Audi R8 V10 Plus Vs McLaren 570S In Fight Of Everyday Supercars 12

Both the Audi R8 and the McLaren 570, be it in S or GT version, are marketed by their manufacturers as combining supercar performance (and looks…) with everyday usability, which makes them natural rivals.

Before you give us your best guess regarding which one of these two cars is faster in a straight line, you should know how they stack up on paper.

The Audi R8 V10 Plus has bragging rights when it comes to power, sending 610 PS (601 HP) to all four wheels, together with 560 Nm (413 lb-ft) of torque. The output and the grip should, naturally, give it an advantage off the line.

Then again, McLaren has been known to be a bit conservative when it comes to its models’ power output figures, and the 570S is already pretty impressive in that department with 570 PS / 562 HP and 600 Nm (442 lb-ft) of torque, according to the manufacturer.

Both cars can hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.2 seconds, and max out upwards of 328 km/h (203 mph) – the Audi will actually do 330 km/h (205 mph) flat.

Thanks to Archie Hamilton Racing, we get to see the two supercars go at each other multiple times, from a standing start as well as from a roll. As for the winner, sorry, but there are no spoilers here; you’ll have to watch the video to find out.

MSO Comes Up With New Shade Of White, Demoed By 570S Spider 7

Posted by Sergiu Tudose in mclaren, McLaren 570S, MSO on 12 7th, 2017


Dubbed ‘Muriwai White’ the new color pays homage to the New Zealand coastal community, Muriwai, where Bruce McLaren won his first race at the age of 15.

It’s also the name chosen for his family house in England, which was panted in a blueish-white color, much like the one you see on this McLaren 570S Spider.

MSO’s Muriwai White paint is white with blue flecks, inspired by the whitewashed walls, deep blue doors and shutters of the old McLaren homestead.

Bruce McLaren’s daughter, Amanda McLaren herself worked with MSO in order to develop this color, before returning to her childhood home in the first 570S Spider to be finished in Muriwai White.

“Muriwai was always special to my father; the exotic name as much as the house. Forty-two kilometers’ northwest of Auckland, it’s where he grew up and won his first hill climb, aged 15, at the wheel of an Ulster Austin which remains in McLaren’s heritage collection in Woking.”

“I’m sure my parents would have loved this ‘Muriwai’ color, and they would be so proud of the 570S Spider and the other McLaren road cars, as that is where my father saw the future of the company,” said Amanda McLaren.

Moving forward, MSO will be offering Muriwai White as an ‘a la carte option’, available on any McLaren road car.

Is The McLaren 570S Spider The Perfect Supercar? 24

McLaren has yet to attract a fan base to rival Ferrari, Porsche or Lamborghini but the British marque’s models are some of the finest in the industry.

For performance-hungry enthusiasts, the McLaren 720S is one of the fastest cars currently on sale and soon, it’ll be surpassed by two, limited-run models from the carmaker. Take a step down the McLaren ladder and you land on the Sports Series range, home to arguably the segment’s most well-rounded mid-engine sports cars.

The newest addition to this family of models is the 570S Spider. Introduced earlier this year, it looks just as good as the hardtop, drives just as well, and thanks to the lack of a fixed roof, allows drivers to enjoy the twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 in all of its glory.

To discover just how potent the car is, Jethro Bovingdon headed to some stunning Scottish roads and in typical Motor Trend fashion, the review is simply sensational, particularly when it comes to the videography.

Aftermath Videos Of A Totaled McLaren 570S In London 23

A McLaren 570S is no more, after it was crashed under unverified circumstances.

The accident reportedly happened in central London, a couple of weeks ago, and judging by the videos that follow, the British supercar appears to be damaged beyond repair.

Its front end is ruined, and so are the rest of its sides, while it’s also missing a wheel and the suspension. Moreover, it seems that the engine bay has suffered significant damages of its own, but the passenger compartment has remained in one piece, suggesting that the occupant(s) might have walked away.

One of the videos’ description might give us a clue as to what exactly happened, as it says: “this crazy guy [McLaren 570S driver] hit a war pensioner, then ran from the scene”. If that’s indeed the case, then there’s a good chance that at the time of reporting this story, the driver had been identified.

It hasn’t been a McLaren-loving month, as this incident joins another one in which a P1 was extensively damaged in Cambodia, whereas in Georgia, USA, a man was taken into custody after speeding in his 720S on the State Route 400.
