McLaren Automotive, the British luxury brand rooted in rich motorsport heritage, recently brought the all-new McLaren 570S to Jakarta for an exclusive glimpse for selected VIP guests. The first and most powerful model in the highly anticipated Sports Series, the McLaren 570S has truly brought Formula 1 technology to the sports car segment for the very first time.
Sharing its DNA with the performance-focused McLaren Super Series and the globally acclaimed Ultimate Series, the Sports Series brings McLaren race-derived technologies and supercar driving exhilaration to an entirely new range of driving enthusiasts.
The McLaren 570S will offer the most rewarding and engaging experience with a driver-optimised layout and class-leading performance. At the same time, the interior is more tailored around day-to-day usability, greater levels of stowage space and even more refinement.
“The ‘Sports Series’ marks an exciting milestone for the McLaren brand as it is the very first time we are competing in a new segment, beyond the supercar market,” said Head of Sales & Operations for McLaren Asia Pacific Mr George Biggs.
“The game has been changed for the Sports Series because from engineering to design to positioning, every aspect of the series has been crafted with the intention to go faster and push harder, elevating the sports car driving experience to new heights and redefining what is possible in the segment,” he added.
Mr Irmawan Poedjoadi, Chief Executive Officer of McLaren Jakarta, added, “As the ‘Sports Series’ allows more drivers to experience the thrills of McLaren ownership, we are very excited to be bringing this exhilarating and high-performance driving experience to a new audience across Indonesia.
“We are seeing a lot of interest in the McLaren 570S as an accessible sports car perfect for everyday driving that still delivers the exclusive McLaren experience,” he said.
The mid-engine McLaren 570S features a lightweight carbon-fibre MonoCell II chassis, with a highly efficient 3.8-litre twin turbo V8 engine generating 562bhp and 600Nm of torque, with 30 per cent of components bespoke to the new model.
While it has a greater focus on day-to-day usability and refinement, the car is very much a pure McLaren, boasting a power-to-weight ratio of 434PS per tonne and electrifying performance. Accelerating from 0 to 100kph in just 3.2 seconds, the McLaren 570S reaches 200kph in 9.5 seconds and races to a thrilling top speed of 328kph.
Customers can order the McLaren 570S at any time during this time, with prices starting at US$ 530,000 (Rp 7 billion), with the price based on the exchange rate of GBP to IDR as of April 15, 2016.
