Top 10 Breakthroughs at the International Auto Shows (Best of Year 2015)

1. McLaren 570S prototype


The British beauty is the first in the McLaren sport series and had one of its many debuts at the International Car Show. The McLaren 570S is the definition of exotic. It is a classic sports car with a mid-mounted engine, rear-wheel layout and a lighter, stronger and more innovative carbon fiber chassis. With its M838TE twin-turbo V8 engine, this beast produces 562 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque. Power was at the top of their list with its lightweight structure and the use of aluminum body panels. It races down the road with a seven-speed SSG transmission and Pirelli P-Zero Corsa tires.


Contrary to popular belief, not all sports cars have to be gas guzzlers, and the McLaren 570S proves this. The McLaren 570S has an estimated combined fuel economy of 25.5 mpg. The interior is as suave as the exterior. Designed with the driver in mind, the McLaren 570S comes complete with a seven-inch IRIS touchscreen, floating center console, integrated climate control, Bluetooth and SIRIUS satellite radio. Going from 0 to 62 mph in just 3.2 seconds and reaching 124 mph in 9.5 seconds, it is the ultimate James Bond villain car.
