The “C” at the end of the name McLaren 540C almost seems like a demerit, as if it were the iPhone 5C and not the 5S that everyone wanted at the time. However, as a vehicle strewn with carbon fiber and a McLaren badge, it’s still an object of upmost desire
for the most of us. Endowed with a not at all shabby 533 horsepower that’s routed to the rear to carry a 2,888 pound mass, the 540C seems like a real winner on paper. Until you get to the formidable and proven competition that can potentially put the hurt on the baby Mac.
