A lot of aftermarket specialists have gone the way of upgrading the looks of the 570S over the years, but not that many have tampered with its engine or various performance parts it includes, despite essentially being a smaller version of its more power brothers and using similar technology.
That said, its age is starting to show, so the 570 horsepower delivered by its twin-turbocharged, 3.8-liter, flat-plane V8 is no longer as impressive as it was when the model first went on sale back in 2015, especially since the car will soon be replaced by a more powerful hybrid.
Southern Germany tuning company Pogea Racing decided that some McLaren customers don’t need to wait that long for some extra oomph from the smallest British model and not long ago unleashed an upgrade package that takes things to a truly diabolical level.
The 0-100 kph (62 mph) acceleration now takes just 2.9 seconds, which is close to extraordinary for a rear-wheel-drive road car, with only an extra 5 seconds being required to reach 200 kph (124 mph). Top speed is a respectable 334 kph (207.5 mph).
Unlike the days of yesteryear, when you needed an army of technicians to change almost every part of an engine to achieve an extra 96 horsepower and 200 Nm of torque, now it's almost all done through a computer and a better exhaust.
To achieve these numbers, Pogea fitted the model with an all-new exhaust system from its own company, MONSTERexhaust, with an X-pipe connection and two electric highspeed flaps dynamically controlled via the CANBUS and therefore EURO6 and TÜV-compliant in all driving modes.
To better control that extra grunt, Pogea has also fitted the McLaren 666S with a coil over suspension from KW and a set of Michelin Pilot Sport 4S shod on concave, bidirectional 20-inch Pogea Jules wheels.
Unlike other McLaren 570S tuning projects, the package doesn't a complete redesign of the model with the help of a wide body kit or fancy spoilers and wings. You can, of course, add all of those from someone else to complete the diabolical look of the car.
Surprisingly enough, the 666S kit only goes for 11,000 euros including VAT in Germany, which is almost a bargain if we don't consider that you also need to shell out $200,000+ for the car in the first place.
