“…a revolutionary leap forwards, both for our brand and the supercar segment.”Mike Flewitt, Chief Executive Officer, McLaren Automotive
“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” said Mike Flewitt, Chief Executive Officer, McLaren Automotive. “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.”
One of the key points in the design of the new Super Series is the absence of radiator intakes on the side of the car; this function is carried out instead by the unique ‘double-skin’ aerodynamic form of the dihedral doors, which channel air to the high-temperature radiators that cool the mid-mounted engine.
Performance: 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) takes less than 3 seconds and just 5 seconds later the car has passed the 200 km/h (124 mph) mark on its way to a maximum speed of 341 km/h (212 mph). Braking is equally impressive, the new 720S coming to a halt from 200 km/h (124 mph) in just 4.6 seconds, covering 117 m. Additionally, the extreme efficiency of the engine also goes beyond mere velocity: the new McLaren 720S delivers 10.7 litres/km combined fuel economy and CO2 emissions of just 249g/km in the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC).
The new McLaren 720S is now available to order from McLaren retailers, with the first customers scheduled to receive their cars in May.
