2018 McLaren 720S Rendering Looks Promising; Launch In March

Written By:

British supercar manufacturer McLaren recently announced that the replacement for the 650S is set to arrive at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in early March. There are no official pictures of the replacement car, which is codenamed as P14.

A member of the McLaren Life has rendered three images and predicts how the car will look like. Officially the model will be named as the 720S and will feature a new 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 motor from McLaren.

The rendered images are highly inspired from the spy shots leaked online in September last year. Then, the images revealed a matte grey P14 prototype without any camouflage decals on it. It is also believed that it is the production-spec body of the new supercar.

McLaren recently announced its new carbon fibre Monocage II body structure. According to company's Track22 business plan, a total of 22 new cars will be launched between now and 2022. Among them, 15 of the upcoming models will fall under Super Series category and will use the new ultra-lightweight carbon fibre structure.

The key difference with the outgoing chassis is the weight. The new platform is 18 kg lighter than the outgoing body structure, which means the McLaren 720S will weigh some 1,283 kg.

The new front fascia features a set of re-designed headlights and a more pronounced nose. There is also a pair of LED accenting lights which makes the model look more futuristic. The new design also plays an important role in term of aerodynamics.

The 720S looks like a mix between the 650S and the hypercar P1. The new model will take on the rivals from Italy - the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta and Lamborghini Aventador S.
