Two Years Later and It’s Still Rockin': the 2020 McLaren GT

Supercars are a class of vehicle unto themselves. These cars are often pampered and aren't used as anyone's daily commuter, which makes the 2020 McLaren GT a great choice. Why look for things like cargo space and fuel tank size when you can have a head-turner with butterfly doors for the occasional spin?

Life with the 2020 McLaren GT

It turns out, the 2020 McLaren GT is good for even more. This is a supercar that you could drive more than once or twice a month, with room for a duffle bag or even groceries if the mood takes you. 
Consider the question, "Could you live with the 2020 McLaren GT?" One lucky writer at
MotorTrend
was able to answer this for themselves, as the recipient of a three-month loaner car. Folks, that's 90 days of the stuff that dreams are made of, and the McLaren did not disappoint.

What sets the 2020 McLaren GT apart from other supercars?

You'll be pleased to know that the McLaren GT delivers on performance, with a top speed of 200 mph. MotorTrend found the seats to be "surprisingly comfortable." And while you would expect otherwise, the narrow and curved windows actually offer more than sufficient visibility.  
The supercar averaged 19.5 mpg during the three months that MotorTrend drove it, and highway speeds garnered an efficient 23.7 mpg. And the 19-gallon fuel tank means that you could even take the McLaren for a road trip without making frequent pit stops.
The McLaren has Sport and Manual modes that you can switch between, but only if you activate this feature. The rear-load space is also quite spacious for a supercar, so yes, you can take it shopping if you so desire.

The 2020 McLaren GT does have a few quirks

MotorTrend admitted that the 2020 McLaren GT could be "fussy" and "fragile" at times. They reported that there were some odd issues with the tire pressure warning light going off and on, and the clock would mysteriously reset itself each night. Oddly enough, the optional glass roof doesn't come with any type of blind. You'll want to bring your sunglasses or a brimmed hat to protect you from the unavoidable interior glare. 
While these are not issues you'd expect with a car that costs $232,195 new, don't let these minor annoyances deter you. If you shop for a used McLaren, their Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) cars come with a one-year warranty that has no mileage limits. Buying used can save you some serious change, as a CPO 2020 McLaren GT costs around $194,950. 
All in all, the 2020 McLaren GT has proven to be a comfortable—and even slightly practical—supercar.
