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.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?
