McLaren’s Chief Tester Is Encouraging Drivers To Push Its Cars Past The Limit

Hooning

What else would you do with a McLaren?

There are distinct differences between normal cars and supercars, obviously. Some differences are readily apparent, such as those concerned with price and performance. But other differences are only found while pushing on the wall of what a machine is capable of. Cars like the Camry have traction control buttons hidden away somewhere in the dash because who would bother to deactivate traction control in such a vehicle? Breaking the limit means taking a car further than it was designed to go.

Not so in a McLaren 570S.

Sure, some of the premium you pay for a supercar goes towards the badge, but the other part is dumped into the salaries of people like Chris Goodwin, chief tester at McLaren. It’s guys like him who have the hard job of wasting one set of tires after another in an endless pursuit to fine tune the steering, throttle, suspension, and chassis so that when the 570S falls outside of its limit, it still preforms marvelously. We're talking driver's car of the year marvelously. Don’t take it from us, listen to Goodwin as he describes the various levels of engagement that the 570S has. He even goes as far as saying that the 570S unlocks itself more the harder it’s pushed.
