McLaren Automotive has begun a new era as it anticipates full scale production of the new 720S supercar. The first unit, the ‘Job#1’ car is finished in Glacier White, and is all set to leave the McLaren Production Centre in Woking, Surrey, England. The vehicle was hand-assembled by McLaren’s team of craftspeople.
This move marks a new chapter in the production history of McLaren as the second generation of the Super Series, which has been codenamed ‘P14’ replaces the first generation, ‘P11’ model family that comprised the original McLaren 12C and subsequent models including the McLaren 650S and 675LT.
Mike Flewitt, Chief Executive Officer, McLaren Automotive, commenting about the completion of the Job #1 car said that it marked a historic moment for McLaren Automotive, as this was the first time that the company had replaced a model family with an all-new generation. The McLaren 720S has drawn considerable interest from customers since it was unveiled in March at the Geneva International Motor Show. So, the company is bidding adieu to the first-generation Super Series with full confidence that its successor will take the supercar segment to new heights.
The new 720S is the first of 15 new McLaren models that the company has confirmed it will be launching by the end of 2022 under the company’s Track22 business plan.
The new 720S, true to the history of the McLaren brand effectively combines outstanding performance, crafted luxury and unmatched driver involvement. It is lighter, faster and even more dynamically capable its predecessor, the McLaren 650S. The 720 S is powered by a 4.0-litre V8 twin-turbocharged engine that has an output of 720 hp and can go from 0-60mph in just 2.8 seconds and from 0-124mph (200km/h) in only 7.8 seconds. The model’s top speed is 212 mph (341km/h).
