NEW McLAREN ‘TRACK PACK’ AVAILABLE FOR 570S– INSPIRED BY RACING SUCCESS
29 Nov 2016
- The ultimate McLaren 570S – for both road and track
- Pack adds Alcantara® upholstered interior, carbon-fiber racing seats, track telemetry app, super-lightweight alloy wheels and a new extended rear wing
- Available to order now
McLaren Automotive has announced its new Track Pack, which will be offered as an option exclusively for the award-winning McLaren 570S. The Track Pack, available to order immediately, is designed to deliver enhanced levels of driver engagement on the race track without compromising the car’s all-round usability and includes a discretely extended rear wing to generate additional downforce.
The Track Pack is inspired by McLaren’s long and illustrious racing history, including recent success in GT3 and GT4 categories. Like the road-going, and sold out, McLaren 675LT, the Track Pack for the McLaren 570S exploits all the benefits of lightweight and aerodynamic downforce to deliver the best track capabilities of any member in the Sports Series family.
Visually, the aerodynamics of the Track Park are enhanced for circuit performance with the inclusion of the 12mm-higher rear wing, which boosts the already high cornering downforce by an additional 29kg at 150mph, enhancing stability in the fastest of corners. This wing is not available on any other McLaren Sports Series derivative. Other Track Pack visual clues include a McLaren Special Operations roof finish in Dark Palladium, and stealth-finish Sports exhaust.
Already the most powerful and lightest car in its class, the McLaren 570S with Track Pack tips the scales at 25kg less than the coupé in standard form. This weight reduction is made possible by a lightweight interior package with Alcantara® replacing leather for the seats, dashboard and steering wheel covering, plus the introduction of carbon-fiber racing seats with circuit-proven lateral location. This delivers the most rewarding cabin environment for the driver to exploit the car’s capabilities to the full – including its acceleration from 0-124mph in 9.4 seconds and 204mph top speed. Further weight reductions come from the Stealth-finish super-lightweight alloy wheels.
In recognition of the increased time the McLaren 570S with Track Pack is likely to spend on circuits, the package includes McLaren’s Track Telemetry system, as also used on the McLaren 675LT and McLaren P1TM. The system provides real-time information, such as lap times, sector splits and comparisons between drivers, as well as post-drive analysis and data-logging with graphical plots of vehicle speed and lap-time deltas.
Track Pack is available to order now, with deliveries beginning in early 2017. The option is priced at $23,660.

About McLaren Automotive:
McLaren Automotive is a British manufacturer of luxury, high-performance sports and super cars, located at the McLaren Technology Centre (MTC) in Woking, Surrey. For the past 30 years, McLaren has pioneered the use of carbon fibre in vehicle production and since introducing a carbon chassis into racing and road cars with the 1981 McLaren MP4/1 and 1993 McLaren F1 respectively, McLaren has not built a car without a carbon fibre chassis.
Following the global launch of McLaren Automotive in 2010, the groundbreaking 12C was revealed in 2011, the 12C Spider in 2012, and the limited-run McLaren P1™ went into production in 2013. In keeping with its plan to introduce a new model each year, the company unveiled the 650S, in Coupé and Spider form in 2014, while 2015 proved to be a year of unprecedented growth of the product portfolio with five new models launched across the full range. The strictly limited edition 675LT Coupé premiered at the Geneva Motor Show alongside the track-only McLaren P1™ GTR which, with 1,000PS, became the most powerful model ever produced by the brand. The much-anticipated Sports Series became the third – and final – model tier in the McLaren range with the 570S Coupé and 540C Coupé debuting in New York and Shanghai respectively, less than one month apart. The end of the year saw the launch of the fifth model, the 675LT Spider, which was as a direct response to customer demand. The year also saw the end of production for the first model in the Ultimate Series as the 375th McLaren P1™ was completed, closing what has become a defining year for the British brand.
