Our friends at Supercar Advocates are at it again with a brand new video review of the 2016 McLaren 570S!
Lee K from Supercar Advocates gives us a great walkaround review of all the intricate details of the 570S before taking us behind the wheel for an up close and personal look at what its like to drive the car.
As a recap, the 570S is powered by an improved iteration of the 3.8L twin-turbocharged V8, designated M838T E, with 30% of the parts redesigned. It delivers 570hp through a 7-speed Graziano dual-clutch gearbox. A dry weight of up to 1,313kg (with lightweight options) gives the 570S a power to weight ratio of 428bhp per tonne, delivering a combined fuel economy of 10.7L/100km (~9.35km/L) and CO2 emissions of 249g/km
With the 570S, McLaren focuses on delivering “day-to-day usability and drivability,” as well as easier everyday serviceability – due to the use of more traditional body materials instead of the carbon composite variants – against the most sporting model options in its range (ie. 650S/625C and above.) The 570S has increased luggage space, greater interior storage, leather upholstery, and various audio/communications/navigation/telemetry options, albeit with the omission of certain dynamics such as the signature rear active spoiler.
