Well the Speedtail was heavily advertised as a Hyper GT, McLaren mentioned that practially every time they talked about it. And the special variants of the McLaren hypercars seem to follow what they're originally designed for (for example the Senna did get the "LM" makeover plus the faster GTR, similar story with the P1), while their "normal" cars get pretty much whatever. If the Speedtail were to get a special variant I'm 100% sure it'd keep its Hyper GT-ness, and would not be a hommage to a race car.Yeah cool, but why the 720S instead of the Speedtail?
Likely just much easier to sell. Beyond the wheels which McLaren had already began re-manufacturing for the Senna LM, & the front fenders and roof scoop developed for the 765LT, one could've ordered a regular 720S in these color combos through MSO if the imagination was there at the time. It probably wouldn't have been hard to develop some new exterior touches for the Speedtail just as easy, and recoup the costs back in the limited run, but given the cost differences, the 720S should be far easier to move.Yeah cool, but why the 720S instead of the Speedtail?
Cool idea but come on, make a middle driver seat and at LEAST 250MPH to even use the iconic McLaren F1 name or Fa1 accomplishment. 15 years later and the current “modern” version doesn’t exceed 241MPH?!?!
