Sorry to bore you with yet another sealed model, but this one’s too good not to share. Initially not on my radar at all; I happened to stumble upon it during an online shop’s Black Friday sale and scored this one for a little over 50% off the MSRP. How could I NOT add this to my collection?


Its hard to keep up with all of the cars Woking is churning out these days, but the 570s is part of McLaren’s “entry level” supercar line. One step above the 540C, it’s brothers and sisters include the top of the line 600LT, 570GT, 570S Spyder, and the ultra rare MSO X. See? Confusing.


Billed as an everyday supercar, the McLaren 570s can rocket to 60mph in just under 3.2 seconds and can carry you and a guest to a 204 mph top speed. The car sports the chilling McLaren grin that we find across the company’s design language, and takes some styling cues from the legendary P1, like the pencil thin LED tail lights. It’s also got millionaire-style butterfly doors, or “dihedral” for you nerds, but my McLaren is a sealed resin car. TopSpeed’s models really miss out on key features such as these doors.


Much in line with my other TopSpeed models, this car has more than exceeded my expectations. The paintwork is bright and flawless. Carbon fibre details garnishing the trim pieces looks like the real deal, and the sealed engine cover features real mesh. The “flying buttresses” on the doors were executed really well, and are sturdy enough that you aren’t afraid to handle the car.

Wheel, brake, and interior detail are nothing short of spectacular either. I had a lot of fun with my macro lens capturing the small details featured on this car. Usually I can find at least one thing to complain about on a model, but this one has me at a loss for bad words. If you can’t get passed the nature of a sealed resin model and need to have fancy opening doors, there’s a composite AutoArt model that will deal a heavy blow to your wallet. For the price I paid; my plastic is better than your plastic.
