How Much Faster Is A Track Pack-Equipped McLaren 570S On The Track?

On paper, the optional Track Pack McLaren offers for the 570S is designed to make it faster and more capable on track from its regular siblings.

You would think that the pack for a car like this would contain features like beefier suspension parts, bigger brakes, perhaps even a bit more power from the twin-turbo V8.

But no, McLaren has left all of the above untouched and the only things the Track Pack adds is a higher rear wing for more downforce, a sports exhaust, lightweight alloy wheels and a set of carbon-fiber racing seats which weigh 25kg less than the standard ones.

Despite the obvious lack of upgraded features, McLaren reckons that a 570S fitted with the Track Pack should be around half a second to a second quicker around most tracks.

Now you could argue that paying the extra £16,500 McLaren asks for the Track Pack is not exactly good value for money, but what about the person who enjoys track-driving on a regular basis?
