Following its unveil at the New York International Auto Show earlier this year, and a highly successful global tour, the 570S Coupé will take to the Goodwood Hill course throughout the Festival weekend. Fitted with a 3.8-litre twin turbo V8 engine, producing 570PS (562bhp), the 570S Coupé joins the McLaren model line-up as the most powerful model in the recently launched Sports Series, and introduces McLaren DNA and supercar performance to the sports car segment. The lightweight and purposeful model will make its global dynamic debut ahead of first customer deliveries beginning later this year. It can also be seen on the stage at McLaren House.
Completing the dynamic display will be the McLaren 650S GT3, which was unveiled at the Festival of Speed last year. The 650S GT3 has enjoyed success globally in its competitive debut season, already securing podium finishes in five championships at circuits across North America and Europe with McLaren GT customer teams.
McLaren House will host a range of models prepared by McLaren Special Operations (MSO) to celebrate the ‘Flatout and Fearless’ theme, each highlighting a ‘moment’ from throughout the history of McLaren and the legendary drivers who have driven for the team over the years.
Visitors will also be invited to be photographed behind the wheel of a McLaren 650S Spider in return for a donation of £2 to the halow project (www.halowproject.org.uk), the selected beneficiary of the 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
