This Special McLaren 570S M2B Edition Pays Tribute to McLaren’s F1 Debut
The 1966 Monaco Grand Prix saw the Formula 1 debut of McLaren, a memorable event that took place exactly 50 years ago. As such, the British supercar maker has decided to honor its original race car with a very special edition of the McLaren 570S, dubbed as the 570S M2B.
Built to commemorate McLaren’s first F1 car, the M2B F1, created by Bruce McLaren himself, this special vehicle was unveiled right at the 2016 Monaco Grand Prix. We’m sure you’ve already noticed the unique paint-job of this beauty, mixing pure white with a central green stripe and silver edging, just like McLaren’s first race car but.. what else is new?
Aside from that, we’re dealing with the standard McLaren 570S, powered by the same 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine which is able to produce an impressive 570 PS (562 HP) and 600 Nm (443 lb-ft – that helps it do 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.2 seconds and max out at 328 km/h (204 mph).
It’s also worth mentioning that the supercar comes equipped with Brake Steer technology, carbon ceramic brakes and the carbon fiber MonoCell II. This special McLaren 570S also benefits from double-wishbone suspension all around, with adjustable dampers, as well as three driving modes: Normal, Sport and Track. We don’t know about you, but we were kind of hoping for more.
