Bespoke McLaren 570S Track Pack loses 25kg; gets taller rear wing

McLaren continues to kit out the 570S after coming up with the race-inspired Track Pack special. Billed as the ultimate Sport Series coupe for both road and track use, the 570S Track Pack gets better aerodynamics, along with an even lighter curb weight without sacrificing overall usability.

Contributing better downforce on the 570S Track Pack comes courtesy of a taller rear wing that that is 12mm taller than the standard wing. At 241 km/h, McLaren claimed that the new rear wing will deliver an additional 29kg of downforce for improved cornering and stability. It also comes with a specially painted Dark Palladium roof finish from McLaren Special Operations (MSO) and a sports exhaust as well.

Not only is the car more aerodynamic, McLaren also said that the Track Pack special is also lighter by 25kg. This was made possible after the automaker fitted the coupe with new super-light alloy wheels and Alcantara upholstery for the steering wheel, dashboard and carbon-fiber racing seats. With it, 0 – 200 km/h is now possible at 9.4 seconds, a tenth of a second quicker than the standard 570S. Top speed however, remains at 328 km/h.

Also included in the Track Pack are carbon-ceramic disc brakes and McLaren's Track Telemetry System as standard. The latter was first introduced in the P1 and 675LT and provides drivers real-time info like lap time, sector split-timing, driver performance comparo and even data-logging services.
