Recently, Destination Luxury had the pleasure of getting behind the wheel of the McLaren 570s. The auto definitely has showstopping appeal — everywhere we drove, bystanders would do a double take (or three). People would scramble to find their phones to snap a photo as we drove up the coast of California from Los Angeles to DAOU Vineyards in Paso Robles.
One of our favorite features of the car was the gull-wing doors. With the gentle press of a button, the doors opened with ease to reveal a stunning interior. The car might be low to the ground, but once you’re inside, you feel like you’re stepping into the clouds.
“The Sports Series is aimed at a new audience,” explains Mike Flewitt, Chief Executive Officer of McLaren Automotive. “It is the first time we’ve competed in the sports car market as opposed to the supercar market. As with all McLaren models, we have prioritized performance, driving engagement and exhilaration. It is a totally driver-focused car, with excellent ergonomics and visibility, and a class-leading driving position. This is also the most day-to-day usable, practical and attainable McLaren we’ve ever made. It is a dramatic and beautiful sports car.”
This car can stop and turn on a dime and accelerate effortlessly. It goes from 0 to 60 in less than three seconds and has a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V-8. Although it is the smallest of the McLaren family, we can assure you that power doesn’t take a back seat. This machine is a technological wonder.
We finally made it to the prestigious DAOU Vineyards and enjoyed a smashing event with a The Great Gatsby theme. Everyone was dressed to impress and our McLaren 570s ride was definitely one of the main attractions of the party.
If you’re really looking to scorch some asphalt, you should look no further than the McLaren 570s. This beauty can be yours starting at $187,400 and can be found at your local McLaren dealer.
