All-New McLaren 'Grand Tourer' Teased

All-New McLaren 'Grand Tourer' Teased”

Billed as the "McLaren of Grand Tourers", the new model aims to be a more comfortable long-distance cruiser than the company's more track-focused offerings. As a result, we can admire for the first time the car's lines - and there's a lot to admire as you can see.

McLaren have said that the vehicle will be fully unveiled in May, the company has not revealed any performance details for their new Gran Tourer as yet.

However, the firm's development team still isn't finished with it - and will be completing a 1,000-mile drive from the development base near Barcelona to its Technology Centre in Woking.

This is all in the name of endurance and refinement testing and not just an employee jolly up, although it does sound rather fun.

McLaren has finally chose to give us a glimpse of the upcoming Grand Tourer. Particularly when interested buyers are said to be existing customers who have praised the 570GT's touring abilities.

Although details surrounding the auto are limited, we do know that it'll be powered by a twin-turbocharged V8 engine and won't be part of any of the company's existing model series, instead being pitched as a unique model.

Unlike the cars comprising McLaren's Sport, Super, and Ultimate series, the MoGT won't be based on any other vehicle line; it will be its own auto. It loses little to the S dynamically (and that can be restored with a handling pack), while offering some welcome added style, luxury and sense of occasion.

The #NewRules tag promises that the auto will break numerous rules that traditionally surround luxury performance grand tourers. It won't follow the regular and boring McLaren naming strategy either. The car's sleek and boldly elegant design can now be discerned although the lightweight body remains covered by a shrink-wrapped livery that suggests the number of established rules the McLaren of Grand Tourers will break. Continent-crossing space and elegance.

In fact, the company says the model will be "the most usable mid-engined car" it has made. One to investigate further once the hype dies down.
