mclaren’s for sale are a dream to own, but come with a steep asking price. They are the fastest naturally aspirated cars in the world.
The cheapest McLaren is the 570S which is an incredible performer. It can go from 0-60 in 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of 204 mph.
1. McLaren P1
The McLaren P1 occupies a rarified niche in the hypercar sandbox – it’s a true beast with a brutal, 2.8-second run to 60mph and 217mph top speed. Its combination of a petrol V8 with a hybrid electric motor offers a unique blend of superb throttle response and day-to-day drivability.
A car that demands total commitment to unlock its full potential, the P1 generates 600kg of downforce even at speeds well below its astronomical top speed. It also features a roof structure safety cage and a battery electric power boost system that’s so efficient you won’t get hit with a gas-guzzler tax when driving it in bumper-to-bumper traffic.
The P1’s lean, purposeful proportions accentuate the various performance-defined details scattered throughout. From the teardrop-shaped cockpit to the adjustable rear wing, the design was conceived with extreme performance in mind.
2. McLaren 720S
The McLaren 720S is the core model in the Super Series line-up. It’s powered by a 710-hp twin-turbocharged V8 that delivers an engaging blend of linearity and peak power.
There’s a lot to love about the 720S, especially when it’s allowed to let loose on a racetrack. Car journalists often wax lyrical about the pleasures of wringing every last rev from an NA engine, but the massive mid-range wallop of this turbocharged V8 is just as addictive.
This two-seater is also a very capable everyday driver thanks to its low mass and colossal stopping power. McLaren’s Proactive Chassis Control III enables it to ride better than many family-focused SUVs, while still handling like a dream. And the 720S’s carbon-ceramic brakes are even quieter than you might expect from a high-performance supercar.
3. McLaren 570S
McLaren’s first entry into the ‘Sports Series’ lineup, this mid-engine sports car slots below their GT, Super and Ultimate Series models. It features a carbon-tub chassis and their 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine.
As with all of McLaren’s current offerings, the 570S offers incredible performance. It also boasts one of the best power-to-weight ratios in its class.
It’s available as a coupe or convertible and can be equipped with various track-focused options like the McLaren Track Pack. Inside, drivers and passengers will find the driver-oriented cabin that McLaren is known for. It includes dual-zone automatic climate control, leather seating and a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system. There are also a number of optional amenities including the nose lift that lowers the car 40mm to clear speed bumps and low driveways.
4. McLaren 570GT
Designed to be more usable than its Sports Series brethren, McLaren’s 570GT is the ultimate McLaren for driving daily. It gets a fastback roofline that stretches back over the mid-mounted V8 engine, plus storage space thanks to a tailgate that opens up to reveal 220 liters of cargo capacity.
But it’s still a supercar, so it drives like one too. The 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 delivers grip for days, and the McLaren’s light body and impressive suspension setup make it a canyon carver with real road-car comfort.
McLaren has made some modifications to the GT that improve its usability, including softer suspension settings and a quieter exhaust that reduces some of the snorty noise. The steering is also a bit less direct, but the GT remains a pure driver’s machine.
5. McLaren Senna
The McLaren Senna (internal index P15) is a track-focused road car that looks like a Formula 1 racer. Its limited production numbers make it scarily rare, and even dull examples command millions of dollars.
Named after storied Brazilian Formula 1 driver Ayrton Senna, this hypercar is designed to annihilate the competition on a racetrack. But unlike the Ferrari FXX range and upcoming Lamborghini Sesto Elemento, the McLaren Senna is street-legal.
Its lightweight Monocage III carbon structure is the lightest road-car structure McLaren has ever built. Inside, there’s room for a lucky passenger and an even luckier driver. The bucket seats feature a choice of three padding thicknesses. Behind them is a high shelf that can fit two helmets and racing suits. The brakes are ludicrously powerful, allowing you to stamp on the pedal as hard as you can and still come up short of stopping the car.
