Guest drives the McLaren 570S

4 laps

The McLaren 570S is stunning. The design is completely different from any of the other supercars in our driving experience fleet. The 570S isn't just nice to look at though. Out on track the twin turbo V8 engine (the same engine used in McLarens P1) delivers seemingly endless acceleration. The chassis is more than up to the job of keeping everything in check, especially around the long sweeping corners at Thruxton.

About the McLaren 570S Driving Experience

All other manufacturers need to take note; McLaren are rewriting the Supercar rule book. The 570S is a brilliant example of how a potent V8 engine combined with a super light chassis can produce an astounding car. The design of the 570S is beautiful but it still has an imposing presence. Inside, the famous McLaren minimalism works beautifully yet there’s still a sense of drama when you climb in and drop in to the seats. Out on track the 570S is responsive, agile and incredibly rewarding to drive.

As part of the McLaren 570S driving experience, guests will have the chance to learn the race circuit with an ARDS qualified race instructor initially as a passenger and then driving the Porsche Cayman.

The Porsche Cayman is a fantastic sports car that out performs other more expensive machinery. A great car that gives the driver lots confidence behind the wheel.

McLaren 570S

McLaren describe the 570S as "completely driver-centric and performance oriented, the 570S Coupé is equally at home on the track as it is on the open road" and we have to agree! The fast sweeping corners and high speed nature of Thruxton quickly expose any cars vulnerabilities. The McLaren 570S inspired confidence from the moment we headed out of the pitlane on to the track. The 3.8 litre twin turbo V8 engine (the same one that's used in the McLaren P1) is immense and took us by surprise. The car is so fast and feels like it always wants you to go faster.
