McLaren Release Images of 720S GT3 Car
There have been many car unveilings lately, possibly too many to actually keep up with if you are not directly looking into the auto makers everyday. Today, we saw a few releases of the Aston Martin Vantage GTE car that will compete in the GTE class in 2018 against the Ford GT, Chevy Corvette, BMW M8, Porsche 911 RSR and the Ferrari 488 GTE.
McLaren released photographs of their latest flagship car turned racecar, the McLaren 720S GT3. The 720S GT3 will replace the very popular and successful 650S GT3. The Woking, England car maker will be providing customer race teams with the 720S for the 2019 race season.
The McLaren 650S was the replacement for the McLaren MP4-12C GT3 with a new aero package but not too many upgrades from the original GT3. The 720S has shown even in the street version to be a very competitive car with other makers and a completely new redesign if not a completely new car from the 650S. A whole new carbon monocage structure was designed for the 720S. The 650S GT3 was debuted and campaigned starting in the 2015 racing season.
The GT3 cars can be found on the race track at events such as the Blancpain Endurance Series, GT Asia Championship, Pirelli World Challenge and the European Le Mans Series.
