Wow.. The new McLaren 720s is an absolute masterpiece and it is easy to see why! They really have stolen the show at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. As usual, you may have to wait quite a while to get one for yourself as McLaren has already presold every 720s to be made.
We will get straight to the point with this one. We will begin with a little highlight overview and some specs on the new McLaren 720s. After that, we will let the pictures speak for themselves. Enjoy!!
Highlights and changes to the McLaren 720s :
The 720-ps total translates to an entirely respectable 710 horsepower, accompanied by a peak 568 lb-ft of torque. A new version of the twin-turbocharged V-8 that has sat at the heart of every modern McLaren sees its displacement increased from 3.8 to 4.0 liters, and it boasts new turbos, cylinder heads, and pistons, plus a new crankshaft. The company boastfully claims that the M840T engine is 41 percent new. Transmission duties continue to be handled by a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with all torque directed to the rear wheels.
The 720S also gets new control arms and wheel knuckles but sticks with the hydropneumatic suspension that fights body roll with hydraulic craftiness. Spring rates have been increased by 10 percent in the front and 20 percent in the rear, with harshness avoided by a smarter Proactive Chassis Control II system that uses a total of 21 sensors to tune ride and handling according to conditions and to the chosen driving mode. These include Comfort, Sport, and Track, but there’s also a new drift function for the stability-control system that helps any decent driver quickly perform like a pro.
Compared with the 650s, at 178.9 inches in length, it’s up just 1.3 inches, while the 105.1-inch wheelbase of the two cars is identical. McLaren claims the 720S delivers 50 percent more downforce than the 650S but with less drag and a 15 percent improvement in cooling efficiency.
McLaren 720s 0-60 Times :
McLaren claims a 2.8-second zero-to-60-mph time for the 720S, just a tenth quicker than the 650S. But as speed builds, so does the improvement, with the 720S’s claim of 7.8 seconds to 124 mph being 0.6 second faster and the somewhat ridiculous 21.4-second zero-to-186-mph time a full 4.0 seconds quicker. The claimed top speed is 212 mph.
