McLaren 750S is 30 percent modified from the 720S

April 26, 2023

McLaren 750S

Designed and developed after meticulous analysis of the renowned McLaren 720S, the new McLaren 750S combines advances in weight reduction, powertrain performance, aerodynamics and dynamic qualities. Thus, McLaren aims to take the driving experience to the next level. About 30 percent of the 750S’s components are new or modified to achieve these improvements. So about 70 percent are still McLaren 720S.

Performance V8 engine

The supercar features a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine producing 750 hp and as much as 800 Nm of torque, mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission with revised ratios. The 750S’s 0-100 time comes out to 2.8 seconds and the 0-200 km/h sprint is 7.2 seconds (Spider 7.3 seconds).

Weight reduction

Carbon fiber self-supporting construction forms the basis of the 750S. Compared to the 720S, the 750S is about 30 kilograms lighter. The car has a dry weight of 1,277 kilograms. That weight reduction results in a horsepower-to-weight ratio of 587 horsepower per 1,000 kilograms.

Improved interior

Other features of the McLaren 750S include racing seats with carbon-fiber upholstery and the lightest wheels ever fitted as standard on a mass-produced McLaren. Thanks to clever modifications to the bodywork, McLaren also takes the car’s aerodynamic qualities to the next level. The new interior is even more driver-oriented and also features new, simpler controls. Apple CarPlay is standard.

The McLaren 750S Coupe and 750S Spider are available for immediate order through McLaren dealers.
