McLaren has just revealed the third model of its sports series, the brand new McLaren 570GT.
The new McLaren 570GT is focused on day-to-day usability and long-distance touring capacity. In the McLaren words, it is the most refined and road-biased McLaren ever built offering increased levels of practicality and comfort.
The standard fixed glass Panoramic Roof provides a bright and open cabin. The Glass Hatch opens on the kerbside whether left- or right-hand drive and gives access to 220 liters of storage space, available behind the seats on the leather-lined Touring Dec. The front luggage offers 370 liters.
The 570GT features an enhanced dual-zone air conditioning system thanks to the increased glass area. The roof glass is treated with an 18 percent tint and features Sound & Solar Film (SSF) to absorb solar radiation while providing additional noise insulation.
Furthermore, the car uses a bespoke P Zero™ tires featuring the innovative Pirelli Noise Cancelling System (PNCS), which reduces in-cabin road noise.
Continuing, the McLaren 570GT yet features luxurious leather upholstery, eight-way electrically adjustable heated seats, front and rear parking sensors, an electric steering column with easy entry/exit function, soft-close doors and a quieter exhaust system in comparison to the 570S Coupé.
The engine is the same of the 570S, and it is untouched. So, the 3.8-liter twin turbo V8 continues delivering 570 horsepower (562 bhp) and 600Nm (443lb ft) of torque. Again, as the 570S, the 570GT uses the MonoCell II weighing just 75kg, and the lightweight yet extremely stiff chassis contributing to the 1350kg (2976lb) of the car (dry).
A seven-speed seamless-shift transmission transfers the power from the engine to the rear wheels which can push the 570GT to a top speed of 204 mph (328 km/h) and takes 3.4 seconds to reach the 62 mph (100 km/h) barrier.
