Video: McLaren 570S prototypes being tested to the limits

Following on from the official unveiling of the McLaren 570S, a video showing McLaren test drivers giving two prototype test mules the full beans has hit the ‘Tube to give us a glimpse not only into how it sounds, but how it performs… on snow and tarmac.

The 570S becomes part of the Super Series family, and uses the same M838TE 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 found in all of McLaren’s other current models. The 570S’s engine features a bespoke tune, punching out 419kW and 600Nm.

Performance-wise, McLaren says the 570S can shoot from 0-100km/h in 3.2 seconds, 0-200km/h in 9.5 seconds, and can run on to an eye-watering top speed of 328km/h.

The McLaren 570S is set to land on Australian shores some time later in the year. Pricing and local specifications are yet to be announced. Click play below for a demo.
