Supercars are things that make a living at speed. They never pay too much attention to the driver’s experience: they are not suitable for long-distance driving, whether it is the roar of the engine or the extreme abnormality of sitting. Many people say: This is why I don’t buy a super sports car! Now, for those who say you don’t want to buy a super sports car, because of the uncomfortable long-distance driving, McLaren heard your voice!
McLaren has released a trailer for its new Grand Tourer GT sports car and announced that it will be available in the UK on May 15.
McLaren officials said the new GT sports car will redefine the high-speed passenger car, designed to provide users with a comfortable driving experience. CEO Mike Flewitt said, “This will be a combination of performance and off-road capabilities, designed for long-distance flights, providing comfort and space, just like a large station wagon.”
Last year, McLaren launched the Track 25 program, which plans to invest £1.2 billion in 2025 to launch 18 new or derivative models, and 100% of the new Sport and Super models will be equipped with petrol-electric hybrids. The new GT sports car exposure is the fourth model in the Track 25 program and the only luxury GT sports car after the Speedtail hyper-gt sports car.
McLaren’s new GT sports car is positioned as a long-distance running GT super sports car, so it does not use the combat design style of the traditional low-lying super sports car. After all, the flagship integrated supercar also needs to ensure the accessibility of a certain road.
This new car features McLaren’s signature design and its simple wedge-shaped headlights are sharp. In addition, the narrow taillights are very recognizable, the tail is designed to be three-dimensional, and dual exhaust is used. Compared to other models in the home, this new GT sports car is designed to be more docile. Its taillights, rear spoiler and diffuser are designed to be softer, more luxurious, comfortable and elegant.
The new McLaren GT Roadster. Although highly camouflaged, the front of the new car can be considered aggressive. The relatively simple headlights, combined with the large air intake below, make the front face of this GT sports car very fierce.
On the other hand, the new car still has the proportion of a mid-engine sports car, as well as a large side air intake.
At the rear of the car, the narrow taillights of the new car are designed in a horizontal direction and connected to the central decorative strip to create a penetration effect and stretch the visual effect. At the same time, the new car is equipped with double-sided dual exhaust, large-area grille and diffuser bottom, very energetic.
In terms of power, there is no official announcement of specific information, but there is news that the new car in the automotive industry may use a 4.0t V8 twin-turbo engine.
