The lightest and most powerful series-production McLaren ever built, the new 750S resents the benchmark for power-to-weight ratio and offers astonishing levels of performance. It’s able to sprint to 100km/h in just 2.8 seconds.
Offering rear-wheel drive and powered by a 551kW twin-turbo V8, the 750S delivers 800Nm of torque, with the drivetrain mated to a 7-speed transmission with revised ratios to maximise acceleration.
With a carbon fibre monocoque construction, it tips the scales at just 1,277kg (dry weight), and sports similarly constructed racing seats and the lightest wheels ever fitted to a McLaren production car.
Also available as a Spider (convertible), the 750S features a new interior, with a driver-centric column-mounted instrument display flanked by rocker switches that control active dynamic settings.
The upside of that is suspension and powertrain modes can changed with your hands on the steering wheel. Apple CarPlay is standard, as are USB-C and USB-A for fast charging of devices.
TechLux and Performance interior themes offer full Nappa leather, or a combination of it and Alcantara, while there’s the option to add a new Bowers & Wilkins premium audio system as well.
It features an exclusive control management system that allows the driver to store a favourite combination of aero, handling, powertrain and transmission settings, and return to them with the push of a button.
A centre-exit exhaust inspired by the McLaren P1 delivers a new, distinctive crescendo of noise, while the latest generation of the car maker’s acclaimed linked-hydraulic suspension is also included.
Bespoke accumulator tuning, new lightweight springs and dampers and revised geometry, deliver even greater agility, feel and feedback. A new track brake upgrade is available as an optional extra.
A revised vehicle-lift system operated by a single button raises the front of car in just four seconds – less than half the time of its predecessor and faster than any other McLaren. The exterior design is rounded out by an extended front splitter.
Narrower eye-socket intakes, new rear wheel arch vents, a lengthened carbon fibre active rear wing and new front and rear bumpers also feature.
The McLaren 750S coupe is priced at $585,800 plus on-road costs, while the McLaren 750S Spider is priced at $654,600 plus on-roads, here in Australia. It’s available to order now. If you’re keen on one and need finance, talk to CreditOne.
