  • Teaser for new McLaren GT car

    Although McLaren didn't unveil a new car at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show, it did announce something new is coming this year. The brand's CEO Mike Flewitt announced Tuesday that the newest car to be introduced under the Track25 business plan will be the brand's interpretation of a Grand Tourer or GT car. Critically, he said the car will not be part of any existing model series and will be something unique and standalone. That rules out the possibility of a 720S GT, for example. McLaren applied the GT strategy in the past to the 570 nameplate to create a more comfortable and...
