So fast and composed

by CM from Chicago Area, IL on Sun Dec 10 2017

Traded my Porsche 911 against the McLaren 570S last week and it’s one of the most composed and exciting cars that I’ve ever driven. It out performs the Porsche in every single way so far. I can’t speak yet to reliability, but this is a thoroughbred sports car that’s easy to drive fast. It hooks up and goes remarkably well for a RWD mid engined machine and the styling is totally unique. If there was ever a car that makes other exotics look common, this is it. Can’t say enough good things about the car so far.

very good

by Hoa Duong from houston,tx on Tue Aug 22 2017

I think it is a sports car worthy to buy but really cost so I think it will have a very competitive rivals should lower the price and add many penalties to compete with huracan and Ferrarri 448 although its taller ... I am a fan of MC L I hope you show me the real return of MC L, thanks

Sublime

by lalm917 from Houston,TX on Tue Jul 31 2018

I test drove this car a month ago. First impressions? It's beautiful! The sleek curves and duo-tone paint scheme really make it stand out among other supercars. As for the interior, the Alcantara bucket seats engulfed you, and the dash was wrapped in a beautiful black leather. The infotainment system was easy to navigate and very helpful. Now, on to the more important stuff: speed, performance, and handling. The car accelerates from 0 to 60 in what seems like a millisecond. It hugs the road nicely, and goes round corners like an F1 car. It's brilliant. If you have the means, definitely go for it. You won't be disappointed.

My first super car.

by Kehling from Reno, NV on Thu Jul 05 2018

I have had it only a few weeks and have less than 250 miles on it as it was in the shop getting the full PPF treatment. So far, though, wow I mean really, WOW! I swear it rides better than my C63 AMG S. I do not have the break in miles on it yet so I have yet to really wring it out but even with what I have done, it is simply a phenomenal car. I have a Corvette Z06 as well and the handling dynamics between a front engine vs a rear engine were much different and better than I had expected. I have had a few little issues with it so far but they have all been addressed unter warranty so nothing really alarming there. I plan to track it soon and cannot wait to really push it and hear the engine howl. I certainly hoped it would be a wonderful car and it has not disappointed. You really can drive it every day if you'd like as it is quite civilized around town. The 570 is not as knife - edged as a 650 and that is exactly what I was hoping as it want to enjoy it on the road yet still be able to take it to the track several times a year. The cost of ownership seems reasonable given its super car status. Much more exotic than other cars in its category and seems really well built. As for value, that is certainly subjective but given its place in the pantheon of similar cars, I would say it is a very good value.

Our Take on the 2016 McLaren 570S

The verdict:

The 2016 McLaren 570S is a racecar for the street, serving up dramatic speed, incredible ability, outrageous styling and a quirky character that makes it intensely desirable.

Versus the competition:

Other supercars are more comfortable, some are more advanced and a couple have better electronics, but few can stop onlookers dead in their tracks like this one can.

People often wonder how automotive journalists can jump out of a car like a Toyota Corolla and into something like the 2016 McLaren 570S and be able to evaluate those two polar-opposite vehicles effectively. The answer is simple: Good reviewers are able to retain their experiences in competing vehicles and compare them against newcomers. So because I've driven monsters like the Audi R8 V-10, Nissan GT-R, Dodge Viper and other supercars, I can tell you about the new 570S and let you know if it's any good.

McLaren has been around for more than 50 years, mostly in racing circles, and it pioneered the use of carbon fiber in Formula One. The modern McLaren was launched in 2010 as a stand-alone... Read More
