This new shot, which reveals the so-called ‘500S’ tearing sideways through a corner, follows a tightly cropped shot released early last month.
The 500S coupe is also expected to be joined by a ‘Spider’ roadster version, and reports suggest a more traditional fastback body will join the range down the line.
Power in the 500S is expected to come from a 500PS (493hp, 373kW) version of the 650S’ 478kW 3.8 litre turbocharged V8, although the carmaker has yet to confirm any details on this front.
Speaking with TMR in November, McLaren Automotive’s Executive Director of Global Sales and Marketing Jolyon Nash says the Sports Series family will be a huge sales driver.
"It will provide more volume than a 650S, for sure," Nash said.
"In our long-term plans at McLaren, we anticipate that we should see some healthy growth.”
Importantly, Nash reiterated that McLaren has no plan to join the movement towards volume-building passenger cars.
"I don’t think you’ll ever see a McLaren SUV, I can’t imagine it," he told TMR.
"We will stay true to what McLaren is. It’s a sports car company, a supercar company, and that’s what we’ll focus on."
The 500S is rumoured to debut at either Geneva in March or New York in April, while pricing is expected to be in the same region as cars like the Mercedes-AMG GT, Aston Martin V12 Vantage, Porsche 911 Turbo and Audi R8 V10.
