All-new McLaren GT Marks a Different Chapter for the Brand

2020 McLaren GT: Everything You Need to Know 2020 McLaren GT Examined Up Close In Top Gear Video Tour

Surprised? McLaren only revealed its plans for a new grand touring model at the Geneva Auto Show in March. Two months later, the vehicle sits before you.

The McLaren GT is the fourth new model introduced under the McLaren Track25 business plan set out by CEO Mike Flewitt previous year. And now the brand has unveiled its latest offering in the form of the 2020 McLaren GT which is said to be a spiritual successor of the 570GT. One other detail of note regarding this motor is how McLaren explains the engine has more than 95 percent of its peak torque available between 3,000 and 7,250 rpm - certainly something that will help towards being able to carry the car's weight easily.

A soft-bodied Grand Tourer might seem like a stretch for an automaker formed around a Formula 1 race team and the world's first hypercar, but the 2020 McLaren GT aims to redefine just what a GT is. A further 150-litres of storage at the front of the auto means that it can hold a total of 570 litres of luggage. It all starts under the skin, with the carbon fibre MonoCell II-T (for Touring) monocoque gaining a lightweight rear upper structure. The design is much less overtly aggressive than the other models, with more body-coloured bodywork and less contrasting elements giving the auto a calmer, more elegant appearance. Woking's limitations in this regard are long-established, and while it doesn't like to admit to them, the introduction of "industry-standard" HERE navigation mapping and real-time traffic information in the GT suggests it is finally taking the problem seriously.

The Top Gear team had a chance to take a close look at the McLaren GT, as seen in the video above and screengrabs below.

In order to do that, McLaren has created a auto that is its own distinct product, separate from its Sports, Super and Ultimate Series of vehicles.

Interestingly, the GT doesn't get the Proactive Chassis Control cross-linked damping that gives the 720S otherworldly levels of ride comfort.

'The new McLaren GT combines competition levels of performance with continent-crossing capability, wrapped in a attractive body and true to McLaren's ethos of designing superlight cars with a clear weight advantage over rivals, ' he said.

The streamlined, power adjustable and heated seats are unique to the McLaren GT, with optimized padding and support for long-distance comfort. There are also a number of active dynamics handling modes - Comfort, Sport and Track.

'Designed for distance, it provides the comfort and space expected of a Grand Tourer, but with a level of agility never experienced before in this segment. The McLaren GT has reduced cabin noise courtesy of the special engine mounts and uses a suspension system based on the 720S that automatically detects the roads ahead and adjusts the damper settings in just two milliseconds. By the end of this year, Cashmere will be available and will the first time to be used on any production vehicle.
