Remember that episode of The Simpsons where Marge buys a Chanel dress? To impress newly acquired wealthy friends, she keeps making alterations to change the look, producing a whole series of outfits from the same piece of pink cloth. That’s basically how the highest of the high-end automakers work: They create one or two great cars, amortize the R&D costs over several years and keep things interesting by producing an endless series of variations on the core models.
For McLaren, the original Chanel is McLaren’s excellent 650S. The latest spinoff is the 570GT, the supercar it will reveal at the Geneva Motor Show next week.
