The Design of Speed

McLaren 720S

While the P1 is undoubtedly McLaren's top dog, the 720S is the new monster on the block. Meant as a replacement to the 650S, the 720S was unveiled this year at the Geneva Motor Show.

For the new car, McLaren increased the engine size from 3.8 to 4 liters, allowing the twin-turbo V8 to generate 710 horsepower. That's enough to put this car in Club 200, with a top speed of 212 mph.

Robert Melville gets credit for the design of this gorgeous beast, which is studded with tricks, i.e. twin radiators just behind each of the headlights, twin-hinged dihedral doors similar to the original McLaren F1, a folding dashboard that minimizes size when put in track mode, and many more. To top it all off, McLaren claims the car can get nearly 25 miles per gallon. Amazing.
