The McLaren 570 moniker is synonymous with high-level driving excitement, world-class performance, and innovative and breathtaking design. McLaren offers two primary variants of the 570, with the 570S (Coupe and Spider convertible models) and the 570GT, which comes in just a coupe model. Here at McLaren Chicago, we highlight the differences between the two 570 variants in this 2019 McLaren 570S vs 2019 McLaren 570GT comparison.
The 570S was built to provide a racetrack-level driving experience, while the 570GT offers a higher level of comfort and practicality. The 570GT has a larger cargo bay, with a maximum cargo capacity of 13.1 cu-ft, compared to 5.3 cu-ft for the 570S. The 570GT offers Nappa leather and a “floating” center console in the cockpit. Also, buyers of the 570GT can upgrade with a Lift Kit, which slightly raises the supercar’s nose for additional ground clearance. This is useful to have when encountering speed bumps.
Compare the 2019 McLaren 570S and 2019 McLaren 570GT
Both the 570S and 570GT are powered by a robust 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged engine, which churns out 562 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque. However, the 570S has quicker acceleration and shorter stopping distances. This is partially due to its lightweight design, with a curb weight of 3,201 pounds, compared to 3,303 pounds for the 570GT.
The 570S delivers a 0 – 100 kph (0 – 62 mph) time of just 3.4 seconds, compared to 3.2 seconds for the 570GT. The 570S achieves the 0 – 200 kph (0 – 124 mph) sprint in only 9.5 seconds, compared to 9.8 seconds for the 570GT. The 100 – 0 kph (62 – 0 mph) braking distance of the 570S is 102 feet, compared to 108 feet for the 570GT. The 200 – 0 kph (124 – 0 mph) braking distance of the 570S is 413 feet, compared to 436 feet for the 570GT.
