Poised and Ready
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.
One of the key things that makes the 720S Spider so easy to drive on road or track is the level of visibility it offers you. In fact, part of the central philosophy behind the car was to create the maximum possible visibility. The advanced carbon fibre composite structure enables ultra-slim A-pillars and compact buttresses. The buttresses themselves arent simply a distinctive feature. They also serve a purpose. Topped with glazed floating elements, they direct air over the tonneau, improving powertrain cooling and increasing downforce. For an all-round cockpit view thats never before been seen in a convertible supercar.
Time for what you love, space for what you need
Our pioneering design gives the new McLaren GT a unique beauty and balance. This is a car that invites you to cross continents in refined, spacious surroundings. But it also has the focused, purposeful aura of every McLaren. Telling the visual story of the cars dynamics and performance that traditional Grand Tourers simply cant match.
A new kind of Grand Touring
The new McLaren GT is a joy to drive. Because its 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, theres 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 perfect companion
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.
No room for compromise
When youre crossing countries and covering the miles, you need space. For luggage. For leisure gear. The new McLaren GT has a roomy luggage bay that can be beautifully trimmed in tough and durable SuperFabric® or leather and is made possible by the cars uniquely engineered upper structure. Featuring a flowing, full-length glazed tailgate, it can easily accommodate two sets of skis. Or a guitar. Or even a full bag of golf clubs. In other words, all the things you need with you when touring. Access is effortless, opened at the touch of a button. It has a soft close function, too. And a special Sound and Solar Film interlayer in the glass to reduce glare and noise.
