Someone should tell him that wearing shades while presenting a video review really isn't great. Good to see more positive comments though - again, the McLaren on the road seems to appeal in many ways.

At last a tester talking sense! This is what the car was designed to be - something at least as fast as the best on track or B road but equally as good as the best GT cars at long distances on motorways and A roads. The 'and' car - why has no-one else mentioned its everyday usability? The Ferrari is a great Car in its own right but for me I could never use it for any occasion as it is not enjoyable doing so in a car as noisy and as 'look at me' as that. Ferraris are looked at in their garage more than they are driven on the road - the Mclaren was designed to be an everyday car. Hence the reason its attracted so many Porsche customers. Why have a car like this and not use it?

I don't disagree but the 458 is great on all roads too. It's hard to imagine the MP4 can be much more usable. Green is praising the engineering achievement of the McLaren and rightly so. An every day car? I'm not so sure. It's a mid engined supercar after all.

He should have flipped the EVO chaps the bird as he drove by. :p
