New McLaren GT adds a grand tourer to supercar brand lineup


Inside, the seats are unique to the GT and engineered for long-distance comfort, McLaren said. The 7-inch touch-screen infotainment system is “the company’s most sophisticated to date,” McLaren said.

The GT also gets a Here navigation and traffic information system.

Nappa leather is standard but the automaker said customers can opt for soft-grain leather or Alcantara. McLaren said cashmere will be available as a choice by year end.

As with the 720S Spider, a glazed, electrochromic roof panel will be an option on the GT, which will allow the roof to darken by pressing a button.

With two storage areas — behind the seats and in the front of the vehicle — the GT has 20.1 cubic feet of cargo space. There’s enough space in the rear luggage bay for a bag of golf clubs.

The GT’s styling is an evolution of McLaren’s latest design. At more than 15 feet long, it’s longer than any nameplate in the Sports or Super series, McLaren noted, and has a ground clearance of 4.3 inches. If the lift is enabled, that figure bumps up to 5.1 inches.

In the rear, there are taillights that look similar to the Speedtail’s, a rear wing integrated into the body and a large dual exhaust system.

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

McLaren said GT deliveries will begin by year end. It starts at $210,000, excluding shipping, which will be determined later. Based on the price, the GT will slot above the 570GT and 570S of the Sports Series but below the 720S and 720S Spider of the Super Series.
