Next Generation Super Series McLaren Gets Sideways in Video

The McLaren 720S Stops Nearly As Well As a P1 (Also It Drifts)

It's the combination of the new MonoCage II carbon-fiber chassis, the mid-mounted layout of the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8, the suspension, and the tires, Goodwin says in the video, that enables the 720S to lay down such nice slides.

Featured below is the "behind the scenes" video of drifting the second generation McLaren Super Series around a race track, while McLaren's chief test driver explains various aspects of the vehicle. With the ability to hit 124 miles per hour (200 kilometers per hour) in 7.8 seconds, it can then brake to a standstill in just 4.6 seconds and 127 yards (117 meters).

And if you're STILL not satisfied there's a little testing vid with McLaren's chief test driver Chris Goodwin below. Engineers have also optimised the brake pedal feel and modulation for better control. And the more guttural sound promised by McLaren thanks to the new exhaust system takes you even higher up over the head. There's also a new Pirelli P-Zero Corsa tyre to which McLaren is attributing a 6 per cent increase in mechanical grip over the 650S.




"The extreme performance and dynamic prowess of the second-generation Super Series, honed by testing at the limits and beyond, provides the ideal foundation for it to be the most complete supercar across the full range of use".

Mclaren will be debuting a successor to the mind-blowing 650S supercar at the Geneva Motor Show this year.
