This weekend was the Shanghai Auto Show, and one of the big announcements at the event was the unveiling of the new McLaren 540C, otherwise known as the McLaren 540 Club. And the good news doesn’t stop there for McLaren fans, as according to the automaker the car will be available all over the world.

The McLaren 540C is purported to be the most affordable McLaren yet, but don’t let that fool you into thinking it’s not packing serious heat under the hood. The “540” in its name comes from its metric engine output, which translates in American horses to an impressive 533 horsepower. Its top speed is no slouch either, just missing that crucial 200-mile-per-hour threshold at 199 miles per hour.

You can expect the McLaren 540C to hit the official McLaren site here any day now, so keep your eyes there for more information. We do know that the car will be available by special order only once it hits US shores, but until then you can feast your eyes on some photos of the car in the gallery below.
