2018 McLaren 570S Spider
If a picture paints a thousand words, then the album of images on this 570S Spider tells a story that would last a summer holiday. Finished in (optional, and stunning!) McLaren Orange exterior colour – even on the brake calipers – this 570S Spider has all the go-fast bits, both literally and aesthetically.
The sports exhaust resonates the gases flowing through its pipes with even more intensity while the pipe tips themselves blend in with the lower body work for pure stealth. The use of carbon-fibre goes above and beyond what you might normally see on a supercar, with the hi-tech weave incorporated into the steering wheel frame, shift paddles, door switches, centre interface pad, lower console and door speaker surrounds. The McLaren Design sports leather and Alcantara interior with orange stitching brings the cockpit together just perfectly.
While sitting in the pilot’s seat with fingers wrapped around the snug steering wheel gives tactile pleasure, it’s the on-road experience of this Sports Series open top McLaren that delivers the goose bumps. The force fed V8 engine is a cracker, with more than enough power (419 kW) and torque (600 Nm) to deliver the thrills, and sure-footed handling provided by the double wishbone suspension and super sticky Pirelli P Zero rubber.
Front lift system
But not every drive involves winding the tachometer needle into the red zone. This 570S has all the right comforts and practical features for everyday driving as well, thanks mainly to the vehicle lift system and front/rear parking sensors with rear camera.
Pre-owned and well-cared-for McLaren 570S’ make for good buying and therefore provide affordable entry into the realm of modern day supercar ownership. And this is a standout. Additional features include: carbon-fibre body, launch control, adaptive dampers, 10-spoke lightweight forged alloy wheels in stealth finish, special paint, sports exhaust, carbon-fibre upgrade pack, vehicle lift system, parking sensors and reversing camera
