The Sports Series is all about everyday livability by providing a certain level of comfort and refinement, whilst taking plenty of the technological advances made in the likes of the LT and P1 from the Super and Ultimate Series respectively and distilling them for a heavily road focused car. With a 3. Along with the breathtaking performance, pinpoint steering, and sense of control that makes driving absolute fun, is a level of comfort that defies its supercar looks.
Powered by a twin-turbo 3. So how does the S fare in scale form? TopSpeed Models were kind enough to send me this sample for review, but rest assured, this will be up to my usual non-biased standards! Think of them as a comparable level to GT Spirit. The orange version is the real stand out model for me as the contrasting orange and black carbon suits the car really well, although there is something to be said about the classy looking black version with that lovely interior!
Both models are limited to pieces each and this is reflected on the numbered plaque on the underside of the model. The more foam material between the model and any potential damage the better, but this takes the biscuit I reckon. I deeply respect any company that listens to those that actually buy and enjoy the models, so kudos to them! Smaller packaging would surely reduce the shipping costs per model, so it would be nice if this saving was either passed onto the collector, or even poured into improving the models themselves?
The base does look good and would look great with the model sitting atop it inside one of their new display cases. Looking at the model in isolation, it looks rather nice.
The overall shape and features seem close to the real car. The paint quality is very nice and the model looks stunning on display. The Sport Forged Stealth wheels are pretty spot on. The matching McLaren Orange calipers with the McLaren logo are done well, plus the discs themselves look fairly realistic. The tyre tread coming round into the sidewalls adds to the realism.
Regarding those QC issues mentioned earlier, take a look at the inside edges of the wheelarches - both the edges of the carbon fibre side skirts and the orange paintwork have a rough finish. Moving a bit further up now and the rear lights are present and correct. Front lights are the current signature McLaren logo and are pretty good on the whole. Perhaps this is a case of doing nothing is better than doing something poorly executed? The same goes for the S logo on the side skirts, but it looks good nonetheless.
The rear deck has plenty of carbon fibre and mesh galore! The subtle, yet noticeable rear lip spoiler works very well on this car and TopSpeed have replicated it nicely here - I just love how it blends into the structure of the bumper below it!
The roof, wing mirrors, side skirts, rear deck, side blades, those awesome looking strakes cut into the doors feeding air into the intakes behind the side blades and the air scoops in the front bumper.
I did notice the folds and cuts in the carbon on the door mirrors to mold it around the shape of the mirror itself. The front bumper reveals one of the 3 cameras installed as part of the Track Telemetry pack the other 2 being in the cabin and rear bumper and the carbon fibre on the front intakes is just divine!
The top of the dashboard and instrument binnacle match the real car and the simple floating centre console is very nicely done, featuring air vents, carbon fibre surround and nicely detailed navigation graphics.
It really breaks up the black monotony of the cabin! Perhaps a tip for future releases I hope?! The little red seatbelt clips are also a nice touch. The paint finish on the flat-bottomed steering wheel definitely needs improving, but as with the navigation graphics the speedometer is nice and clear along with the great looking and properly centered McLaren logo on the steering wheel.
Finally, flipping the model over reveals the 1 of limited edition plaque and also that awesome looking diffuser. So what do I think of this model? Overall this McLaren S TS would be a worthy addition to any collection and is a must for anyone who collects supercars, as make no mistake, even though McLaren put this in their Sports Series it packs a supercar punch!
I thoroughly enjoyed reviewing this model and the colour constantly attracts your attention in any lineup of models. Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed it!
