McLaren GT for Long Drive

Spread the love

Surely, McLaren is my first love supercar precisely McLaren 720S, it was just love at first sight. McLaren GT (Grand Tourer) on another level the GT cars. How is is possible for a two seater coupe with butterfly doors be a GT car, well that’s what McLaren has done and it is a marvel. I can’t but just phantom driving in a supercar for a long distance feeling all exotic and stylish. The British exotic car marque never runs out of fashion, always back with a fuss that makes all seem simple.

McLaren GT is actually bigger than what you’d describe McLaren. What would you expect from a GT car that is built to drive long distances flawlessly. Truly, this is just the height I never thought I’d be seeing but since it’s all glaring right before me. It’s just a thrill. Guess what, there’s no heavy pricing as it cost $250,000. With its 4.0L twin-turbo V8 engine blistering 612hp and weighing 456 lb-ft of torque mated with a 7-speed dual clutch transmission gearbox. The GT’s power drives it from 0-60 mph in 3.2 seconds, 124 mph in 9 seconds with a top speed of 203 mph. There’s a sensational feeling when driving the McLaren GT, as control is felt – turning the steering wheel requires effort (don’t stress it), the brake requires consciousness for response -when driving.

Getting into McLaren GT is tricky with no handles but has a button of square shape that is pressed then the window rows down slightly and the door opens. Into the GT’s cabin is fitted with leather upholstery unlike the McLaren usual carbon fibre seats or alcantara seats. It’s electrochromic glass roof does it all, with the touch of a button, you can control the amount of light that gets into the car, either leaving the roof opaque or transparent.

Despite the McLaren GT being away from the orthodox designs of gran tourers, it still maintain all characteristics of a McLaren. The McLaren GT is based on McLaren 720S but pricing is no where close to the price tag of 720S. From the rear view of McLaren GT, its brake light are so thin that is so different from McLarens.
