Mention the name McLaren in most circles and you'll find people automatically start to conjure up images of Formula One racing. But the fact is, McLaren Automotive (the sister company to the Formula One business), currently offers more road-ready cars than Ferrari. And this from a division that only kicked off in 2010. McLaren might seem like a late starter in the sports car business, but celebrated driver and founder, (the late Bruce McLaren) actually designed, built and drove the McLaren M6BGT prototype in the late 1960s as part of his plans to diversify and start building road cars. Based on the successful M6 Can-Am chassis, it was not only quick, but people at the company's HQ could hear him coming from about five miles down the road, according to McLaren's daughter, Amanda. All variants of the 2017 McLaren 570 are powered by a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V-8 with 562 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque paired to a seven-speed twin-clutch automatic transmission. Regardless of which variant you choose, the 2017 McLaren 570 is EPA-rated at 16/23 mpg city/highway, which is surprisingly good for a powerful rear-drive, mid-engine sports car. Cargo space stands at 7.8 cubic feet behind the front seats and 5.3 cubic feet in the car's frunk (front trunk). This is a car that punches not like a super welterweight, but a full-blown heavyweight – with the gloves off. The fact is, it's not far off the main event, if we're talking the fight game here. It's got solid credentials, too; carbon-fibre tub, engine mounted behind the cabin, rear-wheel drive, tricky dihedral doors and a lightning-quick seven-speed dual-clutch transmission that seems almost thought-reactive. It's also ridiculously light (1313kg dry), even for this weight saving-obsessed segment. By way of comparison, the Ferrari 488 tips the same scales at 1420kg. In a world where each kilo saved is considered an engineering triumph, it's an extraordinary achievement and fast becoming a hallmark of McLaren road cars.
