McLaren is Building an Affordable Supercar
McLaren in an effort to boost factory capacity and bring new buyers to its brand, is building an luxury sports car for the road, not the track.
The 570S is Mecca’s 1st sports car dubbed affordable, and a daily driver, and it is available to any auto enthusiast with around $200,000 + tax and license.
The 570S is not a track car, or a race car, it is a luxury sports car.
It is the 1st of McLaren’s Sports Series, it has cup holders, and enough trunk space for a comfortable weekend away.
It sits higher than the 650S, and the door openings are cut lower, for easier ingress and egress. The interior is wrapped luscious leather, rather than lightweight Alcantara, and the 1st McLaren with a vanity mirror.
The 570S is a gateway supercar, read entry level, aggressively priced to bring fans into the supercar market.
The 2016 McLaren 570S
Vehicle type: 2 door, 2-passenger sports car
Base price: $187,400
