2017 McLaren 570GT Brings Race Car Level Tech To The Streets
The 2017 McLaren 570GT is just a tad bit lower than the 570S. Just a bit lower. That is actually fine for those who might find the 570S to be too much. Even so, the 2017 McLaren 570GT still brings race car level tech to the streets.
The McLaren 570GT is sleek from any angle. Its curves start on the front and then gently slopes away at the back. The design speaks not only of elegance but that it is built with speed in mind. This is in keeping with McLaren's commitment on bringing performance and quality in its cars.
Protection and light weight are in mind as the 570GT has a carbon fiber cell that is around the passenger compartment. This protective hull has been called the MonoCell II by McLaren. The roofline has glass which makes the interior much brighter in daylight.
The McLaren570GT might be an entry-level car, but it is not entry level in any sense of the word. There has been no compromise in it. Not certainly on its performance. It can go up to 60 mph in just 3.3 seconds with its turbocharged 3.8 V8 engine located at the rear. This engine can generate up to 562 hp with its twin turbochargers, according to Forbes.
Like many top performance cars, the 570GT is a two-seater, but that doesn't mean it lacks any space. Aside from its front compartment, it also has a small rear compartment just on top of its engine bay. This can be accessed by having the hinged glass window panel opened up sideways for easy access. This rear compartment has been termed as the Touring Deck by McLaren, per Car and Driver.
Even though the engine can emit much heat, any item placed on the Touring Deck won't be affected by it. This has been amply demonstrated by Car and Driver on its test run with the car. The car also handles well even on rough surfaces, as it has softer suspension both front and rear.
The 2017 McLaren 570GT brings with it a balance of grace and speed. It has been designed with speed in mind, in accordance with McLaren's commitment to quality and performance. The Camaro ZL1 is a modern take on a classic car, as a report suggested.
