It’s the ultimate sports car experience. Completely driver-centric and performance oriented, the 540C coupe is equally at home on the track as it is on the open road. Being light weight with a high power to weight ratio, it delivers a super car punch that would shame many more expensive rivals.
One of the many McLaren technologies the Sports Series shares with its Formula 1™ and supercar cousins is carbon fibre construction. The MonoCell II is a strong, rigid chassis that weighs less than 80 kg and provides exceptional crash protection and outstanding dynamics. This lightweight construction coupled with the potent mid-mounted V8 provide the best power-to-weight ratio of any sports car in its class.
Even if you take for granted 0-124mph in a scarcely believable 10.5 seconds, nothing prepares you for the thrill of the 540C Coupe’s race-bred dynamics. With a chassis honed to create an unrivalled balance, the Sports Series is as at home in the city as it is on the limits of the racetrack.
Practicality is not a word normally associated with a top end sports car. But the McLaren Sports Series 540C offers everyday convenience in the ergonomically designed interior. Smart stowage areas offer carriage for necessary items, while a generous luggage capacity ensures that you can take everything for that weekend getaway.
