Default McLaren GT

So, McLaren has released another car. This time it's called the GT...

-4-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine
-10 litres more luggage space than in a Volvo V90 estate
-New interior finishes, including an industry-first application of cashmere
-611bhp (99bhp less than the 720S), with 465lb ft of torque (103lb ft less than the 720S) available between 5500 and 6500rpm
-0 to 62mph in 3.2sec
-0 to 124mph in 9.0sec
-top speed of 203mph
-weight of 1530kg (less than a DB11 or Carrera 4S)
-traditional double wishbone suspension system borrowed from the Sports Series models
-first deliveries to customers due before the end of this year
-convertible could be/is on the way

























And now, for a video of it...

McLaren's been on my lottery win list ever since the MP4-12C Spider. Looks like those things are still going for over 120k used. Damn.

The 720s is my current favorite looker though. And its insane fast too.

I will be very interested to see how thing does against the other well established rivals it now finds itself in company with. For me personally if I've got a blank check and a grand tourer on my brain its always gonna be Aston. But, if I should happen to be a diehard McLaren brand loyalist, this is a very appealing option to add to my garage next to my 720s or 600LT.

most likely the same engine as 720S just crazy detuned . It will probably put down over 600hp to the wheels

You know Parker will be reviewing one as soon as possible on Vehicle Virgins.

McLaren has to love him right now. They'll probably fly him out to Europe.

With that rear decklid open its hard to even imagine there's still an engine back there. I just hope they have really good heat shielding back there.

Amazing. Nothing for the consumer market for decades, and now more models than I can keep track of. Impressive feat, and spectacular cars.

Parker talks about the McLaren GT. He expects to be invited to the launch.

Cashmere seats are an option.

He puts plates on his Mercedes after he gets a ticket first and then talks about the McLaren GT.

Really really miss the way his channel used to be. Where he would make videos on 5 things he loved about cars, and esp 5 honest things he hated about cars. Esp the ones he owned.

His channel has turned into nothing more than click bait titles and car deliveries of his “friends”
