Exploring McLaren’s Gran Turismo Sport and Its Unbelievable Virtual Features

And it has a fighter jet canopy.

McLaren has built a real-life version of the machine we first saw in Gran Turismo Sport.

This is the McLaren Solus GT, a realization of the radical McLaren concept car that was originally made for the world of virtual racing.

The single-seat, closed-cockpit car was unveiled during Monterey Car Week in California and is estimated to cost well over $3.6 million.

Just 25 examples will be made and all 25 are already sold.

The brand has really shown off its design prowess, as the car mirrors its virtual inspiration almost exactly.

And the design features set it apart from anything else that’s come before it.

First off, it has a fighter jet canopy. The brand new McLaren Solus GT

The sliding canopy opens to a single seat, which is positioned in the center of the car.

And with the single seat dominating the interior, there’s no room for a pᴀssenger.

But pᴀssengers were the least of McLaren’s concerns when designing this track car, as the Solus GT was created for the ultimate driver experience. Front view of the Solus GT Rear view of the McLaren Solus GT

The steering wheel takes its inspiration from Formula 1, and the dash display and controls are all designed to suit the тιԍнт confines of the track car.

To give its 25 customers the ultimate experience, McLaren has molded the driver’s seat to each owner’s individual body shape.

Designers also embraced new technologies, using 3D printed тιтanium components for the halo cockpit structure and roll hoop to keep its weight down.

While the Solus GT is completely unique, designers didn’t completely reinvent the wheel.

Just like every McLaren since 1981, the Solus GT is based around a carbon-fiber monocoque.

It weighs less than 1,000kg and has more than 1,200kg of downforce.

Powered by a naturally-aspirated 5.2 liter V10 engine, connected to a 7-speed sequential transmission, it can churn out more than 840PS (829hp).

 

The Solus GT can accelerate from 0-100km/h in just 2.5 seconds and reach a top speed of more than 320km/h (200mph).

McLaren says the first of its 25 customer cars will be delivered in 2023.
