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.
The 720S Spider is built on a carbon fibre structure that’s incredibly light. And incredibly strong. This means we didn’t need to add any additional strengthening to accommodate the Retractable Hard Top (RHT). So there’s barely any additional weight compared to the 720S Coupe. This creates a drive that’s every bit as thrillingly uncompromising. The RHT retracts at the press of a button and fully folds in under 11 seconds. It’s near enough silent. And so well designed you can operate it while travelling at 50km/h. Plus, a unique glazed option with electrochromic glass means you can still see the sky in all its glory – even with the roof up.
The organic-looking form of the 720S Spider is no coincidence. It looks this way because of painstaking aerodynamic optimisation. It’s as if it’s been sculpted by the air itself. McLaren engineers and designers work in a symbiotic way… drawing on each other’s knowledge and experience. They shrink-wrapped the body of the car around the carbon fibre Monocage II-S structure and the mighty engine it contains. To maximise efficiency and performance. To minimise drag. The 720S Spider’s design is testament to our dedication to aerodynamic principles and extreme performance.
The McLaren 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine generates a scintillating 720PS and 770Nm. The ultra-lightweight Monocage II-S sets the stage for best-in-class acceleration – unlocking 0-200km/h (0-124mph) in just 7.9 seconds. And contributes to a dry weight as low as 1,332kg with all lightweight options fitted. With an eye-watering top speed of 212mph (341km/h), this is truly a convertible supercar that defies expectations. Discover the uncompromised performance of the 720S Spider.
Comfort. It’s not a word you usually come across with a supercar. But the 720S Spider is no ordinary supercar. And the interior is testament to this. Only the finest-grade leather is used in the upholstery – which is a cut above when it comes to supercars. The switchgear is delicately crafted, with almost every piece made from machined aluminium. This makes it light. But also highly tactile. Then there’s our signature material… the 720S Spider’s carbon fibre trim is of the finest quality you’ll find in any supercar. Or, for that matter, any car full stop. It all adds up to a comfortable interior that defies expectations… coupled with performance that’s as refined – or as ferocious – as you want.
