Owning a McLaren has always been a symbol of power and achievement. The automaker has never been shy about its racing-inspired engines and designs. The 2019 McLaren 570S, however, makes it a bit more reachable and even a smidgen more practical. McLaren says the 570S provides “day-to-day usability and drivability.” Translated, this means more luggage space and interior storage space. It still, at its core, is a world-class two-seat sports car with exceptional power and acceleration. All the iconic McLaren touches are there like the dihedral doors and dramatic, bold styling. It just may be time for you to step into a McLaren.
Ready for Launch, Ready for Lunch
McLaren’s “day-to-day usability” proclamation should not convey the 570S is the car to choose for a family outing. It has racing DNA through every strand of its carbon fiber tub. The twin-turbo 3.8 liter V8 engine will get you where you want to go quickly. Mounted behind the cockpit, this throaty power plant generates 563 hp and 443-lb-ft of torque. A sequential 7-speed gearbox drives the rear wheels to a top speed of 204 mph. Don’t think the McLaren can get from zero to 60 in about 3.2 seconds. McLaren is obsessive about weight, with a lightweight but nearly indestructible Carbon Monocell chassis. It has a stealthy dry weight of just 2989 lbs.
From the Track to the Driveway
The 2019 McLaren 570S offers some nice conveniences and an abundance of practical technology that make it a bit more “daily drivable”. These include little things like a tad more upright setting, a vanity mirror, and even cup holders. There is more space for luggage and even a well-placed set of golf clubs. Leather seating is a bit thicker and the dihedral doors make entrances and exits easier. A TFT Instrument cluster serves to keep you informed of speed, gear selection, and rpm. Secondary data is provided in outer sections. A 7” touchscreen keeps you entertained and connected. A 4-speaker, 240-watt audio system is standard. The interior is uncluttered yet elegant.
Attention Grabbing Design
The 2019 McLaren 570S uses a variety of bold intakes, vents, and curves to carve through the wind while creating a stunning design. Sparkling LED headlamps and muscular curves lead to the teardrop cabin and finish with flying butteresses. A racing-inspired rear end is elegantly trimmed in slimline LED light blade LED tail lights. Then, of course, there is those distinctive upward-swing dihedral doors that create an additional “wow factor” to this already impressive sports car.
Permission to Drive Daily
No, the 2019 570S may not be for everyone, but what McLaren wants to ultimately do is give those who are pulled toward it permission to drive it daily. It is priced in a “gateway” range to be more accessible and designed to be just a bit more practical. The 2019 570S just may remove some barriers for those who may have otherwise dismissed the thought. What’s stopping you?
