If you’ve never driven a supercar the odd thing is that sometimes the impression of speed is not as great as you might have anticipated.
I’ve often wondered why this is – then I realised it’s because these cars are so good, so competent that you just don’t realise how fast you are travelling.
Maybe that’s why accoustic exhaust systems have become regular fit on so many models. They create the drama that feels like it is missing!
Th McLaren doesn’t have a screaming exhaust button and it’s all the better for it. The 540C is the cheapest car in their stable but it’s perhaps the most usable on an everyday basis.
I think I could have given my granny the keys to a 540C and she wouldn’t have felt intimidated.
You just need a bit more time inside the cabin to work out how everything works because that side of the McLaren does take some getting used to…
