The McLaren 720LT is an astounding pieces of kit, mixing 9s quarter-mile times with surprising drivability and impressive track performance. However, it's obvious that the platform's dynamic potential hasn't been fully exploited yet, but all this is about to change with its upcoming Longtail version, which should introduced the 750LT badge.
The McLaren 750LT (the numeric part of the name might change en route to showrooms) has been rumored for quite a while now, while the British automotive producer has all but confirmed the newcomer.

Regardless, it looks like a test car for the upcoming supercar has show up at the Nurburgring, as you'll be able to notice in the piece of spy footage below.

A brief DVLA (this is the UK's driver and vehicle licensing agency) check for the number plate of the prototype shows this has been registered back in November 2016.

Despite the development time and the fact that the 750LT is expected to bow in March next year, at the Geneva Motor Show, this prototype sports little changes at the back: these are limited to a lip for the rear wing and some tape.

Speaking of which, the test we have here car features a more prominent front splitter, as well as canards on the sides of the front apron.

Aero aside, the Longtail treatment means we'll get to enjoy a slight power bump, a noticeable diet, handling upgrades and a more aggressive overall setup.

And I'm extremely curious to see just how close to the stopwatch numbers of the Senna the 750LT will get. The first's 245-section front tires, $1 million price and aero-crazy styling means there are also less favorable reviews out there, so perhaps those who find there would be room to imprive the formula will be pleased by the Longtail incarnation of the already-brilliant McLaren 720S.
