McLaren GT Scooped One Last Time Before Its Global Premiere

A number of spy shots of the McLaren GT have emerged before Woking’s latest makes its online premiere on Wednesday, May 15th.

McLaren has previously stated that it was encouraged to build the GT after receiving feedback from owners of the 570GT that they wanted a vehicle with similar levels of comfort but even more power. The new Macca will sit alongside the existing Sports Series, Super Series, and Ultimate Series supercars.

The latest images show the car with skin-tight camouflage, but the overall shape and key design elements are immediately visible. At the front, it features headlights which are simpler in design than those of other McLaren models. Additionally, the car lacks a traditional front grille and makes do with four large air intakes incorporated into the bumper.

Viewed from the side, the GT has a long and sleek profile with a lip spoiler incorporated into the trunk lid and a pair of round tailpipes. We don’t yet know what the interior of the car will look like, but could get a revamped design to differentiate it from other McLarens currently on sale.

Technical specifications are unavaible right now, but the car will likely be powered by the company’s 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine first used by the 720S. Power will, probably, sit in the high 600s or low 700s, making this one of the fastest grand tourers on the market.

    Well is it only me or there is no point point for this GT car in MCL range? We already have 570GT which does the job and looks very similar to that “new” car. I would understand if MCL decided to make a proper old-school GT by locating the engine in front to make a room for a proper luggage space and 2+2 layout. But judging from the spy photos, this car also seems to have the same underpinnings as 720S. So basically this is gonna be another 720S with a slightly different design and side air intakes.

      I totally agree, I would understand if they made a front engined car wit 2+2 seating, if they wanted to create a car for their new GT series.

    The Premiere is on the 14th for the lucky few

  • LOOKS LIKE THE C8.

    True mate, I did not read. But I think 720S is already a good GT and has more classical styling than this new GT because of clean side profile. The new GT is going to have sporty side intakes.
    Whatever, let’s see the final product.
