Practical enough for everyday use, the two-seat, mid-engined 570GT is the most refined and road-biased McLaren yet. Designed with a focus on day-to-day usability and long distance comfort, it offers increased levels of practicality while remaining a true McLaren sports car.
A panoramic glass roof provides a bright, open cabin, which extends through the large rear glass hatch to create a luxurious and relaxing driving environment. Craftsmanship throughout the interior of the 570GT is of the highest level, upholstered and specified with quality materials and the latest technologies throughout.
Under the skin, the 570GT has been developed with its own unique setup to reflect its position in the Sports Series range, while retaining the supercar levels of engagement experienced on the 570S Coupe. The overall setup of the 570GT has been calibrated to enhance road and motorway driving, and aid ride quality over poor road surfaces.
The 570GT is fitted with the McLaren-developed 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 M838TE engine which debuted in the 570S Coupe. Power and torque remain at 562 hp (570PS) and 443 lb ft (600 Nm). Power is delivered to the rear wheels via a seven-speed seamless- shift transmission, and features adjustment through Normal, Sport and Track settings to produce a rewarding and engaging driving experience. These settings include bespoke gearchange calibrations.
The revised design of the 570GT sees the glasshouse with clean and sleek lines leading to the rear of the car. With the side-opening Glass Hatch and increased luggage area, the 570GT features a unique aerodynamic package, including an extended fixed rear spoiler – 10mm taller than that fitted to the Coupe models – designed to offer the same levels of aerodynamic performance as the distinctive flying buttresses on the 570S Coupe.
As with all McLaren models since the introduction of the MP4-1 Formula 1 car in 1981, the 570GT uses a carbon fiber chassis. The MonoCell II debuted in the 570S Coupe, and is shared across the Sports Series models. Weighing just 75 kg, the lightweight yet extremely stiff chassis contributes to a dry weight of 1,350 kg. This provides breathtaking performance more commonly seen in the supercar segment: 0- 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds with a top speed of 328 km/h. Despite supercar performance figures, there have been no sacrifices to the everyday drivability and practicality of the 570GT.
