      Dont liek the name as it will cause confusion with the Ford GT

      But I do love the extended wheel base which makes it look like an actual Longtail

      Like me naked, I'm going to guess it looks better in dim light if it has any current McLaren styling cues to the fore or aft.

      Upon my word I have had as much excitement on a car as in the air, especially since the R.F.C. have had women drivers. -James Byford McCudden

      There are now more posts in this thread about the date format than the car.


      Damn I love this place.

      I can't blame you. This is yet another derivation on the 570S chassis? To me it's a resounding meh.

      Amazing.. A Maclaren I don't immediately like.

      Maybe i'll feel differently about it when I see it in the wild.

      My question is who is buying all these variants? Do McLaren owners change cars every time a new model comes out?

    23. 05-15-2019 03:56 PM #22
      Can't say I care much for the looks. I'm sure it will drive great, but it wouldn't be on my radar for such a car.

      If I wanted a proper GT, I'd buy Bentley's. If I wanted an affordable(ish), dailyable fun mid-engine supercar, I'd buy an R8. And if I wanted a McLaren at this price point, I'd buy a 570.

      It looks like a supercar design from Grand Theft Auto, not McLaren. *yawn*

      I miss the time when McLaren meant a car looking manly.

      And it even smiles. ...
