McLaren 720S to be unveiled at Swiss Motor Show
The latest in McLaren’s line of super cars is set to be debuted at the Geneva Motor Show later this year. The 720S, nicknamed the P14, will be the replacement to McLaren’s current 650S, boasting a higher top speed and a lighter carbon fibre frame, whilst using a 4.0 twin-turbo V8 engine as opposed to the 3.8 litre unit.
The news caps off the end of a hugely successful spell for the McLaren Super Series, which was designed into a number of specs including the 650S and 675LT. McLaren have teased car enthusiasts with an image of the new 720S with the carbon fibre monocoque that is a signature in the Super Series model.
The 720S will be the first in a line of new models in McLaren’s business plan, with an investment of £1-billion to be put into the creation of 15 new models by 2022. The 720S is set to go on sale in 2018, but will be previewed to potential buyers in New York and Las Angeles later this year.
The 720S is set for a design overhaul, starting from scratch rather than building on the current Super Series model. The new model will have a more angular frame, the side panels are set to sport a simpler look, whilst the headlights on the 720S will be on the corners rather than the fenders.
Keep an eye out for McLaren’s 720S at the Geneva Motor Show on March 9th.
