Aimed at a new audience, the McLaren GT is the first Grand Tourer in the English carmaker’s supercar stable, sharing DNA with the Speedtail combining a lightweight body and carbon-fiber chassis with a luxurious interior and room for over 20 cu. ft. of storage. With room for bags and skis, the luggage bay is accessed via a front-hinged full-length tailgate, while buyers will also enjoy McLaren’s new infotainment system when cruising cross country.
Powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 rated at 612 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque, the GT can sprint to 62 mph in 3.2 seconds, and reach a top speed of 203 mph. Fuel economy is rated at 15/21/17 mpg city/highway/combined, with a range of just under 400 miles on a single tank of gas.
A new Proactive Damping Control suspension combined with hydraulic steering makes for an exceptionally comfortable ride, while braking and steering have been optimized for low-speed driving to ensure it’s a breeze to drive around town before opening up on the highway.
Available to order now priced from $210,000, deliveries of the 2020 McLaren GT will begin at the end of 2019.
