Mysterious McLaren GT Set for World Premiere May 15

By -

New McLaren GT is the fourth vehicle under company’s Track25 plan, shares DNA with Speedtail Hyper-GT.

McLaren has released some fine cars over the years, like the 570S, 650S, 720S, and the most recent model, the Senna. Now, though, the British automaker is looking at the grand touring segment to experience all that the lads in Woking, England can do.

Thus, on May 15 at 8 a.m. Eastern on the Internet, McLaren will unveil its newest car, simply called GT.

Per McLaren, the GT is the fourth car built under the company’s Track25 plan, a plan that will ultimately see 18 new cars built by 2025, all of them high-performance hybrids. This particular model also is the only one to have ties to the Speedtail Hyper-GT, the limited-edition three-seat hybrid hypercar making 1,036 horsepower, and capable of speeds up to 250 mph with a zero to 186 mph time of just 13 seconds.

Alas, not much is known about the McLaren GT beyond the teaser photo and video. We guess this just makes everyone wanting to know all there is to know about the supercar even more.
