2016 THE BLACK SWAN SPORTS CAR
Black swans represent a metaphor for the seemingly impossible. Following their discovery in Western Australia in 1697, they came to symbolize events that challenged perceived wisdom and reshaped the world.
The McLaren Sports Series is the black swan movement for the sports car, with its unique combination of high performance, outstanding luxury and race derived technical innovation. No other competitor offers lightweight and strong carbon fiber chassis construction, incredibly striking dihedral doors or as much horsepower in a sports car weighing so little. And no other sports car is as exciting to drive.
It’s dramatic, futuristic design is as eye-catching as it is functional. The distinctive nose is inspired by McLaren Formula 1 race cars, shrink-wrapped dihedral doors are intricately contoured to channel cool air to the engine bay, and ‘flying buttress’ rear pillars create an athletic silhouette, while increasing downforce for reassuring handling.
Inside, the luxurious cabin features hand-crafted leather, a Bowers & Wilkins stereo system, excellent visibility and exceptionally comfortable adjustable sports seats. An intuitive seven-inch central touchscreen infotainment system includes satellite navigation, Bluetooth audio streaming, WIFI tethering and voice activation as standard specification.
The McLaren designed 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine with amazing performance, incredible response and outstanding refinement is the beating heart of the Sports Series. Positioned behind the driver and sending power to the rear wheels alone to offer the same impeccable agility as our racing cars, this powerful engine is complemented by a state-of-the-art seamless-shift gearbox for ultra-fast, ultra-smooth gearshifts.
Key to the usability of the Sports Series is its versatility: Adaptive suspension can switch from limousine-like comfort to race car composer at the press of a button; the interior is spacious, the generous luggage compartment capable of holding up to 144 litres; even the servicing schedule offers maximum convenience with 10,000-mile or annual intervals.
Never before has such an exhilarating sports car been so easy to live with. A winner.
