Overview

The McLaren is a supercar that was introduced in the 2017 Winter Update, along with the Volt Bike and ATV. It has previously been deemed very underwhelming by the player and had a lot of controversy relating to its price and performance. However, asimo3089 confirmed that the McLaren would soon indeed be getting a buff shortly after its release. In the Rocket Fuel Update, this buff has been implemented. The McLaren has been given a speed and handling rebalance to allow it to compete with the other supercars. This car is the fifth most expensive vehicle in the game and the second most expensive supercar, being more costly than the Lamborghini and Ferrari but still more affordable than the Bugatti at a price of $300,000. It's probably not a car for performance, but a car for good appearance, as some players said that they are more attracted to this than the Bugatti. However, some players also comment that they do not think that the McLaren is worth the $300,000 as it is slower than both the Lamborghini and the Ferrari, both of which are cheaper. Most people believe that the McLaren isnt worth its price.

Spawn

The McLaren's spawn was initially near the Water Tower, then was moved onto the bridge leading to the Museum.

Features

For its price, the McLaren is generally quite slow in comparison to other supercars. This is evident by its top speed and acceleration both being outclassed by the Ferrari (which has a lower top speed than Lamborghini). Handling also used to be bad, with bad turning and terrible drifting, but later updates improved the McLaren's handling and the handling is now considered much better. In addition, the car can sometimes be glitchy and has a tendency to bounce around uncontrollably, especially on more laggy servers.

Advantages Disadvantages
Higher acceleration than Lamborghini. Fairly expensive.
Faster than the Camaro, Pickup Truck, Monster Truck, SUV, Model3, and Mustang. Slowest Reverse speed out of all super cars.
Small size makes it hard to pop the McLaren’s tires. Even with its fast speed and acceleration, it is the slowest supercar in the game.
Best off-roading out of all super cars. If it hits a building or a car in a strange angle, the vehicle may start to spin rapidly and fling around the map like the Model3.
Best handling out of all supercars, tied with the Ferrari. Slow for its price.

Trivia

  • In the 2017 Winter Update thumbnail, the McLaren was actually called the "RoClaren", and some people still call it that to this day.
  • The McLaren was given a speed and acceleration buff three days after the release of the Winter Update, but wasn't enough according to the vast majority of the player base so another buff was made in the Rocket Fuel Update.
  • The McLaren used to spawn near the Water Tower, but now spawns at the bridge near the Jewelry Store.
  • The McLaren is based on the McLaren 720S.
  • This is the smallest supercar in the game.
  • The McLaren is the most heavily modified vehicle in the game by Badimo by far. They've changed properties of the car in nearly every update since release.
