It actually has more torque than its bigger brother.

Own a McLaren 570GT and want it to have just about the same oomph as the beefier 650S? German tuner Wheelsandmore has just the right solution to your #firstworldproblem. The aftermarket specialist has worked out a way to upgrade the standard 3.8-litre twin turbo engine to 650hp and 516lb ft of torque.

That’s up by 80hp and 74lb ft compared to a standard 570GT, and puts it on a par with the 650S in terms of horsepower. It actually trumps its more powerful sibling by 16lb ft in terms of torque.

To squeeze the extra muscle from Woking’s well-used V8, the tuner has installed a low-pressure exhaust system and sports catalytic converters. Some software tweaks completed the mods, shaving 0.3 seconds from the 0-62mph sprint, now taking a mere 3.1 seconds or just one tenth of a second slower than the 650S Coupe. The top speed hasn’t changed, so take the 570GT to the max and it will reach 204mph.

In order to live up to its name, Wheelsandmore has replaced the standard alloys with custom 20-inch front and 21-inch rear forged wheels wrapped in Continental tyres and with a finish mirroring the 570GT’s original set. These new shoes are complemented by height-adjustable springs and a lift function to make sure you won’t scratch that expensive bumper whenever going over bumps.

The tuner hasn’t messed around with the car’s design, so with the exception of the wheels, it looks just about the same as a standard 570GT. We'll let you decide whether that’s a good or a bad thing.
