China’s auto industry doesn’t like foreign competition, but McLaren have made record sales in only three years. The 3rd anniversary is also taking place with the launch of the new 720S along with a special edition of the 570GT. Although it won’t be available for order until July, the 720S is creating quite a buzz. A new 4.0 liter V8 and twin turbos deliver 720 metric horsepower and 568 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels. The dihedral doors and other styling cues are taken from the original F1. With a dry weight of 2,829 lbs, it will be incredibly fast on the track and street.
The 720S show car is finished in Saros exterior with black/yellow leather interior. It will share the stage with a Commemorative Edition of the 570GT, of which only three examples are planned. Painted in Pacific Blue, the side hinged rear glass offers an additional 220 liters of storage space on the leather lined package tray. The interior is a mix of black and cream Nappa leather with carbon black seat belts. Not missing any options, all three with have 12 speaker audio by Bowers & Wilkins along with front nose lift and rear view cameras. McLaren Special Operations worked their magic and delivered rocker panels and other exterior trim in carbon fiber.
