In the world of supercars, it gets harder each year to build something that takes people’s breath away, but that’s what McLaren has managed to do with the 570S.
The exterior of the 570S is a veritable feast for the eyes. It is completely aerodynamic, featuring aluminum body panels in a range of vibrant colors, and it has so many personalization options that it isn’t difficult to make your car even more special.
The rear of the car is inspired by the McLaren P1, the 570S’s famous supercar cousin, with an open mesh design in the taillights that cools the engine and gives the car a futuristic look. The doors are the classic dihedral design that McLaren favors, inspiring thoughts of flight when the doors are open. The flying buttresses that link the roof to the rear deck complete the picture and give this car a sleek, modern feel.
You Can Have It All with the McLaren 570S
It’s a rare thing to find a car that’s equally impressive on the track and the highway. You’re either sacrificing comfort for speed or vice versa. Not so in the 570S. It is geared to deliver a thrilling experience no matter the context in which it’s being driven.
Boasting the lightest weight in this class of vehicle, not to mention the highest power-to-weight ratio, the McLaren is a dream to drive. While it doesn’t carry the hefty price tag of a Ferrari or Lamborghini, it’s every bit as much fun and showcases just as much style. Getting behind the wheel of this vehicle transports the driver to a different world, and you may just have trouble coming back to Earth.
One of the Fastest Machines on the Planet
The McLaren’s powerful mid-mounted V8 launches the lightweight car from zero to sixty in 3.2 seconds. It can reach 124 mph in just 9.5 seconds. The 3.8-liter engine is constructed of aluminum, is twin-turbocharged, and is situated low in the chassis for added maneuverability.
The car delivers a sound to match the engine thanks to the exhaust system, which growls pleasantly on acceleration. A sport exhaust is available as an option, and it makes the car sound even more aggressive.
To handle all the power being delivered to the wheels, McLaren installed their brake steer technology on the car, which applies braking force to the inside wheels in the corners.
Getting into the McLaren 570S feels like sliding right into the lap of luxury. The seats are covered in buttery hand-stitched leather, the trim is softly glowing satin chrome, and the center console seems to float in place. You can choose from different colors and leathers to customize your dream car or pick one of the ten By McLaren designer options.
As far as electronics go, there’s a TFT display with LCD graphics that offers access to adaptive driving modes. The information the display delivers first depends on which mode you choose to drive in. There’s a race-car style display available in Track mode that demonstrates for you the perfect gearshift point. The IRIS entertainment system includes sat nav, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi tethering, voice activation, and SiriusXM radio. You can also control the radio, climate, and rear-view camera with IRIS.
