In about decade, McLaren has put out eight cars. The next could be a 720S Longtail. McLaren has no plans of slowing down, and the longtail version of the 720S makes quite a lot of sense. According to PistonHeads, one of the two cars coming to the company’s lineup next year will be a 720S Longtail. The other is the already reported McLaren roadster or speedster.
While the speedster or whatever, McLaren ends up calling its roofless car will be impressive, the longtail version of the 720S will arguably be the more important car because it’s more of an all-around, use-it-everyday car. The vehicle will likely get more power than the regular 720S and be improved in many of the ways that people would like to see the car improved.
This Longtail move will also probably earn the supercar a new name. In the case of the 600LT, that car got its start as the 570S. Motor Authority suspects the name will by 750LT, but there’s no indication beyond the naming schemes of the previous Longtail cars that this will be the case.
There are no concrete details on what McLaren will do with the model, but we suspect it will have revised styling but still fit in with the McLaren lineup easily. This should be a wonderful Longtail model, and we’re excited to see what comes of it.
