McLaren's newest supercar has been shown off early.
McLaren has been teasing its brand new supercar rumored to be called the 720S. Up until now, we have only seen a few spyshots and a close up of the car's taillight. We knew that potential customers would have a chance to see the car in person before it was officially revealed in Geneva, and it seems like someone at the event was able to get a shot of the new car in all its glory. The car is finished in the now signature McLaren orange scheme, and we can't get enough of it. The car is rumored to have a larger displacement engine that produces over 700 horsepower.
Even though the 650S didn't really seem that old to us, this new car really proves that McLaren can innovate at an unbelievable pace. The 720S will also feature McLaren's new Monocage II, which is a new, lightweight carbon fiber central structure. McLaren has yet to reveal anything official about the car, so we will have to wait to find out anything about pricing, availability, performance, or even the name. McLaren has claimed that its new car is twice as aerodynamically efficient as the 650S, and now we can see that it wasn't joking when it made those claims. This new car has massive front air intakes and heavy creases along the body work. This should help give the car tremendous downforce.
For now, we know that dynamically, the car will be a quantum leap forward over its predecessor, the 650S. We will continue with updates as we get more information about McLaren's latest supercar but for now we only have one leaked picture, (posted with permission from McLaren).
