The McLaren Sports Series is the British carmaker’s entry into the sports car segment and with the introduction of both the 570S at this year’s New York Auto Show, and the 540C at Auto Shanghai, we say they’ve off to a flying start in their new venture.
To further reinforce the notion that the Sports Series cars are as good as you think they are, McLaren has released this amazing video that show the extreme conditions the cars are made to endure as part of their development.
From the extreme cold of a European winter to the hot desert sun, and a range of other demanding conditions, the McLaren’s Sport Series are pushed to the absolute limit so that they can perform in any given condition.
As we’ve mentioned earlier, two variants have been revealed so far, both adopting the M838TE 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 engine which is mated to a seven-speed SSG transmission. On the 570S, power output is rated at 562hp and 600Nm of torque while the 540C makes do with 533hp and 540Nm of torque.
