McLaren 570S Priced from $184,900 in the US, Cheaper 540C Confirmed

McLaren has announced at the New York Auto Show that the all-new 570S Coupe will have a base price of $184,900 in the United States, making it just $2,200 more expensive than the base Porsche 911 Turbo S. In the UK, the McLaren 570S starts from £143,250.

That’s obviously a different kind of “entry-level” vehicle, but the Sports Series will also offer a cheaper, lower-powered model – the 540C Coupe, which starts from £126,000 in the United Kingdom. US pricing for the 540C hasn’t been announced yet, but it should be offered for around $160,000, provided that McLaren decides to offer it in the United States. The McLaren 540C Coupe will debut at the Shanghai Auto Show later this month.

As a quick reminder, the McLaren 570S is powered by an evolution of the 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine which features 30 percent new components. The unit produces 570PS (562hp) at 7,400 rpm and 600Nm (443lb ft) between 5,000 and 6,500 rpm. With a curb weight of 1,313kg (2,895 lbs), McLaren says the 570S is almost 150kg (331 lbs) lighter than its closest rival.

Thanks to a power-to-weight ratio of 434PS per ton (5 lbs per hp), the McLaren 570S accelerates from 0 to 100km/h (62 mph) in 3.2 seconds and to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 9.5 seconds, while top speed is 328 km/h (204mph).

Global deliveries of the Sports Series will begin later this year.
