The McLaren Experience

March 19, 2016 - Motor & Sports

It isn’t every day one describes a luxury supercar as an experience, however it is almost impossible to approach a McLaren in any other way. Unlike other supercars, the 570S Coupé is definitely in a league of it’s own when it comes to finding that perfect balance between performance and usability.

Yet it’s true strength lies in effortlessly relating to its driver, regardless of preference or ability. From the moment you first lay eyes on this tamed beast, a relationship is instantly formed between driver and machine.
While other cars sometimes give the impression they are perhaps laughing at you, the 570S Coupé simply offers a warm and welcoming smile, pleading with you to come and play, with an almost child-like innocence. Yet once inside, it exudes confidence and assurance, and it is here where McLaren’s sheer class really comes to light and sets this car apart from any of its competitors.
This ingenious design is at the heart of the whirlwind journey one is about to embark on when first coming into contact with this elegant monster, and this is all thanks to chief designer Robert Melville. However, it is the incredible synergy between design and performance, which is the most impressive aspect of the 570S Coupé. There is no doubt that while driving, one is at the helm of a McLaren supercar. Yet because of how easy and comfortable the drive is, one is only reminded of their situation once you decide to put your foot down and unleash the ridiculous power at your disposal. Either that or the moment a busload of onlookers passes by with eyes and mouths wide open, staring in absolute amazement at the finely tuned piece of engineered brilliance you are sitting in. It’s a supercar that stands out, but has no ego. It has the uncanny ability to satisfy drivers of all skill levels, and still deliver the same experience. It feels safe and comfortable, but far from normal and common. The McLaren 570S Coupé is not just a supercar, it’s a capsule of freedom and understanding which only McLaren have the skill and passion to create, and is without doubt an experience you will not find anywhere else. Words and pictures, although enticing, do not do this car justice. Perhaps seeing is believing, however only driving is truly experiencing.
