McLaren’s 60th-anniversary celebrations at the 2023 Goodwood Festival of Speed culminated in the Solus GT’s victory in the Timed Shootout Final. The McLaren Factory Driver, Marvin Kirchhöfer, impressed spectators with a blazing run of 45.342 seconds on the 1.16-mile Hillclimb, securing McLaren’s second Timed Shootout win in three years.
The Solus GT, originally created for the Gran Turismo SPORT video game and now brought to life, will see only 25 customer cars built. Powered by a 5.2-litre V10 engine producing 830bhp, it boasts a weight of less than 2,205 lbs and a powerful aerodynamic package, delivering an exceptional level of performance.
In addition to the Solus GT’s success, the McLaren 750S supercar also made its public dynamic debut at the Festival, showcasing its remarkable capabilities with thrilling high-speed runs throughout the weekend.
