In fact, some of you might just take a look at the virtual proposal we have here and feel this is even more appealing than the actual, engine-behind-the-seats 765 Longtail, especially as far as the rear view is concerned.
Note that the said label didn't stick to relocating the engine and this the passenger cell. As such, the front apron is now slightly different, with the "eye sockets" of the supercar being left behind in favor of a more traditional approach that doesn't mix light clusters and airflow manipulation.
Now, developing a second platform from scratch couldn't be justified for a single model. So if McLaren were to come up with such hardware, the architecture would probably have to serve the replacement for the GT, as well as other, even spicier models that would battle it out with the likes of the Ferrari 812 Superfast and the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera. And yes, this imaginary battle highlights the fact that, despite its front-engined GT tradition, Lamborghini is also absent from this side of the market.
For the record, McLaren's mid-engined supercars are among the coziest in their segments, so the DNA for such an expansion is already there.
