Last month at the Geneva motor show, McLaren CEO Mike Flewitt announced that the brand would redefine the Grand Touring segment when it released a new Grand Tourer model – it has now confirmed that it will remove the camouflage next month for a full reveal of the all-new model.
New images of McLaren Grand Tourer also came with the news, showing the model without its shape-changing body panels. Although it’s still under camoflauge wrap, it’s now clear that dual, bottom-mounted exhausts will sit above the diffuser at the rear and that a new rear light design will feature. Side-on, a rather large side intake can also be seen behind the doors, alongside a ducktail rear spoiler, enhancing its sleek silhouette.
“The fourth McLaren to be introduced under the Track25 business plan will be our interpretation of the Grand Tourer. It will be a car that combines competition levels of performance with continent-crossing capability, wrapped in a beautiful lightweight body. It’s a car that has been designed for distance and one that will also provide the comfort and space expected of a Grand Tourer, but with a level of agility never experienced before in this segment.” commented Flewitt during the press conference.
He continued; “In addition, it will be the lightest of Grand Tourers and by also having the best power-to-weight ratio, I promise it will be one of the quickest. In addition, it will be the only Grand Tourer to share its DNA with the 250mph McLaren Speedtail.”
