Video: six ways the new McLaren 750S is better than the already brilliant 720S
Yes, it’s another new McLaren supercar that looks… exactly like the old McLaren supercar. What's going on?
Yes, it’s another new McLaren supercar that looks… exactly like the old McLaren supercar. But the idea with the new 750S isn’t to blow the poor old 720S into the middle of last week. No, the game plan here is to take what was already one of the very finest supercars on sale and fine-tune its foibles.
So there’s a little more power from the 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8. And a little more bandwidth in the suspension. More downforce. Less weight. But none of that matters. What’s crucial is that McLaren ups the fit and finish, irons out the foibles, and turns its brilliantly useable supercar into something you’d really fancy daily driving – even though it’s got more power than a P1 (minus the electric).
A tricky mixture to concoct. Top Gear magazine’s Ollie Kew has driven the 750S coupe on track and the Spider on the road to see if the British Ferrari rival has pulled it off.
