McLaren 570S Tested on Road and Track

We saw the European reviews of the 2016 McLaren 570S a couple of months ago, and they all waxed lyrical about the car. Now let’s see what the Americans think of the baby Mac, as Motor Trend’s Senior Editor Jason Cammisa and SCCA pro Randy Pobst hit the road and then the race track in the cheapest McLaren of them all. 

The technical aspect of things aside, before you even begin to learn about the specs of the McLaren 570S you have to decide whether you like the way it looks. And we don’t think this particular color is doing the car any favors. But hey, since the next McLaren you can buy is a hundred grand more expensive, you amy not mind the looks that much!
