McLaren Motorsport - McLaren Glasgow

McLaren Glasgow are one of ten global locations making up the McLaren motorsport retailer network and one of two McLaren dealerships within Europe who are authorised to sell McLaren motorsports products and services. Additionally, there will be full Motorsport aftersales support at McLaren Glasgow covering parts, servicing and technical back up.

McLaren have been competing in all corners of the globe for well over 50 years pushing boundaries and collecting silverware. Competing in GT3 and GT4 championships worldwide for the past six seasons, the creation of the McLaren Motorsport Retailer Network will bring customers closer to the racetrack than ever before.

“Motorsport retailers represent an important milestone for McLaren Automotive – strengthening a core part of the business, and bringing the world of road and track models even closer together,” said Joylon Nash, Executive Director, Global Sales and Marketing, McLaren Automotive. “Motorsport has been, and will continue to be, a core value to the McLaren brand which truly was born on the track, and this runs through the DNA of each and every product that we hand assemble."

McLaren 570S GT4
Introducing the McLaren 570S GT4, the competition-specification GT4 car that’s ready to put you straight into pole position.

McLaren 720S GT3
Welcoming the McLaren 720S GT3 race car- the fearsome, world-class track counterpart to the extremely powerful 720S road car.

McLaren 570S GT4

The track-only 570S GT4 shares the same carbon fibre MonoCell II chassis shell as its namesake from the McLaren Sport Series. This is the first time; the road car technology has been translated over into the GT4 category.

The McLaren designed and developed 3.8-litre twin turbo V8 M838TE engine found in the road-legal Sports Series model has been placed into its track-focused counterpart. The seven-speed seamless shift gearbox is also a familiar addition, transferring power and speed to the track via the rear wheels.

The 570S GT4 presents a unique aerodynamic package which includes: a GT4-specification high level rear wing, mounted on aluminium pylons, a greater front splitter and reformed floor assembly. Precise and rapidly responsive power steering provides safe and natural balance with every turn.

Under the GT3-inspired bonnet sits an additional front centre high temperature radiator with exit ducts. These upgrades have been designed with a focus on lap times, the aerodynamic performance and cooling aspects of the McLaren 570S GT4 ensure that is has the ability to performance in the most extreme race conditions worldwide.

Carbon fibre and aluminium have been used to re-structure the bodywork, which widens both the front and rear to accommodate the centre-locking lightweight cast magnesium alloy wheels and Pirelli racing tyres. Two-way adjustable motorsport dampers with coil-over springs have been fitted to the front and rear, as well as an on board air jacking system. The driver’s protection maintains top priority – the 570S GT4 is further enhanced with an FIA-approved roll cage, a fire extinguisher system and a six-point race harness to keep the driver securely in place as their speed and cornering force rises.

It is tailor made for the most competitive racers in the most competitive racing series such as, GT4 or the Pure McLaren GT Series. The McLaren 570S GT4 is a car with a clear goal. To race and to win

McLaren 720S GT3

The race-prepared McLaren 720S GT3 uses the same 4.0-litre, twin turbocharged V8 M840T engine as the road-legal 720S, but is driven through a six-speed sequential rather than a dual-clutch transmission.

The cabin features a state-of-the-art roll cage, a fixed carbon Kevlar racing seat, a six-point harness roof-hatch extraction system and side-impact foam. The driver’s protection maintains top priority.

The MonoCage II carbon fibre structure used in road-ready 720S is used in the 720S GT3 – the composite and lightweight bodywork create an optimal aerodynamic frame. The suspension comprises of four-way adjustable dampers and coil-over springs, in the front and rear, as well as an air-jack system; driver-adjustable traction control and ABS. Aero efficiency has been significantly revised due to the use of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) in the front and rear of the 720S GT3. The 720S GT3 has been designed with a focus on raw power and lap times.

To experience the raw, unadulterated power of the 720S GT3 is to know the true meaning of engagement between driver, car and the track.
