Model Overview

The highly praised, award-winning McLaren 720S took the supercar world by storm upon start of production in 2017. A worthy replacement for the 650S, it’s claimed that the 720 is over 90% new in comparison to its predecessor – with performance figures to match. Now producing 710bhp (or 720ps – hence the name), it can go from 0-62mph in an astounding 2.8 seconds, 0.2 seconds quicker than the 650S and, perhaps even more impressive, faster than the 675LT by a tenth of a second.

The 720S utilises a 4-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine, sat in McLaren’s MonoCage II carbon fibre monocoque – similar to that found in the legendary P1. This allows masses of power, whilst keeping the curb weight of the car at an impressive 1,419kg for the Coupe version, and 1,468kg for the Spider. The function of the carbon tub doesn’t just stop at the weight savings. MonoCage II also allows for much easier entry and egress from the car, as well as better visibility for the driver compared with its predecessor.

Stylistically, the 720S was controversial when it was first revealed at the Geneva Motor Show, but has slowly won the hearts of McLaren fans around the world – particularly with the release of the 765LT, which gave it a more track-focused and aggressive look. The large air ducts that surround the headlights are a dramatic deviation from the styling of the 650S and 675LT, but serve to increase airflow and improve the aerodynamics on spirited drives. The body of the 720S – reportedly based on the great white shark - boasts flowing lines and smooth curves, allowing for air to flow over and through the car as it attacks the road, as well as an active rear spoiler, which acts as an air brake when slowing from high speeds.

The interior sees a subtle, yet impactful redesign over the 650S. Most notably, it is the first McLaren model to feature the folding gauge cluster in the dash, which activates when the car is placed in “Track” mode and purposefully limits distractions for maximum concentration on track. The central screen and console are tilted towards the driver, creating an incredibly driver-focused, cocoon-like feel to the interior and minimising the amount that the driver needs to look away from the road. McLaren’s signature dihedral doors are also, of course, present in the 720S and its convertible sibling, the 720S Spider

The 720S Spider allows the driver and passenger to enjoy the mind-blowing performance and the noise of the twin-turbo V8 in true drop top style. While the Spider weighs in slightly heavier than the Coupe, performance isn’t lost in comparison. It boasts the same power, 0-62mph time and precise handling/suspension setup, but with the added benefit of the wind in your hair when blasting through country lanes.
