It has been only a day since the new McLaren 720S was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, but already people are speculating about other variants it will inevitably spawn. That’s sort of McLaren’s own fault since they added fuel to the fire with the Velocity MSO. But here we offer you an early look at the McLaren 720S Spider and its GT3 racing version.
The Spider version of the McLaren 720S is something we can expect to see sometime towards the end of 2017 with a folding hard top just like the one in the 650 Spider. As for the 720S GT3, presented here with a wide body racing aero kit and a unique take on the Gulf colors, it’ll probably come out in about two years.
The idea of a racing McLaren 720S is not an outlandish one. Just check out this promo for the car with McLaren factory driver Bruno Senna. It is full of hints:
Not just that, the 720S’ new 4.0 liter 720 horsepower V8 engine is also a racing motor at heart:
