As absurd as Road & Track’s sub 10-second quarter mile time is for a vehicle that’s powered by only two wheels, DragTimes reports that a bone-stock McLaren 720S in New Jersey managed to scoot through the quarter mile in 9.79 seconds with a trap speed of 147 miles per hour.
British engineering company McLaren announced in his account on the social network Facebook design sketches racing modification supercar McLaren 720S.
We can expect the McLaren-developed 720S GT3 to use the same 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 as the road auto, but it’ll need to be heavily restricted to less than 500bhp for some racing series, with the power varying depending on regulations.
According to Autosport, the 720S GT3 will be developed in-house at McLaren, whereas the 650S GT3 was developed by CRS racing.
Development of the 720S GT3 is set to get underway next year, although technical details and a timeframe for its launch has not yet been disclosed, other than stating that it will make its “competitive debut” with customer teams in 2019.
McLaren CEO Mike Flewitt said: ‘The 720S GT3 will provide a stunning race-going addition to our Super Series product family and drivers will now be able to hone their skills under expert guidance backed-up by our technicians at the circuit and our motorsport retailers away from it’. That is, the cars will be maintained by McLaren.
We’re looking forward to seeing it tearing up the world’s race tracks… McLaren will prepare and run the 570S GT4 cars itself with a first test at Silverstone in March.
