McLaren GT To Make Global Public Debut At Top Marques Monaco

The Top Marques Monaco supercar show (May 30-June 3) will mark the first public outing for the all-new McLaren GT.

The brand’s first true Grand Tourer will be showcased in Monaco in a Burnished Copper finish and will be joined by a 720S Spider convertible finished in Supernova Silver with Stealth wheels.

This will be the McLaren GT’s global public debut following its online unveiling on May 15. Visitors to the exhibition in the Grimaldi Forum will be the first in the world to see McLaren’s first Grand Tourer in the metal.

The show car combines a Burnished Copper exterior with Porcelain Blue leather interior and is in the Luxe specification. This means it features “a leather-finished rear luggage area and finely-crafted, machined, brushed and knurled aluminum controls.” In addition, the McLaren GT show car is fitted with an optional panoramic electrochromic glass roof and rides on 15-spoke Gloss Black diamond-cut alloy wheels.

The McLaren GT is the company’s first model to focus on touring refinement and practicality. The rear-hinged glass tailgate grants access to a roomy luggage area that can accommodate two pairs of skis plus boots or a set of golf clubs as well as bags.

Besides the practical aspect, the GT remains a true McLaren performance-wise. Its 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 produces 620 PS (612 hp), enabling the GT to accelerate from 0-200 km/h (0-124 mph) in just 9.0 seconds and reach a top speed of 326 km/h (203 mph). First deliveries will be made towards the end of 2019.

Alongside the McLaren GT, the brand’s Top Marques stand will feature a McLaren 720S Spider finished in Supernova Silver with Carbon Fiber exterior pack and full Carbon Black interior with carbon components. The 720S Spider show car rides on 10-spoke Super Lightweight alloy wheels in Stealth finish and sports Dark Palladium aerodynamic body elements with a matching roof.

    Truly gorgeous

    Ill remain the one here not impressed. that said, I don’t hate it, i just expected more. from the side if you squint just a tiny bit, you can see they copied some basic shape elements, of some similar lines of the much better looking Spyker C8 Preliator. the back looks good, but the thin line style break-lights surely had influence from other cars, such as newer bugatti’s. this car makes the raccoon look better to my eye now, at least that holds more uniqueness. F1 and P1 still untouched, McLaren cant come close to those two pinnacles, I hoped they would have matched, or came very close to one of those two amazing vehicles. So, this gets a MEH from me, not that anyone cares, but to me this just isn’t all that.
