McLaren says 720S will definitely get a longtail variant

By Faiming_low on 17 Mar 2017 in New model

Attached Image McLaren Automotive Chief Executive Mike Flewitt has as confirmed that its second generation Super Series model will get a LT or longtail variant.

Car&Driver interviewed Flewitt recently and he felt that popularity of the hardcore LT model can be replicated for the second generation Super Series.

“The 675LT was a huge success. I was delighted from a market perspective, but also internally because we love that car. We have a huge enthusiasm for it. We’ll certainly repeat Long Tail, and now that the LT brand is established, if we announce an LT derivative of a car, then everyone will know what to expect: that it will be lighter, the chassis dynamics will be way sharper, and it will have more power. We’ll definitely repeat that in models going forward,” he said.
