The new McLaren GT took to the famous Goodwood hill. The car’s global dynamic debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed was an opportunity for it to be seen, and admired, by thousands.
The McLaren of Grand Tourers – McLaren’s modern interpretation of the classic GT – was revealed online earlier this year. Superlight, yet supremely comfortable, the GT is a blissful symphony of luxury and, when it comes to performance, lunacy.
Powered by a 620PS 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine, supercar performance is inevitable. The GT accelerates from 0-62mph in a blistering 3.2 seconds and on to a top speed of 203mph. And yet… it can still carry up to 570 litres of luggage – certainly enough for a grand tour for two people.
The interior showcases the luxury, touring aspect of the GT, with luxurious trim options including Nappa leather, softgrain leather or Alcantara®, and seats unique to the McLaren GT that are designed for long distance comfort.
The luggage bay can also be trimmed with SuperFabric®, developed to be resistant to stains, cuts, nicks and abrasions, as well as being breathable, easy to clean and quick to dry. The McLaren GT is, then, a usable supercar.
The infotainment system developed for the new GT is the company’s most sophisticated to date, featuring industry-standard HERE® navigation and real-time traffic information.
If you like to really get in to your music on your grand tour, it can also be linked to an optional 12-speaker Bowers & Wilkins premium audio system.
The McLaren GT is priced from £163,000 on the road. For more information and to configure your own, head over to the McLaren website.
