2018 McLaren 720S

Making its global debut at the Geneva Motor Show, McLaren’s first model in their second generation Super Series, the 720s, is nothing short of a show stopper. It’s officially a lighter, faster and ultimately more capable version than its predecessor -the 650s- and looks to exhilarate the driver even more than previously expected once behind the wheel.

Why, you may ask? Well under the hood of this thing is a new M480T engine functioning as a viable addition to McLaren’s award winning engine series. It’s a 4.0 liter V8 capable of a 710 horsepower output that’s set to get the ride from 0-62mph in under 3 seconds while breaking 124mph in just 5 seconds on its way to a top speed of 212mph. It’s also built upon a carbon fiber chassis with their Proactive Chassis Control that features a new suspension alongside McLaren’s power-assisted and electro-hydraulic steering. Inside is a plush leather interior in conjunction with a folding driver display and an infotainment screen for a complete user-friendly experience as well. The 720s is currently available for order from McLaren dealers for around $253,400 with first deliveries slated for May.
