Butterfly doors. At McLaren’s brand new Boston dealership, the 570S had me at its butterfly doors. You can’t help but feel cool to the core when popping open this coupe like a bottle of Dom Perignon. “I don’t always drive sports cars,” you might say before pressing the ignition, “but when I do, I prefer a McLaren.”
From its stealthy exhaust to its carbon fiber racing seats, this 570S screams, grunts, and whispers exotic. Yet, despite its intimidating exterior, you don’t need an engineering degree to figure out how to drive it. A clean and elegant dashboard. An iPad mini–sized screen at the console. Simple knobs to switch between driving modes. And then, wait, what’s that? A launch button? Press it and blast from 0 to 60 in the blink-of-an-eye.
Keep your foot on the gas and you’ll be cruising quadruple the speed limit on the Mass Pike six seconds later. Turns out these butterfly doors aren’t just for show—the 570S really knows how to fly. From $184,900. 22 Pond St., Norwell, 781-347-3163
