It is not very often that a car manufacturer will unveil a car and highlight that it is the first they have ever produced with vanity mirrors, a glovebox and twice the number of windscreen wipers than ever before. Ladies and gents, this is the most luxurious McLaren ever to have been built – but do not fear, there’s not a four-wheel-drive system or bulbous body in sight, meet the McLaren 570GT.
Dynamically, the 570GT is considerably more road focused than any other McLaren. As with the 570S there is 562 bhp at the drivers disposal, courtesy of the very same turbocharged V8 and is only 0.2 of a second slower to 60 mph (97 km/h). Top speed is a supercar status worthy 204 mph (328 km/h). Being slightly less sporty, the GT features the exhaust system from the 540C rather than the 570S, however, the more sonorous exhaust of the S is available as an option. Additionally, the standard tyres on the 570GT are Pirelli P Zeros as opposed to the Corsa compound wrapped around an all new wheel design. Furthermore, the standard carbon ceramic brakes have been swapped for more conventional cast iron disks that are better suited to road driving.
