McLaren has added a new optional sport pack to its 570GT grand tourer in a bid to give the 570’s softer, more comfortable variant the sharpness of the sportier 570S.
The 570GT is designed to be a more “refined” version of the 570S with extra luggage space, softer suspension and slightly less reactive steering, although the British supercar manufacturer said some customers were requesting a blend of GT practicality and S handling characteristics.
As a result, the Sport Pack has been developed, allowing the suspension and steering to be configured to 570S specification. The pack also features the 570S’s Pirelli P-Zero Corsa tyres and comes at a cost of £4,900.
Jolyon Nash, the executive director for global sales and marketing at McLaren, said: “The McLaren Sports Series is already recognised for bringing the excitement and race-derived technology of a supercar to the luxury sports car market. With the new 570GT Sport Pack, we have reacted to market requests for a 570GT with the driving dynamics of the 570S Coupé. This optional handling package gives the same chassis setup as the Coupé, while retaining the luxurious features, luggage space and looks of the 570GT.”
In addition to the new Sport Pack, McLaren is also offering 570GT customers a new electrochromic glass roof with driver-controlled tinting and a range of Design Edition Packs, which see the car painted and upholstered in a McLaren-developed colour scheme.
