All-New McLaren ‘Grand Tourer’ Teased

The all-new McLaren ‘Grand Tourer’ is a step closer to its full reveal with McLaren removing some of the body-hiding cladding. 

The McLaren ‘Grand Tourer’ was announced at the recent Geneva Motor Show and overnight the company removed some of the body-hiding cladding to give a better idea of what it will look like. McLaren said while the ‘Grand Tourer’ is still wearing camouflage it would “begin to peel off this disguise this May”.

During validation testing, McLaren said the car has performed flawlessly but that the removal of the “shape-changing and noise-inducing panels” would allow engineers to complete further validation tests. Like, for instance, a 1600km drive from McLaren’s development base near Barcelona, Spain, back to the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking, England.

“To be completed in one stint with two occupants and a full complement of luggage, this is one of many long-distance drives that will help the team to confirm the new model is both comfortable and refined over the long distances a grand tourer is expected to consume … one rule that McLaren won’t be breaking,” McLaren said.
