Borro has been taking a look at the luxury car market and picking out cars that we believe are ones to watch. New or classic, sports or leisure, you’ll be interested to see who makes cut. This time we explore the 2018 McLaren 720S.
History of McLaren
For those less familiar with the brand, McLaren is a British car company that was founded in 1963 by Bruce McLaren. The company focuses on 3 main range names: Sports cars, Super cars and Ultimate Series cars.
Geneva Motor Show Debut
At the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, McLaren unveiled its newest car in the Super Series – the 720S. The car is expected to go on sale in May and would cost the buyer around £230,500.
Built for Speed
Striving for speed, the McLaren 720S reaches 60mph in less than 3 seconds and reaches speeds of over 200mph. The car is powered by a 4-litre twin turbo engine with 710 horsepower.
This McLaren 720S is extremely lean and lightweight. There are special air ducts that allows the engine to cool down 15% more effectively than its predecessor the 650S.
This model is around 40 pounds lighter than the 650S, even though it’s got more space. It also includes an 8 inch touch screen and a leather cabin shod. It has four independent dampers that are controlled via a computer system that gathers data from the suspension and sensors around the car that react in under two milliseconds. Smart and pretty.
So there we have it – our car of the month – what do you think? Will this McLaren 720S live up to its “Raise your limits” tagline, or do you have a better sports car in mind? Let us know by tweeting us at @borrobuzz
