In December last year, McLaren stopped production of the 720S model. It was to be replaced by the 750S and now the covers are off. And underneath it was – a 720S with more power and less weight. However, 30 percent of the components in the car are said to be new, but it looks very much like its predecessor.
The 750S is the lightest and most powerful yet from McLaren (the P1 has more total power but it’s also a hybrid), and it weighs 1277 kilos dry, which is a reduction of 30 kilos. The curb weight is stated as 1464 kilos. The engine is the well-proven 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8. It has gained an additional 30 horsepower, now producing a total of 750 horsepower and 800 Newton meters of torque. The power increase comes from higher boost pressure and lightweight pistons borrowed from the McLaren 765LT. 0-100 km/h is claimed to take 2.8 seconds and top speed is listed at 332 km/h.
The interior has a new instrument cluster and Apple CarPlay has made its way in. Carbon fiber shell seats are optional. Carbon-ceramic brakes are standard.
The car is also offered as a convertible, or Spider as they call it. This weighs 49 kilos more and also costs a bit extra. The coupe is expected to start at $324,000, while the Spider goes for $345,000. Both can be ordered now, but delivery dates are currently unknown.
