The new McLaren Super Series, the 2018 McLaren 720S, was unveiled to much fanfare at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year. The car is now gearing up for its market launch which means it is being dispatched to McLaren dealership across the world so that customers can get to know it better.
One of the first places they sent the new McLaren 720S was the Newport Beach showroom which holds the record for shifting the greatest numbers of McLarens. They in turn took the British supercar to its second American public appearance, after Amelia Island Concourse, at Cars and Coffee San Celemente:
Just to recap, McLaren 720S come with a twin-turbocharged V8 4.0 liter engine with 720PS and 770Nm of torque. Performance-wise, standstill to 100km/h (62mph) takes less than 3 seconds and just 5 seconds later the car has passed the 200km/h (124mph) mark on its way to a maximum speed of 341km/h (212mph). Braking is equally impressive, the new 720S coming to a halt from 200km/h (124mph) in just 4.6 seconds, covering 117m. Additionally, the extreme efficiency of the engine also goes beyond mere velocity: the new McLaren 720S delivers 10.7 litres/km combined fuel economy and CO2 emissions of just 249g/km in the New European Driving Cycle.
The new Super Series is also a lot more fun to drive hard than its predecessor thanks to cleverer electronics and a nicer exhaust sound. Here’s the 720S showing off its drift mode:
