McLaren has dropped new teasers of the all-new Grand Tourer ahead of its global debut at the end of this month. This yet-to-be-named GT is the fourth model under McLaren's Track25 business plan. 

Announced at the Geneva stage, the Gran Tourer will be powered by a mid-engine twin-turbo V8. The British carmaker claims that the McLaren Grand Tourer will be the most usable mid-engined car yet. The GT will also be the only new car to share its DNA with McLaren’s hyper-GT – the  Speedtail. So the new GT won’t be part of any of the company’s existing model Series and will be a unique and tailored model. It won’t follow the regular and boring McLaren naming strategy either. 

With the production-ready body, we can see that the GT flaunts the typical mid-engine's forward body. The McLaren headlights are sleeker, while there is an air intake behind the doors. The rear deck seems to be flat and edgier compared to a rather curvy front. The large wheels, narrow glasshouse and aggressive diffusers are all present, as well, giving the new GT a very sensuous stance. Moreover, the interior is slated to be spacious, uncluttered and modern, using only authentic, high-quality materials.

For the final stage of testing, the development team will run further validation tests, including a 1,000-mile drive from  McLaren’s development base near Barcelona, Spain, back to the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking, England. The development team has already tested the GT over thousands of miles in hot and cold climates across the globe. So now the last testing drive will be completed in one stint with two occupants and a full complement of luggage. This long-distance drive will help the team affirm that the new model is both comfortable and refined over long distances.
