The Geneva Motor Show kicks off next week and the show wouldn’t be complete without some fancy new supercar. This time around, McLaren is one of the automakers stepping up the plate. It will unveil a new version of its 650S called the 570GT.
Let’s start with the super cool, super McLaren, design. It includes the classic dihedral doors that the automaker notes open with a more upward arch. McLaren calls the design a “glasshouse” with its glass panoramic roof that extends back into a large rear glass hatch. This back window hatch opens on a hinge that allows drivers to access the 7.8 cubic feet of cargo room. This extra compartment is in addition to the 5.3 cubic feet luggage compartment that the 570GT and 570S Coupe have in common.
Improved sound proofing creates a quieter interior with the glass roof using Sound and Solar Film technology. The tires are also extra quiet with Pirelli’s specially developed P Zero tires that reduce cabin noise by up to three decibels with their Pirelli Noise Cancelling System technology. Just because the cabin is quiet doesn’t mean that you’ll want to keep it that way. The model gets an eight-speaker McLaren Audio Plus system. There is an optional 12-speaker Bowers and Wilkins system as well.
McLaren says it will go on sale later this year with a starting price of $198,950.
