What Car? says...

If you were to take a look at the specifications of the McLaren 570S, you might expect McLaren to describe it as a supercar. With 562bhp from a twin-turbocharged 3.8-litre V8, it’s good for a 0-62mph time of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 204mph.

It seems McLaren doesn’t reckon that’s enough performance for a supercar these days; the Woking-based company insist that the 570S is a sports car. That doesn’t mean it counts the Mazda MX-5 as a rival, though – the 570S has the Porsche 911 Turbo and Audi R8 firmly in its sights.

Both of those are cars that can potentially be used every day, yet can still top 200mph on a long enough stretch of autobahn or runway. The McLaren is certainly fast enough, but there’s more to it than that.

To make sure it’s a practical proposition, the carbon fibre chassis has been designed to ensure entry and exit is as painless as possible. Furthermore, storage space is more generous than you would have found in the now discontinued McLaren 12C. Arguably, this is the most complete car the brand has ever built.

Over the next few pages, we'll tell you how it matches up to those rivals, how practical it is and even what it’ll cost to run. More importantly, we'll tell you just how much fun it is, too.
