2018 McLaren 570GT

It was gorgeous out yesterday, and to alleviate my cabin fever, so I took the top down, and went for a cruise. While I was enjoying the weather, I happened across one of these swoopy, street legal race cars from McLaren: The 570GT.

Powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V8 engine, driving the rear wheels via 7 speed dual-clutch transmission.

0 to 60 miles in 3.3 seconds
562 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque
Top speed of 204 mph; Quarter-mile in 11.1 seconds.
3314 pounds
Redline at 7,500 rpm
19 MPG
MSRP $202,950

That is a lot of well-balanced power for a relatively light vehicle — which means a stab of the throttle sends this screaming away.

The curvy shape has really grown on me. A few months ago, used examples were going for $150+160k, but circumstances have obviously changed. I have been watching a lot of cars at Bring A Trailer going for 10-15% less than normal. That pandemic pressure has impacted prices from the ultra high end supercars to run of the mill fun weekend drivers.

The one below finishes its auction today, and is currently bid at $111k. It will be interesting to see what it sells for…
