But this is McLaren, a company that calls a car capable of 0-60mph in three seconds, with a price tag of £150,000, a "sports car". They don't do soft.
So what you see here is a slightly less bonkers version of the 570S, and part of the Sports Series that also includes the 540C. A spider version will follow.
The GT is built, as the monicker suggests, for longer journeys, with higher comfort levels. So, complementing the space under the bonnet, you get 220 additional litres of luggage space on the leather-clad touring deck, accessed via the clever side-hinged glass hatch, manufactured to open kerb-side, no matter if you're driving on the left or the right side of the road. The deck itself has lightweight noise absorbing and damping materials, along with the bulkhead.
The heated seats are electrically adjustable in eight ways, there's an enhanced air-conditioning system to cope with the P1-style glass roof, and Pirelli has developed bespoke P Zero tyres for the GT, to reduce transmitted cabin noise by three decibels with the use of a special foam. The exhaust system is also quieter than that of the 570S Coupé, and the usual McLaren upwards-and-outwards dihedral doors are soft-closing. It's as if someone with a crashing hangover designed this car; anything to reduce noise.
