A Grand Tour for the GT
The new McLaren GT is a true grand touring car, and the company wants to prove it by taking the car to various countries in Europe. This is a move to let buyers see the car ahead of production. It will also expose the GT to a far wider in-person audience than McLaren would be able to do otherwise. According to Carscoops, the GT will start out in the UK and then travel to the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, France, and Spain.
The rest of the McLaren lineup will join the GT at the various locations across Europe. Everything from the 570S to the new Senna will be there as well. While those other cars will be on location, the GT is the main event for each spot.
David Gilbert, McLaren Managing Director for Europe, said that it only makes sense for the GT to take a tour of Europe because that’s what it’s designed to do. “We would like to invite McLaren customers and followers to visit us on the McLaren GT’s summer Grand Tour, which will be a great opportunity to admire the new car’s elegant design as well as a chance to discover more about the whole McLaren range.”
