McLaren 570GT Sport Pack brings performance upgrades to firm's most practical supercar

McLaren Elevates the 570GT with Sport Pack and Design Editions

McLaren 570 GT S Handling Pack makes the PERFECT 570

McLaren's "luxury" Sports Series auto - can now be had with the Sport Handling pack, essentially combining the best of the 570 S and 570GT.

McLaren has introduced upgrades to its Sports Series for 2018 that focus mainly on the 570GT and make this usually more comfortable vehicle a bit sharper.

McLaren say they expect some 60 per cent of 570GT buyers to opt for the new Handling Pack, and we'd expect the 20 per cent of buyers who now opt for the 570S to shrink to nearly nothing.

The Sport Pack essentially turns the 570GT into a 570S with greater livability.

The Sport Pack gives the vehicle the same steering rack, damper actuators and uprights used in the Coupe and Spider.

Buyers will also get a host of new additions that are part of the 570GT's 2018 model, including carbon ceramic brakes, as standard. Additionally, the Sport Pack adds Pirelli P-Zero Corsa rubber all round. On the hottest of days or sunniest of mornings, the new panoramic roof option uses an electric current to change the opacity of the glass.

The new 570GT Design Editions are: Silica White exterior with Saddle Tan and Carbon Black interior; Pacific Blue with Jet Black and Areia (cream); Blade Silver with Natural Tan and Carbon Black; Fire Black with Jet Black and Areia; and Storm Grey with Jet Black and Almond White. That package lets the 570GT get the same options as the 570S Coupe and Spider.

Along with the extra kit come higher prices across the range, except for the 570S Spider that remains unchanged at $435,750 plus on-road costs.

The final major change is for the 570S Coupe.

McLaren has also confirmed a number of exterior and interior trim options dubbed Design Editions for the 570GT. The 570S starts at $192,500 and the Spider rings in at $208,800.
