McLaren tests prototype updated 720S at the Nurburgring?August 20, 2019
An unusual prototype of the British supercar McLaren 720S was seen on the Nurburgring race track. It is possible that this is a long-tail model.
Here is what we know. Earlier this month, a report from a foreign publication, Piston Heads, indicated that McLaren was developing a version of its 720S supercar with the so-called “long tail,” such brand designs typically receive the Long Tail prefix. The bottom line is that the model lengthens the back. The official presentation of the 720S LT should take place by the end of the year.
McLaren Automotive CEO Mike Flewitt almost confirmed that in 2017, after the success of the 675LT with the same “long tail”, the same version will appear for the current 720. He said: “We will definitely make another Long Tail and supercar 720 they are great suitable for this. “
We now have a video of testing the prototype McLaren 720S on the Nurburgring race track. If McLaren is developing the 720S-based Long Tail, then he will need to conduct extensive testing before offering the car to customers, and the Nurburgring will be the perfect training ground for this. The McLaren LT is more than a car with an extended rear. The automaker does a lot to improve driving experience, often adding more power to the engine, reducing weight and improving aerodynamics. This improves handling and performance, which leads to increased performance of the supercar.
The front panel of the prototype seen has a more aggressive appearance than the standard 720S. There are additional aerodynamic “wings” on the front bumper, the front splitter has become larger. This is another proof that we are definitely not looking at the usual 720S version. But the back of the car looks unchanged.
If this is a long-tail version of the McLaren 720S, then we will see it before the end of the year. Customers should expect more than 710 horsepower to be delivered by the upgraded 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine. The machine should also receive improved dynamic performance and handling.
