Thread: McLaren Ownership?

    McLaren Ownership?

    I had the opportunity to test drive a McLaren 570S spider, and I left the dealership impressed with the car. The light weight design of the 570 sets the tone for a very high level of performance and a great driving experience. Anyone have experience in owning a McLaren?

    I have a 12C Spider for the last four years and I love it. I am waiting for the 720S Spider. I test drove the 720S and it is another league.

    Thanks Joe! I am interested in a 2014 12C spider. Any watch outs or other advice?

    Repairs are very expensive. Get the extended warrantee.
