British manufacturer of luxury high-performance sports and super cars, and stable mate of the McLaren F1 team, McLaren Automotive, has revealed its latest model to the Chinese market.

Following its world premiere at the Geneva International Motor Show last month, the McLaren 570GT has debuted in Asia at the 2016 Beijing International Automobile Exhibition.

The latest model was unveiled by McLaren Automotive Chief Executive Officer Mike Flewitt, alongside a specially commissioned example of the Sports Series with a 570S Coupe by McLaren Special Operations (MSO).

The 570GT is fitted with the McLaren-developed 3.8-litre twin turbo V8 M838TE engine which debuted in the 570S Coupé. Power and torque remain at 562 brake horsepower and that power is delivered to the rear wheels via a seven-speed seamless-shift transmission with adjustment through Normal, Sport and Track settings to produce one of the most rewarding and engaging driving experiences in the sports car class.

Chinese Market Significant 

A standard fixed glass Panoramic Roof provides a bright, open cabin running through to the large rear glass hatch creating the most luxurious and relaxing McLaren driving environment. 

As seen on the other models in the Sports Series, levels of craftsmanship throughout the interior of the 570GT are of the highest level, upholstered and specified with quality materials and the latest technologies throughout.

«The Chinese market is very important for McLaren, we are on target to double our 2015 sales this year, and aim to double that number again by 2022. That would mean China represents nearly 15 percent of the global sales volume,» said Flewitt.
