  • [NEWS] Here's The 570GT Sport Pack To Confuse You



    We liked the 570S when we drove it a coupe of years back; it was fast, well-built, and comfortable. If you want even more comfort, you could have the 570GT, which was basically the same car but with softer suspension and a compartment on top of the engine for extra practicality, which was nice since you couldn't see the engine anyway on the standard 570S. It's great, you get the S if you want a supercar, and you get the GT if you want a bit more common sense. But what if you want both?





    Well, there's the 570GT Sport Pack now, and it's basically a 570GT with stiffer springs, as well as faster steering and damper software from the more performance-focused 570S. So it's basically a sportier version, of a car that was the detuned version, of the already sporty car. What?

    This is the kind of nonsense and shenanigans that we'd like car makers to stop, but as BMW and Porsche have shown, these weird versions can often make so much sense.



    Anyway, the GT Sport Pack will have stiffer spring, sharper steering, ceramic brakes, and road/track Pirelli P Zero Corsa, along with other software programs from the 570S to make the GT shaper and faster.







    McLaren reckons it will be a big seller, they estimate 60% of GT buyers will opt for the Sport Pack, since the GT already make up 80% of all 570 sales. We also like the idea of having a sharper GT, all that extra compartment space with sharper performance is not a bad idea at all, but then what's the point of the 570S should they have this?
