Meet McLaren's newest answer to Ferrari and Lamborghini -- the 570S

McLaren just unveiled its brand new Sports Series.

But don’t be fooled. This isn’t a peppy English roadster from the the hypercar specialists who brought you the legendary F1 and the monstrous P1.

It’s a full-on, 562-horsepower beast of supercar, with the same racebred DNA found in the company’s awesome P1 hypercar and 650s/675LT supercars. The 570S is the first car from the company’s new Sports Series — and it’s mission is to bring in a whole new group of customers.

The car is a big deal for McLaren. Especially as the company looks to sell more cars than the 1,600 it delivered in 2014.

You can see the McLaren 570S at the 2015 New York Auto Show, which opens to the public at the Javits Center on Friday, April 3.

McLaren's all-new 570S is the first in the company's new 'Sports Series.' It will be the smallest and lowest-priced model in McLaren's lineup.

It will sit below McLaren's P1 hypercar and ...

... its 650S and 675LT 'Super Series.'

It will compete with the likes of Audi's R8 ...

... Porsche's 911 Turbo ...

... Ferrari's 458 Italia ....

... and Ferrari's upcoming 488 GTB, as well as ...

... Lamborghini's menacing Huracan.

Although the McLaren 570S is expected to be priced around $180,000 to $200,000, it won't be much slower than its more costly siblings.

Expect the 570S to do 0-60 mph in just 3.2 seconds and ....

... hit an impressive top speed of 204 mph.

Power will be supplied by McLaren's trusty 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V8, which produces an incredible 562 horsepower.

The McLaren isn't just powerful -- it's also lightweight, tipping the scales at a feathery 2,895 lbs.

Carbon-ceramic brakes bring that svelte package to a quick stop.

The 570's interior is traditional McLaren: race ready technology with a hint of English luxury. If orange leather is a bit over-the-top ...

... McLaren can provide a more subtle tan shade.

The center console infotainment system is state-of-the art.

Music lovers will enjoy the 12 speaker Bowers & Wilkins Stereo.

Just look at those sculpted aerodynamic elements!
