v8supes should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
The United Autosport Mclarens look markedly different than the other Mclaren 720s GT3s. Is there a reason for this? What other cars have changed aero?

All of them had aero tests to check if they were in the required performance window

Fair enough, I did read the article but I thought it was just the Lexus that had the updates because of how old it was.

I just presumed that they’d run the cars exactly how they’d be running in SRO or IMSA.

For what it's worth, if you are referring to the swan necks and new front bumper on the 720S, that's the Evo package that rolled out worldwide last year. I'm not sure if there are some minor aero allowance differences like gurney heights etc. but visually at least the other LMGT3s seem to be more or less the same as their SRO versions in terms of more noticeable bodywork components.

It seems the mounting of the swan neck is bigger, the wing profile is different, the end plates are different, the rear arches look more "boxy" and the rear diffuser more aggressive.

It doesn't really matter i was just surprised that it was different given as you say it was only given the EVO package last year and the only article that id seen about aero changes in LMGT3 was for the Lexus.

The new Lexus GT3 was out testing at Sebring https://www.automotiveaddicts.com/95...oogle_vignette. Looks slightly different than before but has a nice V8 rumble to it.

Pechito López said in some interview with Campeones or Carburando that the car is meant to be launched in 2026.
