Mclaren builds some of the best performance cars in the world. Mclaren GT was first introduced in 2019 and launched in 2020. It was indeed a stunning entry into the Grand tourer segment by Mclaren, it has everything you expect of a Mclaren, be it the looks, the drama and the performance. Acceleration is quick, and the Grand tourer will still manage to cruise well over 200 mph, which actually is fairly significant. The standard fully loaded Mclaren GT is priced at $210,000.

The interior of the GT gets manually-adjustable leather sport seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, as well as a seven-inch touchscreen display with Bluetooth, FM radio and so on.

2021 Mclaren GT Maintenance, Reliability and Warranty

The Mclaren GT comes with a carbon tub underneath which makes the structure more solid and should protect its occupants in a high-speed crash. In terms of reliability Mclaren doesn’t really boast about it. Though times have changed a lot since Mclaren’s inception and their cars are improving significantly but Unfortunately, the crash test results for the 2021 Mclaren GT are not available at the moment.

The pricing varies in different states due to destination fees and state taxes. Interestingly different states provide different leasing and financing deals for cars and in some cases the difference is significantly large. In the case of Mclarens however, the prices remain relatively the same across the states thanks to it being an import.

Mclaren has recalled the Grand tourer and also cars such as the 570GT and Senna due to a fuel tank issue. An NVH pad under the tank can collect water, leading to corrosion of the tank. Hope all this has been taken care of in the upcoming cars of 2021 including the newer Grand Tourer.

Warranty

Mclaren comes with an all-inclusive 3-year unlimited mileage warranty. Mclaren's Extended Warranty goes much further. Giving you assured service for up to 12 years. 

Criteria

Period

Basic warranty

3 years/ unlimited miles

Drivetrain warranty

3 years/unlimited miles

Roadside assistance

3 years/ unlimited miles

Mclaren's warranty covers all of the electrical and mechanical failures and even includes all the standard parts and the repair charges. Available for all Mclaren Super Sports Series cars under 10 years old, with less than 75,000 miles.

Miles per Dollar

Since we do not have a complete idea of what the entire cost of ownership would be, we are unable to calculate the MPD ratio. The said ratio is achieved by factoring the average number of miles driven in a year to ownership costs like financing, insurance, fuel costs and service/ maintenance costs.

2021 Mclaren GT Buying Advice

As of now, the Mclaren GT is available only in a single trim, so our advice would be if you are looking for a fast and comfortable ride, then go for it.

Mclaren's new GT is competitively priced against its rivals. With an asking price of $210,000 after all, you're buying a Mclaren. The Aston Martin DBS Superleggera, for instance, goes for a huge $300k ($309,995 to be exact) and the Bentley Continental GT will set you back at $202,500. Bear in mind that a Fully-loaded Mclaren GT could go about $300,000+, be careful while speccing it.

Is buying a used Mclaren GT a good idea?

When you check the average maintenance cost of these cars, one would obviously think of buying a used car. The Mclaren is known for its performance and even in a fairly used condition it still gives you the same vibe, but where it lacks is when it comes to the technology offered. You might as well do some aftermarket custom changes in terms of features, apart from that if you can handle the average yearly maintenance cost, then you are good to go.

2021 Mclaren GT Engine and Performance

9.9/10

Mclaren Grand Tourer is almost as fast and similar to every other sports car on the road. It's a fast car that tops speed of 204 MPH with quick acceleration. The Grand Tourer is steady in the traffic but when you switch into sports mode, that’s when you experience true sport’s car feeling. The twin-turbocharged V8 engine produces 612 hp which is more than enough for you to cruise around. The engine is mated to a 7 speed DCT and comes in RWD drivetrain configuration. The peak outputs are lower but responsiveness and low-rev performance have been improved significantly.

Mclaren GT for sure is a standout car but don’t get us wrong; when you actually compare it in terms of performance, we feel it just got lucky due to its impressive power train or else the Aston is the winner here with its performance aspects. The way a Mclaren puts its power down is simply a display of the level of engineering they craft.

2021 Mclaren GT Acceleration And Braking Performance

The Mclaren GT's ability to do 0-60 MPH in just 3.1 sec is truly impressive nonetheless, a top speed of 203 MPH and a quarter-mile timing of 10.7 sec.

It truly stays on top here against the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera which doesn’t stand a chance unlike its other competitor the Bentley Continental GT, which comes very close to challenging the Mclaren GT because of its AWD.

2021 Mclaren GT Fuel Economy

7.0/10

The Mclaren GT’s ability to go over 200 mph is obvious as with any other car in its segment, the mileage is on the lower side of things, but it's lightweight body design compensates to some extent. Mclaren claims that its GT will do 15/22/17 mpg city/highway/combined.The Mclaren GT has a 19-gallon fuel tank, which should give it a maximum range of around 386 miles.

The Mclaren GT is fairly competitive here but when it comes rivaling the Bentley Continental GT it lacks behind, but nonetheless it does offer you decent economy, almost as good as any car in this segment.

2021 Mclaren GT Interior

8.0/10

The Mclaren is known to build more performance-oriented cars than comfort but the 2021 Grand tourer should offer fairly well-cushioned, comfortable carbon-fiber seats. When you step inside the cabin of the Grand tourer you'll notice that it is more spacious and is designed in a way that you get more light inside the cabin area. It makes the Mclaren feel a bit more in line with competitors such as the Continental GT. Tinted glass roof opens up the cabin nicely for more light and at the front Mclaren offers excellent visibility. The rear carbon fiber hood adds an even greater sense of space, and no part of the car is subjected to fakery, each part has its own role to play.

It's clear from the outset that the Grand Tourer is able to carry more than its more performance-minded siblings. The combination of carbon fiber and leather is well done. Mclaren has outclassed itself with this interior.

Mclaren is not known for offering loads of trunk space in the rear, in fact, it has always lacked when it comes to cargo space, but this new Grand Tourer comes with a fair amount of space. As with most other rear-engine cars, the Grand Tourer offers a front trunk that's large enough for two mid-size bags. The rear upper structure of the Grand Tourer has a carbon fiber design that creates more space and small items can be stored in a shallow center console storage tray or glove compartment.

How’s the 2021 Mclaren GT infotainment system?

The Mclaren, the infotainment system in the GT is inspired by jets. No wonder the display screen is fitted in a more narrow vertical. This seven-inch touchscreen display offers high-quality images and smooth transitions almost like a smartphone, but interacting with it isn’t easy when driving. The new 2021 Grand Tourer specs are not available yet. But can expect significant changes in the infotainment features. In the older version, it had various features which included such as Bluetooth streaming, a satellite navigation system, and satellite FM and radio. All good but sadly it didn’t come with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The Grand Tourer comes with four speakers as standard, which you can upgrade to a 12-speaker Bowers & Wilkins system.

9.9/10

What sets it apart from its competitors and siblings is its integrated tailgate into the boot of the car, the exhaust is a bit lower compared to its other siblings each and every vent on the Mclaren Grand Tourer has some purpose to it. The vehicle comes with the rear 21 inch tires (the biggest of all Mclaren’s) and 20-inch tires at the front. The Grand tour is 4.7 meters long, the same as the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera, it is quite a unique and elegant design and it also helps the GT to decrease its drag coefficient and increase its cargo capacity.

The GT even has several air intakes at the front and rear for the engine and brake assembly and also helps the GT in aerodynamics. Upfront, the GT has LED headlights, the ever-stylish dihedral doors, and the rear is finished off by two exhaust tips emanating from the diffuser which isn’t fake like many. Adding to this is its overall body is made of carbon fiber, which enables the car to be controlled effectively, and sublime handling experience overall. Mclaren offer up to 30 different paint colors, and with only silver being offered in the standard category.

Compared to the Superleggera and the Continental, Mclaren is the lightest of the two, hence accelerating quicker and when it comes to ground clearance it is lowest between the three beasts. Mclaren does offer better width and shorter wheelbase making it more firm on-road and in turn gives you more confidence while driving the Mclaren GT.

2021 Mclaren GT Safety

8.0/10

The all-new GT has not been crash-tested yet, so official safety ratings are unfortunately not available at present, all we can do is assume is that Mclaren Grand Tourer is well built and they put all the effort in making the car as safe and solid as possible when you consider their experience in the motorsport industry. But it does come with safety features such as advanced traction control and stability control, Impact-resistant carbon fiber shells, with all this in mind it’s safe to say that the Grand Tourer is as safe as it’s competitors.

The new Mclaren Grand Tourer sadly doesn’t come with advanced driver assistance features like lane keep assist and rear cross-traffic control and even lacks a blind-spot system. As far as Safety is concerned, It comes with ABS brakes, and all-new sport-tuned electronics stability and traction system, which will take a while to get used to. 

2021 Mclaren GT Competition

2021 Mclaren GT Vs Aston Martin DBS Superleggera

Aston Martin is known for its beautiful design with speed and luxury the DBS Superleggera is a piece of art in itself. It is probably the best looking car when you compare with its competitors. Aston Martin DBS Superleggera with its 5.2L twin-turbocharged V12 engine is the fastest amongst its competitors. When it comes to the interior the Superleggera beats the Mclaren Grand Tourer with its all-leather upholstery, and when it comes to infotainment the Aston Martin’s tie-up with Mercedes has done good for them, it is way better than the Mclaren's infotainment system. With all this being said the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera is a beast when it comes to speed and performance, but all this comes at a cost. A pricey one at that.

Aston Martin DBS Superleggera

2021 Mclaren GT Vs Bentley Continental GT

When it comes to building the best Grand Tourer there isn’t anyone else that can compete with Bentley. Bentley's well built interior and more torque on offer give a tough competition to Mclaren. The Bentley even offers endless customization. It is the heaviest here weighing up to a massive 5060Ibs but manages to move around the weight efficiently, sort-of that is. It is the cheapest amongst its competitors, but the Continental doesn't offer the drama the Mclaren has with its butterfly doors and the low stance. The choice really comes down to personal preference.

 Bentley Continental GT

 

2021 Mclaren GT Final Verdict

The Mclaren GT is a seriously good sports tourer that can be comfortable for a drive to the office or around the track. Whichever scenario it may be, the GT outperforms its competition. If you have the means to afford a $200,000 car, we suggest you go ahead and spend some on the 2021 Mclaren GT. Not only does it get you a performance bargain you get a Grand tourer that can help along the weekend trips comfortably.
