This is the McLaren 570S Track Pack

Slightly more hardcore 570S gets more carbon and more downforce

News from deepest Woking: McLaren is doing a Track Pack for the 570S. The cost is £16,500 – or about 1.8 Volkswagen Ups – on top of the standard car’s £143,250 asking price.

And for that you get much loveliness. No more power – take it from us, the 570 is amply quick as it stands – but a fraction less weight and some more downforce. 

McLaren has stripped 25kg out of the 570S. All the interior leather has been replaced with Alcantara, and you get carbon seats and a new set of lightweight alloys. Downforce, meanwhile, is up by 29kg at 150mph thanks to a subtly reprofiled rear-wing that sits 12mm higher. You also get McLaren’s telemetry system, as found on the 675LT and P1, a “Dark Palladium” contrast roof and a “stealth-finish” sports exhaust. 

This is no GT3 RS rival. It’s not hardcore enough – but it is closer. McLaren says it’s for owners “who enjoy occasional trackday activity without compromising the car’s all-round usability”, so you still get carpets, air-con and a stereo. 

Orders are being taken now, and deliveries commence in early 2017. Will you be adding the Track Pack to your 570S order?
