Road tripping in a McLaren 570S and 570GT

It may not be the most comfortable car on the road, but for something with this kind of performance it makes an admirable grand tourer.

Join us for a road trip across Europe in a fleet of McLaren cars! Sadly not this particular McLaren, though.

The fleet was mostly 570S and 570GTS, with a 650S thrown in for good measure.

Loading was a bit of a delicate process.

We were quickly discovered by a flotilla of school kids.

We parked up just outside Eau Rouge and wished we were going faster.
