The McLaren 570S Coupé will make its public debut in the South of France at the ‘French Riviera Classic’ in Nice, France supported by McLaren Monaco this weekend, 16-18 October. McLaren makes its debut at the event, now in its second year, as it expands beyond classic cars to welcome supercars to the display for the first time in the newly created Prestige area.
Unveiled earlier this year at the New York International Motor Show, the 570S Coupé is the first model to be launched in the Sports Series, establishing the third and final model range for McLaren. The all-new, mid-engine sports car introduces McLaren race-derived technologies to the segment yet with greater focus on everyday usability and refinement. Featuring a highly efficient 3.8-litre twin turbo V8 engine generating 570PS (562bhp), which accelerates from zero to 100 km/h (62mph) in just 3.2 seconds and on to a top speed of 328 km/h (204mph). Prices for the McLaren Sports Series start from €161,250 in France with first customer deliveries scheduled to commence before the end of 2015.
Jon Pollock, Regional Director for Europe at McLaren Automotive explains: ‘Since it was first unveiled earlier this year, the 570S Coupe has received widespread praise by media, customers and fans, and we are delighted to present it for the first time in the South of France at the French Riviera Classic. With modern sports and supercars now eligible for the event, it is a fantastic opportunity for the public to view the latest addition to the McLaren range alongside some true classics from the automotive world.’
The French Riviera Classic takes place at the Stadium Allianz Riviera in Nice, and works for the promotion and safeguarding of French motoring heritage.
