There we were strolling down Marshall Street, Edinburgh in search of Elephants when without wanting this object of desire pulled up beside us in traffic.
I immediately dropped to my knees. Not in supplication but to get a better angle of this green machine from Britain’s most exotic (really the only) supercar manufacturer, McLaren.
Perhaps the streets of Edinburgh are crawling with 570Ss, ‘The affordable McLaren’. Starting at around a quarter of a million Australian dollars I am sure they are a popular choice for the narrow streets and heavy traffic.
Tongue-in-cheek aside, the 570S is a beautiful creation giving those Italian machines solid competition in both style and engineering.
This is only ever the third McLaren I have personally seen in the wild anywhere in the world and this time I was just lucky to have been holding my camera while looking for Elephants on Marshall Street.
