McLaren Cars

Having cleaned up in the North American-based Can-Am series back in the '60s, as a constructor McLaren has enjoyed more recent success in both Formula One and IndyCar. Today, while still competing at the highest levels, it is also a manufacturer of high-performance exotica, and has turned what is normally seen as a British-based cottage industry into a relatively high volume business model fully embracing high tech. If Aston Martin is too old and Ferrari simply too flashy, McLaren's workman-like approach to mid-engine design might just be your (British) cup of tea.

If you're some distance from a metro center, know that a visit to a McLaren showroom will probably require the purchase of a plane ticket. Once there, you'll find the 570S occupying the 'most affordable' rung on the McLaren economic ladder, while the 650S is both the most popular and - at present - the most fun to drive. With its strong history in competition, in combination with the almost quaint locale (Woking) in which they're constructed, McLaren provides a compelling option for those that can afford it.
