McLaren 720S successor, Ferrari 499P: Today’s Car News

McLaren is working on a successor to the 720S, a car that is believed to sit above the recently unveiled 671hp Artura plug-in hybrid. The successor is coming soon and is expected to be a major update to the 720S rather than a major redesign, much like the earlier 650S was a major update to its MP4 12C predecessor.

Ferrari returns to endurance racing at the highest level this year with an entry in the premier hypercar class of the World Endurance Championship. The Prancing Horse will contest the series with its new 499P LMH racer and a driver line-up that includes a former Formula 1 driver.

Hyundai’s parts and accessories division, Hyundai Mobis, has built an Ioniq 5 prototype equipped with its e-corner in-wheel motor and steering technology. The technology has the potential to achieve new levels of manoeuvrability, including enabling a vehicle to turn in place or drive in a sideways motion.
