The 2017 McLaren 570GT is a new edition to McLaren's Sport Series. It's a bit more comfortable and daily-driver-oriented than its stablemate, the 570S. Thankfully though, it has the same thrilling engine and lots of the same luxury equipment. Like other McLarens, you won't be choosing from the base, midlevel or high-end models; the 570GT really is a custom-built kind of car. There are a few option "Packs" or packages that bundle together various carbon-fiber parts, specifically divided into interior and exterior groups, but really, you can check items off the options list, one by one, until you've configured your perfect McLaren.
Pricing is, as you'd expect it, high. But compared to McLaren's own 650LT or the ultimate hypercar, the P1, the 570GT is a bargain. You'll get much of the same exclusive vibe and blistering speed for a fraction of the big hypercar's price. Italian and German rivals will likely be just as taxing on your wallet, but in this price range it's more about finding the car that perfectly fits your personality instead of your budget.
When you start adding items to the 570GT such as the optional sports exhaust, the 12-speaker stereo or any number of custom seats, the price can quickly go up above the quarter-million-dollar mark, but that isn't a trait unique to McLaren in this class. Most high-end sports cars in this performance bracket share similar pricing structures.
