McLaren Brussels has chosen the 96th Edition of the Brussels Motor Show to showcase the McLaren 570S Spider and e McLaren 720S, the most recently launched McLaren road cars . This the first appearance for the two cars at the Brussels Motor Show, which is open to the public from January 10 to the 21.
The new two-seat, 570S Spider, on display in Sicilian Yellow – one of three new exterior colours introduced for the launch of the car – is the third body style in McLaren’s Sports Series product family, lining up alongside the 570S Coupé and the 570GT. Combining the dynamic thrills and refinement of the 570S Coupé with the extra exhilaration of open-air driving, the 570S Spider, which is hand-assembled in Woking, England, brings supercar attributes such as carbon-fibre construction, a mid-engined layout and extreme performance to the luxury sports convertible segment for the first time. The starting price for the McLaren 570S Spider in Belgium is €212.425 (incl. 21% VAT).
The McLaren 720S, which was introduced in 2017, is the first of 15 new McLaren models and/or derivatives that will be launched by the end of 2022 under the company’s Track22 business plan. A blend of extreme power, handcrafted luxury of the highest quality and unmatched driver involvement, the McLaren 720S is lighter, faster and even more dynamic than the McLaren 650S that it succeeded. Powered by a 4.0-litre, twin-turbocharged V8 engine producing 720PS, the second-generation Super Series McLaren can accelerate from 0-100km/h in only 2.9 seconds, sprint from standstill to 200km/h in 7.8 seconds and has a top speed of 341km/h. In Belgium, the starting price for the McLaren 720S is €251.285 (incl. 21% VAT).
Alongside the cars on the McLaren stand will be a special edition, S-Works McLaren Roubaix bicycle, developed by Specialized and McLaren to celebrate the latter’s 50 years of Grand Prix racing. The frame and the forks are made of McLaren’s signature carbon-fibre material and painted in the special ‘heritage colour, “Papaya Orange”, the hue that identified McLaren race cars in the 1960s.
Additionally, McLaren Brussels is confirming at the Show that it will offer free maintenance service as per the McLaren maintenance schedule for the first 3 years or 45,000 km, on all newly ordered Sports Series models.

About McLaren Automotive:
McLaren Automotive is a creator of luxury, high-performance sportscars and supercars.
The company, launched in 2010, is now the largest part of the McLaren Group.
Every vehicle is hand-assembled at the McLaren Production Centre (MPC) in Woking, Surrey, England.
The company has three defined product families: Sports Series, Super Series and Ultimate Series which are retailed through over 80 retailers in 30 markets around the world.
McLaren is a pioneer that continuously pushes the boundaries. In 1981, it introduced lightweight and strong carbon fibre chassis into Formula 1 with the McLaren MP4/1. Then in 1993 it designed and built the McLaren F1 road car - the company has not built a car without a carbon fibre chassis since. As part of the Ultimate Series, McLaren was the first to deliver a hybrid hypercar, the McLaren P1™.
Announced in 2016, the company’s Track22 business plan will see the company invest £1billion in research and development to deliver 15 new cars or derivatives by the end of 2022, of which at least half will be hybrids.
2017 saw the company launch further models in line with Track22 including the second-generation Super Series, the 570S Spider and the McLaren Senna.
To support the development, engineering and manufacture of its range of innovative sportscars and supercars, McLaren Automotive partners with world leading companies to provide specialist expertise and technology. These include AkzoNobel, Kenwood, Pirelli and Richard Mille.
The McLaren Group is a global leader in luxury high performance and technology and comprises three principal businesses: Automotive, Racing and Applied Technologies.
