... perhaps buy one when it's done most of its depreciating, and stick with the factory guarantee.

I'm not sure how early a car that would imply - McLaren did good work on setting up finance deals 2 or 3 years ago - some of those cars will be coming to market... at some point they'll be good value

In 2017 we were on the M6 headed up to Morgans at Widermere. Two McClarens passed us. Lovely looking cars so I followed them. No speeding but maintaining 70 ish.
I often wonder what people were thinking as the 3 of us passed.....
Both cars exited in, I think, the Blackpool/Lancaster area but not certain.

I struggle to get the appeal as they do nothing for me at all

Wouldn’t mind a drive of one just to see what they are like as I would a Lamborghini but when I’ve seen them at car meets, I forget to take any real notice

I'd have one in a heartbeat were I not an impoverished pensioner - I have given these a good scrutinise at Goodwood FOS and they are very well put together.
I'd not get a fourth car by swmbo radar.

Yeah I agree Stewart. I can appreciate the engineering but I don't have a use for a car like this. I could find a use for D Type Jag though.

I went to a Liverpool cars and coffee meet late last year and apparently there were 3 McLarens parked opposite me all morning

I say apparently as I didn’t even clock them and found out after I left, although I did take s photo of 7 Lambos all lined up behind me, which was quite a sight, not because I lust after them but because they looked quite photogenic in a long low line with their acid colour combination

The thing that strikes me with these type of supercars is how rediculously low they are

How do owners drive over speed bumps or get into and out of car parks?

Most have a front axle lift system fitted.
