New shots of McLaren’s 570GT have appeared in the motoring press, giving us a glimpse at what could be a more practical addition to the supercar expert’s range. The British manufacturer confirmed earlier this year that a GT version of the 570S would enter production, and these latest images preview the alterations McLaren has made.
The most significant is a ‘fastback’ rear end which replaces the exposed engine vents on the standard 570S. A curving windscreen also features, taken from the 570S Coupé, while the model’s roofline rises higher and the rear windows are longer. The revised shape increases the supercar’s luggage capacity and could see a 2+2 seating arrangement in the cabin. The rear seats would be for occasional use rather than everyday travelling, and could double as another area to hold luggage.
The test car’s camouflage livery indicates that developments are still ongoing, and details on its technical specification can be expected in the near future. However, the GT is expected to be fitted with the same 562bhp V8 that powers the standard 570S. It takes the current model from 0-60mph in close to three seconds on the way to a top speed of 204mph. Adaptive suspension, paddle shift gearbox and advanced Brake Steer system may also be carried over.
