McLaren presented officially the 720S, which is built on a new carbon frame, called Monocage II, and has a weight of just 1,283 kg. It is equipped with a 4.0-liter V8 bi turbo engine, producing 720 hp at 7,500 rpm and 770 Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm.
Its engine is combined with a 7-speed dual clutch transmission that sends power to the rear wheels and enables the car to do the 0-100 km/h in 2.9 seconds, the 0-200 km/h in 7.8 seconds and to complete the quarter-mile in 10.3 seconds, with its top speed being 341 km/h.
The car has three driving modes: Comfort, Sport and Track, that control almost all its settings. The 720S has also the Variable Drift Control system, that allows it to drift easier.
McLaren has already started accepting orders for the 720S, with the deliveries of the first cars expected in May. Besides the standard version, McLaren will release also the Performance and Luxury versions. In the UK, the price of the McLaren 720S will start from £208,600.
