McLaren Unveils New GT Supercar & It’s a 203mph, $210K Work of Art

McLaren GT

Add in the additional storage areas in the auto and you have a combined total of over 20 cubic feet of cargo space.

McLaren will be mindful of such cars, obviously - Crewe's way of doing things is plainly held in high esteem in Surrey - but its own Grand Tourer claims to occupy space that no 2.2-tonne Bentley could ever reach. Rather than being a Sports, Super, or Ultimate Series vehicle, the 2020 GT stands alone. Whether that eventually mean the expansion into a fourth category, McLaren is so far only teasing about - it'll likely depend on just how well the GT is received. The GT is also the first McLaren to get the automaker's new MonoCell II-T carbon-fiber tub. However the rear section has been expanded to accommodate the sort of luggage two people might want for a GT adventure. Two pairs of 185cm skis accompanied by luggage can be carried easily.

It's still a lightweight auto, mind. Speaking of which, the McLaren GT gets a new & bespoke 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine (M840TE) which puts out 620bhp and 630Nm of torque between 5,500-6,500rpm. Power-to-weight ratio clocks in at 399 hp per ton.

As you'd expect, that makes this a fast vehicle.

But to ensure the GT can offer make long-distance treks as tranquil as possible, 95 per cent of the peak torque comes in big lazy lumps from as low in the rev range as 3,000rpm. 0-100 is dealt with in 3.1sec, while top speed is 326kph. Top speed is 203 miles per hour.

Enter the McLaren GT, which is defined as the company's first true Grand Tourer.

The vehicle has a lightweight aluminium double wishbone suspension design with hydraulic dampers to deliver Proactive Damping Control.

Portland Trail Blazers vs. Golden State Warriors, 5/16/19 NBA Predictions
Stephen Curry erupted for 36 points in Game 1, leading the Warriors to a 116-94 victory. Fortunately, Golden State is well-stocked to withstand his absence.

The GT has 20-inch wheels in the front and 21-inch wheels in the rear.

That impression is a outcome of the GT's greater length - based on the 720S, it's fully 153mm longer than the Sports Series model - alongside a new design that certainly accentuates it.

Inside, there's a combination of familiar and new. Inside, the GT gets streamlined, electrically adjusted and heated seats which are claimed to be optimised for long-distance comfort, with the ideal amount of padding and shoulder and back support in combination with superb lateral control. Buyers can also opt between a gloss black roof, a roof with a tinted glass panel, and the desirable MSO Electrochromic Panoramic roof.

Hidden in ambient lighting is the most sophisticated McLaren infotainment system to date. It's said to be McLaren's fastest system yet. There's a 12.3-inch display in front of the driver, with customizable graphics.

Options include soft grain luxury leather or Alcantara seats instead of the standard Nappa leather trim.

In fact, people at McLaren think that the GT should be an attractive choice for auto enthusiasts in Asia needing an easy driving experience to cope with conditions that aren't particularly the same with those in Europe.

The 2020 McLaren GT is available to order now, priced from $210,000. Despite this, the McLaren GT takes its inspiration from one of the best GTs-and indeed best Ferraris-of all time, the 1959 Ferrari 250 GT SWB.
