Have you ever wondered what it might be like to drive a McLaren on ice? 

McLaren is offering the chance to experience the 570S on a frozen lake 200 miles north of the Arctic Circle, in the ultimate test of both car and driver. Video of the 570S to the Arctic Circle, where it was put through its paces on snow and ice.

2017 McLaren 570S is a sports car designed and manufactured by McLaren Automotive. The car is powered by a new iteration of the 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine already used in the McLaren 650S and P1, designated M838T E with thirty percent of the parts redesigned. Arranged in the car as a rear-mid engine configuration, it delivers 562 brake horsepower (419 kW) through a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox. A total weight of 1,313 kilograms (2,895 lb) gives the 570S a power to weight ratio of 428 brake horsepower (319 kW) per tonne, delivering a fuel economy of 25.5 miles per imperial gallon (11.1 L/100 km; 21.2 mpg‑US) and CO2 emissions of 258 g/km.

McLaren focused on delivering "day-to-day usability and driveability" against the most sporting model options in its range with increased luggage space, greater interior storage and leather upholstery options.
