The most astonishing thing when you consider McLaren and what they’ve been able to achieve is 10 years ago, McLaren Automotive were known for the F1. A car that is 25 years old and legendary within it’s ability & legacy. 8 years ago, they re-ignited the flame and begun building road cars to rival the likes of Ferrari, Lamborghini and Porsche. Well, here we have the flagship Sports Series McLaren ready and available for hire! Now even though McLaren claim the 570s is their ‘sports car’, don’t be fooled by this. The McLaren 570s is an out and out Supercar that really pushes Ferrari and Porsche to up their game! If you want a bit of F1 history, a raw & unfiltered experience behind the wheel of a classic mid-engines V8 then the 570s is the car you need to have a drive in! 

With 562bhp a 0-60mph time of just over 3 sounds (probably closer to 3 seconds flat) and a top speed of 204mph, this car is faster 0-60mph than a Ferrari Enzo and a Porsche Carter’s GT It’ll keep up with the 5.2 V10’s of the Audi R8’s as well as the Huracan’s and in a straight line, will out drag most supercars under £300,000 in 1/4 mile. 

Where to start with the McLaren 570s. Let’s start with the aesthetics. The road presence of the baby sports series can sometimes be mistaken for the £1m halo hypercar, the McLaren P1. It’s happened not just once too! I find myself in traffic with passers-by mistaking the 570s for the P1. If that’s not proof of just how good this car looks on the road, then I don’t know what is. Sitting low, with a wide track & a longer body than the McLaren 650s, it really holds it’s own against the Ferrari 488 or Lamborghini Huracan. Inside, you sit behind the steering wheel fully believing you’re sat in a race car. Positioned over the front wheels, the driving position is bang on perfect for driving hard and precisely. The front wheel arches act is reference points and you really feel like you’re driving a rocket fuelled go-kart. So from the outside, the car is epic, the inside is comfy, beautifully built and set up for track, but also...capable of long distance driving as well as popping up the pub. 

McLaren know how to make a beautiful car, but where they specialise is down to how their vehicles drive. Here is where the EV Stig can get excited. The confidence this car gives you as you push on towards the limit is what makes this such a special drive. These cars are so fast it’s hard to comprehend. The McLaren 570s doesn’t have any active aero but you wouldn’t notice so. Through the corners it’s as flat as ever, and poised ready to dart out of any corner. The McLaren 570s won so many awards when it first came out. As an ‘entry level’ Supercar, this is hard to beat, and is such a beautifully easy car to drive. 

The only interesting element of the car that needs to be discussed, especially being the EV Stig and being lucky enough to drive all sorts of exotic cars, is the McLaren’s soul. McLaren have built one of the best super-sports cars in the world. A car that is more precise than a Ferrari, just as crazy as a Lamborghini, and as punctual as a Porsche around the race track. But with fresh blood, comes a lack of history, and maybe that’s what is missing from this McLaren. McLaren Automotive haven’t had the opportunity to build a strong and consistent legacy yet, and unfortunately they haven’t been able to find their character. The engine block twin turbo’d is a phenomenal set up combined with their chassis and drivetrain. Everything is so precise, and as you’d expect. Who knows, I haven’t been able to answer the question and I’ve driven a few of these majestic beasts. Come and drive this great Supercar, and try and answer this question!

First class. I will back.

James Daly, JD Personal Training

The best Christmas present my husband has ever had. Great service and Daryl is exceptionally good at his job. Thank you, see you next year!

Ruth Moyler

My wife and I hired a Tesla Model S P100DL+ (unbelievable car) for the weekend from EV Hire. The service was first class. The car was delivered clean and fully charged to our house and collected once we had finished. All questions were promptly answered both before and during the rental process. We also found the rates very reasonable for what is a truly phenomenal driving experience. I cannot highly recommend them enough!

Mr & Mrs Tabbah

Really great experience in the model S. We drove from Hampshire to Pembrokeshire and back for a work team building experience on the coast. Used every feature of the car plus the supercharger network.
I'd like make a particular mention of Daryl who provided an excellent service. He's a very trustworthy guy.
Unreservedly recommend this company.

James Simms

Incredible car and overall a lovely weekend with a Tesla Model X P100DL+. Communication was great all the way through and will have to give the Tesla Model S P100DL+ a go at some point! Delivery and collection was effortless. Would recommend.

Mr Khalid El-Qasabagli

Very easy & trouble free rental process. Wonderful customer service. A great experience. Already recommended them EV Hire a few people

Zoe Nolan

Don't doubt this company - the cars are new and in perfect condition. Tesla P100DL+'s are a huge amount of fun and Daryl runs this company properly.
To top it off, EV HIRE dropped the car off at my house and also collected it on the day of pickup included in the price. Can't fault them!

Anthony Herbert

First class experience and a wonderful car (Hired a Model X P100DL+). Pre-hire every question I had was answered quickly and the EV Hire team really couldn't do more to make sure I got the most out of the experience. Car was immaculate and just the most incredible drive - thank you so much for a weekend that will stay with me for a long time - your passion for Tesla's is infectious!

Jon Barrett

I have to say my eyes have been well and truly opened. The Model S P100DL+ we hired was top of the line and I have NEVER been in a car that accelerated so fast. Sublime. Brilliant customer service. Heartily recommend EVHire.

Richard Dawes

Had a Tesla Model X P100D for a day out in Oxfordshire. What a great car, wonderful service and amazing experience overall.
Thanks to the entire EV Hire team!
