McLaren has unveiled its all-new Solus GT, a single-cockpit hypercar born in the virtual racing world which has now been made real. Priced at just under $3 million USD and limited to 25 units, the car was designed for the track — coming “as close to the experience and feel of driving a Formula 1 car as you can get.”
First realized as part of the Vision Gran Turismo project, the radical silhouette arrives with an aircraft-style canopy, halo-style roll hoops, and a closed cockpit entered via a dramatic sliding glass canopy. Made with rigid carbon-fiber monocoque, each McLaren Solus GT weighs in at less than 1,000kg and the naturally-aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine generates 828 BHP and 1,200 kg of downforce, running 0 to 60 mph in 2.5 seconds. Stepping inside, drivers are surrounded by a curved 180-degree windshield and greeted with a Formula 1-inspired steering wheel. Racing seats are molded individually for each owner.
