• Video of the Day: 2020 McLaren 750 LT Testing On the Nurburgring

Yup – there’s another long tail on the way!

You didn’t think that McLaren was done making long tails, did you? Well, in case you did, we’re here to tell you that you thought wrong. The McLaren 720S is set to be the next model to be given the long tail treatment, and it should go by the 750S name. The name alone reveals that it should have some 750 PS (around 740 horsepower) which means it’ll deliver around 30 horsepower more than the 710-horsepower 720S. The particular model in this video is clearly a 720S that’s been converted for testing purposes, so it lacks some of the typical long tail aero, but there’s no denying that this is a mule for the 750 LT.

This becomes painfully obvious thanks to the more dominating splitter and sharp canards on the front fascia for increased downforce in the front. The rear is pretty void of any changes, but there is a roll cage inside. That roll cage won’t make it to the production model and is only there to protect the testing engineers in case something should go wrong as this baby tears ass around the Nurburgring as seen in this video. Expect the new 750 LT to be lighter, faster, and more track worthy than the 720 or the now-discontinued 675 LT.

And, since we know you’re curious about when we’ll see the official production model, word has it that we’ll see it at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show and it will be part of the automakers new Super Series lineup. But, we know you’re anxious to see the new 750 LT in action, so check that out in the video below!
