McLaren's Solus GT has a V10 that revs past 10,000 RPM

Gran Turismo has influenced the automotive world, but nothing is as wild as the McLaren Solus GT. This once-virtual creation first appeared in Gran Turismo Sport's Vision GT project. All 25 units are sold and can only be driven on closed circuits.

The unrestricted single-seater supercar debuted at Monterey Car Week. The McLaren Ultimate Vision Gran Turismo debuted in Gran Turismo Sport in 2017. Now it will race with a 5.2-liter V10 and a seven-speed sequential gearbox.

This engine revs to over 10,000 rpm and produces 817 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque. McLaren aims for a 0-60 mph (96 km/h) sprint time of less than 2.5 seconds. The Solus GT will top 200 mph (322 km/h), according to the report.

McLaren CEO Michael Leiters said, "The McLaren Solus GT is a radical concept vehicle originally created for virtual racing." Engineered without road or race regulations, it embodies McLaren's pioneering spirit.

During the build process, buyers can get a "racing driver experience," including a custom-molded seat.

They'll also get an FIA-approved racing suit, helmet, and HANS device for their unrestricted supercar. This car's exterior design is shocking because it's so different from its siblings.

Racing driver and prototype tester Bruno Senna said driving the Solus GT is "a whole different planet" compared to other Mclaren supercars. “This is the closest to a top-end race car,” he said. "It's easy to drive, but buyers need a coach."

All 25 McLarens have been sold, so McLaren knows these drivers. Unofficial rumors put the price around $3.5 million.
