The 570GT might end up being McLaren’s best-selling vehicle. Designed as a more comfortable, everyday version of the standard 570S, the 570GT is built on the same carbon chassis as the 650S and P1 albeit with a few tweaks. The side pods have been lowered to allow for better entry and exit while remaining characteristically McLaren. The design change between the 570S and 570GT lie mostly in the added luggage space and practicality. The rear glass panel opens to the side to reveal additional storage space giving a total of 370 liters between the rear deck and “frunk” (front trunk). Besides the glass deck, the overall look of the 570GT is unchanged from the standard coupe.
Although the 570GT retains the same 562-hp, 3.8L V8 as the 570, the real mechanical changes lie in the suspension and steering setup. The springs have been softened by 15 percent up front and 10 percent out back while a slower steering rack was also fitted. Lastly the lightweight carbon ceramic brakes have been replaced in favor of more traditional iron rotors. The 570GT employs special tires designed by Pirelli to limit the road noise coming through to the cabin. The combination of changes means 82 lbs have been added to the overall weight and while the 570GT is much more comfortable than the standard 570S, performance has been hampered in the form of a slower 0-60 mph time (3.4 seconds vs 3.2 seconds).
The changes made to the 570S certainly make the 570GT the most luxurious McLaren made to date. Of course the dramatic dihedral doors remain though are redesigned to create a larger opening for better ingress and egress. The eight-way power seats are upholstered in soft leather as is the rest of the cabin including the rear luggage deck behind the passengers. The centrally mounted infotainment system allows for easy access to air conditioning, Bluetooth telephone, navigation, and audio controls. New for the 570GT is the panoramic roof which uses the same 18 percent transmission tint as the P1 hypercar. Also carrying over from the P1 is the TFT digital instrument cluster that allows for fine-tuning of vehicle systems.
With McLaren looking to head down market to face-off directly against the Porsche 911 Turbo, McLaren seems to have hit a home run on their first swing. Only time will tell to see if they can make it around the bases before Porsche gets them out. The McLaren 570GT competes against the Chevrolet Corvette ZO6, Mercedes AMG GT S, and the Porsche 911 Turbo.
