Lighter, faster, and even more dynamically capable than its McLaren 650S predecessor and with unparalleled levels of interior space and sophistication, the new McLaren 720S has a breadth and depth of abilities that involve and satisfy a driver in a way that no competitor can.
One glance at the 720S identifies it as a bold reinterpretation of McLaren’s design language. Rooted in aerodynamic principles applied to a beautiful form with nothing superfluous about it, the McLaren design ethos has produced some astonishing cars. The new 720S, immediately and undeniably a McLaren, is perhaps the most distinctive and remarkable yet.
The new M480T engine powering the 720S continues the lineage of McLaren’s multiple-award-winning, twin-turbocharged V8 engine series. This new 4.0-litre engine generates a maximum of 720PS and up to 770Nm of torque, delivering truly astonishing levels of performance: standstill to 100km/h (62mph) takes less than 3 seconds and just 5 seconds later the car has passed the 200km/h (124mph) mark. Maximum speed is 341km/h (212mph). Braking is equally impressive, the new 720S coming to a halt from 200km/h (124mph) in just 4.6 seconds, covering 117m. And the efficiency goes beyond velocity –the new McLaren 720S delivers 10.7 litres/100km in the official combined fuel economy cycle and CO2 emissions of 249g/km in the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC).
