That's a statement of intent for the future I'd say, all those single seater converts, looks like they are building a team for a GTE run in 2-3 years, give them a few years in GT3 as prep to pull out potential GTE guns
Bryan Sellers for McLaren factory drive!

Bit of a thought to ponder here.

Zak Brown said McLaren were considering GTE a while back

McLaren just decided to move GT production in house

Factory guns Rob Bell, and Alvaro Parente are again racing in GT Am, a fine opportunity to get more of an idea of the series and LM

Garage 59 are running in the support road to Le Mans race, with none over than Chris Goodwin, Mclarens lead GT development and test driver.

Is it me or is all starting to point towards some low level research into a GTE entry

Love it to be in 2018 but realistically 2019?

What do you think about this McLaren 675lt tested yesterday in Nurburgring?
In the note bet by a new GT3 variant to me does not seem so, I find the rear diffuser very small to be a GT3.

Could be GT4 or single-make series. My thought also was that the non-existent rear diffuser means no GT3, GTE.

Realistically anything going forward would be based on the 570 or 720 and the 675LT is not the latest model so I don't see why they would build something off unless it a mule of some kind.

Mclaren have spoken about single make series before, and this does look closest to a cup class style of car

The idea of a single make series is discussed earlier on in this thread

I do agree this is not GTE or GT3, the 720s will be the new car for that,

And the 570s GT4 is new enough not to need replacing

Most likely a mule. Makes no sense to develop a racing version of this, for McLaren outdated, car.

Other possibility is that it will be a special version of the 675LT. Maybe even track day only.
