The British manufacturer presents the McLaren 720S GT3X, a track-only, non-professional variant of the 720S GT3. The Woking-based manufacturer debuts the McLaren 720S GT3X, a racing variant of the British supercar designed for track use only.
710hp or 740hp – Due to the strict limitations imposed by racing regulations, the GT3 variant is actually less powerful than the road-going version. But in the case of this GT3X (which does not adhere to the regulations), the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 develops 710bhp, a figure that can be increased to 740bhp by activating the push-to-pass system, promising around 200bhp more than the ‘standard’ GT3.
These numbers are made possible by the adoption of larger turbines and exhaust manifolds managed by a renewed cooling system. An optional passenger seat allows an eventual second occupant to share the onboard experience with the driver, while the bodywork features significant aerodynamic updates over the GT3.
Designed to excel at Track Days – The braking system has also been updated, as has the roll cage. The cockpit has been reduced to the bare essentials, with lots of carbon fiber elements left free to the eye. Still mystery about time and cost of marketing, but if you’re thinking of excelling (with ease) at very exclusive track days (since McLaren 720S GT3X is not approved for the Championships), this could be the right car for you!
