McLaren 570S - Guest drives

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.

What to expect from the McLaren 570S Thrill

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.

The wonderful 570S is arguably mclaren's greatest achievement to date.

The Stunning McLaren 570S

One Amazing Car

McLaren describe the 570S as "completely driver-centric, equally at home on the track as it is on the open road" and we have to agree! The McLaren 570S inspires confidence from the moment you head out of the pitlane onto the track. The 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 engine (the same as used in the McLaren P1) is immense. The car is so fast and feels like it always wants you to go faster.
