McLaren 570GT to Debut at London Motor Show

Following its global reveal at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, the new McLaren 570GT makes its UK debut at the newly-revived London Motor Show in Battersea this week

Widely recognised as the most refined and luxurious McLaren to date, the new 570GT sits alongside the 570S Coupé and 540C Coupé as the third model in the brand’s Sports Series.

Though still a McLaren in every conceivable way, the 570GT is ‘practical’ enough for everyday use and long distance journeys (as long as you hadn’t planned to pack the Globetrotters) thanks to the side-opening rear glass hatch which offers additional storage on the leather-upholstered Touring Deck.

The interior of the 570GT is light and airy thanks to the fixed glass panoramic roof, moving away from the traditional enclosed feel of a sports car, but under the hood you’ll find the most impeccable of McLaren credentials.

The 3.8-litre twin turbo V8 M838TE engine generates 562bhp and 600Nm of torque delivered through the rear wheels via a seven-speed seamless-shift transmission with Normal, Sport and Track modes.

Find the 570GT alongside the 650S Spider and the sold-out 675LT Spider on the McLaren London stand #63. If you’re planning to visit the show, this is definitely on our must-see list.

The London Motor Show takes place 5-8 May at Battersea Evolution. For more information or to buy tickets, visit www.thelondonmotorshow.co.uk. The McLaren 570GT starts from £154,000 with first customer deliveries scheduled for July 2016. For more information, visit www.cars.mclaren.com
