The 570S isn’t just another supercar slayer. Its job is to occupy purer and more exciting territory than rivals with front-mounted engines, occasional back seats, four driven wheels and the like – and it does that quite brilliantly.

But unlike other rivals, the 570S can do that job entirely without pummelling your backside, trying your patience or testing your concentration.

Supercar pace, poise and excitement without a £200k price. Exceptional

Its performance level is exceptional, without compromise to driveability. Its handling is equally outstanding: a special mix of track-ready purpose, with on-road compliance, precision and stability – and enriched by wonderful control feedback.

Great material quality, good infotainment features, decent carrying capacity and a fine touring range make it competitive on usability, too.

Six years into its new life, McLaren Automotive has launched the car with which to make its reputation, and it’s well worthy of an unqualified thumbs-up from us. Giving the 570S the edge of its nearest competition which includes the Porsche 911 Turbo S, BMW i8, Audi R8 V10 Plus and Aston Martin V12 Vantage S.
