As part of McLaren’s largest Goodwood Festival of Speed presence to date, the 570S Sprint will grace the hillclimb event and exhibition alongside stablemates such as the P1 GTR, 650S Can-Am, 570S Coupe and the 675LT Coupe.

Touted as the most track-focused model in the Sports Series line up, the 570S Sprint based upon the 570S Coupe, though it is intended for use on track without the restrictions of any race series, compared with the 570S GT4 which is a race car developed to comply with GT4 racing regulations.

Like all Sports Series models, the 570S Sprint is built around McLaren’s MonoCell II carbon fibre monocoque chassis, powered by a Ricardo-built 3.8 litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine mated to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission.

For enchanced performance during track use, the 570S Sprint is equipped with a front-centre mounted high-temperature radiator plus a more aggressive front splitter and floor assembly as deployed previously on the 570S GT4. Aero upgrades including front dive planes and a fixed, carbon fibre rear wing bring the highest levels of downforce on on Sports Series model, McLaren claims.

As standard, the car is fitted with centre-locking cast magnesium wheels and Pirelli racing slick tyres, while the double wishbones and anti-roll bars front and rear are shared with the road-going 570S Coupe.

Inside, an FIA-approved rollcage complements the the flat-back seat (passenger seat is optional) with matching six-point racing harness, along with a standard-fit fire extinguisher system; an optional airjacking system can also be specified to aid wheel changes.

With its similarities with the 570S GT4, the 570S Sprint can be upgraded with a GT4 compliance pack if its owner desires to take part in GT4-class racing. The package includes all items required to meet FIA standards for GT4 competition, and is currently in its final testing stages in the British GT Championship.

Finished in McLaren Orange as standard, the 570S Sprint can be specified with any colour in the Sports Series palette. Deliveries of the 570S Sprint commence next year, with prices starting from £148,000 (RM879,870) before local market duties.
