2020 McLaren GT

2020 McLaren GT

The new McLaren GT is a radically different kind of McLaren, a unique interpretation of a modern Grand Tourer that challenges the conventions of the category. Sleek, elegant and muscular, the superlight new GT is a compelling blend of beautiful design, high-quality innovative materials and exceptional refinement in combination with true supercar performance and the benchmark driving dynamics and engagement for which McLaren is renowned.

Positioned alongside the established Sports, Super and Ultimate Series families, this is a new McLaren for a new audience and provides an alternative to existing products in an expanding market segment. In re-imagining the spirit of traditional Grand Touring - long-distance driving in comfort, at higher speeds and with room for luggage - McLaren has also redefined the modern GT ownership experience with a car that is lighter, faster and more engaging than existing products in the segment, with greater space, comfort and usability.

Like all McLarens, the new McLaren GT has a carbon fibre structure that possesses exceptional strength and rigidity while enabling unparalleled driving dynamics and lightest-in-class kerbweight. At 1,530kg (DIN), the McLaren GT is more than 130kg lighter than its closest core competitor and quite literally hundreds of kilogrammes less than some other cars in the segment. And with 620PS from its 4.0-litre, twin-turbocharged McLaren V8 engine, the superlight new GT possesses a remarkable power-to-weight ratio of 405PS-per-tonne.

A new 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged engine produces 620PS. Designated M840TE, it further expands the family of McLaren V8 engines. Bespoke to the new GT, it has the immense power and torque and superior exhaust sound quality that are the hallmarks of a true Grand Tourer. Peak torque of 630Nm is produced between 5,500rpm and 6,500rpm, with more than 95% available from 3,000rpm to 7,250rpm.

The new engine is mated to a 7-speed SSG transmission to deliver linear, seamless and relentless acceleration. With a launch-control function optimising acceleration from a standing start, 0-100km/h (0-62mph) is achieved in only 3.2 seconds (0-60mph in 3.1 seconds), and 0-200km/h (0-124mph) in just 9.0 seconds. The maximum speed of the McLaren GT is 326km/h (203mph). The suspension, steering and brakes are all bespoke and optimised to provide an outstanding Grand Touring driving experience, with inherent balance, responsiveness and precision complemented by superior ride comfort to any other McLaren.

The suspension is a double-wishbone design in lightweight aluminium, paired with hydraulic dampers, an array of sensors and a powerful control unit to deliver Proactive Damping Control (PDC). Governed by the most sophisticated iteration yet of the pioneering Optimal Control Theory software algorithm developed for the Proactive Chassis Control suspension of the McLaren 720S, PDC uses inputs from sensors to 'read' the road ahead, interpreting what is likely to happen next and reacting predictively in just two milliseconds.

The choice of seven Luxe interiors give traditional elegance a contemporary McLaren twist. Perforated softgrain luxury leather seats are ribbed and embellished with a bespoke non-contrast Luxe stitch, with the three full-colour choices extending to Jet Black, Vintage Tan and Barolo, all with Jet Black SuperFabric® for the luggage area. These core themes can be paired with additional colours for a light and airy ambience: Jet Black with Porcelain, Vintage Tan with Porcelain and a deep Ink Blue with Porcelain, all with a Porcelain SuperFabric® luggage floor. The seventh Luxe interior specification combines Dove Grey softgrain luxury leather seats with a Dove Grey SuperFabric® luggage area.

The McLaren Vehicle Warranty covers the McLaren GT for three years from the date of purchase without mileage limitation. In addition, the paint surface is warranted for three years and perforation corrosion of the vehicle body for 10 years. The new GT is also eligible to be covered by the McLaren Extended Warranty, which can be purchased in 12- or 24-month periods to ensure the protection of a comprehensive McLaren warranty until the vehicle is 12 years old. Normal service intervals are one year or 15,000km (10,000 miles), whichever occurs first.

McLaren retailers worldwide have full details of the new McLaren GT and can advise on pricing and likely delivery times. Prices start at £163,00 in the UK, $210,000 in the USA and run from €198,000 in the EU.
