After waiting one week for the car to arrive, here it is. My second 1:18 review.
Oh Texas... The winters are usually not that bad (we had ZERO frost this year...) and that means Cars and Coffee year round. But the flip side to this all? Summer... The ability of that copper scoundrel* to heat up the DFW area in the early morning is amazing. Hydration is a must!
Well that didn’t end well.
So for the last few days we have been in the Canary Islands with McLaren, testing the new 570GT back to back with the 570S. Our findings?
Proper, face melting, fat tired eye candy. Your processed and colorful sugar pales in comparison. Can we stop now?
See title. I live in a city where people prefer to buy fancy cars and live in a shoebox of a house. So there are lots of generic higher end BMWs and Benzes driving around, Porsche Cayennes are about as common as Mazda 6 series and there’s the odd Ferrari, Audi R8 and Lamborghini driving around.

That and having the P1 GTR cars be there, and the 650S Sprint cars, and a few old F1 cars was just breathtaking. More pictures later, ask me whatever you want.

McLaren are adding to their brutally successful motorsport portfolio, their new Sports Series 570 model is getting the full GT4 and Sprint series treatment.
Last weekend, 8 McLaren P1 GTRs and their owners attended a private track day at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in Monterey, CA. Clubstrada’s photographer, Chris Morrison, was there to catch all the action. Enjoy and share responsibly!
If you’ve missed the Bathurst 12h qualifying session, you can watch it all HERE (also contains some other cool races!).
which wears it better?
Words by Ted Ziemba, photos by Curtis Liew. Back in May of 2015 I had the great privilege to drive a friend’s 2014 McLaren 12C Spider. The suspense up until I drove the car was strong. Since 2011 when Jeremy Clarkson of Top Gear reviewed the Coupe (then named the MP4-12C) I was really eager to experience McLaren’s…
