McLaren’s New $3.6 Million Hypercar Is Based on a Video Game

The McLaren Solus GT is the real-life version of a McLaren Vision concept car that was featured in the Gran Turismo Sport video game. Legal to drive only on a track, the Solus GT debuted on Aug. 19 at the Quail car show during Monterey car week in Carmel, Calif.

Started in 2013, the vision concept component of the popular video game features futuristic but fictional cars from the likes of Mercedes-Benz and Lamborghini. Many production vehicles from Bugatti and Porsche are often featured in other video games such as CSR Racing and Forza. But the McLaren Vision GT that debuted in 2017 is the first from the brand to go from game to garage. 

Despite having the name GT, which can sometimes stand for "grand touring," the Solus GT is primed for anything but a casual cruise. Its naturally aspirated V10 engine gets 829bhp (840hp) and promises a zero-to-60 mph sprint time of less than 2.5 seconds. Top speed is 200 mph.go from game to garage.
