When supercar-maker McLaren says it’s going to build a Grand Tourer, you expect something special. Sure enough, the 2020 McLaren GT is not your typical highway cruiser. Combining the British marque’s sporting heritage with the promise of increased road comfort and convenience, it sets out to straddle two worlds.
So, outside it looks every bit a sports car performer. It’s actually longer than any car in the Sports or Super Series, though better front approach angles and ride height should make urban driving less of a headache. Expanded rear and front trunks, meanwhile, add up to more than twenty cubic feet of cargo space.
You still get plenty of power, though: 612 hp from a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8. 0-60 mph takes just 3.1 seconds. Inside, there are new, comfort-focused seats and a brand new infotainment system.
