Don’t blame us if this ends up consuming several hours of your day.
While we’re still waiting for Koenigsegg to release an online configurator that lets us spec our dream Regera supercar which we have no hope of ever affording, McLaren has allowed us to live out the fantasy of buying a 720S following its public debut at Geneva, with the launch of an online configurator. Accessible on a new McLaren microsite, the configurator gives us an insight into the extent of personalization options available for its privileged customers. Don’t blame us if this ends up consuming several hours of your day.
Three trim levels are available for the 720S ranging from standard, Performance and Luxury, which you can explore in detail using the configurator. Opt for the luxury model, and you’ll get silver exterior window surrounds, heated and memory sport seats, as well as interior and engine bay ambient lighting. The Performance model, on the other hand, adds additional carbon-fiber components to the exterior and interior to make the new Super Series ultra-lightweight. From here, you can choose from a wide range of interior colors, 34 exterior paint colors, as well as option packs and individual options.
Alternatively, you can ask McLaren Special Operations to build you a beautiful bespoke car like the 720S Velocity, which made an impression at Geneva with its striking Nerello Red carbon fiber bodywork at the front blended with Volcano Red at the back and sides to stunning effect. It’s also worth visiting the website to gain a further insight into the Monocage II carbon fiber structure, Proactive Chassis Control II active chassis system and active aerodynamics of the new McLaren 720S. It also provides a closer look at its 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 engine which produces 720 horsepower.
If you needed reminding, the McLaren 720S will accelerate from 0-62 mph in only 2.8 seconds, while a quarter-mile run takes 10.3 seconds. Its stopping power is just as earth shattering – the 720S will brake to a stop from 125 mph in just 4.6 seconds. It seems that some lucky customers are already enjoying the McLaren 720S, as one was recently spotted out in the wild in the US.
