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.
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.
From Bugatti to McLaren, supercars are roaring at Geneva
If February was the month for Asia’s largest Auto Expo at New Delhi, then March is all about most prestigious auto show of Europe; Geneva Motor Show. In the capital city of Switzerland the ongoing automotive event is full of exotic cars. A total of 61 cars are debuting at the event, and among them luxury cars, super cars and hyper cars are the most talked about segment. Supercars are undeniably something always grab our attention everywhere, every time.
At the Geneva Motor Show the supercar segment is full of exotic beauties. Some names worthy of mention are Aston Martin DB11, Bugatti Chiron, McLaren 570GT, Koenigsegg Regera, Lamborghini Centenario, Pagani Huayra BC and many more.
Here we choose 6 supercars unveiled/unveiling at the Geneva Motor Show. Let’s take a look at them.
We knew that this was coming, the Sports Series and the most affordable car from Mclaren. Finally they revealed the car at the 2015, New York Auto Show and christened it as the 570S. Just like all of you we too are equally excited about this new Coupe which gets some of its genes from the P1 and the 670S. In this video Mr. Chris Goodwin who is Chief Test Driver for Mclaren explains all the details about the newest addition to the British auto manufacturer’s stable.
The Mclaren 570S as explained by Mr. Goodwin is a driver’s car which focuses on performance. It’s a true sportscar in every sense and to make this car even special Mclaren has used a carbon fibre chassis which or in other words also called a carbon monocoque structure which helps in reducing the overall weight. As a result of that reduced overall weight the Coupe is extremely agile and also fuel efficient at the same time. When we talked about fuel efficiency we should definitely talk about its heart so the new 570S Coupe is powered by a 3.8 Litre Turbo charged engine which has been revised heavily, this unit is capable of producing about 570 Ps of peak power and an impressive 600 Nm of torque. So what you can actually do with all that power? Mclaren 570S Coupe can sprint from 0-100km/h mark in 3.2 seconds while it can touch top speed of 324 km/h mark.
Mclaren unveiled their newest offering in the market called the 570S at the2015, New York Auto Show recently. This also happens to be their cheapest offering and is meant to take on the Porsche’s 911 Turbo. The 570S is the first car from Mclaren’s Sports Series which will later be joined by atleast 4 to 5 other models; the Sports series joins the Super Series and the Ultimate Series from the same auto manufacturer which also consists of some other interesting cars as well. The specialty of the Sports Series is that it introduces Mclaren’s new race-derived technologies and design elements to the new breed of customer.
The 570S joins the mid-engined rear wheel drive coupe league of cars and it too is actually built around the carbon fibre structure which means the 570S Coupe is extremely lightweight and which helps it in class leading power to weight ratio of 434 Ps per tonne. Talking about power let me inform you that this mid engine Coupe is extremely powerful and uses a M838TE twin turbo V8 engine which produces an impressive amount of power and torque, the performance figures are equally interesting though. The 570S Coupe is able to sprint from 0-100 km/h mark in just 3.2 seconds while it also the ability to touch a top speeds of 324 Km/h mark which is simply amazing.
Although this Coupe is cheaper than the other Mclaren road legal cars but it shares its DNA with the 650S and the mighty P1 and just because this car is cheap that actually does not mean it will also leave the fun part behind it. The initial figures and information available with us surely makes this car equally interesting like the other Cars available from the British auto manufacturer who has been in this business scene for 52 years now.

Here is some good news just before the start of the 2015 New York Auto Show, the British Supercar manufacturer Mclaren who still has not set foot on the Indian market yet is planning to launch their newest supercar at the Auto Show.
But here is the best part Bloomberg already has some fresh new images of the latest supercar which will join the big boy’s league soon. We have to admit that this new car which is christened the 570S looks mind-blowing! The 570S will also be the manufacturers cheapest offering for the market and expected price range will start from an estimated $180,000. Just like some other Mclaren offerings the 570S is also a mid engine rear wheel drive Coupe which is powered by a powerful V8 unit and this unit is expected to produce about 562hp of peak power which will help the car to sprint from 0-100 km/h mark in just 3.2 seconds unbelievably! This is even quicker than the Porsche 911 S.
The Mclaren 570S will have to face challenges from the recently introduced next generation Audi R8 and as already mentioned above the Porsche 911 Turbo. Styling wise the new offering from the 52 year old auto manufacturer is filled with curves, though what is worth mentioning is the fact that it has been built entirely on carbon fiber chassis and weighs only about 1270.06 Kilograms.
According to some official sources this also will be one practical supercar which you can be used daily. It has an impressive interior space and is extremely comfortable as well. The officials also predicted that this new product will help add some impressive numbers in their sales chart.
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. The 675 LT with all the characteristics found its place in the McLaren Super Series; this extreme road legal coupe has the ability to reach the 200 km/h mark from standstill in just 7.9 seconds while it can kiss the 330 km/h mark with ease.

Mclaren 675 LT was unveiled at the 85th International Geneva Motor show and according to the reports it is the purest series production supercar till date. In this video you can watch Chris Goodwin who happens to be the Chief test driver of Mclaren Automotive explains all the features of the 675 LT in detail.
In this video Chris Goodwin recalls his racing days and his ride the F1 GTR LongTail which was one of the first Mclaren cars that he ever drove back in the year 1997, he raced that car and also won the race at Silverstone. 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. The 675 LT has been fitted with 50 percent larger airbrakes, 40 percent more downforce which is created with the air spoiler and front splitter. Mclaren also claims that almost 33 percent of the components used in the car are all new and they were able to shed 100 kilos further of the dry weight. 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.
Mclaren will be unveiling a completely new car at the upcoming Geneva Motor show this March and we all are excited about it afterall it is coming out from the stable of one of the most established and well known Auto manufacturers of the World Mclaren. The upcoming car will be called the 675 LT and it will compete directly with the already popular Ferrari 458 Speciale.
Until now Mclaren has not yet revealed any technical details of the car. The upcoming car is expected to be more powerful and wild variant of the already popular 650 S. Now the standard car is powered by a 3.8 Litre V8 unit which produces about 641 Bhp of peak power while expect the 675 LT to produce even more power than the standard variant. The 675 LT surely will be an attention grabber just like any other Mclaren cars and will also feature ultra lightweight aluminium exhaust pipes. Mclaren will also use many lightweight materials in its construction to reduce the overall weight while it will also shed some extra weight from its interiors by removing all the so called comfort features which are usually available inside the cabin of the standard car.
This soon to be unveiled track focused 675 LT will be in equal league with the well known Ferrari FXXK and the P1 GTR. Until then we all have to wait till March to finally be able to see the car in flesh and before our very own eyes.
Watch the videos to get an idea of the upcoming car from Mclaren.
Mclaren 650S is the latest entrant in the supercar market and it made a grand debut at the Geneva motor show. The 650S as many of you ‘googled’ it couple of times already is positioned just between the MP4-12C and the P1.
It shares the same 3.8 litre, V8 engine which also does duty on the MP4-12C but here it generates 650Ps of maximum power which is obviously more than the 12C(600Ps). Now here are some more interesting data it does 0-100 km/h mark in just 3 seconds and the 200 km/h mark in 8.4 seconds. Still want more? We promise you will love this car even more after hearing this it weighs only 1330 Kilograms and has a top speed of over 330 km.
This car looks different than the original MP4-12C but shares lot of its components and even styling quos from both the 12C and the P1. The change in the design has led to more downforce at high speeds which will further enhance its good handling. Mclaren is known to build some of the more advanced and sophisticated piece of machinery, there supercars are almost perfect from every sense they have a great handling, looks absolutely stunning and is fun to drive. Unlike other supercars you get a very sophisticated and comfortable cabin with quite a few numbers of interesting equipments which includes a satellite radio and navigation. It is also one of the safest car in the world and has carbon-ceramic disc brakes fitted both at its front and rear which are capable of bringing the supercar to halt quite efficiently.
