McLaren to broaden Sports Series with 570S Sprint
This year's Goodwood Festival of Speed will see McLaren reveal an all-new track-ready coupe in the form of the 570S Sprint. When revealed, the 570S Sprint will become the third model from the brand's Sport Series lineup after the 570S Coupe and the more recent 570S GT4.
Official images of the new 570S Sprint were not available but McLaren did say it will be slightly different from the 570S GT4. According to the company, the Sprint model will be a dedicated track-day car and will be unrestricted by racing regulations. With it, the car may likely get a different aerodynamic bodykit along with lighter body panels and components.
Under the hood, the Sprint will be powered by the same 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 that churns out 570 PS at 7,400 rpm and 600 Nm of torque available between 5,000 – 6,500 rpm. A 7-speed Sequential Shift Gearbox (SSG) transfers power to the wheels.
Apart from the upcoming 570S Sprint, McLaren will also be showcasing special edition models at the 2016 Goodwood Festival. These include the: 650S Can Am from MSO, 675 LT Spider and the flagship supercar, the P1 GTR.
Also to be present will be the 1986 MP4-2C which won the the Formula 1 season of the same year. Driven by Alan Prost, McLaren considers it as one of their most successful racecars to date.
