Default McLaren GT - side scoops, etc

Mclaren really screwed up. The rear side scoops are huge! The doors open all wrong. Has space for luggage but can it really be enough? The engine is not in the front, and the transmission is all wrong.

They probably won't sell any of them.

LOL, like the sarcasm.

I suspect that scope is probably not too far off the C8's, although I suspect the C8 will have a little big of the scoop detail on the top of the door, but nothing like the huge wing we've see so far. I wonder where McLaren hid the door handle/release/etc? Or does it have electric doors?

If you zoom in you can see what looks like a pad right inside the scoop.

I'm a McLaren guy, but the proportions are all wrong on that car.

Compared to sales numbers of the C8? No, they won't sell many of them. In 2018, McLaren sold 4800 cars total.

Not a fan, but it looks better than the C8 renders I've seen. Doesn't hold a candle to the 720S, which is just gorgeous IMO.

Oh yeah I forgot the most common complaint in the C8 section. It is so ugly!

I agree the 720s is better looking. But I would still own any Mclaren if you guys would just help me out with a gofundme

Seriously? I get the fact that you hate the C8 as we've seen it so far....I'm not thrilled with it either....but that McClaren is stunning.

It's the whale shark, plankton-sucking mouth and overly complicated design detail.

I saw one last weekend and it had a large golf bag in the back. Impressive that they made that much space in an exotic.

I saw one last week with a large golf bag in its mouth.
