2019 McLaren 720S Spider review

Not only is it the fastest convertible on the planet, it's also got the fastest retractable hardtop in the segment. I'd also argue it's the most capable and most comfortable.

2019 McLaren 600LT Spider review

It's positioned in a series below the 720S Spider, but it can accelerate from zero to 100km/h in the same 2.9 seconds and hit a top speed of 324km/h. This is not your average supercar.

The surprising inspiration for the iconic McLaren F1

Remember the funky Toyota Sera? No? Unsurprising, really, as the sporty little coupe was built exclusively for the Japanese market, with a total of 15,941 cars produced from 1990-96. Of those, 15,852 cars were registered in Japan, emphasising its local market credentials. The 2+2 seater was powered by Toyota’s 1...

2019 McLaren 720S Spider review: Who needs a roof?

The 720S Spider demands a hefty $66,100 premium over its Coupe sibling, as well as rival models like the Ferrari 488 Spider ($29,112) and Lamborghini Huracan Performante Spyder ($23,365). But I’d argue that neither can match the all-round performance of the McLaren both on and off the track, as close as they might be.

2019 McLaren 600LT Spider review: Who needs a 720S?

McLaren’s newest track-focused weapon is the 600LT Spider, and if you’re thinking it’s a junior-league performer because of its Sports Series product positioning and open-top profile, you couldn’t be more wrong. You can probably guess which car they benchmarked during the development too – yep, the 675LT Spider, meaning this thing has massive shoes to fill as the latest and fifth chapter in the Longtail lineage...

2017 McLaren 570S review

Read the full review here. Mention the name McLaren in most circles and you’ll find people automatically start to conjure up images of Formula One racing. But the fact is, McLaren Automotive (the sister company to the Formula One business), currently offers more road-ready cars than Ferrari. And this from a division that only kicked off in 2010...

Audi R8 RWS and McLaren 540C duke it out to see which is the best 'affordable' everyday supercar.

2017 McLaren 540C & McLaren 570S review

For many of us born in the 1980s and beyond, growing up we obsessed over posters of Ferraris and Lamborghinis, filling our childhood ambitions with thoughts of 'one day'. Now though, for those that will call themselves car enthusiasts in a decade or so, the British brand that is McLaren is making some serious headway...

2019 McLaren 600LT Spider pricing and specs

McLaren has revealed pricing for its 600LT Spider in Australia, as the limited-edition convertible touches down locally. The car will be hard to come by; McLaren's Asia Pacific boss confirmed barely 50 will reach our shores between coupe and convertible. Pricing will start at $496,000 before on-road costs, a $44,000 jump on the coupe...

McLaren to reverse its Australian sales slide

British supercar maker McLaren is on a mission to reverse its first sales slide since launching in Australia, after deliveries dropped by 24% last year. After more than tripling its annual sales from 2012 to 2016 – from 23 to 93 deliveries – McLaren peaked with 116 vehicles reported as sold in 2017. However, sales hit the brakes in 2018 with just 88 finding buyers locally...

McLaren 570S: MSO Defined High Downforce Kit revealed

McLaren Special Operations (MSO) has revealed a new aerodynamic pack for the 570S supercar, which should make the already-capable exotic carve corners that little bit better. Dubbed the MSO Defined High Downforce Kit, the new option pack for the Sports Series variant increases downforce and enhances the aesthetics – though the latter is entirely subjective...

2019 McLaren GT revealed
