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.
CARBON FIBRE CONSTRUCTION
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.
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.
