McLaren reveals all-new 720S supercar

McLaren has revealed its highly anticipated new supercar – the 720S.

Powered by a 4.0-litre V8 engine, the 720S produces 710bhp and is capable of reaching 60mph in ‘less than three seconds’ according to the British car maker.

The engine of choice in the 720S also makes a noticeable change from the traditional 3.8-litre unit used across McLaren’s current range of cars. The manufacturer says that the new engine is a higher-capacity version of the original, and claims that 41 per cent of the parts used are new.

The 720S’ exterior represents an all-new direction for McLaren. The swish logo-inspired headlights have been replaced by smaller units with large triangular surrounds. Thin daytime running lights also help give the front of the 720S a distinctive look.

The rear of the car also has a dynamic new look, with a more sculpted version of the taillight styling that first featured on the 570S.

Thanks to an updated version of McLaren’s Proactive Chassis Control, the 570S should continue the firm’s reputation for creating sharp, dynamic handling sports cars.

Mike Flewitt, chief executive officer of McLaren Automotive, said: “Super Series is the core of the McLaren business and personifies the blend of extreme performance, crafted luxury and unparalleled driver involvement that is the McLaren heartland.

“This is the first time we have replaced a product family and the new 720S is absolutely true to McLaren’s pioneering spirit in being a revolutionary leap forwards, both for our brand and the supercar segment.”
