At this year’s Festival of Speed, the new McLaren GT toured the Goodwood estate for its global  debut in front of an audience of thousands.

The McLaren GT completed five hill runs throughout the afternoon with Le Mans class-winner Jonny Kane and GT racer Ollie Millroy drive most of them.  McLaren’s modern interpretation of the classic GT  was revealed online on May 15. 2019, but had not been unveiled to the public.

Super light, yet supremely comfortable, the McLaren GT is powered by a 612 HP 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine, providing supercar performance. It accelerates from  0-60mph in 3.2 seconds and on to a top speed of over 200 MPH.  The GT part?  The new McLaren GT can carry up to 20 cubic feet of luggage – enough for a grand tour for two people.

The McLaren GT also performs on the inside 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’s interior also features hidden-until-lit ambient lighting and the option of an electrochromic glazed panel to enhance ambience in the cabin, which is also trimmed with machined and knurled aluminium switches and controls.

The infotainment system developed for the new McLaren GT is the company’s most sophisticated to date, meaning less fiddling with buttons gives you more time for conversation with your lucky passenger.  All alone?  12-speaker Bowers & Wilkins premium audio system is money well spent to surround yourself with Iron Maiden, et.al. The McLaren GT is priced from $210,000, but pop for that stain-resistant fabric in case the cabernet leaks.

Can’t wait to have a go in one of these.

The company has defined product families: Sports Series, Super Series, Ultimate Series and Motorsport which are retailed through over 80 retailers in more than 30 markets around the world.  Their website below.
