New Track Pack Puts McLaren 570S Spider in Pole Position for Circuit Performance

29 Mar 2018

  • McLaren 570S Spider: a convertible without compromise and dynamic equal of 570S Coupé
  • Track Pack specification brings together the most desirable lightweight options for 570S Spider purchasers wanting to enjoy their new McLaren on circuits
  • Follows success of 570S Coupé Track Pack, which accounts for more than 10% of Coupé sales
  • Options package includes Carbon Fibre Race Seats, Carbon Black Alcantara® steering wheel, Carbon Fibre Interior Upgrade and choice from six By McLaren Designer Interior Sport Design themes
  • Sports Exhaust, Super-Lightweight 10-Spoke Forged Alloy Wheels in Stealth Finish and McLaren Track Telemetry (MTT) are ideally suited to circuit driving
  • Now available to order at McLaren retailers

McLaren 570S Spider buyers can now take advantage of a new options package that brings together a range of practical and visual features suited to circuit use in one pack. The 570S Spider Track Pack, which can now be specified on new vehicle orders, is designed to deliver enhanced levels of driver engagement for owners interested in occasional track days, while still maintaining the daily usability of the McLaren Sports Series convertible.

In addition to reducing vehicle weight – in total by more than 74.2lbs over the standard 570S Spider – the Track Pack brings a louder, more sporting exhaust note and further sharpens the appearance of the striking Spider.

“The 570S Spider has already gained a reputation as an extremely accomplished luxury sports car that is hugely enjoyable to drive on a circuit,” explained Jolyon Nash, Executive Director, Global Sales and Marketing, McLaren Automotive. “This new Track Pack brings together, in one package, design features, specification and popular practical options desirable for track use, further increasing choice for Spider buyers and at the same time offering them even better value.”

The cockpit of a Track Pack car will benefit from one of six By McLaren Designer Interior Sport Design themes in Alcantara® and Nappa Leather, chosen by the buyer. Carbon Fibre Race Seats – which alone deliver a 28.7lbs saving over the standard Sports Seats – and a Carbon Black Alcantara Steering Wheel put the driver in the mood for track action, the results of which can be captured using the factory-fitted McLaren Track Telemetry (MTT) system that provides lap times and sector splits as well as post-drive analysis and data-logging with graphical plots of vehicle speed and time deltas.

Track Pack specification further includes a Carbon Fibre Interior Upgrade that sees door inserts, tunnel sides, extended gearshift paddles, steering wheel spokes, door and lower center console switch packs and the McLaren IRIS infotainment surround finished in the lightweight material.

Exterior features are a Dark Palladium Roof and Super-Lightweight 10-Spoke Forged Alloy Wheels in Stealth Finish, shod as standard with Pirelli P-ZERO Corsa tires and reducing weight by a total of 33.7lbs compared to the standard wheel. Other options in carbon fiber are available if further weight reduction is desired. A Sports Exhaust with Stealth Exhaust Finisher, which is both lighter and louder than a standard Sports Series system, completes the Track Pack.

Introduced in July 2017, the McLaren 570S Spider is now the most popular choice for McLaren Sports Series buyers. Powered by a 3.8-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 engine producing up to 562 horsepower, the Spider is the lightest car in its class with the highest power-to-weight ratio and has already established a reputation for dynamic excellence. The higher rear spoiler first seen on the highly desirable 570S Coupé Track Pack model – which accounts for more than one in ten of 570S Coupé sales – is standard on the 570S Spider, generating additional downforce to further enhance aerodynamic balance at the faster speeds enjoyed on a circuit and contributing to the Spider’s acknowledged status as the dynamic equal of the Coupé.

The 570S Spider Track Pack is a $24,620 option at time of vehicle order. For more information about the McLaren 570S Spider and other McLaren models, please go to: cars.mclaren.com.

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.
