        Def not a daily, I plan to get one my self but these cars are a reliability/maintenance night mare. This is probably a 4000 mile per year tops type of car. If you go on the Mac forums its just one catastrophy after the next with problems, thats why they have no resale value compared to lambos and ferraris.

        Hate to say this but the 1000+hp R8 latest gen is prolly more trouble free. That's why I'm tempting the R8 next but Mom told me "You go from Porsche to Audi?" Ughhh...speechless. lol

        If I listened to my mom regarding cars I'd be driving a used Civic.

        Absolutely not true. The 570 has proven to be very reliable. I put 9000 miles on mine last year without a single issue. I’ve always been a Ferrari guy but the McLaren won me over.

        They’re extremely reliable. Especially for an exotic.
