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 spac. 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.
Suddenly, those Grand Tourer conventions look very old.
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.
The new McLaren GT is a joy to drive. Because it’s light, stiff and has a glorious mid-mounted engine for ideal weight distribution. And because McLaren DNA flows through every part. The advanced Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system, for example, keeps the car safe and stable in all kinds of conditions. As with every McLaren, there’s a brake steer system too. Always ready to subtly slow the inside rear wheel to sharpen turn-in and reduce understeer – giving you the confidence to apply the power earlier in challenging twists and turns. There are hidden advantages, too – without the need for a traditional limited-slip differential, complexity and weight are minimised.
The new McLaren GT is influenced by the classic proportions of a Grand Tourer. But our relentless dedication to innovation touches every element. Bucking tradition, it’s mid-engined. And built around a lightweight carbon fibre chassis. So unlike conventional Grand Tourers, it isn’t heavy and cumbersome. In fact, it’s hundreds of kilograms lighter than most. Which means it goes and handles like a true McLaren. The innovations continue inside the cockpit. Where you’ll find our latest McLaren Infotainment System. A full length powered and glazed rear tailgate. An electrochromic panoramic roof that can provide five different levels of shade at the touch of a button. And hidden ambient lighting that adds stylish detail to the cabin. The new McLaren GT is packed with leaps forward. To take touring to whole new places.
The new McLaren GT introduces our latest infotainment system. Powerful and intuitive, its fast, fluid touchscreens are a breath of fresh air ¬ with sophisticated graphics inspired by private jets rather than the automotive world. Information is always clear and restrained. Which makes it ideal for long journeys or night driving. the whole experience is effortless, designed to feel as intuitive as using your tablet or smartphone. From the seven inch central touchscreen, you can control and tailor a host of technology and vehicle settings. Satellite navigation, Bluetooth, media streaming and digital radio are at your fingertips. So is the hidden-until-lit ambient lighting, dual zone climate control and air conditioning.
The McLaren 4.0 litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine is the beating heart of many or our incredible cars. Yet this one is different… Born to deliver smooth linear acceleration and flexibility. The key is 630Nm of torque produced from 5,500rpm to 6,500rpm. Available in a sustained relentless flow. Not in one frantic peak. Many components are totally unique to the new McLaren GT’s astonishing engine. Like the new aluminium pistons. And ultra-low inertia twin turbochargers. Unlocking more efficiency. Seamless power. And a fast response that feels relentless. Innovative packaging keeps its centre of gravity low for ultimate balance and handling. No other Grand Tourer has this depth of sheer supercar performance and all-day refinement at its heart.
