McLaren 570S Sprint first view

McLaren's 570S Sprint has been unveiled at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Production of this new model – which is intended for circuit use only – will begin next year.

Numerous modifications distinguish the Sprint from a regular 570S, with the most obvious being a prominent fixed rear wing. Made from carbon fibre, it works with dive planes and a larger splitter at the front end to provide extra aerodynamic downforce.

Mechanical grip hasn't been ignored either, because slick racing tyres are fitted to lightweight centre-locking cast magnesium wheels.

Inside, the stripped out cabin features a six-point harness, a fire extinguisher and an FIA-approved roll cage. As an indication of the Sprint's designated role, a passenger seat is relegated to the options list.

While the 3.8 litre twin-turbo V8 engine and seven-speed sequential transmission are largely unchanged, enhanced cooling comes courtesy of a competition-inspired, high-temperature radiator.

Outputs haven't been disclosed, but according to McLaren, “Power and torque levels have been optimised to ensure the ultimate levels of driver engagement and the best levels of noise.”

As the 570S Sprint is primarily aimed at people who enjoy track days, it doesn't conform with any particular set of motorsport regulations. However, a package is going to be available for customers who want to upgrade their cars to FIA GT4 specification.

UK pricing starts from £148,000.
