'The 562-hp twin-turbo 3.8-liter V-8 that lives in the middle of the 570S runs as if it comes from a company that competes in Formula 1—which it is. Paired with a quick-shifting seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, it launched the lightweight 570S with such brute force that the muscles in our neck had a tough time coping with it." - Car and Driver

7.2/10

"The interiors on the 2017 McLaren 570S and 570GT are notably different. The 570S is surprisingly minimalist, with a TFT (thin-film-transistor) LCD display offering faithful re-creations of analog gauges and a single multimedia touch screen floating over a spacious area between the seats. Its available Nappa leather and Alcantara surfaces fill in the negative spaces, elegantly combining form and function." - Kelley Blue Book
