kg weight reduction. Also included is McLaren's track telemetry system, which has been used in the McLaren 675LT and McLaren P1TM. The 570S with Track Pack is available to order now. ------------------------------------- #mclaren #mclaren570S #trackpack #cars #supercars #carpic #instapic #picoftheday
