« Back McLaren GT
McLaren seem to be on a roll at the moment, with the incredible 720S beating all-comers in the supercar field and the 600LT being the track focused supercar of choice.
So with those bases covered, McLaren decided that they wanted to take on the Grand Tourers of the supercar scene, like the Aston Martin DB11 and Bentley Continental GT.
Step forward the McLaren GT – their most comfort-based car ever, designed to cross continents with ease, equipped with a large boot area for all your luggage, great visibility and a less raucous exhaust.
But don’t for one second think that those attributes mean the GT isn’t still fiercely quick – it’s still a McLaren after all.
The 4.0 litre twin turbo V8 from the 720S is reworked to have less power and torque at 612bhp and 630Nm, but with a smoother power band and less frenetic delivery.
And thanks to still having that carbon tub keeping the weight to just over 1400kg, it can still hit 62mph in 3.2 seconds and cruise on to 203mph.
McLaren has certainly done their Grand Tourer a little differently to the competition, but it means you can have everything you want – crazy supercar looks with proper GT credentials. Another home run by the team from Woking!
