Launched in the summer of 2015, not far behind its bigger sibling, the 570S, the 540C was designed to marry superior driver engagement with both exciting performance and everyday usability. Like all the cars produced in the Sports Series, the 540C shares its carbon fibre construction with its Formula 1 and supercar cousins. The MonoCell II is a strong, rigid chassis that weighs less than 80 kg and provides exceptional crash protection and outstanding dynamics. This lightweight construction, coupled with the potent mid-mounted 3.8 litre twin-turbo V8 engine, provide the best power-to-weight ratio of any sports car in its class. Even if you take for granted 0-124mph (200 km/h) in a scarcely believable 10.5 seconds and a top speed of 199 mph (320 km/h), nothing prepares you for the thrill of the 540C’s race-bred dynamics. With a chassis, adaptive dampers and all independent suspension honed to create an unrivalled balance, the 540C seamlessly blends its track credentials with an ergonomically designed interior, armed with smart stowage areas and luggage space. This flawless combination allows the 540C to feel as at home in the city as it is on the limits of the racetrack.
