"In response to numerous requests to demonstrate the lift system in the McLaren 650S, here's an example showing how you can save the carbon fibre front splitter on nasty inclines with the front raising by 6cms and the rear by 4.8cm."

Nice feature - but it is a lot simpler on the Konigsegg One:1 - it's just one button to press.

Yes it must be said McLaren did do their best to make it hilariously complicated. However the flip side is having the ability to raise the entire car front and rear to properly navigate tricky areas which otherwise in these cars is a serious challenge.

I suppose it's not something you need to do all the time, if itwas just a button on people would be complaining about an unnecessary button cluttering up the dashboard!

It's just a button on the Huracan and i like it. Not all the time but you need to use it pretty often, you know how they say: "Better safe than sorry!"

Looks quite complicated for on the move obstacles like speed bumps, the Speciale system is also just one button and pretty quick to rise.

But where's the fun in that?

There is a short cut to the vehicle lifter

Lifter can be engaged without going into the car menu too, so no need for a complicated flicking through the menu first... (push the menu/settings lever up and hold it for about 2 seconds until you hear a DING, then press it up again to lift the car (or down to put it back down if it's up)).

Well it means I can pull off the duel carriageway into my local petrol station (ramped) without having to stop and wait for the lift kit to be 'deployed' lol, also less chance of looking like a pillock/holding people up and someone running into the back of me... :) plenty fun in that.

Also I don't see how a complicated lift system can be a good thing (I'm not sure it is I'm just going on comments above). A few years down the line when your warranty is out and it fails, you'll be wishing it was simple.

The 675lt will just have the same system as fitted to the 650s. I'm tempted to not bother with it, or perhaps just ask for a front only set up to save weight.

Also tempted to just ask for the 'no cost' air con to be supplied in a cardboard box in case I ever sell it.
