The shift in the way the world works has eliminated all stereotypes of supercar owners. The idea that an individual stepping out of a McLaren is always wearing a fine three-piece suit has been put to rest. Individuality drives the inspiration behind not only fashion but also the automotive lifestyle. Supercar manufacturers like McLaren have adapted to this with the implementation of the McLaren Special Operations (MSO) division, giving customers the ability to think outside the box. This week’s Wheels X Wardrobe focuses on not only the seasonal change but also the blank canvas for fashion as a supercar owner. The choice of wheels is the uniquely designed 2020 McLaren GT, a modern take on the daily drivable supercar.

The McLaren GT reimagines the spirit of traditional Grand Touring, offering the engaging drive McLaren is known for, as well as the space, comfort and usability expected of a GT. Though comfort, space and usability are hallmarks of Grand Touring, no McLaren would be complete without abundant performance. The McLaren GT features a 620PS 4.0-litre, twin-turbocharged V8 mated to a 7-speed SSG transmission that delivers linear, seamless and relentless acceleration. The performance statistics speak for themselves: 0-100km/h (0-62mph) in 3.2 seconds, while 0-200km/h (0-124mph) is dispatched in 9.0 seconds. One of the most defining elements of the new McLaren GT – and arguably what will cement its position as the new segment leader – is its dynamic prowess. The suspension, steering and brakes are all bespoke to the car and are optimized to provide an outstanding Grand Touring drive experience with inherent balance, responsiveness and precision, and with ride comfort setting new McLaren standards.
