McLaren has unveiled its 720S GT3 racecar as part of a series of announcements that ramp up its activities in GT racing.
The 720S, which replaces the 650S GT3 which launched in 2014, will begin testing in 2018 and launch with customer teams in 2019, fully compliant with GT3 regulations and eligible to compete globally in all GT3 race series.
The MonoCage II carbon fiber structure will provide the structure for a mid-engined, rear-wheel-drive car. A race-prepared version of McLaren’s 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 M840T engine will provide the power source, through a six-speed, sequential shift motorsport transmission. The bodywork of the 720S GT3 will be formed from both composite and lightweight carbon fiber with a bespoke aerodynamic package. The suspension will comprise tried and tested adjustable dampers and coil-over springs, front and rear.
