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.

Luxury tan leather looks like an option to avoid. Those windscreen reflections look terrible.

I agree, @bomb. Dire. Pity road tests of this nature make no comment on such matters. Having in the past had an ordinary car with a light dashboard top (not an option to have otherwise), and having to suffer reflections (like peering through fog), it is in my view a significant safety concern. The only colour is dull black for me.

Nice road. It reminds me a marvelous ride on Etna with a Panda MkII.
