Just weeks after the announcement of the 570S, McLaren announces another new entry in the Sports Series line, the 540C. Visually, there isn't much of a difference between the two cars, though the company is selling this model as the most attainable McLaren yet. The car will feature the same mid-engined 3.8L twin-turbo V8 that powers its higher-end sibling with a few key differences. 

The differences begin inside the car as McLaren has tweaked the damper to create a more comfortable daily driver and subtle changes to the aerodynamics are also evident as well as an exclusive cast alloy wheel design. It will also be just a tad slower than the 570 with a 0-62 time of 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 199 mph vs the 570's 204 mph. 

Pricing will start at £126,000 (US pricing TBD), more info at
