The new McLaren 750S supercar

Here’s a news release from McLaren Automotive showcasing their new McLaren 750S supercar, which in essence takes over from the 720S. I for one cannot wait to see this car, and hopefully drive it, as the 720S was ridiculously fast, and the 750S is 30KG lighter.

Here are the 750S car headlines (taken from McLaren themselves):

  • New 750S is the lightest and most powerful series-production McLaren, with segment-leading power-to-weight ratio of 587PS-per-tonne (coupe, at lightest dry weight) – a 22PS advantage over its closest competitor.
  • New rear-wheel drive, V8-engined supercar takes outstanding attributes of renowned 720S to new heights.
  • Meticulous analysis of benchmark predecessor sees around 30% of components new or changed, making 750S more powerful, lighter, quicker and even more thrilling and engaging.
  • Carbon fibre monocoque construction is core to low vehicle weight – 750S is lighter than 720S by 30kg (DIN) and at lightest dry weight of just 1,277kg, a remarkable 193 kg less than its closest competitor.
  • Carbon fibre-shelled racing seats and the lightest wheels ever fitted as standard on a series-production McLaren among features that deliver weight-reduction.
  • Carbon fibre upper structure and composite Retractable Hard Top (RHT) mean Spider is only 49kg heavier than coupe.
  • Twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 petrol engine now produces 750PS and 800Nm; 7-speed transmission with revised ratios optimises acceleration.

  • Increased downforce and even better aerodynamic balance than 720S.
  • New interior is even more driver-focused and sets new standards for engagement with displays and controls.

  • New track brake upgrade available, combining ceramic discs and monobloc calipers derived from McLaren Senna system with a new booster and vacuum pump.
