I wonder if it will have some of the 720GT3 body styling/engine performance enhancements, although I do realize the GT3 is strictly a race car.
Thought about this more, here is what I would like to see:
- 50+ HP yes certainly (they will say its 30 or sth ...
- Louvered fenders MSO option
- P1 roof scoop maybe MSO option
- P1 wing no but sth different
- S-duct unlikely
- Better exhaust note certainly with new shorter titanium exhaust
- Fast nose lift (like Ford GT) No won't come
- Android auto/Apple Carplay No will be same system as 720s
Dunno ... quiet pointless rendering imo ... just added a comical large wing and removed some back parts ... certainly nothing close to what we will seeRendering

Well the car will be 3 years newer ... btw. They will likely offer Senna owners a faster car sooner than later (after the speedster) and all will be good ...How can McLaren improve upon the 720S' performance and not make the car too close to or faster than the Senna? That'd upset many many Senna VIP customers.
It will have slightly less power than Senna, and will be heavier, and have less downforce.How can McLaren improve upon the 720S' performance and not make the car too close to or faster than the Senna? That'd upset many many Senna VIP customers.
The 720S is already giving the Senna trouble from a dig and if you add more power with less weight along w/ gripper tires, the Senna may not catch until well past 100 MPH and by then most stop light grand prix would've been over.It will have slightly less power than Senna, and will be heavier, and have less downforce.
So it can't outperform the Senna.
For the Traffic Light GP, the 720S will already beat the Senna. But as others have already said, that's not what the Senna is for.The 720S is already giving the Senna trouble from a dig and if you add more power with less weight along w/ gripper tires, the Senna may not catch until well past 100 MPH and by then most stop light grand prix would've been over.
Mr Flewitt's musings that he would like to do what Porsche have done with the recent GT cars ie non numbered sounds like he really hasn't grasped it...... the mooted 750 units coupe and 750 units spider for the 7XXLT will likely prove to be too many from the depreciation perspective.It will be interesting to see how this plays out. 675LT’s were going for premiums initially, now they’re at 50% MSRP and falling because there is no buyer demand. 600LT’s were hyped, now dealers are sitting on multiple units of Coupe and Spiders with heavy discounts offered. Nearly every 675LT owner and most 720s owners are claiming all how bad they want a 7xxLT. No question, it will be a sick car with more carbon, more HP, a few less lbs, and a heavy price premium. The real question will be what makes you think it will not do what the 675LT and 600LT are proving to do when McLaren then comes out with the 800s. McLaren’s issue is McLaren - there cars are phenomenal, but they simply have no grasp on supply and demand and just keep pumping out cars. Ferrari’s approach going forward is more models but fewer units of each model, only time will tell how that works out for them. I want a 7xxLT too, but I’m just not sure my wallet does. The joy per dollar of depreciation just may not be worth it.
