So we're here right now with Rob
Melville and he is a very lucky man

because he is the Chief Designer for both
exterior and interior at Mclaren

automotive and some people have told me
from a Italian carmaker we won't mention

the name
[Ferrari] and that you have a very

enviable job because you have none of
the design baggage any other car maker has

your first car Mclaren the P1 how cool
is that

and then you went on and yeah you've
said you've had a bit of influence in

the 650s.
So let's
start at the front of car now this is a

really ignorant question but has to be asked
this is a 570 GT I mean how much does

this differ from the five 570s and many
of our our readers will already be

familiar with
[Rob] Well clearly the major
differences in the rear where 'S' was at

the flying buttresses reopen it seems
the engine or technical detail very very

pure small classical design than the ’S’.
Fundamentally though as a car on the way
handles ’S’ was all about the nimble

lightweight to drive this is still
fun to drive

bored now adds is this extra touring
space and has an extra luggage in the rear,

220 litres.
250 litres in the front more than Ford
Focus we have the glass hatch which opens

up
into touring deck like that opens

handles depend on which market you’re in
to which side opens curbside

loading
[John] I think terrifies me just
cracked a case just above here that just

break my heart
[MUSIC]
ok
it's has less downforce than a regular ’S’

[Rob]It has the same downforce
another key difference you'll see right

here at the end here at the tail this is
flicking almost Gurney flick

yeah this is 18 mil meters taller
than it is on the ’S’ because the flying

buttresses are no longer there ride to
extend this to keep the balance of the

car nose-to-tail on the interior you can see
the extended leather-trimmed into

that luggage space and volume was
talking about but really it's all about

the glass roof I think when you're in
there is feeling of openness, airiness

makes the car into drive is engaging you
fully aware of the environment around

you it's all about all the things that
work on the track with kept in the road

cars yeah but here we've added the sort
of romantic air this element used to

see back in the sixties and seventies of
the great GT’S we've brought back into

the modern market
[John] yeah i mean is it's quite incredible
in here when you do climb in still a bit of

a climb into the sills but yeah it
just is so light and airy in here it

just feels like the antithesis of a car
like this because normally there's very

now a window openings and you sort of
feel quite cocooned but this actually

works this is this but yeah it's glazed
area just makes it so much brighter in

here it's quite funny really
despite all the added comfort and luxury

in the car I mean this is still powered
by the monstrous twin-turbo 3.8 litre V8

[Rob] Absolutely still like a missile yeah
that's

still plenty quick enough to earn its
status as a real supercar as far as

design language guys just start think
you know what were based on is function

form and we will give nature for
inspiration and nature millions and

millions of years of evolution very
efficient forms but beautiful that's why

have the same beautiful yet functional
and for us this is just the start

as long as it functions and looks good
then that’s a McLaren I think we can

involve this and take it across the
ranges in the future you'll see some

surprises along the way into working on
upstairs but I can't tell you any more

than that right now.
[John] If I knew we could
just peek just around that corner there

up the stairs would find out [Rob] maybe next
time
