McLaren 750LT Long Tail Mule
McLaren is understood to be readying a faster, lighter Long Tail version of the 720S for launch next year, and a prototype caught testing appears to confirm it.
Although this mule appears to be a standard 720S with some modifications, telltale cues include Gurney flaps and a substantially larger front splitter. Although the traditional Long Tail extended rear end doesn’t feature in this early mule, the extended spoiler plastered in tape suggests engineers are testing for such bodywork modifications prior to completing them.
McLaren has yet to confirm whether it will use the 750LT name for the Long Tail model, but a 750hp figure is expected.
’21 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Mule
This is a mule for the ’21 Jeep Wagoneer, caught flexing in Death Valley, California. The Wagoneer and larger Grand Wagoneer will be based off the ’19 RAM 1500 platform.
Wagoneer models will get independent rear suspension for better ride as well as interior packaging to fit in a third-row seat. Adjustable ride height is also expected to be lifted from the RAM. It’s predicted that V6 and V8 engines will be offered, while a new inline-six with a turbo and 48-volt mild hybrid system is also expected to be introduced on the Jeep models. A plug-in hybrid variant is also projected after initial launch.
Expect to see the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer as early as spring 2020, likely at the New York Auto Show.
’20 C8 Corvette in Rapid Blue
Here’s the ’20 Chevy Corvette Stingray in Rapid Blue, providing a more complete look at the new color. The bright-blue hue is notably lighter than the Elkhart Lake Blue Metallic shared earlier.
The prototype seen here is wearing the optional Z51 performance package, has a body-color rear spoiler and the optional carbon-flash double five-spoke wheels. It was caught around the Milford Proving Grounds undergoing testing.
