Watch: McLaren 570S, Audi R8 V10 & 911 Turbo Cruise The Scottish Highlands

Watch a trio of supercars, including a McLaren 570S, Audi R8 V10 Plus, and Porsche 911 Turbo, cruising around in the north of Scotland.

When choosing a reasonable entry-level supercar to purchase, there are quite a few options to go through. If we’re sticking below the $200,000 mark, there are three that really come to mind: the McLaren 570S, the Audi R8, and the Porsche 911 Turbo.

Top Gear recently gave their take on the three possible European options, pitting the sole British entry-level supercar against its German rivals. All three cars are certainly amazing examples of automotive engineering, but which one is the best?

The McLaren is obviously a clear favorite. We love McLaren for never compromising performance for luxury, and it shows in the 570S. A twin-turbocharged 3.8-L V8 engine produces 562 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque. Zero to sixty is done in just 3.1 seconds on its way to a top speed of 204 mph.

On top of that, the car only weighs 3,200 lbs thanks to extensive use of carbon fiber. This is a car designed to go fast and look damn good doing it.

Next, we have the Audi R8. The one Top Gear tests is the R8 V10 Plus, the most powerful R8 ever made. It’s naturally aspirated 5.2-L V10 engine produces 602 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque, allowing it to go from zero to sixty in just 3.2 seconds. Power is routed through Audi’s 7-speed dual-clutch to all four wheels all the time, and it has a lot of clever technology to make even the most amateur of drivers into a speed demon.

Finally, the Porsche 911 Turbo. Described in the video as the first ever “everyday” supercar, the 911 Turbo has features like a large windscreen and slightly more upright position to let the driver see more of the road. It also has a reasonably spacious front trunk (for a supercar) and can even be had for a mere $161,000.

It also can go fast. Zero to sixty is measured at 3.0 seconds with a top speed of 199 mph. It also has the benefits of AWD, meaning it might not kill you to drive in the winter.

Which car you choose says a lot about you. For the speed demon, the McLaren 570S is your car. For the common millionaire, the 911 Turbo S. And for someone who has never driven a fast car in their life, the R8. You can’t go wrong with any of these cars.
