2020 McLaren GT Tries To Be All Things To All People – And Fails

If you’ve got $250,000 laying around and you want a supercar that can also provide you with added comfort when it comes to long journeys, the McLaren GT should probably make your shortlist. Then again, maybe not.

This latest review, courtesy of Doug DeMuro, portrays the GT as a sort of imperfect Jack of all trades, and while he did enjoy pretty much all aspects of the car, the reviewer found it lacking in both ride quality as well as performance compared to some of its rivals.

For example, he found it less comfortable than a Mercedes-AMG GT S or an Aston Martin Vantage, and at the same time, not quite as fun to drive as an Audi R8 V10 Plus or a Lamborghini Huracan – let alone a McLaren 650S or a 720S.

Of course, just because it is a little bit slower or less capable of absorbing bumps than a Huracan or a Vantage, respectively, it doesn’t mean that it’s an overall disappointment; the McLaren GT is still an exceptional package on paper.

It features a rear mid-engine layout with a 4.0-liter twin turbocharged V8 mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox. With its 620 PS (611 HP) and 630 Nm (465 lb-ft) of torque, it can get you to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.2 seconds, before maxing out at 326 km/h (203 mph).

Also impressive is just how practical it is in terms of storage volume. The combined capacity of the front and rear cargo areas (420 liters / 14.8 cu.ft rear, 150 liters / 5.3 cu.ft front) is actually more than you get in most compact hatchbacks.
