McLaren 750s | A new benchmark for supercar performance?

We talk to McLaren New Forest who recently picked up UK McLaren Retailer of the Year 2022, about the latest super series Mclaren, the 750s.

Anyone that knows McLaren will instantly recognise the lines of the outbound model, the 720s. Of course, it’s not a whole new car, and instead more a refined version of their super-series model.

Quick Facts

  • Twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 petrol engine now produces 750PS and 800Nm; 7-speed transmission with revised ratios optimises acceleration
  • No hybrid tech
  • Astonishing levels of performance: 0-100km/h in 2.8 seconds; 0-200km/h in 7.2 seconds (Spider 7.3 seconds) – quicker than its closest competitor
  • The new 750S is available to order now from McLaren New Forest

This is the lightest and most powerful series-production McLaren, the new V8-engined, rear-wheel drive 750S – which is available in coupe and convertible ‘Spider’ form – McLaren says this is unashamedly a supercar for the purist.

“Designed and engineered following meticulous analysis of the renowned McLaren 720S, the new 750S combines advances in weight-saving, powertrain performance, aerodynamics and dynamic excellence to elevate a benchmark driving experience to new heights. Around 30 per cent of 750S components are either new or changed in order to deliver these improvements and with them an even greater emotional connection to the car.”

The 750S Spider is designed with the same focus on minimising weight. It features a Retractable Hard Top (RHT), rollover protection system and a bespoke rear upper structure to the monocoque constructed from carbon fibre, but such is the strength of the carbon fibre monocoque that no additional reinforcement is needed. This ensures the Spider is equally impressive in power-to-weight terms and segment-leading at 566PS-per-tonne, at its lightest dry weight of 1,326kg.

“When you have a car recognised by so many drivers as a benchmark, to do something even better you have to examine every detail and really push hard for improvements that raise the bar again. This is what we have done with the new 750S and the light weight, V8 engine performance and outstanding dynamic abilities combine to deliver a supercar driving experience that hits new heights, with truly exhilarating levels of emotional connection.”

Michael Leiters, CEO, McLaren Automotive

The 750s is the lightest and most powerful series-production McLaren, with segment-leading power-to-weight ratio of 587PS-per-tonne (coupe, at lightest dry weight) – a 22PS advantage over its closest competitor

Carbon fibre monocoque construction is core to low vehicle weight – 750S is lighter than 720S by 30kg (DIN) and at lightest dry weight of just 1,277kg, a remarkable 193 kg less than its closest competitor

Final word by our Editor

“McLaren was dogged by criticism in recent times for bringing out too many new models and not focusing enough on ironing out faults in existing ones. Surely this is proof that McLaren is listening carefully and evolving their business model to closer meet the underlying needs and expectations of their clients. In this case, simply building on the already magnificent 720s.”
