McLaren: once the underdog, right now a big name in the supercar world. Of course the history of McLaren in terms of road cars goes way back to cars like the F1 and the SLR McLaren, but things really started to get going with the introduction of the (MP4-)12C. While it was an epic car from a technological perspective, it lacked a bit of emotion and it had a few bugs
. Soon after the 12C the 650S was introduced, which proved to be everything we would’ve ever wanted from the 12C. These were all cars from the Super Series, which are more upmarket. Because McLaren also wanted to offer clients (say 911 Turbo buyers) in the lower segment of the market an option they introduced the Sports Series, with the 570S being the first car in this ‘range’. It has the same carbonfiber monocoque and V8-engine as the previous models, only with a little bit less power. Time to shine!
