The McLaren brand represents some of the most exclusive exotic sports cars available on the market. They look stunning, they perform incredibly well, they’re really the total package. In 2017, the company introduced a new model, the 720S, the first of 15 new models the brand intended to launch by 2022. In the years since, it has grown increasingly popular and makes an incredible option in the super sports car market. Every once in a while, we have a used version of this beauty available right here in North Miami Beach FL.
Powered by a 4.0L twin-turbocharged V8 engine, the 720S is capable of generating 720 PS (or 710 horsepower), hence the name, alongside 568 pound-feet of torque. This enables the sports car to get from a complete stop up to 62 miles per hour in just 2.9 seconds, or 124 mph in 7.8 s. It can hit a maximum speed of 212 miles per hour and run a quarter-mile in 10.3 seconds.
Three major variants have been introduced since the initial 720S model joined the McLaren lineup. The first was the 720S Velocity, introduced the day after the regular model. The special edition variant had a Nerello Red and Volcano Red paint job with a carbon fiber hood and accents, Carbon Black Alcantara trim on the interior and lightweight aluminum wheels painted a metallic bronze color.
The next model was the 720S GT3, a non-street-legal track version of the vehicle introduced at the 2018 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. The racecar saw all sorts of improvements over the regular model, with over 90% of the vehicle being changed. Finally, in December of 2018 the 720S Spider was introduced. This open-top convertible version of the vehicle now represents the brand’s flagship convertible, and we’ve seen a few of these pass through our inventory in addition to the regular model.
