McLaren Elevates the 570GT with Sport Pack and Design Editions

McLaren Elevates the 570GT with Sport Pack and Design Editions”

McLaren's "luxury" Sports Series vehicle - can now be had with the Sport Handling pack, essentially combining the best of the 570 S and 570GT.

If selected, McLaren will apply calibration changes to the chassis and fit the same steering rack, damper actuators and uprights to match the setup of the 570S.

McLaren has introduced upgrades to its Sports Series for 2018 that focus mainly on the 570GT and make this usually more comfortable vehicle a bit sharper.

The 570GT sees the introduction of a variable tint electrochromic panoramic roof that allows owners to change the opacity of the glass roof through a range of UV-filtering tints.

For the 2018 model year, McLaren has made standard the previously optional carbon ceramic brakes and when selecting the £4,900 Sport Pack the 570GT nearly reaches the levels of the sporty 570S, thanks to the included amenities.

Five new design packs are also on offer for the 570GT, with McLaren taking inspiration from popular customer combinations to come up with these special options. These include: "Silica White exterior with Saddle Tan and Carbon Black interior; Pacific Blue with Jet Black and Areia (cream); Blade Silver with Natural Tan and Carbon Black; Fire Black with Jet Black and Areia; and Storm Grey with Jet Black and Almond White".

At a premium of £4,900, customers can spec the package which makes the vehicle stiffer and feel similar to the 570S Coupe and Spider models. Lightweight 10-spoke forged alloys and optional black paint callipers are also available across the range. All 570S Coupes earn a 12-millimeter (0.47-inch) taller rear spoiler, which was introduced as part of an optional Track Package in 2017.

The 570S Coupe also brings six different Alcantara interior options which can be added as a cost-option.

The changes bring a price hike to all Sports Series models except the 570S Spider, however, the local arm's managing director George Biggs says sales should continue to break new ground for the British supercar maker here.

"Sports Series has a strong appeal to Australian customers, this is demonstrated by our VFACTS sales data", he said.

"The recent launch of the 570S Spider and the latest inclusion of these new product upgrades, it will strengthen and continue our sales momentum this year".

The 540C is now priced from $350,000, up from $325,000, while the 570S Coupe costs $395,000, an additional $16,000.
