Woking, England - When it comes to building sports cars, McLaren tends to take the uncompromised route, with speed and dynamics taking centre stage, but now the British carmaker has built something for those wanting more everyday usability.
Enter the McLaren GT, which is defined as the company’s first true Grand Tourer.
Not only can it cross countries in comfort, but it can also take your sporting kit, the 420 litre rear luggage compartment designed to fit a golf bag or skis and when it’s time to embark on that epic road trip, it will swallow a decent amount of luggage. Owners can also stash 150 litres of kit in the ‘frunk’ upfront.
Even the low-speed steering and braking settings have been optimised for everyday use, as has the ride height and ground clearances.
It might be more usable than other McLarens, but the GT is also designed to be more dynamic than the average GT car, and to that end it sports a lightweight MonoCell II-T carbon fibre structure, aluminium body panels and rear-mounted 456kW, 630Nm 4-litre twin-turbo V8.
