The grand tourer vehicle category has a long and storied history that dates back to the earliest days of automobiles. Often on the larger end of the spectrum, these cars are designed for high speeds and long distances — making them true driver’s cars. Even then, with a few notable exceptions (we’re looking at you BMW 8-Series & Bentley Continental GT) the category has been a bit stale as of late. But the folks at McLaren are looking to change that with their brand new 2019 GT.

Unmistakeable in its styling, this vehicle is the work of McLaren through and through — even with greater luxury and more interior space (20.1 cubic feet) than any other of the marque’s vehicles. And it’s got the supercar-level performance figures to match, courtesy of a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged McLaren V8 engine that’s good for 612 horsepower and 465 foot-pounds of torque. Mate that with its new Proactive Damping Control suspension system, a sophisticated in-cabin infotainment system, and a lightweight carbon fiber structure with aluminum body panels and this grand tourer is set to inject a shot of life into the vehicle category. Pricing starts at $210,000 with deliveries expected at the tail end of this year.

Purchase: $210,000+
