McLaren 720S Le Mans Special Edition revealed

McLaren has revealed a new limited edition of its 720S supercar built to celebrate the 25th anniversary of McLaren’s outright victory at the 1995 Le Mans 24 Hours with the F1 GTR. Combining a suite of unique design and trim elements, the 720S Le Mans Special Edition will be limited to 50 units globally, with just 14 of those available in Europe.

Most obvious of the changes are some motorsport-inspired elements from McLaren’s MSO department, including vaned front wing outlets, a roof-mounted air intake and new polycarbonate rear screen surrounding it. The wheels are also new, the five-spoke design having been spotted on a few bespoke MSO commissions before, but with a more overtly motorsport look than the 720S’s standard wheel selection.

2020 Mercedes-AMG E63 S prices and UK specs confirmed

Local pricing and specifications of the updated 2020 Mercedes-AMG E63 S saloon and estate have been revealed with the cars entering the UK in just one fully-loaded trim level. 

Priced at £98,370 for the saloon and £100,370 for the estate, the big Merc is targeted almost perfectly at its rivals from BMW and Audi, which spec-for-spec all hover around the six-figure mark. This is a pretty substantial jump over the £83k price point of the previous E63 S when it first appeared in 2017, but shows the high performance super saloon and estate market adjusting to suit buyer preferences.

Porsche Taycan to receive aerodynamic upgrades from TechArt

German-based tuner TechArt has been fettling Porsches for decades, so it only seems right that it should turn its hand to the all-new, all-electric Taycan. Though powertrain upgrades are unlikely to surface any time soon, it already has plans to add a suite of new aerodynamics components, wheels and cabin upgrades. 

The Taycan’s source of power may be divisive, but there’s little doubt that it is an attractive machine from the get-go. Nevertheless, TechArt has plenty of aesthetics modifications up its sleeve, beginning with a set of lightweight 22-inch ‘Formula VI’ forged wheels that can be fitted to all current Taycan variants.

Mercedes-AMG GT63 lifted to 789bhp by G-Power

Affalterbach’s GT63 S is the brand’s most powerful model on sale today, and second only to the wild SL65 Black Series as its most powerful model ever. This hasn’t deterred G-Power from lifting numbers even higher, however, with the German tuner now offering three different tuning packages.

Though it can increase power of any 63 model with the M177 4-litre twin-turbocharged V8, the GT63 is the star of the show. The brand’s most extreme tuning package extracts an additional 159bhp and 74lb ft of torque over standard, bringing total output to 789bhp and 738lb ft of torque – that’s more than the £203,000 Ferrari F8 Tributo
