In developing the Sports Series range of the models, McLaren diverted from its usual path of straight-line and racetrack performance in favor of pure driver enjoyment.
Although McLaren Automotive is only 5 years old, most reviews agree that the McLaren 570S is one of the best sports cars on the market, even being named as Motor Trend’s Best Driver’s Car. And in its chase of driving thrills, has the 570S lost McLaren’s touch to rival the established European marques on the track?
Well, Evo Magazine recently brought the bright orange 570S to the Anglesey circuit for the latest inclusion in its lap time leaderboard.
Competing against some of the industry’s fastest vehicles, the 570S sprinted around the circuit in just 1:14.5. That time puts it 0.7 of the second ahead of the 991-generation Porsche 911 Turbo and only three-tenths behind a 458 Speciale.
Compared to the 570S’s most direct rival, the 911 Turbo S, the poised Brit is 0.9 seconds slower, and despite weighing significantly less. Nevertheless, you can bet your bottom dollar that a McLaren was the most enjoyable of the two.
