The all-new 2020 McLaren GT, which made its international debut earlier this year at the Geneva Auto Show, offers the comfort and convenience of a grand tourer model, along with the exceptional driving characteristics and performance that exotic car enthusiasts have long come to expect for the McLaren brand.

Performance Specs of the 2020 McLaren GT
The 2020 McLaren delivers excellent performance with its 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine. Paired with the 7-speed Seamless Shift Gearbox, it generates 612 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque. The McLaren GT can reach a top speed of 203 mph. The acceleration times for the McLaren GT are 3.2 seconds for the 0 – 100 kph (62 mph) sprint and 9.0 seconds for the 0 – 200 kph (124 mph) sprint.
In addition to its powerful engine and smooth-shifting transmission, the McLaren GT offers many other performance features, including Dynamic Electronic Stability Control, adaptive damping, an open differential, a Launch Control function, selectable powertrain modes, electro-hydraulic power-assisted steering, Hill Hold Assist, the Traction Control System, and Pirelli P ZERO tires.
How is the 2020 McLaren GT different from other McLaren models?
While the McLaren GT provides the high-level performance and driving dynamics of the McLaren brand, it was specifically designed for drivers who desire the comfort and convenience of long excursions — hence the Grand Tourer (GT) name. With a length of around 4.7 meters (15.4 feet), it is longer than other McLaren models. This results in more space for the driver and passenger, as well as a generous amount of cargo space in the luggage bay.
