Wallpapers: three McLarens at the TG test track
Prepare your desktop for summer with Britain’s finest fleet of supercars
A couple of months ago, Top Gear magazine awarded McLaren the prestigious title of ‘Manufacturer of the Year’. To demonstrate why, Ollie Marriage made a beeline for the TG test track with a 570S, a 675LT and a P1 GTR in tow. All in the name of consumer journalism, we swear.
Naturally, his consumer journalism involved some thorough testing. And oversteer. You can read all about it here.
The gist of the exercise was to show how far McLaren has come since their maiden outing with the MP4-12C all the way back in 2011. It was a cracking car, especially considering it was the company’s first attempt, but a lack of refinement and character left it streets behind the likes of the Ferrari 458.
However, fast-forward a handful of years and McLaren has begun to get the hang of things. The 570S represents a breakthrough in terms of feel, performance and has a distinct personality.
And yet, McLaren hasn’t managed to pull it off once, but three times in the space of twelve months with the trio of cars pictured above. They’ve been plugging away at their spotless technology centre in Woking for six years now, and we’re pleased to discover that the effort hasn’t been in vain.
Mclaren’s supercars really did make 2015 a vintage year, and they deserve a place on your desktop. All you have to do is click the full screen/make-it-big icon in the bottom-right of the gallery above, scroll through the picture that takes your fancy and then save the super hi-res image to make it so.
