McLaren GT unveiled, rivals Aston Martin DB11 and Bentley Continental GT

2020 McLaren GT: Everything You Need to Know

With an acceleration from a standing start at 0-60mph in 3.1 seconds, 0-124mph within 9 seconds, and a maximum speed of 203mph, it's evident its bespoke design matches its performance abilities. The vehicle features a MonoCell II-T monocoque. The closest it has come is the still very much performance-based 570 GT, with a comfort-oriented McLaren still absent from the current range. Whether that eventually mean the expansion into a fourth category, McLaren is so far only teasing about - it'll likely depend on just how well the GT is received. It comes equipped with HERE® navigation mapping and can display real-time traffic information. The interior is a lot more plush than a regular McLaren supercar, to make it bearable for long journeys. If its name isn't already indicative of its objective, the GT serves to be McLaren's new Grand Touring model. Custom electrically-adjusted seats get heating as standard, along with padding suited more to long-distance driving than track days.

Ever since the first MP4-12C rolled out of the McLaren Technology Centre in 2010, the newly resurrected McLaren Automotive has firmly positioned itself at the forefront of the supercar scene.

That, along with the lower engine height and the repositioning of the exhausts, allows the addition of a 420 litre boot behind the seats (this auto is still a strict two-seater, mind) that McLaren says will fit golf bag or two pairs of 185 cm skis and boots, together with luggage. Cabin features most sophisticated infotainment system to date, aluminum switches and controls, gloss black surrounds for the screen, window switches, gear-selection console and air vents.

Boeing finishes software update for grounded airliner
To date, Boeing has flown the 737 MAX with updated software for more than 360 hours on 207 flights, the company said . The next major step is a certification flight with Federal Aviation Administration representatives on board.

"The new McLaren GT combines competition levels of performance with continent-crossing capability, wrapped in a attractive body and true to McLaren's ethos of designing superlight cars with a clear weight advantage over rivals", McLaren CEO Mike Flewitt remarked.

All that power would sound like it could tear the auto apart with its harshness, but McLaren indicates that the engine supports used on the GT are only half as stiff as those on the 600LT to maintain comfort. With an upgrade, owners can opt for a 12-spear premium audio system by Bowers & Wilkins paired with carbon fibre subwoofers. Suspension, steering and brakes are all bespoke and optimized to provide unforgettable driving experience of a Grand Tourer. The standard Nappa leather can be upgraded to softgrain luxury leather or Alcantara, depending on which vehicle specification is chosen. McLaren GT also features the most sophisticated infotainment system ever used on a McLaren vehicle. Deliveries of the McLaren GT will commence towards the closure of 2019 and it is priced at $210,000 (Rs. 1.47 crore).

The McLaren GT rides on custom Pirelli P ZERO tires created to meet the demands of high-performance driving and comfort and refinement in equal measure.
