McLaren’s Vision Inspired Solus GT

Solus GT

Mclaren released its new Solus GT concept car, which as a version was premiered in Gran Turismo Sport under the name McLaren Ultimate Vision Gran Turismo.

Due to its appearance and premium edition, the number of copies is limited to only 25. So if you were planning to buy a new Solus GT, I think the offer is quite limited.

Bruno Senna, racing driver and prototype tester for the Solus GT, told Bloomberg that the car’s handling is “something completely different” compared to other McLaren cars. 

With all that said, the new Solus GT only the lucky can expect.

The design is primarily inspired by the F1 interior. For example, the steering wheel is a slightly changed version of McLaren’s F1 steering wheel, which further emphasizes that this is a very interesting car that is exclusively intended for the track.

It ‘revs’ more than 10,000/min and McLaren turned the Vision Gran Turismo concept into a Solus GT with a V10.

Gran Turismo has had a huge impact on the automotive world, but perhaps nothing is as wild as the new McLaren Solus GT. The creation was first presented as part of the Vision GT project game, and now it has been brought to life in the real world. 

The unlimited single-seater supercar debuted today at Monterey Car Week in California. It was first seen at Gran Turismo Sport in 2017 when it was called the McLaren Ultimate Vision Gran Turismo. It will now be seen on real racetracks around the world with a 5.2-liter V10 and a seven-speed sequential gearbox.

That engine revs at more than 10,000 rpm and produces 828 hp (609 kW) and 648 Nm of torque. The total weight of the Solus GT is less than 1,000 kilograms, and McLaren claims a time from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 2.5 seconds. A maximum speed of 322 km/h is also stated.
