McLaren 570GT is one plush supercar (pictures)

With a focus on long-distance driving, ride comfort and plush amenities, the 570GT strays away from McLaren's usual angle on performance.

Cars are Andrew's jam, as is strawberry. After spending years as a regular ol' car fanatic, he started working his way through the echelons of the automotive industry, starting out as social-media director of a small European-focused garage outside of Chicago. From there, he moved to the editorial side, penning several written features in Total 911 Magazine before becoming a full-time auto writer, first for a local Chicago outlet and then for CNET Cars.

The 570GT is the second of three bodystyles in McLaren's Sports Series group, its most "affordable" collection of supercars.

Whereas the 570S and the 540C are all about performance, the 570GT takes more of a grand-touring approach.

Its spring rates are 10 to 15 percent softer than its brethren, for a more relaxed ride, and the front and rear sway bars have been adjusted to increase ride quality over mixed surfaces, as well.

The new rear luggage deck is one of the larger differentiators between the 570GT and the other members of Macca's Sports Series.

The 570GT's rear glass hatch is lined with carbon fiber and hinged so that it opens toward the curb, whether your vehicle is left-hand or right-hand drive.

A 3.8-liter, twin-turbocharged eight-cylinder engine powers the 570GT, gushing out 562 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque.

The 570GT will hustle to 62 mph in 3.4 seconds, completing a quarter-mile in just 11.1 seconds at 132 mph. Top speed is 204 mph.

As you might expect, the luggage compartment is leather-lined.

But that's not the only creature comfort awaiting a lucky owner.

The 570GT comes standard with leather upholstery, power-adjustable heated seats, parking sensors, an electric tilt-and-telescope steering wheel and soft-close doors.

An eight-speaker audio system is standard, but you can opt for a 12-speaker Bowers & Wilkins setup for a bit more cash.

The interior also features a standard panoramic fixed glass roof with the same tint as on the McLaren P1.

The exhaust is also quieter on the 570GT than it is in the 540C or the 570S.
