At the 2015 New York Auto Show the 2016 McLaren 570S was introduced. With a lot of interior and exterior changes, the new McLaren looks pretty good.
McLaren 570S Exterior design
When the 650S came out, its front fascia was inspired by the P1. Since then, it was obvious, that the Sports Series, including this model will receive the hypercar’s front end. So, the look of the new McLaren is impressive with ’’designed by air“ fascia, big LED headlights, rounded nose and striking aero blades below the front bumper.
McLaren’s famous dihedral doors are also part of the 570S with ’’floating tendon“ that splits the airflow and sends it into the side intakes and underneath the flying buttresses.
Around back, we can see the uniqueness of the 570S. The flying buttresses and the teardrop-shaped rear glass are helping to channel air across the rear desk. As the result, the heat evacuation is improved and downforce is increased. The apron has a totally new design, while the taillights are large compared to the rear fascia. For better aerodynamics, the exhaust pipes are flanking the intricate diffuser which uses eight or more vertical blades.

The cabin of the 570S’ is designed with focus on visibility and functionality. Two most important features are enhanced roominess and improved day-to-day usability. According to the company, thanks to the inteligent and ergonomic design, this model has the most usable space of any McLaren. The 570S has a full infotainment system. Also, there is the newly designed digital instrument cluster. Some other tech features are seven – inch touchscreen with integrated climate control, DAB digital or Sirius satellite radio and Bluetooth connectivity.
To be a true rival to the 911, the company has put some premium features inside of the 570S like leather – covered seats, and leather – trimmed steering wheel and dashboard as standard.
This model has extensive options list for further customization like wide range of Alcantara, Nappa leather and carbon – fiber selections. The standard seats, also, can be replaced for racing units if that’s the customers wish.

The model is using a seven – speed, dual – clutch transmission and through it the power is transferred to the rear wheels. The 570S uses 570 PS and it can convert to 562 hp at 7,400 rpm and 443 pound – feet of torque from 5,000 rpm.
