McLaren Automotive is returning to Monterey Car Week with the U.S. debuts of the McLaren 570GT road car and the 570S GT4 race car. Over the course of Monterey week, McLaren will introduce the US to the 2017 570GT with several examples of the car to be found around the peninsula. The car will make an appearance at McCall’s Motorworks Revival before making an appearance at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance on Sunday.

The new McLaren 570S GT4 is the latest McLaren race car and it already has one race win to its name. The 570S GT4 is currently completing the final development stages in real-world race environments in Europe and is eligible for all GT4 competition globally with customer teams for the 2017 season.

Also during the weeks activities McLaren Automotive will host The McLaren Driver Experience at the Quail. The Experience will house an array of iconic heritage race cars. The heritage cars include:
M2B/1– 1966 – Formula 1, the very first McLaren Formula 1 Grand Prix car.
M8D/4 – 1970 – Can-Am Championship, an evolution of the Can-Am Championship-winning M8B that won all 11 races through the previous season, crowning Bruce McLaren as Champion for the second time and completing a clean sweep of three successive Can-Am Constructors Championships.
M23A/9 – 1975 – Formula 1, the car that led Emerson Fittipaldi to his second Formula 1 Drivers’ Championship and gave McLaren its first Constructors Championship.
MP4-2/2 – 1984 – Formula 1, which won three Drivers Championships and two Constructors Championships and is still considered the most successful chassis in Formula 1 history.

At the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance on Sunday, August 21, McLaren Special Operations will also reveal a unique project on the concept lawn.
