A US-Spec McLaren 720S Has Been Spotted In A Parking Lot, Of All Places


Surely it deserves better surroundings. A track comes to mind.

At this very moment, the media and public alike can catch their first glimpse of the McLaren 720S in the flesh at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. Putting it mildly, it’s an absolutely stunning and brilliant piece of work, and no doubt the folks over at Maranello (aka Ferrari) have taken notice. Now a couple of members of the 6Speedonline forum have spotted what’s definitely one of the first of these new McLarens in the US. In a parking lot. Parked next to a big ass SUV, of course.

Like its 650S predecessor as well as the 570S and 570GT, the new 720S will be sold in America, as well as many other global markets. If you want to be a part of the 720 owner’s club, you’ll have to shell out least $260,000, give or take. Heck, the also just revealed bespoke MSO 720S costs over $400 grand. Powered by a new twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 with 710 hp and 568 lb-ft of torque, McLaren claims you’ll rocket from 0 to 62 mph in only 2.8 seconds, while top speed has been clocked at 212 mph. If you need to stop fast for any reason (or just require a good neck stretch), braking to a complete standstill from 124 mph takes just 4.6 seconds.

Thanks to its lightweight carbon fiber chassis and many, many other weight reducing components inside and out, the 720S has a curb weight of 3,121 pounds. Sales are set to begin in May, so the 720S you’re seeing here, in that signature McLaren orange, is only the first of many. Photos courtesy of 6Speedonline/Chris Ellefson and Anthony Castro.
