An all-new McLaren Grand Tourer is in the making
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.”
