The McLaren 720S embodies our relentless quest to push the limits of possibility. Lighter, stronger, faster. It’s all of these and more. But how it makes you feel is altogether something else. Prepare to push the limits of what you thought possible in a supercar.
An innovation of the technology first seen in the McLaren P1™ hypercar, the MonoCage II is a one-piece carbon fibre tub that now includes the roof. Unique to the supercar category, this high-strength, low-weight passenger cell provides unrivalled rigidity, resulting in thrilling driving dynamics and exceptional protection for you and your passenger. The MonoCage II, unique to the 720S, extends over the engine bay and includes wider door apertures that open into the roof.
The immense power of the 720S requires an equally responsive chassis. Proactive Chassis Control II was born from the findings of a five-year PhD course at the University of Cambridge. It gives you enormous ability on all road and track surfaces. Data from an array of sensors enables the 720S to better read the road and select a set-up that maximises grip. From a winding mountain pass to a challenging racetrack, you can push the limit with breathtaking control.
One of the most sumptuous leathers in the world extends from the electronically operated and heated seats to the dashboard, headlining and rear luggage area. Finishing touches are provided by exquisite Iridium brightware and details in dark Satin Graphite.
The beating heart of the 720S is a new and fearsomely powerful M840T engine with 720PS. Press the start button and the twin-turbo V8 comes alive with a potent growl that ignites your senses and focuses your mind. Bathed in vibrant red light, every part of this 4.0-litre unit is refined to maximise power, sharpen responses, and increase fuel efficiency.
