Available at McLaren Glasgow.
race-prepared McLaren 720S GT3 uses the same 4.0-litre, twin turbocharged V8
M840T engine as the road-legal 720S, but is driven through a six-speed
sequential rather than a dual-clutch transmission. The cabin features a
state-of-the-art roll cage, a fixed carbon Kevlar racing seat, a six-point
harness roof-hatch extraction system and side-impact foam. The driver’s
protection maintains top priority.
The MonoCage II carbon fibre structure used in road-ready 720S is used in the 720S GT3 – the composite and lightweight bodywork create an optimal aerodynamic frame. The suspension comprises of four-way adjustable dampers and coil-over springs, in the front and rear, as well as an air-jack system; driver-adjustable traction control and ABS. Aero efficiency has been significantly revised due to the use of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) in the front and rear of the 720S GT3. The 720S GT3 has been designed with a focus on raw power and lap times. Whilst being motorsport counterpart to the iconic McLaren road car, the 720S, 90 percent of components for the 720S GT3 have been changed or optimised. A combination of changes to the chassis, bodywork, aerodynamics and suspension deliver a racing machine which has been extensively enhanced. Designed to excel under the most strenuous circumstances, during endurance races and on the most demanding circuits.
Since making its competitive debut with McLaren customer teams during the 2019 season, the 720S GT3 has been a force to be reckoned with. The 720S GT3 made its race debut at the famous Albert Park circuit in Melbourne, Australia in early 2019 and swept the board, claiming pole position and race victory.
To experience the raw, unadulterated power of the 720S GT3 is to know the true meaning of engagement between driver, car and the track.
