Mclaren 570S Spider

£ 143,250
Published: 25 Jul 2017


What is it like on the inside?

It’s nicely finished, simple, clean and effective. Plenty of Alcantara and carbon - although the car I drove had a luxury interior package with tan/black for £2,570 and carbon additions (switch pack surrounds, steering wheel spokes and carbon paddles) for £2,550, but generally it’s a pleasant and focussed place to be. The seats (electric, heated, and part of the  - cough - £7,280 luxury pack that includes a stereo, power everything and branded floor mats) are a bit hard at first and then fantastic once you settle, and the positioning is spot on. It feels as if you sit low - and you do - but the general 360-vision from the 570 generally and the Spider in particular is excellent. Cracking for placing the car on the road - although the rear 3/4 is a bit compromised by the buttresses. The touchscreen in the top of the centre console means there aren’t a plethora of buttons to deal with - though it can be hard to see in strong sunlight - and the rest of the necessary stuff like the mode switching rotaries in the Active Dynamics Panel for Comfort, Sport and Track are dealt with lower down. It feels special, but still comfortable - even getting in and out requires very little knowledge of yoga.
