Geneva Motor Show Cancellation Won't Affect McLaren's Plan To Reveal Something Awesome

Teaser / Comments

At its own private McLaren Motor Show.

In a bit of shocking news, the 2020 Geneva International Motor Show has been canceled due to concerns over the spread of the coronavirus. The show will not be rescheduled to a later date, so all of the major reveals that were set to take place there will have to be done elsewhere or on live streams. Some automakers have already announced when their former Geneva debuts will be revealed and now McLaren has announced its plans.

Some other automakers have scheduled live streams for their products but McLaren has been a bit more clever. With Geneva now canceled, the UK automaker will host the first annual 2020 McLaren Motor Show at its headquarters in Woking, England.

The McLaren Motor Show will include a live broadcast of the company's press conference, which will announce a "world premiere of the next chapter in the McLaren LT story." Since there already 600LT versions of McLaren's Sport Series cars, we assume this latest reveal will be the hotly anticipated LT version of the Mclaren 720S.

Rumored to be called the 750LT, this new track-focused supercar should produce well over 710 horsepower from its 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine. Expect the car to receive a significant decrease in weight compared to the 720S, which is already pretty featherlight at under 3,200 pounds. No other details or teasers were presented as part of McLaren's announcement.

McLaren will reveal the car on Tuesday, March 3, 2020 at 8:30 AM GMT / 09:30 AM CET, the same time it would have been shown in Geneva. The big auto show may have been canceled, but now automakers will have the opportunity to host their own private events and hopefully get as many eyes as possible on their reveals. McLaren and every other automaker that was set to be in attendance is making the best out of a bad situation.
