McLaren is best known for producing exotic sports cars that rival Ferraris and Lamborghinis. However, unless you have easy access to a track on a regular basis, having an exotic supercar for your daily duties or long distance cruises don’t make a whole lot of sense.
Entering into new territory, British automaker introduces its first grand tourer, the McLaren GT. Designed to compete with the Bentley Continental GT, Aston Martin DB11, and the Mercedes-AMG S63 Coupe that can travel long distances with the combination of speed, style, and comfort, the new McLaren promises to keep its occupants fresh and relaxed even after devouring continents.
The mid-engined McLaren GT breaks the mold of most grand tourers being front-engined, and comes with a twin-turbo V8 engine that produces 620 horsepower, sprinting from 0 to 62 in just 3.2 seconds. While the interior cabin is still designed just for two, there is more interior and luggage space than most other McLaren models. It also features a 12-speaker Bowers & Wilkins premium sound system as well as storage not only in the front, but in the rear. This way, you can bring with you a set of clubs or a suitcase, something that was thought of as being an impossibility for a mid-engined performance vehicle.
