Owning a supercar is every small boys dream. Come to think of it, it is every big boys dream too… There is a rich tapestry of choices to make if you find yourself at the entrance of a dealership, that is after you decide what brand out of the many highly competitive offerings presented to you. McLaren would be a commendable choice with their strong technological links to Formula One. At the New York motor show the British brand revealed a new model that is set to worry Porsche and their 911. The McLaren 570S begins a new chapter for the company and now you can configure your very own.
Whilst killing some time at an airport I had a play with the new McLaren 570S building segment of their website. Powered by a 3.8 litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine, this “entry level” McLaren is a serious piece of kit. 562BHP will get it from 0-62 MPH in just 3.2 seconds, to 124 MPH in 9.5 seconds and onto a top speed of 204MPH.
I chose to go for a dark colour pallet in order to make this baby McLaren look more sinister. Black alloy wheels joins gray paintwork and carbon fibre detailing. Inside the darkness continues, although red inserts on the sports seats adds a splash of colour and matches the exterior badging.
Bored at work? Home due to sickness? Day off? Curious amount of time to kill? Or even sat at an airport? Build your dream McLaren 570S HERE. Who knows, it might be in your driveway one day.
