Overview

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.  

It turns out you can have it all

As a rule, Grand Tourers are comfortable. Insulating. Which often means theyre 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 thats perfectly optimised. Every moment. On every journey. For the first time in a Grand Tourer, you can have it all.  

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.  

Innovation, on tour.

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, its mid-engined. And built around a lightweight carbon fibre chassis. So unlike conventional Grand Tourers, it isnt heavy and cumbersome. In fact, its hundreds of kilograms lighter than most. Which means it goes and handles like a true McLaren. The innovations continue inside the cockpit. Where youll 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.

Cool. Calm. Composed

When speeds climb and the road vanishes into the horizon, the new McLaren GT reveals a key strength Its straight line stability is outstanding. Inspiring confidence as the scenery flashes by. Unique rear axle geometry works with the fixed rear wing and rear diffuser to ensure poise and precision. True to the spirit of McLaren, aerodynamics unlock performance. Airflow is prevented from wrapping around the rear bodywork, which improves aero efficiency and reduces drag. And allows the new McLaren GT to power across continents with arrow-straight stability.  

Ferocity, refined

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 GTs 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.
