‘McLaren Of Grand Tourers’ Coming To Join Sports, Super, And Ultimate Series Models

We knew McLaren was bringing the Speedtail, 720S Spider, and 600LT Spider to the Geneva Motor Show, but now the automaker has surprised everyone by announcing an all-new model. Only referred to as the ‘McLaren of Grand Tourers’, it will be built separately from the marque’s existing Sports Series, Super Series, and Ultimate Series range of vehicles.

Chief executive Mike Flewitt said that McLaren was encouraged to build this all-new model after receiving feedback from customers of the existing McLaren 570GT.

“It will be a car that combines competition levels of performance with continent-crossing capability, wrapped in a beautiful lightweight body. It’s a car that has been designed for distance and one that will also provide the comfort and space expected of a Grand Tourer.”

McLaren customers wanted a Grand Tourer faster than the 570GT

“But with a level of agility never experienced before in this segment. In addition, it will be the lightest of Grand Tourers and by also having the best power-to-weight ratio, I promise it will be one of the quickest. In addition, it will be the only Grand Tourer to share its DNA with the 250mph McLaren Speedtail,” Flewitt said.

Unfortunately, McLaren hasn’t released pictures of the finished product, but has dropped a video of the prototype undergoing testing while still wearing camouflage. Flewitt said the car will be unveiled in full in the coming months.

The video confirms that the car will be mid-engined and that it will feature similar horizontal taillights to those of the almighty Speedtail hyper-GT. Other than that, it’s virtually impossible to decipher any more details about its overall shape and design.
