McLaren Automotive has teased a “surprise announcement” for next week’s 88th Geneva Motor Show in its McLaren Senna ‘Carbon Theme’ (featured) reveal, in which it will “introduce the Senna and detail corporate developments.”
The rumours of McLaren moving into the GTE ranks continue to grow, building off the marque’s highly-successful GT3 and GT4 customer racing efforts, which have won countless races and titles over the past few years.
DSC sources suggest that should McLaren go GTE racing, it wouldn’t be with a 720S – the base model for its new GT3 car – but instead, a newer product.
The 2018 road-legal track-focused McLaren Senna, which is the headline model for the UK-based manufacturer’s Geneva presence, could therefore be the likely candidate for a new GTE chassis with its 4-litre twin-turbo engine and road legal homologation making it an ideal basis for a racing effort.
McLaren’s press conference at Geneva is set for 10:45 CET on Tuesday March 6th.
