McLaren Super Series is one of the most iconic car series of today. It is the group of 650S models (Spider & Coupé) and the 675LT model. The first 650S was launched in 2014 at the Geneva Motor Show as a Spider and a Coupe version and it had 3.8-liter twin-turbo M838T V8 engine which was a blast to the car industry. It still is. One year later, at the same motor show in Geneva, the 675LT was introduced to public. This was the first modern “longtail” McLaren (it is what the LT badge stands for). The new 675LT was equipped with the M838TL 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine, which was pushing the car little bit slower than the engine in McLaren 650S, although this new version was capable of pushing it faster. So, the acceleration was slightly better in 675LT. Maybe this was because the 675LT was 100 kilograms lighter than the 650S.
McLaren Super Series 720S – an Engine of the New Model
Today, in 2017 we have a new model called McLaren 720S, which is here to replace the old 650S model. McLaren 720S will have a new 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine and will be capable of some crazy SuperSeries speeds, if I may say. Its engine will have two turbochargers, but we do not know the total power it will produce. Not yet. It is announced for the upcoming Geneva Motor Show in March this year. Although the total output power is not known, McLaren says it will go from 0 to 124mph (equal to 200kmph) in only 7.8 seconds. The codename of the new engine is M840T, as McLaren has announced.
What About Other Specs of 720S?
There are few leaked photos on the internet which can be found easily which indicates McLaren has been testing the new babe for a while now. The new 2017 McLaren Super Series 720S is going to have a new Proactive Chassis Control 2 System which will help and assist the driver by changing the suspension damping and keeping it optimised in any driving condition. There will be a new Drift Control which will add a lot to already inherited great stability of the 720S.
There are some information that the engine will have a better cooling system which will be 15 percent more efficient than in a previous 650S model. McLaren Super Series 720S will have, well, of course, the F1-styled doors which will give more space and room for passengers.
All in all, we are waiting for the Geneva Motor Show in March to see everything about McLaren Super Series and its new model 720S.
McLaren Super Series 720S Price and Release Date
The new 720S model is not expected to be more expensive than the previous 650S, but the price is not yet known. The new McLaren Super Series 720S will be on sale by the middle of 2017.
