On Monday, January 14th, McLaren Beverly Hills celebrated the launch of the new McLaren 720S Spider. The vehicle stretched its legs on a morning open-air drive throughout Beverly Hills, showcasing a sleek Supernova Silver body and luxe Vintage Tan interior.
Introducing the McLaren 720S GT3, the track-only racing supercar available in 2019. McLaren Automotive has confirmed a stellar driver line-up for the competitive debut of the 720S GT3 in the Gulf 12 Hours at Abu Dhabi on December 13-15. Lining up on the grid will be McLaren Automotive Factory Driver Ben Barnicoat (GB), joined by Alvaro Parente (PT) and Shane van Gisbergen (NZ).
The star trio boasts an impeccable pedigree, with Parente and van Gisbergen both holding Platinum status under the FIA driver-rating system – the highest available – and Barnicoat ranked as Gold. With such a strong line-up, the works-entered car – entered under McLaren Customer Racing – is an exciting prospect for the Gulf 12 Hours. Now in its eighth year, the endurance event will see a combined grid of over 30 GT3 and GT4 cars battling for outright honours over a two-part race, each of six hours’ duration, on the 5.554 km Yas Marina circuit – home to the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
The U.S. Grand Prix in Austin, Texas marked the singular American race of Formula One. McLaren Beverly Hills paid tribute to McLaren’s racing heritage and the anticipated U.S. race with a private viewing of the Austin F1 broadcast, including the opening ceremony and race.

Drivers also had the opportunity to drive track-only cars.
