2019-08-19: McLaren roadster is new Ultimate Series machine

McLaren chief executive, Mike Flewitt, has used the Geneva Motor Show stage to announce that the company is going to 'redefine the rules of grand touring' when it releases its newest model in a few months' time. The as-yet unnamed GT, which will not fit into the brand's current Sports/Super/Ultimate hierarchy, has been glimpsed in this solitary image of a camouflaged development car, but Flewitt said it would be a 'sleek, beautiful and boldly elegant car' and one that maintains McLaren's philosophy of every design detail being present for a reason. It should also have a spacious and uncluttered interior, as well as being one of the most usable mid-engined machines of all time. Flewitt added: "The fourth McLaren to be introduced under the Track25 business plan will be our interpretation of the grand tourer. It will be a car that combines competition levels of performance with continent-crossing capability, wrapped in a beautiful lightweight body. It's a car that has been designed for distance and one that will also provide the comfort and space expected of a grand tourer - but with a level of agility never experienced before in this segment. In addition, it will be the lightest of grand tourers and by also having the best power-to-weight ratio, I promise it will be one of the quickest. In addition, it will be the only grand tourer to share its DNA with the 250mph McLaren Speedtail."
