Every person has the right to dream of having the fastest, coolest, and advanced Supercar. We, the car lover, do that whenever we have time, right? However, the reality is different. Most of us can’t afford those premium class cars.
That’s not surprising. The price of a Supercar is way more expensive than the standard car. Fortunately, McLaren tries to change this mindset. They released the McLaren 570S Spider that is said to be the most affordable Supercar in the world.
Or, maybe, we can use the correct word as mentioned by McLaren, which is the most “attainable” Supercar. So, how much do you need to spend to get one unit of 570S Spider?
570S Spider’s Prices
The best way to show the attainability of 570S Spider is by comparing with the other similar model/class McLaren cars. This is where the “attainable” status came from. So, McLaren will launch only 400 units as the first batch of this series. It is called the “launch edition models”. The price for each unit of this model is $208,000. Isn’t it expensive?
As you can see, if you compare it with other brands, some of them might have slightly cheaper prices. For example, one of the Lamborghini cars, the Lamborghini Huracan, is only $202,895, which is cheaper. Then, there is also Aston Martin Vantage, which is only $149,000.
However, if we compare it with the other Supercar by McLaren, such as 675LT Spider or 650S Spider, you can see that 570S Spider is much cheaper. It is $200,000 cheaper than 675LT Spider and $120,000 cheaper than the 650S Spider. Furthermore, most of the premium class Supercars or maybe Hypercars cost you 7 digits, which is another reason why 570S is a good choice for your budget.
The Specifications and Performance
One of the main reasons why a Supercar can cost you a lot of money is they have superb performance and high-quality specifications. How about 570S Spider?
• The Engine
570S Spider uses a 3.8 liter twin-turbo V8 engine. Thanks to this engine, this car has a strength of 562 horsepower to run on the road. This car is very fast, as expected from a Supercar. With the 0-60 mph in 3.1 seconds acceleration and a top speed of 204 mph, the ordinary car won’t be able to catch it. This acceleration even closes to 675LT Spider, another top Supercar by McLaren.
• The Hardtop Roof
Another amazing thing you will find in this car is the hardtop roof. It is retractable. Now, you have a Supercar that you also can turn into a convertible car. If you want to feel the fresh air during your cruise, just hide the roof with simply push a button. You don’t need to worry about the wind, as it is equipped with a proper windshield. Moreover, the retract speed is quite astounding. Within 15 seconds after you activate it, the hardtop roof will be completely hidden in the back.
The retractable roof is not only the feature you can use to show off to people on the road. But, when you hide the roof, it also improves the rear aerodynamics. McLaren adds a specially designed spoiler that works like it should be, give it more down-force. This will let you run much faster.
• Interior and Its Features
McLaren doesn’t focus too much on the interior. They remove many elements that can add more comfort value from it. Therefore, you can get a much “cheaper” price for this car.
However, the leather seating and faux-suede headliner still give you a nice amount of comfort while you drive this machine. Furthermore, it has the standard Supercar system, such as dual-zone automatic climate control, touch screen display to operate most of the features, sound system, and driver assistance technology for improving its safety.
It is not much, but it’s enough to provide a great experience driving this Supercar.
It is indeed a great deal, especially with those amazing specifications, performance, and features you can only get from a premium-class car. McLaren 570S Spider offers a similar experience you get from a Supercar, however with the more attainable price compared to them. So, if you buy it, you have made a good investment here.
