McLaren is a brand known for making some of the world's fastest supercars, and the Solus GT is McLaren's most ambitious and exclusive supercar ever created. What started as a design concept born in the virtual racing world is now a reality. Rendered possible through McLaren's expertise in motorsport, supercar, and hypercar development – the Solus GT is a pure expression of track driving focus and engagement. Limited to just 25 units, the McLaren Solus GT is ultra-rare, just like the owner who'll drive it. Stay on this page by McLaren Chicago in Chicago, IL, to learn more about the McLaren Solus GT.
Like the meaning of its name, the Solus GT is genuinely one-of-a-kind. It's the world's first single-seater with a centrally closed cockpit and jet aircraft-style canopy.
The unique monocoque of the Solus GT houses a naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine that revs beyond 10,000 rpm and generates more than 840 horsepower in a ruthlessly pared-down machine that weighs less than 1,000kg and generates 1,200kg of downforce. To control all that power, there Solus GT comes equipped with a 7-speed sequential transmission that uses racing-style straight-cut gears, and a carbon fiber clutch with automated software. The result is a unique McLaren hypercar that launches from 0 – 62mph in a target time of just 2.5 seconds with speeds beyond 200 mph. In short, the Solus GT is as close to the experience and feel of driving a Formula 1 car as it can get.
The McLaren Solus GT is currently at the track-testing stage of its development process, and the first 25 Solus GT - all of which are sold - will be delivered in 2023.
