"The McLaren GT is designed with long-range touring in mind, so a Grand Tour of the European continent is entirely fitting for our exciting new model, which will open up our brand to an important sector of the high-performance car market," David Gilbert, Managing Director Europe, McLaren Automotive. "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."

The new McLaren GT is, like all McLarens, mid-engined, which makes it unlike typical grand tourers. That being said, there's a combined 570 litres of luggage space in both the front and rear, while in the middle there's comfy seats and improved sound-proofing which makes the car quieter than an Aston Martin DB11 at motorway speeds.
