I collected my first Mclaren yesterday so thought I would join up. I have a few other cars and my daily smokers are a G63 AMG and a C63 AMG.... I don't travel far to work!
I had an itch for a new car and this has been a hard choice! I set a budget of £100k for this car which soon went out of the window!! I test drove the following new/demo (specced up) cars... AMG GTS £120k, Audi R8 plus £140k, Carrera 4s £120k, 540c £140k, 570s £160k, Huracan £190k, used 458 £175k....
I have had great fun test driving all those cars!!!!
I have had a couple of "garage queen supercars" and this does not work for me, I like to have it out ready to use every day come rain or shine!
I ended up with a new high spec 540C which I got yesterday... I have no issues with this being the "entry Mclaren" it suited my needs the best out of all of those cars. I find it a great everyday car with a fantastic sense of occasion!
A quick review of each, don't shoot me this is only my opinion!! AMG GTS - Fast but not a supercar, R8 - Really really fast but big money for an Audi!, CARRERA 4S - Extremely boring, 570S - Not worth 20k more for me, HURACAN - R8 with Lambo Badge, FERRARI - Just not my taste!
Had a great 2hr road trip home in the car in convoy with a friend in his new F Type!
