Completely new model, which will replace the McLaren 650S, was presented by a British company at an auto show in Geneva.
The McLaren 720S, like its predecessor, received a monocoque of carbon fiber, with the engine placed behind the back. It uses a twin-turbo V8, but its volume has been increased from 3.8 to 4.0 liters. As a result, the power increased to 710 horsepower, and the maximum torque was 568 lb-ft. This is enough to make the manufacturers of the new Lamborghini Huracan Performante and Ferrari 488 GTB worry. Another important change was the decrease in mass, which makes it possible to use the engine resources more efficiently. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h now takes 2.9 seconds, and the maximum speed is 341 km / h.
In addition, the supercar boasts a host of other changes, including improved aerodynamics, control systems, safety and assistance to the driver.
Sales of new items start at the end of spring. The price in the UK will be from 209 thousand pounds sterling.
