McLaren unveil all-new 540C

Author: Christian Storm     Date: 20-04-2015

McLaren have unveiled an all-new show stopping super-car which is set to be the most affordable vehicle offered by the high performance manufacturer.

The covers were pulled off at the annual Shanghai Motor Show and the vehicle is set to be priced at £126k. A figure that is likely to make the average motorist balk but when stacked up against the firms other vehicles and competitors the Porsche 911 Turbo and Audi R8 V10 actually appears very reasonable.

 

That price tag is made to seem even more of a bargain when you take a look at the amount of equipment the vehicle is equipped with and the amazing statistics it possesses. The vehicle has a fearsome 533bhp and does 0-62mph in a jaw-dropping 3.5 seconds. Pushing the 540C even further to 124mph takes just 10.5 seconds with top-speeds touted at 199mph.

The 540C essentially undercuts the all-new 570S which was revealed earlier this year at the New York Motor Show and will be the latest addition to the prestigious ‘Sports Series’.

In terms of styling, the vehicle’s smooth yet fearsome exterior design is very in-keeping with the design of many other McLaren vehicles and in fact will rest on an identical chassis to the 570S - it even employs the exact same aluminium panels.

Inside, the focal point will be the 7” touchscreen which will display all manner of features and allow your drive to be exceptionally high-tech. Leather upholstery is also standard with Sat-Nav, DAB radio and Bluetooth also thrown in.

Offering 19-inch alloys at the front and 20-inch at the back the McLaren features blades below the bumper to move air over the bonnet and bodywork to avoid over-heating.  With curling lights not dissimilar to a glowing scythe the 540C will truly stand-out as a high-performance vehicle and its design suggests a larger price tag than is actually required.

The vehicle will be powered via seven-speed dual clutch gearbox and includes rear-wheel-drive config and; Normal, Sport and Track modes – standard in all McLaren vehicles.

McLaren are likely to champion the 540C as a symbol for affordable super-car production and the manufacturer have already described it as ‘’the most attainable McLaren yet’’.
