McLaren 570S - early 2016

The McLaren 570S will make its Australian debut in the early part of 2016, with a $408,000 drive-away price tag.

For the money, buyers will be treated to a 420kW/600Nm 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 matched to a seven-speed semi-automatic gearbox - a combination that promises a 0-100km/h time of 3.2 seconds.

The best part to that list, of course, is that the 570S coupe’s acceleration makes it a match for the legendary McLaren F1.

Arriving below the 570S, the debut of the $350,000 540C shaves around $110,000 off the price of entry into the McLaren range.

The 540C gets the same engine that drives the 570S, with outputs detuned to 397kW and 540Nm.

The new entry model’s performance is still impressive, however, with a 0-100km/h time of 3.5 seconds making it only slightly short of the 570S’s time.

Global deliveries of the topless 675LT Spider will begin in the third quarter of 2016, and while an Australian debut is confirmed, local pricing won't be confirmed until closer to launch.

McLaren says the 675LT Spider is the "most focused, fastest and exhilarating open top McLaren model ever built", with power provided by a 497kW/700Nm 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8.

That setup claims a 0-100km/h time of 2.9 seconds, and a very swift 0-200km/h sprint of just 8.1 seconds. Quicker than most passenger cars will get to 100km/h.
