Cost & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

It doesn’t matter how you look at it, there’s no real reason to spend this sort of money on a car; this is something you want rather than need. At least standard specification includes climate control, leather seats and the touchscreen infotainment system with sat-nav and Bluetooth connectivity.

It should also be noted that the McLaren is cleaner and less thirsty than some rivals. With CO2 emissions of 249g/km and combined fuel economy of 26.6mpg, it beats the Audi R8 in both normal and Plus guises. Saying that, a Porsche 911 Turbo would prove even cheaper to run.

Verdict

The McLaren 570S is crushingly fast yet communicative and fun, even at sane speeds.

  • Incredibly fast
  • Fantastic handling
  • Surprisingly large boot
  • Could sound more tuneful
  • Lacks all-weather appeal of R8 and 911 Turbo
  • Infotainment system could be better
