How would you spec your McLaren GT?
McLaren has lifted the wraps off the new GT, combining blistering supercar performance with grand touring practicality. Quite simply, it’s the most comfortable car McLaren has ever made. Not long after the car was announced to the world, McLaren has launched the GT’s online configurator so we can fantasize about being able to afford one.
Boot up the configurator and you’ll be presented with a choice of three specifications. Standard clothes the cabin in Nappa Leather throughout and "offers a sophisticated and aesthetically appealing atmosphere,” but comes with manually adjustable seats. Upgrade to the range-topping Luxe spec, however, and you get powered seats, lots of Aniline leather trim, and six different interior layouts. The mid-range Pioneer spec offers similar luxuries as Luxe but replaces the Alcantara headliner with a leather one.
Moving onto the exterior, there are no less than 30 color options. We opted for a stealthy Abyss Black finish combined with seven-spoke alloys and matching black brake calipers. We also added an MSO Gloss Carbon Fiber pack, an MSO Electrochromic Panoramic roof, and a Sports Exhaust to further enhance the exterior.
Inside, we opted for an all-black interior to complement the exterior. An optional Premium Pack adds a 12-speaker sound system, full LED headlights, a power opening and closing tailgate, cabin air purification, Vehicle Lift, Homelink, electrically folding heated door mirrors, and a luggage bay privacy over. Other options include an alarm upgrade, a vehicle tracking system, luggage retention strap, and MSO body colored keys. Naturally, we selected all of them.
McLaren doesn’t include pricing details for its configurator options, but you probably won’t be worried about that if you can afford the McLaren GT’s $210,000 starting price. Powering the McLaren GT is a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 producing 612 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque, enabling the gorgeous grand tourer to hit 0-62 mph in 3.1 seconds and a top speed of 203 mph.
