• Top 5 Reasons the 2017 McLaren 570S Is a True Supercar [Video]


    The gorgeous McLaren 570s is a rear engine, rear wheel drive, speed demon. But some might say the convertible doesn’t quite meet supercar specs. TFL’s Roman Mica begs to differ. Without further adieu, here’s a quick rundown of his top 5 reasons the 570s deserves its slot amongst the world’s most exotic supercars.

    #5 – It’s really hard to get into and out of.

    Like all great supercars, the McLaren requires several months of regular yoga practice in order for big guys such as Roman, who clear six feet in height, to slide into. Short race car drivers will find it no big deal, because the cockpit is designed for short race car drivers. As Roman describes it, the McLaren is “like a really fine, tailored suit that’s one size too small.”

    #4 – There are no true cup holders anywhere!

    The McLaren 570s is purpose-built for hauling **s, not spirited cross-country travel. Besides, if you tried to sip your coffee while accelerating onto a freeway, you’d just spill it all over yourself.¬†Those who want to take a road trip can get a GT (grand touring) car. Or a minivan. The McLaren does have a net to hold stuff though.

    #3 – The twin-turbo V8 that pumps out 550 horsepower.

    ’nuff said.

    #2 – The tiny front trunk that holds two overnight bags.

    ‘Cause doesn’t every supercar have a rear mounted engine and rear wheel drive and a front trunk? You won’t need more cargo space anyway, because you’re going to be mentally exhausted from driving the McLaren 570s more than 2 days in a row. Who needs to carry more luggage?

    #1 – 0-60 mph in under 3 seconds.

    OK, now we’re talking. As Roman explains, that kind of acceleration induces tunnel vision, the point where you see the road in front of you, but everything to the sides is just a blur. Its kinda like jumping to light speed in Star Wars. And that, my friends is truly why the McLaren 570s deserves the supercar moniker.

    1. You have never learned the correct way of getting in and out of cars like that. I am 6 ft 2 inch tall and have no problem in getting in and out of my C4 Corvette
