    • Official - The 2020 McLaren GT - Picture, specifications, acceleration, and curb weight

      Admittedly when McLaren stated they were working on a GT car it was met with skepticism. A mid-engine GT? Well, it works. It works very, very well. McLaren detuned theri M840T from the 720S and paired it with a more comfortable, roomier, and heavier chassis.


      That chassis is still based on the Monocell II from the McLaren 720 but the curb weight is 3373 pounds. That puts it on par with a rear wheel drive Porsche 992.

      The GT also borrows the M840T from the McLaren 720S although detuned but with a higher 8500 rpm redline. You would think that the GT would have a lower redline considering its more relaxed nature but it is the 720S with the lower redline.


      Horsepower is at 612 and torque at 465 lb-ft. The 7-speed dual clutch gearbox also carries over.

      So, this is a heavier 720S that is detuned with more cabin room if you want to look at it that way. Another way to look at it is a higher performance, lighter, and more exclusive Porsche 911 Turbo S rival.


      It certainly has exotic styling.

      McLaren likely has a hit on their hands considering the $212k or so base price.

        This looks far better than the 720s.

        Not sure why there isn't a greater response to this thing.

        It's amazing. Sure maybe heavier and not has hardcore as the 720S but you get the 4.0 liter motor at a huge discount and it revs to 8500.

        I think I'm going to buy one. It's a little more grown up than the 570 but not as expensive as the 720 with more useability.

        What's not to like?
