When the McLaren 720S arrived for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show in 2017, it caused a huge wave of positive emotions and everyone suddenly realized that McLaren is really serious about fighting Ferrari and Lamborghini. The new 750S, which should fully replace this model, has set the bar very high. But according to the numbers, at first glance it seems that the British certainly did not underestimate anything in Woking.
The car, which will arrive in the 2024 model year, will be available in both coupe and spider body styles and is largely based on the latest version of the 720S. In many things, however, the engineers made huge progress, which resulted in the fact that the new product is the lightest and most powerful production car of the brand.
Under the hood remains a four-liter eight-cylinder with two turbochargers, which, however, has a different filling pressure. The car thus produces a staggering 750 horsepower and 800 Nm of torque, which causes it to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.7 seconds. However, the car is also smarter and configured differently.

The chassis is shaved off every extra gram of weight, the car also has new geometry, the latest third generation PCC suspension, faster steering gears and a new power steering pump. McLaren then claims that almost one third of the parts are brand new on the 750S.
In addition to performance, McLaren has also worked on weight, as it has opted for a lighter exhaust system. Overall, the car has a weight ratio of 579 horsepower per ton, which according to the manufacturer is the best figure in the segment. It must be added, however, that the 750S reaches this ratio only in its lightest version, for example with extremely light carbon fiber seats, which are not standard equipment. In its lightest form, the dry weight of the Coupé is 1281 kilograms (1326 kg for the spider).
Among other things, the car received a number of new aerodynamic modifications to the body, the most striking of which is the new active rear wing, which is larger than the 720S and works in the same way as the DRS system in Formula 1. As for the interior, it will offer Alcantara or Nappa leather upholstery, Apple CarPlay and other technical conveniences corresponding to current standards.
As far as price and availability are concerned, there is already a huge interest in the car, and in the USA, for example, all the pieces intended for the local market are already sold out. The price there is set at approximately 330,000 dollars, i.e. about 7.3 million crowns.
