Legendary race-bred supercar maker McLaren just unveiled its latest model, the 570S Spyder, a 560 horsepower, twin turbo monster that'll have the wind blowing through your hair more powerfully than a category five hurricane.
The rollout of the traditionally-powered supercar is designed to help the company raise sales and profits with the idea of investing those earnings into an electric and hybrid vehicle production strategy to better compete with rivals like Porsche and other supercar makers.
Bloomberg reported on Thursday, June 29 that McLaren plans to expand its production to include 15 models by 2022.

Unveiling the car at The Goodwood Festival of Speed in England, McLaren Chief Executive Officer Mike Flewitt told Bloomberg, "The focus going forward will be on successfully delivering these new products and managing continued profitable growth."
The company last year sold a record 3,286 cars, doubling the previous year's production and boosting pretax earnings by 70%, an admirable performance that Flewitt told Bloomberg, shows that "growth plans are both achievable and sustainable."
