It’s the most practical mid-engined supercar on the market

The McLaren GT is the company’s first stand-alone grand touring sports car. A spiritual successor to the 570GT, which is based on the 570S, the GT is essentially a two-door sports car with enhanced luggage room. But it’s also grand tourer with a mid-engined layout, a significant departure from the traditional design with the engine in the front. McLaren describes the GT as the most practical mid-engined vehicle on the market.

The fourth new model in the McLaren Track25 business plan, the GT draws inspiration from other McLaren models design-wise, but it features a more straightforward, more luxurious interior created with grand touring customers in mind. Under the hood, it shares the 4.0-liter V-8 engine with the 720S, but output and performance are bit lower. But it’s the rear-mounted trunk that sets the GT apart by adding almost 15 cubic feet of luggage room atop the V-8 engine. Let’s find out more about that in the review below.

2020 McLaren Verdant Theme GT by MSO

2020 McLaren Verdant Theme GT by MSO

Green never looked this good

The McLaren 765LT is getting all the deserved shine today, but that doesn’t mean we should sleep on the other model that the British automaker unveiled as part of its Geneva Motor Show offering.

The McLaren GT Verdant Theme by MSO isn’t an entirely new model as it is based on McLaren’s showstopping GT supercar. Where it stands out is the level of customization it received from MSO, McLaren’s in-house personalization department.

Certainly, MSO’s work on the GT speaks for itself. The supercar wears an exclusive paint finish unlike anything MSO has offered in the past. The exclusive touches continue in the interior, and the results are as mind-blowing as you’d imagine them to be.

Did We Just Catch a McLaren GT Hybrid in the Wild?

Did We Just Catch a McLaren GT Hybrid in the Wild?

This is a very interesting test mule

The McLaren GT was introduced in 2019, and we know for sure that the mule we see here is, in fact, a McLaren GT. Be that as it may, it was caught in a residential neighborhood in France by a friend of Topspeed, and it certainly raises a few questions. First, why is there a camouflaged McLaren GT cruising around France? Second, why was it parked outside a residential area? Third, why do the wheels have “Dyn Wheel” written all over them? Well, we think that McLaren might be testing its new V-6 hybrid drivetrain.

Can the Bentley Continental GT V8 beat the McLaren GT in the quarter mile?

Can the Bentley Continental GT V8 beat the McLaren GT in the quarter mile?

This clash is about the same purpose chased by different personalities. So, who wins?

Drag races these days can involve cars that sport different personalities and purposes. These days, you can expect a BMW 7 Series to do battle against the humble Dacia Logan MCV just to see how they fare in the quarter-mile run, or you can have your family EV going against all-out supercars... and win by a landslide.

But do you know what? Not many people drag race luxury cars. We, for one, would like to see how the S-Class compares to the Audi A8 in a straight line, or let’s say, how the Bentley Continental GT stacks up against the McLaren GT. Wait, what? It’s been done?

Here's What the McLaren GT Was Missing In the First Place

Here’s What the McLaren GT Was Missing In the First Place

No, it’s not related to performance, but it costs more than a new Dacia Duster

It’s been a while since McLaren lifted the veils off its GT and we are not going to lie, we’ve been wondering when the carmaker would see fit to introduce some sort of accessories that would complement the car’s luxurious ethos. Honestly, we were hoping for a GT-inspired watch that McLaren would come up with as a nice way of saying here, thank you for buying our cars, we’re giving you this matching, unique-to-you timepiece to go with it. That’s not off the table yet but, for now, McLaren is settling for a new bespoke luggage collection developed by its MSO arm to go with the new GT.

Rain Prisk Just Did the Unimaginable to the McLaren GT and We Like It!

Will McLaren ever build a front-engined sports car?

Mid-engined supercars aren’t exactly practical when it comes to luggage room, but McLaren set a new benchmark with the GT. Essentially a successor to the 570S-based 570GT, the McLaren GT offers more space than front-engined grand tourers and even most full-size sedans. But what if the GT was a shooting brake with the engine mounted in the front? A question that no one asked, answered by Rain Prisk, a designed who rendered many production models with different body styles.

2019 McLaren GT by McLaren Special Operations

2019 McLaren GT by McLaren Special Operations

MSO’s first crack at the McLaren grand tourer will take center stage at Pebble Beach

McLaren isn’t going to the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance empty-handed. The British automaker is bringing a special edition McLaren GT with McLaren Special Operations’ (MSO) imprints all over it. This isn’t your typical McLaren GT, folks, even if describing the GT as “typical” in it of itself sounds weird. This McLaren GT is the product of MSO’s latest design exercise, a showcase of the group’s ability to turn a $200,000 supercar into what amounts to a one-off creation that’s beaming with exclusive touches. There’s no name for this particular MSO project — perhaps we can just call it the “McLaren GT by MSO” — but that’s fine. This McLaren GT is more like a canvas for MSO to play around with. And play around it did. The McLaren GT doesn’t go on sale in the U.S. market until the fourth quarter of 2019 so you can understand why McLaren’s showcasing this special edition GT at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Timing is everything, so they say. Pricing for the McLaren GT starts at $210,000.

McLaren’s Vision Collection Has 3D-Printed Glasses That Fit Your Face Perfectly

The British carmaker doesn’t forget about the lifestyle side of owning a McLaren

Truth be told, after the unveiling of the McLaren GT, we were expecting some sort of fancy watch that would match the grand tourer’s design and ethos. That, however, didn’t happen but McLaren did have something lineup on the lifestyle and fashion front. Meet the brand’s McLaren Vision Collection, a selection of sunglasses and ophthalmic frames designed not only to make you look cool but also complement your personal style with the looks and quirks of your McLaren supercar. This doesn’t mean you can’t have a pair of McLaren sunglasses without actually owning a McLaren. Just don’t go near the Bespoke range, especially if you’re on a budget.

Supercar practicality revisited 26 years later

McLaren just unveiled its most practical mid-engined sports car yet. It’s called the GT, and it offers up to 20.1 cubic feet of luggage room combined. But the GT isn’t McLaren’s first practical vehicle. Although it’s a spiritual successor to the 570GT, the GT is actually the third McLaren to feature a proper trunk. The first car to offer some practicality was the F1, McLaren’s very first production car for road use. Let’s find out more about that in the comparison below.

Two of them are also McLarens

The new McLaren GT took the market by storm as the most practical mid-engined sports car available. It has a combined 20.1 cubic feet of luggage room, luxury features inside the cabin, and a powerful V-8 engine. It’s definitely a unique car if you factor all these details in, but it’s not the first practical mid-engined car. This design goes back a few decades, and we’re going to check out some of the most interesting creations of the past 50 years.

2020 McLaren GT - Quirks And Facts

Welcome the real-life grand touring supercar

Blurring the line between a supercar and a grand tourer, McLaren developed an all-new car appropriately called the GT. While retaining core McLaren principles such as a mid-engine layout and monocoque chassis, the McLaren GT provides a unique blend of luxury, refinement, and performance. It is the only mid-engine grand tourer on the market, and it could give us a whole new segment of luxury mid-engine cars. Remember, Ferrari is currently working on the new V-6 Hybrid. That may well be the luxury mid-engine GT relatively similar to the McLaren GT. However, it may end up being more powerful. Now, as the whole hype has calmed a bit, I give you most amazing quirks and facts about the new 2020 McLaren GT.

How Does the McLaren GT's Weight Stack Up Against Other Great Models?

How Does the McLaren GT’s Weight Stack Up Against Other Great Models?

The Ferrari Portofinos and the Aston Martin DB11s of the world may have something to worry about now

McLaren promised to roll out a mid-engined grand tourer, and when McLaren makes a promise, you know it’s going to deliver. It didn’t take long for the British supercar brand to come through on its word because the McLaren GT is here, and it looks every bit like the performance grand tourer the folks over at Woking, England said it would be. Classifications notwithstanding, the GT is more potent than the 570GT and more practical than the 650S. It’s also as light as a feather, at least when you compare it to other grand tourers of its ilk. Combine its weight with its power and performance capabilities, and McLaren could be onto something when it described the GT as a superlight supercar with perception-altering potential.

Is the new GT a big improvement?

The McLaren GT is the company’s take on the grand tourer segment. But unlike grand tourers from carmakers like Aston Martin, Bentley, and Mercedes-Benz, the GT features a mid-engined layout. As wild as it may sound, the GT isn’t the first mid-engined grand tourer from McLaren. It follows in the footsteps of the 570GT, a 570S with luggage room atop the engine that was introduced in 2016. Is the new GT a notable improvement over the 570GT? Let’s find out!

Here’s How We’d Spec the 2020 McLaren GT

It’ll take a while for you to spec your own, but the results should be worth the trouble

McLaren has done it again. When it comes to redefining expectations, the British supercar brand stands as one of the best innovators in the entire industry, and with the arrival of the McLaren GT, it’s safe to say that McLaren’s reputation in this regard remains intact. The GT is, for all intents and purposes, a supercar wearing a grand tourer’s body. It’s more powerful than the McLaren 570GT, and it has more functional trunk space than an actual sedan. When’s the last time you saw a performance car with those credentials? As is often the case with debuts as important as this, McLaren is now offering us a chance to build our own GTs the way we want it to look through the model’s own online configurator. Obviously, we’re not going to let this opportunity pass us by, even if we’re not actually buying one. The real McLaren GT, after all, starts at $210,000. It’s hard to find that kind of scratch these days so we’ll settle for what we can actually work with.

The British grand tourer might be as practical as a mid-size sedan

When it confirmed the McLaren GT at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, the British firm claimed that it would be the most efficient mid-engined car on the market. Now that the GT has been unveiled, I can agree that it offers more luggage room than any other mid-engined vehicle available. What’s more, this mid-engined grand tourer actually has more trunk space than several sedans. Let’s see how it compares.

In a somewhat surprising move, McLaren announced plans to build a mid-engined grand tourer that’s more powerful and more practical than the 570GT. Design as a stand-alone nameplate offered alongside the Sports, Super, and Ultimate Series models, the mid-engined grand tourer was just unveiled as the McLaren GT. The British firm says that the GT will redefine the rules of grand touring. But is it more than just fancy PR talk? Let’s find out!
