Grand Touring will never be the same again. The new superlight McLaren GT reimagines the breed. And the results are extraordinary. Strikingly beautiful. Engineered for continent-crossing capability. With an engaging yet comfortable ride. And generous luggage space. In the new McLaren GT, these key ingredients are reinvented and applied in new, innovative ways. Then combined with power and performance that is undiluted McLaren. To create the lightest, quickest accelerating car in its class. A Grand Tourer has never been so thrilling. So refined. So engaging.
The new McLaren GT’s sweeping, sculpted profile isn’t simply our interpretation of what a Grand Tourer can be. But what it should be. Driven by our ‘everything for a reason’ design philosophy. Fuelled by the spirit of innovation. It starts at the core, with a bespoke MonoCell II-T carbon fibre chassis for maximum strength but minimum weight – perfect for touring with power, speed and efficiency. Our iconic Dihedral doors are unique in the class, too. While the car’s versatile, spacious and elegant form is a model of aerodynamic efficiency. This is a Grand Tourer designed for living. Not retiring.
As a rule, Grand Tourers are comfortable. Insulating. Which often means they’re also heavy and unresponsive. Not to mention blunt when it comes to handling and driver engagement. The new McLaren GT makes that rule obsolete. Blisteringly quick and responsive, it injects adrenalin and racing DNA into the class. And it does all of this while delivering a supremely refined ride. The innovative engineering that makes the new McLaren GT a true McLaren also makes it a Grand Tourer like no other. Pioneering refinements like our Proactive Damping Control suspension. Just like you, this advanced system constantly analyses road conditions to adapt – predictively. And learns from every journey you make. The result? Ride comfort and handling precision that’s perfectly optimised. Every moment. On every journey. For the first time in a Grand Tourer, you can have it all.
Lots of weight. And wood. You’ll usually find both inside a conventional Grand Tourer. But at McLaren, we don’t believe that luxury has to come with a walnut veneer. So in the new McLaren GT, our design team have reimagined luxury. For a new era. Clutter and weight have been banished. Honed elegance is the design ethos. Light and space rules. Everything you touch is beautifully made from ultimate quality, pioneering materials. There’s world-class softgrain leather. solid aluminium. And the option of soft, tactile Cashmere. Together, it creates a refined, welcoming environment – alive with technology, punctuated with light.
It’s a fine balance. Between power and weight. The ratio has to be right. Often in the Grand Tourer class, the scales tip in the wrong direction. Big front-engine cars are the norm. And they’re normally heavy… adding even more weight every time they up the power. The new McLaren GT resets the scales thanks to hundreds of kilograms of honed, weight saving design. At 1530kg, it is perfectly balanced, race-bred mid-engine layout. The car’s new V8 delivers immense power and torque, a thrilling exhaust note and class-leading fuel efficiency. With a low centre of gravity for exceptional agility and a stable ride. Power and weight, in perfect balance.
