If my memory serves me correct, McLaren made the announcement that it'd be showing the all-new Sport Series at the 2015 New York Auto Show (NYIAS) during the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.

An interesting move, but as I've hinted at with other auto manufacturers, it's a telling one.

With a large U.S.-based network of dealers, expect to see the entry-level McLaren pop up more often than the likes of the MP4-12C, 650S and P1 supercars. According to McLaren's executives, the Sport Series is expected to more than double the company's production figures.

Although it was originally expected to price along the likes of the Porsche 911 Carrera S, it sounds like it will be more likely to go up against the likes of the Ferrari California T at approximately $200,000.

Also another rumor popped up. According to Autocar the car may be designated the 570S, which would indicate power output in that neighborhood. In addition, there's word on the street that a slightly less powerful variant will make its way to the Chinese market and a more hardcore version will be produced for customers looking for a more track-going experience. All of this follows the 650S' playbook.

More importantly, you'll note that there's an all-new series of spy shots. As you can see, the vehicle looks quite a bit more like the P1 rather than the 675LT it's running alongside of. In addition, I think it may be a touch smaller as well. Considering the 650S/675LT aren't exactly HUGE autos, we're assuming this would set up the Sport Series to be pretty damn light.

Stay tuned to for the latest and greatest news surrounding the McLaren Sport Series.
We'll be at the company's event on March 30 to learn more about this all-new, exciting product!

Reports from McLaren customer forums have already implied the New York car has been dubbed 570S. If that's true, and if the car's name follows McLaren convention in referring to its power output in PS, the 570S should get around 560bhp from its 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine...
