NOT long after showing off the 570S, McLaren now unveils its most latest 'most affordable' model - the 540C Coupé.
Revealed at the Shanghai motor show, it is smaller than the 570S and probably €40,000 cheaper at €160,000 or so. That pits McLaren near the Audi A8 and Porsche 911.
Powering the 540C is the mid-mounted 533bhp 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 engine (29bhp less than the 570S).
It is rear-wheel driven and there's a 7spd dual-clutch automatic gearbox. It can do 0-100kmh in 3.5seconds. Top speed is 320kmh.
