Is This the Ultimate Grand Touring Machine?
It’s time for you to feast your eyes on the new McLaren supercar, the GT. The car has a mid-engine 4.0-liter twin turbo V8 that makes 612 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque. The model is a bit longer and more elegant than the other models from the brand.
The car is a bit more usable as an everyday vehicle, too. It sits up a little higher than the other supercars in McLaren’s lineup and offers segment-leading cabin refinement, according to the company. It also comes with a reasonably generous 14.8 cubic feet of cargo space. Add in the additional storage areas in the car and you have a combined total of over 20 cubic feet of cargo space.
The car isn’t some plush boat, though. It’s made for speed and impressive performance. The car features a MonoCell II-T monocoque. The rear upper portion of the structure is made of carbon fiber. It can do 124 mph in nine seconds flat and has a top speed of 203 mph.
The McLaren GT is the fourth model to come out of the company’s Track25 business plan. The company is taking orders for the car immediately. It costs $210,000. Judging by the performance of the car and the new infotainment system for the car and its high-quality interior materials, including Nappa leather and Alcantara, the price tag is more than warranted.
