Watch The Mclaren 720S In Action That Took The Center Stage At 2017 Geneva Motor Show: Video

A sophisticated yet powereful car which can give Ferrari and Lamborghini some serious competition

Mclaren inevitably attracted a lot of crowd at the 2017 Geneva Motor show when they unveiled the second generation Super Series. The 720S which was unveiled at the show will replace the 650S and will sit below the P1. The car was codenamed P14 and is not only a price of art but also is practical and performance oriented at the same time. I mean look at the front or the rear profile of the 720S, this thing looks serene from every possible angle, but this also is Mclaren’s stunning new interpretation of design language and their dedication towards aerodynamic principles.

This car has a whole new design and everything looks nothing exactly like what we are used to seeing in a Mclaren. The headlight design towards the front is all new one and will perhaps slightly remind you of the Mclaren logo, the headlamp unit, in particular, is an adaptive LED light unit which gets carbon fibre surround. The lower portion of the headlamp unit has a duct for cooling. The lower front profile has an air duct which channels all the cool air from the lower portion of the car towards the side profile. Walk towards the side profile and these big air intakes surely looks purposeful there is another air cooling duct positioned towards the lower portion of the car. The first thing which will draw your attention towards the rear profile of the car Is the new Aerowing which helps in braking as well as creating downforce in normal driving conditions. The slash cut shaped exhaust system looks almost identical to the 675 LT exhaust, but this one is lighter. The new car uses Carbon fibre chassis based on Monocage II and is 40 kilograms lighter than its predecessor. The Mclaren 720S weighs 1,283kg.

A Short Ride In The Mclaren 675 LT Spider: Video

A Short Ride In The Mclaren 675 LT Spider: Video

The spider variant of the 675 LT is equally exciting

Mclraen first showcased the 675 LT at the 85th International Geneva Motor Show for the first time and it was one of the crowd’s hot favorite. Mclaren will be building only 500 units of these one of a kind sportscar and the special focus has been given to make it lightweight.

In this video you can watch the twin brother of the Mclaren 675 LT in its spider body form being driven on the track by Bruno Senna. According to him the lightweight nature of the car definitely helps it to be absolutely fluid on the race track. You can watch as the car is thrown to its limit in the race track. Just like the Coupe variant the 675 LT spider is also powered by the M838TL engine, but this particular engine’s components has been changed and reworked. This engine is now capable of producing about 675 Ps of peak power and 700 NM of torque. All that power is transmitted to the rear wheel via the help of 7 speed SSG transmission. With the heldp of reduced weight the car can sprint from 0-100km/h mark in just 2.9 seconds, the car can also hit a top speed of 329 km/h mark.

Bruno Senna who is driving this car, explains that there is hardly any difference between the Coupe and spider variant and he has driven both the cars. He also explains the best thing about the 675 LT is that that it can be driven in a comfortable way and can also be pushed to its limits and the 675 LT Spider is comfortable in both the modes.

McLaren 570GT makes world debut at 2016 Geneva Motor Show

McLaren 570GT makes world debut at 2016 Geneva Motor Show

Is touted as the most practical model ever made by McLaren

Mclaren Automotive has debuted the 570GT its newest addition to the Sports Series in Geneva. The supercar is essentially a 570S with more emphasis paid to everyday usability and comfort over long distances. The car is priced in the UK from £154,000 (INR 1,45,98,105) onwards.

At first glance the 570GT does not seem to differ much from its sibling the 570S, and that is probably due to the fact that it has the same front end. The similarities begin to fade away as the view progresses from the sides to the rear. The standard fixed panoramic sunroof and the side-opening rear hatch being the highlights. The leather-lined Touring Deck behind the seats can hold an additional 220 litres of luggage. This space can be accessed through the rear glass hatch and when combined with the 150 litres of luggage space upfront gives a total storage capacity of 370 litres. The posterior also comes with an extended fixed spoiler, with McLaren claiming that it gives the same aerodynamic performance as that generated by the flying buttresses of the 570S.

McLaren says that the 570GT has been equipped with the “latest technologies and highest quality materials”. They have equipped the supercar with extended leather upholstery, electrically adjustable heated seats with memory function, electric steering column, soft-close doors, subdued exhaust system and, front and rear parking sensors as standard fitment. Noise damping and absorbing materials have also been employed extensively to improve the refinements level inside the cabin. An 8-speaker McLaren Audio Plus system is fitted as standard but for those who want more, there is an optional Bowers & Wilkins 12-speaker audio system.

2015 McLaren Honda MP4-30

McLaren is undoubtedly the next big name after Ferrari in the Formula-1 racing circuits. The British company started making race cars way before they started making road cars. After a disappointing 2014 and 2014 seasons McLaren brought an all new car in form of McLaren Honda MP4-30; equipped with a more improved chassis and powered by Honda RA615H hybrid powertrain.

This car marks a significant partnership between the McLaren and Honda. We all know, in between 1988 and 1991 McLaren powered by a Honda engine won four world championships consistently. This was the time when McLaren had the iconic driver in their team; Ayrton Senna, arguably the best Formula-1 driver of all time in history.

In 1992 the partnership broke and McLaren took the help from Ford and Peugeot to power their cars. After two seasons with them, McLaren turned to Mercedes, and the British-German partnership lasted for two decades. In 2015 after making partnership again with Honda McLaren hoped to win another world championship after 16 years, although that didn’t happen. However, the McLaren Honda MP4-30 signifies a few bit things. This is their first model after reconciliation and it gets power from Honda’s first Formula-1 engine since 2005. This single seater beast with refined aerodynamics, new nose box and a completely new Honda hybrid powertrain will make it to the floors of upcoming 2016 Indian Auto Expo. Well, now we have plenty of reasons to be cheered up. Yes, Honda will showcase the Formula-1 car at their stall and that will definitely become the showstopper.

Mclaren the creator of the hypercar P1 and many other supercars in the past showcased the 675 LT at the 85th International Geneva Motor Show. Based on the 650S Coupe the 675 LT is definitely been brought back to life to relieve Mclaren’s ‘Longtail’ heritage glory days.

Although Mclaren will only be building 500 units of this track focused car which has lost some serious amount of weight and as a result of that the 675LT also happens to be the lightest car in its class. Injected with more power and optimized aerodynamics to perform better on the track. The 675 LT now can sprint from 0-100 km/h mark in just 2.9 seconds which is actually a second quicker than the standard car and all that was possible because the 675LT is actually 100 Kilograms lighter than the standard 650S.

This car is meant to perform and that is also the reason why the M838TL engine which also performs its duty on the 650S Coupe and Spider has been modified to extract more power, but here is the real deal although this car is extreme still it is very much a road legal car which will be offered in the Coupe only form.

In the meantime the P1 Hypercar came and impressed the people with its sheer power and that new and exclusive styling. Let’s just say that the 650S Spider has just evolved out of the above mentioned cars but still has its own unique character.

Unveiled at the 84th International Geneva Motor Show the 650S Spider according to Mclaren does not compromise on its performance or handling a bit still after being an open top convertible. Mechanically this car is similar to the 650S Coupe and is powered by the same McLaren M838T twin turbo V8 engine. We knew the MP4 12 C was no doubt a great car be it its handling, power figures or ride quality and believe it or not the new 650S Spider too shares the same Carbon fibre Composite chassis which was used by the 12C.

This open top convertible is fast and can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 3.0 seconds flat while it has a claimed top speed of about 329 Km/h. For stopping weather you like it or not Mclraen has fitted the car with carbon fiber ceramic disc brakes while it also comes with sticky Pirelli tyres for maximum grip.

The car was heavily revised to suit the needs which even included the change in shape by developing a long tail towards the rear which reflected on the aerodynamic advantage that they gained during the race which included downforce and cooling. The car was modified further which even included revised suspension, new brakes and installed ABS, new tyres etc.

Spool forward to the present day and the new 675 LT is developed on the same platform as the 650S which is already the fastest car in its class and then they have tweaked the standard car to make it more track focused and responsive.

Changes were even made to the engine components and this car now produces about 675 Ps of peak power which is obviously more than the standard car.

This Mclaren 675LT is definitely different than the standard 650S and one can realize that once they switch the ignition on. Watch and enjoy the video and learn more about the 675 LT in detail.

Video: Mclaren P1 Vs Porsche 918

Mclaren P1 and a Porsche 918………

What are the next words that are coming in your mind? Is It Race? If it’s ‘race’ then today is your lucky day because believe it or not you get to see a P1 locking horns with the 918 Spyder. Now as you all know both of these hypercars are actually powered by a hybrid engine which means that you have a powerful petrol engine as well as an electric motor which actually results in an amazing power output. Both these cars are meant for race track and are extremely fast at the same time and in this video you can actually find out how fast they actually are on a real race track.

On paper the Mclaren P1 produces about 903 hp of peak power and about 1500 Nm of torque which is absolutely brilliant while on the other hand the Porsche 918 generates about 887 hp of peak power and 1275 Nm of torque which is comparatively less than the P1. Offcourse! The Porsche 918 is a heavier car than the Mclaren p1 and thus is also slower……No! Actually not because the Mclaren P1 and Porsche 918 both can accelerate from 0-100 km/h mark on just 2.8 seconds while they both actually can reach speeds of above 335 km/h mark.

Folks at Evo try to set a fastest lap time on both these cars and try to find out who comes out as the clear winner.
