British car maker McLaren has launched its new grand tourer – the 2020 McLaren GT. The car offers speed and comfort at the same time and it seems like a nice addition to its existing range. Unlike the 570GT, this has been made from the ground up as a touring car. Here is what you need to know about the specs, trims, power, and performance of this car for sale.
The McLaren GT Is Underpinned By A Powerful Engine
The grand tourer isn’t just a looker, it is also capable of delivering supercar performance, thanks to the 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine that offers 620 hp and 630 Nm. The car features a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The GT can go from a standstill to 60 miles an hour in just about three seconds and offers a maximum speed of 203 miles an hour.
The McLaren GT weighs just 3,232 pounds, which makes it a little lighter than competing cars. That’s a remarkable feat of engineering, considering that the car packs in a 4.0-litre-manoeuvring charged V8 engine. The power-to-weight ratio is 399 hp per ton.
Designed To Offer A Comfortable Ride
The car has been designed to provide comfort. The steering, brakes, and suspension have all been tuned to offer comfort and responsiveness. The car comes with Proactive Damping Control and sensor monitor factors such as road quality and suspension react predictively. The GT has three drive modes, Sport, Comfort, and Track. No matter which mode you go for, the setting is the same for hydraulic steering, and it provides more help at lower speeds to help with parking and manoeuvring.
Plenty Of Space
The GT is more spacious than most Sports and Supercars in the market, which is hardly surprising, as it’s more than 15 feet. The engine and exhaust system have been positioned as low as possible to provide more space. The extended front and rear overhangs do not get in the way of safe driving, thanks to the 10-degree approach angle. With more than four inches between the body and the road, the car is also higher so you don’t have to worry about it scraping over speed bumps.
Engine Mounts To Keep The Car Quiet
The GT comes with mounts that have been made to lower chassis noise. These rubber blocks hold the engine in place and are softer than those in the company’s other sports cars.
The GT can now be ordered at any of McLaren’s dealership around the world, although deliveries won’t start until later this year. Price starts at $210,000, which is roughly AED 800,000. Apart from the standard Nappa leather trim, other options are also available such as luxury leather seats or Alcantara seats. Cashmere will also be offered as an option later on.
