What is it like on the inside?

All we know and love about McLaren’s road cars – huge windscreen, fantastic visibility, perfect pedal positions and ergonomics – are present and correct. There’s just a veneer of racing razzmatazz over the top, with track-spec six-point harnesses complementing its road-legal three-point seatbelts, as well as a roll cage and some red straps to help you pull the butterfly doors shut with. They’d probably save us a few blushes fitted elsewhere in McLaren’s range…

The lightweight carbon sports seats – drip-fed down from the Senna – aren’t the easiest to clamber in and out of, but you’ll be snug in place once you’ve ungracefully found your way in. There’s a lot more Alcantara and visible carbon than even a 600LT, while the carpets and glovebox have gone and the centre console has been raised, bringing the driving mode buttons closer for when the harness is pulled tight.

Air con, a stereo and sat nav are all no-cost options (with a fancy Bowers & Wilkins sound system available for extra cash) and while it’s naturally up to you how useful those will be, we’d heartily advise air con for both road and track use. And as mentioned, the stereo might seem a bit superfluous even at motorway speeds. Save the weight.
