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.
The new sports coupe looks absolute stunner
McLaren has unveiled the sports coupe 570GT at the Geneva Motor Show, which looks an absolutely stunning car. Based on the 570S this Sports series car is an extremely fast coupe which can also act like a daily drive car apart from the track.
Drawing power from a 3.8 litre twin turbo V8 engine mated to a seven speed dual clutch SSG transmission this car produces 562 hp peak power and 600 Nm peak torque. McLaren 570 GT can reach 0-100 kmph in just 3.4 seconds, with a top speed of 204 kmph. This car will directly compete against Porsche 911 Turbo and Ferrari California T.
Take a look at the car in this video.
Auto Expos are something which brings us a chance to watch all our fantasies under one roof. No wonder, every single petrolheads of our country is now keen to watch the cars and motorcycles which will be showcased, launched at the 2016 New Delhi Auto Expo. Almost every automaker that will be present at the Auto Expo will showcase various interesting models, some are facelifts, some completely new generation models, and some will be completely new to Indian market, but the real attraction will surely go to those cool concept cars. In every Auto Expo we get to see some spectacular concept models, which pave the way for the future vehicles. But how about the ones which look like, taken from the video games?
Hyundai will showcase the stunning looking N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo Concept. This vehicle is unlikely to be a reality production model, but the design and technologies used to make this car will surely make their way to the future Hyundai models.
Formula One car is something which every motorsports lover are very interested about. Honda will showcase McLaren Honda MP4-30 Formula One car at the upcoming New Delhi Auto Expo. The McLaren Formula One car gets power from Honda engine.
So, the concept car from Hyundai and the Formula One car at the Honda pavilion at Auto Expo will be two cars which will garner much attraction from the visitors.
Let’s check a bit about these two cars.
The McLaren 675 LT is a track focussed supercar from the British manufacturer. The car, based on the McLaren 650 S, is available only as a coupe and only 500 will be ever produced.
The 675 LT features a carbon fibre bodywork for weight reduction. The supercar weighs a 100 kgs less than the standard 650S. It is powered by a re-engineered version of the company’s M838TL V8 engine that’s twin-turbocharged. It now produces 666 HP and 700 Nm, which is 25 HP and 22 Nm more than the 650 S. It is mated to a 7-speed dual clutch gearbox that now responds twice as fast. The car also features upgraded suspension, carbon ceramic brakes and Pirelli P-Zero tyres.
Chris Harris, a professional driver and reviewer, has got his hands on one such example of the car. Watch as he unleashes the true potential of the track focussed car which competes against the Ferrari 458 Speciale.
When it comes to fast cars you definitely are aware of the two names Lamborghini and Mclaren that also stays on top of the preference lists of auto enthusiast or car lovers. In this video you can watch the Huracan and the 650 S battle it out on a wet track.
Now when it comes to these cars both Lamborghini and Mclaren added the Huracan and the 650S to their stable recently and both these sportscars has got plenty of time to prove how good they are on track as well as on road. While the Lamborghini Huracan is powered by a 5.2 Litre V10 unit which produces about 602 Bhp of peak power and 560 Nm of torque, Mclaren 650S relies on a much smaller 3.8 Litre twin turbo V8 unit which produces about 650 Ps of peak power and 678 NM of torque. Now both these cars are almost at par when it comes to performance while the Huracan is able to accelerate from 0-100 km/h mark in just 3.2 seconds while the 650 S does the same in just 3.0 seconds flat. The Huracan can reach a top speed of 325 km/h mark while the British manufacturer’s car can reach 329 km/h mark which is absolutely amazing.
As you can watch in this video that both these cars are giving each other some tough competition and it is quite hard to determine which of these sports car has an edge over the other or which is actually the clear winner but surely the Huracan has better traction because it comes with a 4 wheel drive while the 650S is only a rear wheel driven coupe.
If you love some hot sportscar in action and their screaming exhaust note then you will definitely love watching this video also does tell us which one of these two cars is your favorite.
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.
This definitely got to be one of the most interesting videos that we shared with you, Autocar U.K staff Andrew Frankel was lucky enough to get to drive one of the most advanced GTR car in the World the Mclaren P1 GTR which is based on their road legal P1.
In this video you can watch Chris Goodwin who happens to be the chief Test driver for Mclaren explains every single detail to Andrew before the door gets shut and he has to control the 986 Bhp beast all by himself on track. The Mclaren P1 GTR pushes things to a whole new limit, this car will only be made available to the Mclaren P1 owners and the production of this track focused car will only begin when Mclaren completes the production process of the 375th standard P1 car.
This P1 GTR surely achieved some numbers and the figures looks something like this, the P1 GTR can sprint from 0-100 km/h mark in just 2.8 seconds, it has an electronically limited top speed of about 350 km/h mark, it can reach the 300 km/h mark from standstill in just 16.5 seconds. Surely this figure sounds interesting and all that is possible because of the car’s lightweight, this car weighs only about 1, 440 Kilograms which is amazing.
Watch the video to get some more details of the cockpit and also how it performs on track.
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.
You obviously will know this person from his comedy films and TV shows, he is none other than the great British actor Rowan Atkinson who is also known as Mr. Bean across the globe but do you know that he is not only a great comedian who is usually seen driving a small Green Mini on screen but also is a real life car enthusiast, not in a sense because he has money so he rides expensive cars but he also keep thorough and detailed knowledge about them.
Beside owning other exclusive and one of kind cars his most prized possession was a Mclaren F1 which he brought back in the year 1997. We all knew about the F1 because of the two incidents involving the car the first one occurred back in the year 1999 when Mr. Atkinson hit a Rover Metro while the second major crash occurred back in 2011 when Mr. Atkinson hit a tree. The complete car was then rebuilt by Mclaren once again.
Now according to the reports Mr. Atkinson is putting up his beloved Mclaren F1 for sale and is asking a total of 8 Million Pounds for the car, the car was originally priced at 5.4 Million Pounds during the time of purchase. The Mclaren F1 is powered by a 6.1 Litre V12 unit which produces about 621 Hp of peak power 650 Nm of peak torque, The F1 can reach a top speed of 388 km/h mark and can accelerate from 0-100 km/h mark in just 3.2 seconds. The car is extremely lightweight and does not have any sort of driving aid which actually means driving the Mclaren F1 will be like trying to tame a raging horse who wants to through you out of its back everytime you ride it.
