The McLaren 570GT is McLaren’s attempt to tackle luxury. Sort of. The GT is a tiny bit softer, a teensy bit more cosseting, and has a little more boot space, than the 570S.
But it makes precisely the same amount of power from its 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V8 and, as we discover, is every inch as good a driver’s car as anything else produced in McLaren’s Woking factory.
And that makes it very good indeed: easily as compelling as an Audi R8 or Porsche 911 Turbo, as Matt Saunders explains.
