Couldn’t quite stomach the £750,000 asking price for the Senna, but still want a McLaren that’s ready to win all the track days? The first option that springs to the mind is the incredibly focused 600LT, but if you’d rather something from Woking’s ‘Super Series’, there is a solution that doesn’t involve waiting until the 720S is given its own ‘LT’ treatment.
It’s called the ‘Track Pack’, and it consists of a range of tweaks to prep the already very capable 4.0-litre V8-powered supercar for smashing round your favourite circuits.
Building on the spec of the 720S Performance, the Track Pack includes a range of exterior modifications including 10-spoke forged wheels, a lengthily-named MSO Defined Gloss Finish Visual Carbon Fibre Active Rear Spoiler and a new sports exhaust.
Flip up one of those lovely dihedral doors, and you’ll find carbonfibre racing seats which are available in two sizes - regular, or touring, the latter being for the more generously-proportioned track day driver. Behind the seats, there’s a titanium bar to which the new six-point harnesses are fitted. The finishing touch is the MSO Defined Satin Visual Carbon Fibre Extended Gearshift Paddles. McLaren really doesn’t care for brevity when it comes to naming these things…
If you want to upload videos of your heroic helmsmanship to YouTube, you can leave your trusty GoPro at home, as the Track Pack includes a trio of cameras built into the car. Telemetry is recorded too, but not just for you to watch back later - drivers will be given a real-time feed which will even include “video footage to spot missed apexes and premature or delayed braking points,” McLaren says.
Track Pack-enhanced examples of the 720S will cost £224,700 and up, representing an increase of £28,360. It’ll be available to order early next year.
