McLaren 570S review

Published: 17 Dec 2019


What should I be paying?

Because it’s light, and has a relatively modest 3.8-litre engine, cruising fuel economy is reasonable. You’ll manage 25mpg or more. Engage the turbos and that will fall very quickly. Expect 20mpg overall, although the trip computer will insist you’re doing more than that. Think 280-300 miles from a tankful.

Since it’s now been on sale for four years, it’s likely you’re looking at buying one used rather than new. Probably because prices look temptingly low. We’d urge you to buy as new as possible – although McLaren does have a record of upgrading earlier cars with later software. Just watch the spec. Don’t be persuaded to pay too much extra for lightweight carbon packs that cost a fortune to option new. Ask yourself how you’re going to use the car. Intending to drive it every day? Have a 570GT and look for a more comfort-orientated car. Thinking track days? Go the other way. The Sport Series McLaren can feel very different depending on how it’s been optioned.
