New McLaren GT makes its global debut

2020 McLaren GT: Everything You Need to Know

In fact, it would be physically impossible.

This is it. Following a number of teasers, McLaren has now unveiled the McLaren GT.

Enter the McLaren GT, which is defined as the company's first true Grand Tourer.

Built for comfortable cross-country trips and covering long distances instead of shaving miliseconds at the track, the GT is a huge deviation from the usual McLaren recipe.

The GT's interior is broadly similar to that of the 720S but, according to McLaren, has been fitted with soft-grain leather, six-colour ambient lighting and trim pieces created to "look like a piece of satin metal".

While the styling and aerodynamic elements might seem to be inspired by the hardcore Speedtail HyperGT, McLaren has made sure that the new GT gets its fair share of new equipment and underpinnings.

Also new on the McLaren GT is its infotainment system, claimed to be the most sophisticated unit till date by McLaren. With 570-litres of cargo space, it is indeed one of the most practical supercars in existence. A 12-speaker Bowers & Wilkins premium audio system with carbon-fiber subwoofer and Kevlar midrange speakers can also be added, if you don't think the engine noises are music enough. That means space for a golf bag or two pairs of 185cm skis, along with other bags. It is a soft-close function as standard and can even be operated electrically. Under the rear boot floor lies McLaren's stalwart 4.0 litre twin-turbocharged V8, redeveloped for this application to deliver 620 PS at 7,500 rpm and 630 Nm of torque from 5,500 to 6,500 rpm, with more than 95% of that torque available from 3,000 rpm to 7,250 rpm. Between 3000-7250rpm it produces 95 percent of its torque output, or nearly 600Nm, through the seven-speed automatic. According to McLaren, the GT can do 0-60 in just 3.1 seconds, plus hit 203 miles per hour.

"The new McLaren GT combines competition levels of performance with continent-crossing capability, wrapped in a lovely body and true to McLaren's ethos of designing superlight cars with a clear weight advantage over rivals". Suspension, steering and brakes are all bespoke and optimized to provide unforgettable driving experience of a Grand Tourer. If its name isn't already indicative of its goal, the GT serves to be McLaren's new Grand Touring model.

Despite a 0-200km/h sprint in under 10 seconds, it's a plush cruiser. It also features selectable driving modes that can give it a bit more cornering bite should the driver be so inclined. The latter has been optimized at lower speeds for everyday ease of use. Ground clearance is a "tall" 110mm, or up to 130mm with optional electric lift, and the approach and departure angles have been designed so that speed humps don't need to be tackled from obtuse angles. They're available in Nappa leather as standard with luxury leather, Cashmere and Alcantara options available. Through the seven-inch portrait touchscreen, the system is said to be among the fastest in any vehicle, with Here navigation mapping, real-time traffic data and integrated controls for the climate control. For sky gazers, the solid roof can be optioned to fit a large electrochromatic glazed ceiling.
