McLaren 570S with Awe Tuning Exhaust Sounds Like Bees Going Through its V8

Using the junior tag for McLaren's Sport Series offerings is one of the common mistakes those who haven't experienced the might of Woking machines can make.

Let's take the 570S, for instance. Now that the 720S has replaced the 650S, the five-named model is pretty far from its big brother in terms of performance and yet the kind of experience the 570S delivers still qualifies for supercar territory.

And, as if that wasn't enough, the Macca also packs plenty of tuning potential. Aftermarket developers are well aware of this and have taken full advantage of the McLaren 570S's might.

The more recent example of the sort comes from AWE Tuning, with the US specialist having recently showcased an exhaust system for the Macca. The hardware, which also involved high-flow cats, is built from stainless steel, while the package also includes waffled Inconel heat shielding.

As you can expect from an exhaust whose aim is to one-up the factory hardware, the goodie we have here brings benefits on multiple fronts.

For one thing, the custom exhaust is 15 lbs lighter than the stock one, while also bringing output gains for the twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 occupying the center of the beast.

While we're used to talking about max output gains, the said aftermarket specialist doesn't mention such numbers. Instead, we are being told that the maximum gains, which come lower in the rpm range, sit at 17 horses and 15 lb-ft of torque.

Then there's the decibel boost delivered by the system - the X-pipe included in the setup promises to offer an "exotic" tone. So, does the hardware deliver on that? We're inviting you to check out the violent launch in the video below in order to get your answer. And yes, the shenanigan was pulled in traffic, with a stoplight serving as the assistant for this stunt.
