We all know the McLaren 720S is the supercar king of drag races, but it’s only fair that its baby brother occasionally has a moment in the sun. We’re talking about the 570S - specifically, one in Spider form - which proves to be devastatingly fast in these drag races from Car Wow.
OK, so it’s hampered by a slow folding roof during the first race, with the contenders having to lower theirs before starting, but thereafter, the McLaren puts on a dominant display against the BMW i8 Roadster, Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster and Audi R8 Spyder.
Even with a poor start in the second race, the 570S was able to overhaul the Audi R8 Spyder and take a comfortable victory. It would have been slightly closer had the more powerful post-facelift R8 been available for this race, but even so, our money would have been on the machine from Woking.
Rematch in 2019, anyone?
