The 2016 edition of the renowned Goodwood Festival of Speed is already bringing the world a couple of exciting premieres, such as the official debut of the McLaren 570S Sprint. Based on the McLaren 570S Coupe, the Sprint version represents a hardcore superlative, that’s perfect for a quick spin around the track.

This new McLaren supercar is powered by the same 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine which powers the 570S Coupe as well, that’s mated to a 7-speed SSG transmission. We don’t know if there are any improvements to this engine, but the performance numbers of this supercar should still blow you away – although there are no official statements, yet.

Let’s just go ahead and assume that we’re dealing with the same output as the road-legal 570S, which is exactly 570 PS (562 HP) and 600 Nm (443 lb-ft) of torque.

At the heart of this McLaren sits the carbon fiber MonoCell II chassis, which features enhanced cooling through a front center GT3-inspired high-temp radiator. The 570S Sprint also comes with a more aggressive front splitter and a redesigned front bumper, while the carbon fiber front dive planes and the large fixed rear wing will make sure speed is not an issue when you’re challenging a corner.

The track-oriented 570S Sprint features center-locking wheels, covered in Pirelli racing rubber, as well as the double wishbone set up of the road car. On the inside, everything’s been stripped out, with only an FIA-approved roll-cage, a sport seat with a six-point racing harness, and a fire extinguisher system remaining.

Pricing starts off at £148,000 ($217,330) in the UK, but you’ll have to wait for 2017 to enjoy your new McLaren track-toy.
