But nearly every moment I spent in the McLaren was one of absolute terror. The car is so low, so light (at 3,200 pounds the 570S is 600 pounds lighter than the 3,800-pound NSX) that I alternated between being worried that someone else would crash into me, and convinced that I would light up the rear tires and crash into someone else. The rear-wheel drive 570S is remarkably upfront. It will always remind you that you could fuck up and wreck at any time. Did you see that video today where the 300 Jedi kill 60,000 medieval soldiers ? That’s what the 570S is like to drive.
