mclaren’s practical supercar 570GT for 2016 geneva motor show
for the 2016 geneva motor show, mclaren will showcase the largest selection of models to date with a full range of models, including the latest – the mclaren ‘570GT’. intended for everyday uses, the two-seat, mid-engined sportscar focuses on usability and long distance comfort. the clean lines of the revised glass hive the ‘570GT’ a refined shape and mark out the second of three body styles which complete the ‘sport series.’ a standard fixed glass panoramic roof provides a bright, open cabin running through to the large rear glass hatch.
equipped with larger dihedral doors that open more upward, the cabin is paired with eight-way electrically adjustable sports seats upholstered in leather. the control interfaces are managed through the centrally-mounted touchscreen, while vehicle setup is configurable via the digital instrument cluster.
the front luggage area remains unchanged from its other models, but mclaren have further added an extra 220 liters of space behind the sears on the leather-lined touring deck. the glass hatch is framed by carbon fibre to provide significant torsion rigidity and stiffness.
the ‘570GT’ is fitted with the mclaren-developed 3.8 liter twin turbo V8 engine which debuted in the ‘570S’ coupé. the 562 bhp is delivered to the rear wheels via a seven speed transmission with adjustment through normal, sport and track presets. weighing 1,350 kilograms the car can accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds and continue to a top speed of 328 km/h. the mclaren ‘570GT’ will hit the streets in late 2016. be sure to check out more of designboom’s coverage of the 2016 geneva motor show here.
