McLaren GT - grand tourer à la Woking with 620 PS

2020 McLaren GT: Everything You Need to Know

The 570 GT clearly taught it a lot; not only about how you might go about doing such a auto, but also that the market for it already exists among its patrons. That's one secretive, on-time development process that ought to make mid-engined Corvette engineers wince.

GT is the fourth model in McLaren's Track25 business plan that was announced previous year, following the Speedtail, 720S Spider and 600LT Spider. Hold it flat and the top speed is 326km/h. Chances are this won't be the last auto from Woking to wear the GT name. A full 95 percent of torque is delivered between 3,000 rpm and redline (7,250 rpm).

The good amount of trunk space has been achieved courtesy of the lowered engine and exhaust system as another 150 litres can be had up front - biggest on a McLaren.

The bespoke Carbon fibre MonoCell II-T monocoque, with carbon fibre rear upper structure and aluminium crash structures front and rear.

McLaren's racing heritage has always helped the British brand churn out some of the most exotic designs with the right dose of performances. Woking's limitations in this regard are long-established, and while it doesn't like to admit to them, the introduction of "industry-standard" HERE navigation mapping and real-time traffic information in the GT suggests it is finally taking the problem seriously.

McLaren is keen to point out that the GT is a light vehicle when compared to its intended opposition. The McLaren GT starts at $210,000 (about Php 11 million) without options. A lightweight aluminum, double-wishbone design gets hydraulic dampers for McLaren's Proactive Damping Control. Cabin features most sophisticated infotainment system to date, aluminum switches and controls, gloss black surrounds for the screen, window switches, gear-selection console and air vents.

Comfort is enhanced via a unique set of power-adjustable seats with heating, which have been optimised for long-distance travel thanks to extra padding and support in key areas.

"The new McLaren GT combines competition levels of performance with continent-crossing capability, wrapped in a handsome body and true to McLaren's ethos of designing superlight cars with a clear weight advantage over rivals", said McLaren Automotive chief executive Mike Flewitt.

It's the first McLaren road auto that puts comfort and practicality as main features.

When we think of McLaren, images of legendary racing cars and the ever-venerable McLaren F1 come to mind.

Also available as alternatives to the standard Nappa trims are cashmere (available towards the end of 2019), luxury leather, and Alcantara upholsteries.

Three drive modes - Comfort, Sport, and Track - offer control over just how compliant the ride is.

"Designed for distance, it provides the comfort and space expected of a Grand Tourer, but with a level of agility never experienced before in this segment".

Inside the vehicle, McLaren says the interior has been designed "to delight on longer journeys, but with all the essentials for focused, high-performance driving; the seating position, location of controls and forward visibility are as important here as they are in any McLaren".
