McLaren has revealed that they are going to unveil a new sportscar, called 540C, at the Auto Shanghai 2015 in the last week of this month. This new model will sit below the 570S Coupe and will be the new entry-level model in the British manufacturer’s line-up.
The 540C will be the second model in McLaren’s ‘Sports Series’ line-up and will be powered by a detuned version of the 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine. This engine produces 533bhp and 540Nm of torque and comes mated to a seven-speed dual clutch SSG gearbox.
While other finer details are still unknown, the McLaren 540C is expected to be priced around the GBP 1,26,000 (Rs 1.1 crore) mark. This means that it will rival other two-seater sportscars like the Porsche 911 and the Audi R8. Expect further details to be revealed as we get closer to the launch date of the car.
