McLaren was the only supercar maker to not have a new car reveal at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. But, the brand did announce an upcoming car on the sidelines of the event, revealing a camouflaged picture and some info about it.
It seems that McLaren plans to disrupt the Grand Tourer segment with an interpretation of its own. The mid-engined grand tourer is the fourth car in McLaren’s Track-25 plan to launch 18 cars by 2025. According to company, the car will “combine competition levels of performance with continent-crossing capability, wrapped in a beautiful lightweight body.” McLaren also claims that its new car will be the lightest of Grand Tourers and will also have the best power-to-weight ratio.
It’s not a 720S GT as many have suggested. McLaren has made it clear that the new Grand Tourer will not be part of any of the company’s existing model series and will be a unique. The car maker has said that the new car will be the most usable mid-engined car yet with comfort and space expected of a Grand Tourer. As one would expect, it would share some of its DNA with the Speedtail which has been designed as a 250 mph Hyper GT.
McLaren promises to reveal more info about the car including its name over the coming months.
