McLaren Sport Series Gets Styling And Performance Upgrades From 1016 Industries

1016 Industries has introduced their new tuning program for the McLaren Sport Series which consists of the 540 C, 570 S, and 570 GT.

On the styling front, the cars are equipped with a carbon fiber front splitter and “exaggerated” aero blades. The sporty styling continues further back as the company installs new side blades which give the model an aggressive appearance.

Other notable changes include a new hood and an adjustable rear wing. The latter offers eight levels of height adjustment as well as five different fixed angles.

Drivers looking for more meaningful upgrades can order an intelligent engine control module which enables the V8 to produce an additional 50-60 hp (37-44 kW) and 70-80 lb-ft (94-108 Nm) of torque.

The company also offers a transmission recalibration program which has “carefully re-imaged torque schedules, gearshift points, gearshift speeds and, most importantly, intuitive intelligence between the engine and throttle mechanisms.”

1016 Industries says the power upgrades have an optional app that can be used to adjust settings on the fly. This allows owners to make their own adjustments or fully disengage the performance modifications altogether.

The company declined to say how fast the upgraded Sport Series is but the 570 S Coupe can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.1 seconds thanks to its twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 engine that develops 562 hp (419 kW) and 443 lb-ft (600 Nm) of torque.

    as detailed as this reads, it sounds as if Mclaren needs lessons from them. I hope someone does a side by side testing of this. I do like the exterior addons, and the performance upgrades sounds substantial.
