    Re: McLaren on a winning streak

    McLaren didn´t say any word officially. Al this numbers, which are as time passes getting better and better, are from various sources. They have heard it on the event but not from officials. 

    So let´s wait and see what we will get.

    I find it too Japaneese... 


    Re: McLaren on a winning streak

    Ohh, I love how the line that comes up on the aft side of the skirt continues in the panel gap of the rear fender, especially in combination with the line of the underside of the rear bumper...

    I love it when design curves are aligned like that *looking at you here Porsche, with your purposefully misaligned day time running lights*

    Haha, and yet still no one got a good one from the front, the most important part!

    Re: McLaren on a winning streak

    Front should look the same as the camo one from several months ago, though obviously painted will look better.

    Where that photo leaked back in Sept, I was sitting right in front of Frank having dinner angel

    His comments was that's close, not quite, but close.

    Re: McLaren on a winning streak

    Yeah, it looks like there is a bit of a wrap around the front fender/bumper combination, and also the edge under the door window seems a bit weird.

    However, when I compared that picture to the lava orange one, it seems like the real deal. The only thin I can guess is when you lighten up the pic of the orange one, in real life the continuation of the directional light into the blinker on the front fender seems a bit more pronounced; to make it look like it is one unit "bridged" by a piece of body panel.

    Nah, everyone is drooling over those high-mounted exhaust tips.  Maybe start a new trend, where non-limited cars have high exhaust, and the special ones have (old-style) low exhaust..... until of course we have no exhausts. Smiley

    "The 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 in the 2nd generation #McLaren Super Series will redefine performance, helping deliver 0-124mph in just 7.8 sec"

     

    675LT does it in 7.9sec

    488GTB 8.3sec


    Re: McLaren on a winning streak

    Will be interesting to see if it's with Pzeros, Corsas, or Trofeos.

    Did I told you that 0-200 in under 7,5 is wishful thinking... Smiley


    Re: McLaren on a winning streak

    Yup, you were right. Will be interesting to see what it tests at.

    .1s quicker than the 675 LT is similar to Ferrari claiming each new model is always exactly .5s quicker around Fiorano. I have a feeling that the extra power, torque, and similar tires will put the 720S further ahead of the 675 LT than just .1s.


    Re: McLaren on a winning streak

    7.8 is ridiculous!!!  although its still a bit far away from P1's 6.8.  its done only with Corsa tires.... that's Amazing!

    Re: McLaren on a winning streak

    It is very cool how Frank hides the side intakes with a double panel on the door, an evolution of the P1 and 570.

    Re: McLaren on a winning streak

    Now that we have lambo about to show their hand at the ring, and porsche hinting at their sim time on the ring, when will macca show theirs, if they have one that is?


    Re: McLaren on a winning streak

    The front looks like an Agera to me, and that's a good thing.

    Yes, it would be time for McLaren to drive the Ring and publish time for comparison.

    Would really interest me to see the time of the 720S vs the Performante (I will have to decide between these two models soon).

    If we are lucky, the German magazine SportAuto will drive these two models in the next month and run them through their Supertest with a Ring lap time.
