2019 McLaren GT

Yesterday, McLaren enchanted us with a new model, called simple as GT. it's their fourth model in the lineup and it wants to be a more comfy approach towards the sportscars.

“The new McLaren GT combines competition levels of performance with continent-crossing capability, wrapped in a beautiful body and true to McLaren’s ethos of designing superlight cars with a clear weight advantage over rivals. 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. In short, this is a car that redefines the notion of a Grand Tourer in a way that only a McLaren could,” said the company’s CEO, Mike Flewitt

Te entire design is a lot more friendlier than what McLaren has getting us used to, with prolonged front and rear overhangs, taller ride height ( front has an air lift system with 13-degree ), you can tell this car is made to eat up many miles, while making the driver feel comfortable.

Inside, you get one of the most round up design, breathing performance and also longer drives. Everything has been engineered for confort, with the usage of high-quality materials, ergonomic controls and high-tech sat-nav system and a peremium sound system from Bowers & Wilkins.

"The new McLaren GT combines McLaren’s design philosophies with classic Grand Tourer visual cues. Bold, elegant volumes flow seamlessly from nose to tail, encapsulating the beautifully crafted cabin. The sophisticated, sculpted body expresses both the power of the car and its ability to cosset occupants during long-distance driving. The teardrop shape of the cabin, which stretches back to encompass the rear luggage area, follows the aerodynamic principles inherent in all McLarens, while the muscular rear fenders that form the side intakes for the high-temperature radiators are an example of how we merge both beauty and functionality to create breath-taking authentic designs. The new McLaren GT clearly stands out both as a new type of McLaren and a cutting-edge interpretation of a Grand Tourer for a new era,” said McLaren design boss, Rob Melville.

Under the rear bonnet lies a new twin turbo V8 unit, which develops 612 HP and 630 Nm of torque, hooked to a 7-speed SSG transmission. The GT can sprint to 100km.h in 3.1s, making it reach 200km.h in 9s. Add this to the 1530kg weight and you get a remarkable performance car.

“The new McLaren GT delivers the dynamic performance and driving exhilaration expected of a McLaren but is also an exceptionally refined vehicle. We’re particularly proud of the Proactive Damping Control suspension, which utilizes the next generation of our pioneering Optimal Control Theory to deliver levels of ride comfort that better all previous McLarens. Overall, the breadth of ability demonstrated by the new McLaren GT – especially its everyday usability – is truly remarkable,” added McLaren GT vehicle line director, Darren Goddard.

McLaren is already taking orders with deliveries starting towards the end of the 2019.
