Ahead of the New York Auto Show and following a lenghty teaser campaign, McLaren has unveiled its first model in the Sports Series family.

The McLaren 570S Coupe shares its DNA with the McLaren Super Series and Ultimate Series that sit above it in the range hierarchy. The entry-level Sports Series introduces McLaren to a new segment and audience that would otherwise most likely purchase a Porsche.

The performance of the 570S Coupe is expected to be at least on par with its competitors. It combines a power output of 562 hp (570 PS) with light weight construction to give a class leading power-to-weight ratio of 430 hp per tone.

The 2016 McLaren 570S accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 3.1 seconds, while 124 mph is reached in just 9.5 seconds with the pace not letting up till the car reaches a top speed of 204 mph (328 km/h).

570S Coupe: Latest Evolution of McLaren Design

The 2016 570S Coupe is the first bodystyle to be shown in the Sports Series, highlighting the latest evolution of the McLaren design philosophy. According to McLaren, the 570S Coupe's unique and striking appearance has been designed by air, with a bespoke aerodynamic package including aero blades below the front bumper giving a purposeful stance while channeling clean, cold air through the lower leading edge of the bodywork. Large ultra bright LED headlamps, fitted as standard to all Sports Series models, flank a sculpted bonnet which channels airflow over the front wheelarches. The intricately designed dihedral doors, a McLaren design signature since the iconic F1, possess a three dimensional form including a 'floating' door tendon which houses a discreet door button. This unique feature divides the airflow, channeling it into the side intakes and underneath the flying buttresses. This architectural structure ensures drag is minimized along the profile of the 570S, while also optimizing levels of cooling and downforce.

Flying buttresses at the rear of the teardrop-shaped glasshouse form part of the aero package, directing air over the shoulderline of the 570S and across the rear deck aiding heat evacuation from the exposed engine bay and increasing downforce.

The rear of the car is clean and uncluttered, with LED light blade rear lamps which follow the form of the sculpted panels. The rear of the vehicle features an aluminum mesh allowing effective heat evacuation as well as a view into the engine bay. This sits below a concave rear window, another signature Sports Series Coupe design cue. The twin exhausts exit below the rear bumper, either side of a newly designed and highly intricate rear diffuser.
