The new 2018 McLaren 720S is a lighter, faster, and even more dynamically capable predecessor of the McLaren 650S. With its exceptional levels of cabin space and sophistication, this new McLaren has a breadth and depth of abilities that satisfies the drivers in a way that no rivals can.

One of the car's highlights is the absence of radiator intakes on its side.This function is brought out by a unique aerodynamic in a double-skin form of the dihedral doors. It channels the air to the high-temperature radiators that cool down the mid-mounted engine.

This 2018 McLaren 720S is powered by a new 4.0-litre engine that can generate over 720PS and a torque of 770Nm. This under the hood system clearly delivers truly astonishing levels of performance. It only takes 3 seconds from the car accelerates 100km/h (62mph) and passed the 200km/h (124mph) mark in a span of 5 seconds.

For the maximum speed, this car has the range of 341km/h (212mph). As to its braking, it is also impressive. The new McLaren also delivers 10.7 litres/100km in the combined fuel economy cycle and CO2 emissions of 249g/km in the NEDC (New European Driving Cycle).

The owners of this new McLaren model will benefit from the company's focus on a great driving experience ever from a McLaren Super Series models. This car is an incredibly impressive benchmark calling on large reserves of balance, grip, and performance for the drivers to enjoy the car's full potential.

Meanwhile, a double aerodynamic efficiency of the 650S and the new generation of McLaren's Proactive Chassis Control with a new suspension and the established excellence of McLaren's power-assisted and electro-hydraulic steering deliver a driving experience of a sheer breadth of dynamic capability.

Along with a full complement of advanced convenience technologies, these provide the new 2018 McLaren 720S an incredible degree of usability. In addition, it also validates its claim to be the most complete supercar on sale today.
