McLaren’s “rule-breaking” new GT “superlight” grand touring car was officially revealed today, aimed at buyers who want both a McLaren and a car that can comfortably travel long distances with enough cargo space for golf clubs or skis. (C’mon, rich people, don’t you already have enough?)
The GT will have a starting price of $210,000 — not including destination, which on other McLaren models depends on the method used to deliver the car — and seats two, forgoing the tiny and often pointless backseat of other grand tourers.
Power comes from a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 making 612 horsepower and 465 pounds-feet of torque, giving the GT a claimed 3.1-second zero-to-60-mph time and a top speed of 203 mph. Range is a claimed 399 miles thanks to a 19-gallon fuel tank and what McLaren says are fuel economy figures of 15/21/17 mpg city/highway/combined.
