The McLaren 570GT is a softer, more sensible supercar

Roadshow
Welcome to the McLaren 570 GT, the 570S's more relaxed sibling. The main difference you can see here is the redesigned rear end. Do you see that glass panel? That lifts up sideways so you can load the back from the curb, which is pretty cool. In all, it has about 370 liters of cargo space. Which is a bit for a car like this. It's also riding in softer suspension. Because when Clarence custom is wanted something just a little more relax for day-to-day. I didn't want to drive on a race track on their commute. They want something keep them nice and comfortable. It's also got a nice light, airy interior, thanks to a panoramic roof. So the whole car just feels a little more livable. However, Mclaren says that it's still a fantastic sports car, as well as a GT. And considering what it's based on, you probably can't argue. Here's why. Well, the 570S is a sports car, well, McLaren's take on one. It lands hard and fast. It wears the McLaren badge well and it uses the same 3.8 liter engine as the P1 and the 650S and the old 12C out there in different states of It offers 204 miles an hour. And has more power and all torque than it's rivals. It handles wonderfully. Rewarding the expert while flattering the novice. Basically it's a proper bit of kit made by people who really know. What they're doing. Now performance wise it's a little slower than the 570S because this whole rear thing adds a little bit of weight. So not to 62 takes 3.4 seconds as opposed to the S's 3.2. Not to 124 miles an hour takes 9.8 as opposed to the S's 9.5. But it's top speed is still north of 200 miles an hour. Now, about those softer springs. They may be softer today, but they still are adaptable. So if you do want to take this thing on the track, you can press the big angry track button and go have some serious fun. Comfort is the name of the game with the 570 GT. So, the standard fixture as well, they're a little bit different from the S. For example, the exhaust, the standard is three decibels quieter than the 570 S. And the brakes are INS standard, rather than carbon ceramic. The reason being, carbon ceramics are a little bit grabby, they take a while to warm up. They're not as easy to use on the road. Whereas, normal brakes, As large as these are, they are still normalish but they're easier on the day to day. All in all, this is McLaren's take on the GT, a smoother, comfortable but still I imagine hilariously fun car. I'll tell you what, I can't wait to drive it.
