The British supercar maker seems ready to put the already light 570S on a skinny diet, with the engineers cutting an additional 25 kilograms (55 pounds) of “metal fat”.
Coming out right now, the McLaren 570S can be had with the Track Pack which will replace the 570S’ standard seats with carbon fiber ones with better lateral support. The diet also includes a new set of alloys that conceals carbon-ceramic brakes. Alcantara instead of leather adorns the steering wheel, dashboard and seats to squeeze some extra grams. The coupe from Woking with the Track Pack will tip the scales at 1,319 kg (2,907 lbs), dry. Of course, being nimbler means it will be even faster – 124 mph (200 km/h) are reached in 9.4 seconds, a tenth of a second faster. The top speed, though, has remained unchanged – 204 mph (328 km/h).
The Track Pack also includes a larger rear wing sitting 12 mm higher and able to generate an extra 29 kg (64 lbs) of downforce at 150 mph (241 km/h). It will remain a Track Pack exclusive perk, which also includes a McLaren Special Operations Dark Palladium livery for the roof and a so-called stealth finish for the exhaust tips. The Track Telemetry system is a carryover from the 675LT and the P1 and McLaren wants £16,500 for the optional Track Pack with sales starting early next year.
