The New Super Series McLaren 720S Is Finally Official

Leak after leak and rumor after rumor the McLaren 720S is most definitely hotly-anticipated reveals at this years Geneva Motor Show but now we finally have the official shots and information from the British manufacturer.

As you would expect, it is built around a carbon monocoque with a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 nestled in there capable of pushing out 710 horsepower. This allows the new Super Series machine to hit 100km/h from standstill in just 2.9 seconds and go all the way to 340km/h. Other notable features are;

  • Dry weight of 1282 kg
  • Special ‘Welcome Sequence’ when unlocking the car*
  • Variable Drift Control system
  • Quick-shifting seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox
  • Precise electro-hydraulic power steering
  • Carbon-ceramic brakes
  • Magnetorheological damper that does away with traditional anti-roll bars
*deploys the mirrors, sweeps up the indicator lights, switches on welcome lights, and illuminates the engine bay as the driver approaches.

The whole car is enveloped in fresh aluminum bodywork showing off a new design language which has created a divide among the McLaren fans. Personally the new headlight design does not suit the car but I have been told by multiple people that it looks outstanding in person so I will wait to see one when it arrives in South Africa.
