Review

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.

  • Citroën C3 Aircross
    First Drive
    17 October 2017
    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
