Check out the new McLaren 720S Supercar
As some of you may or may not know, the Geneva Motor Show is in full swing until the 19th March where many of the world’s biggest and best brands will be displaying their newest vehicles, as well as offering an insight into what the future motor industry could look like.
McLaren have done just that by introducing their new 720S Supercar which is the firms first second-generation model, that will replace the 650S. Even though the 720S was designed to replace the 650S, the model is 90% new, so really, it’s a whole new car.
The McLaren carries a top speed of 212 mph and can reach 0-124 mph in just 7.8 second, as well as producing 710 bhp. It has been said that one of the main priorities when producing the vehicle was driver engagement, which is why the team focused their attention on visibility, access, and packaging to ensure the best product would be delivered.
Moreover, the 720S features eye-socket LED headlights which bring air into the vehicles lower temperature radiators as well as delivering a 15% boost on cooling efficiency. In addition, the McLaren gains dihedral doors which open at an 80-degree angle offering plenty of room to get in and out of the vehicle without any trouble. Furthermore, the driver has the opportunity to choose whether they would like to drive manually or in full automatic mode.
The vehicle gets a fully integrated roof structure so you won’t need to duck to be able to see properly, as well as gaining much slimmer pillars which will increase visibility. Moreover, the new 8.0-inch display screen allows the user to select information such as preferred driving mode, acceleration, layouts and other important information.
The new 720S is set to go on sale in May this year and has a price tag of a whopping £208,600. McLaren have said that they have plans to introduce 15 new models into the market by 2022, with many of those models featuring hybrid power. We look forward to seeing what the brand have in store.
