2017 McLaren 540C Walkaround — What are the 570S and 540C differences?

Read the article here. There’s no such thing as a cheap supercar, but the 2016 McLaren 540C Coupe is probably the closest thing to it. Starting from a measly… ahem… $350,000 driveaway (before options) the all-new entry-point to McLaren’s Sport Series range is competitively priced if you think of it in the same echelon as a Lamborghini Huracan LP580-2 (from $378,900 plus on-road costs) and the Porsche 911 Turbo (from $384,900 plus on-road costs)...
