McLaren has announced a new supercarOctober 26, 2018
The McLaren company has published a teaser for a special version of one of its supercars. The novelty will be created in collaboration with the “legendary British brand.”
What kind of brand in question, not yet reported. However, judging by the image, it is a special version of the McLaren 570GT coupe – the most practical supercar automaker. Such a car differs from the standard 570S in the presence of two luggage compartments with a total volume of 370 liters, and in more “soft” suspension settings.
McLaren 570 GT is equipped with a 3.8-liter V8 engine in two turbines, developing 570 hp and 600 Nm of torque. The engine works with a seven-speed robotic gearbox with two clutches. The supercar is able to accelerate from zero to 100 km / h in 3.4 seconds, and its maximum speed is 328 km per hour.
Currently, McLaren is also developing the fastest road car in its history – the Speedtail. The novelty will be the ideological successor to the F1 model, which for 12 years has kept the title of the fastest supercar in the world. Like its predecessor, the new hypercar will receive a triple cabin, where the passenger seats will be located on the sides and a little distance from the driver’s seat.
McLaren Speedtail will receive a hybrid powerplant based on a four-liter twin-turbine V8 unit, which will exceed 1000 horsepower. The first 100 km/h car will be able to accelerate in about two seconds, and its maximum speed will be 391 km / h, which is 2 km / h faster than the McLaren F1.
