    I really love these epic mag comparos.
    btw, I think its game over when mac makes 750lt. take 720 along with the usual upgrades and track tires will make it unbeatable.

    Not sure the 7xxLT will beat 720s in a drag race; it might if McLaren puts the senna motor in it (which wouldn't surprise me). Surely it will have more aero and usually that increases drag and slows the car down in a drag race. But for sure the car to beat the 720s will be the SpeedTail, probably by quite some margin.

    I too can't wait for the 7xxLT, or the SpeedTail, both will be amazing.

    I hope it does have the Senna mod engine. That power ban with lower grunt torque would be amazing in a grippy 7xx chassis. I’d like those monster brakes too. :D

    dont think they will put senna motor in 750. what ever aero it would give up to senna would be made up 10x by its superior looks. senna value would be plummet.

    Possibly but McLaren just have the one 4L engine. The Senna engine is an iteration of the 720S, and like I said I wouldn't be surprised if the 7xxLT is an iteration of the Senna. That has been modus operendi since the 12c. The Senna is more about body work and active aero than outright engine mods. A 750LT, if that is what it will be, is less than 10% PS off the Senna which is hardly noticeable.
