Interior Designers Critique Car Interiors: Joe Lucas on the McLaren 570S
Fast Lane Daily | On 22, Feb 2016
When I’m in New York I spend most of my waking hours in bars and restaurants. In Los Angeles I spend most of my time in the car. Maybe my respective (and completely separate!) drinking and driving habits are more pronounced than most, but in LA your car really is a home-away-from home. So our ongoing series in which residential interior designers critique automotive interiors seems even more appropriate here in the City of Angels.
Supercars don’t typically offer much in the way of interior space, but cruising the city’s surface streets and superhighways in the $182,000 McLaren 570S admirably showcases the company’s first foray into the realm of the “everyday” supersports car. It’s more comfortable and less track-focused than previous offerings (but still wildly capable, make no mistake) and attempts to inject a bit more affection and repose into the somewhat austere and technocratic British brand.
