McLaren Has a Winner On Its Hands If The New 720S Looks Like This

McLaren recently confirmed that its successor to the 650S will debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2017 in early March.

If the latest speculation is to be believed, the model will be dubbed the 720S and debut a new 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine from the Woking-based automaker. While no official pictures or teasers of the P14 have been released, a member on the McLaren Life forum and Drive Tribe has rendered how the car could look.

The renderings in question are based around spy shots which surfaced of the model back in September. They showed a matte grey P14 prototype absent of any camouflage and believed to be adorned with its production-spec body. Although it’s hard to say why McLaren tested such a revealing prototype in public, we now know just how much of a looker the 720S will be.

At the front, it will include a set of thoroughly re-designed headlights which don’t mimic the shape of the brand’s logo like all of its existing models. Additionally, the shape of the vehicle’s cabin will closely mimic that of the P1 hypercar as will some of its prominent lines and creases along the sides.

All in all, the model looks like an appropriate mix between the outgoing 650S and the P1 and seems set to make the design of the 488 GTB seems pedestrian.

  • Tumbi Mtika

    It looks like an upcoming Progen(GTA 5) car.

      You’re in for a surprise… just google Progen Itali GTB.

        GASP!!!

    “making 488 GTB design seem pedestrian”?!
    yeah sure….

    • johnmarsh

      Not very difficult considering the 488 looks like a 2011 car…

      • alexxx

        more likely you are 2011 kid
        :-)))

      • nastinupe

        Well it’s based off of a 2011 design so…

  • Ha HA HA HA !!!, Looks like a smaller P1 ,)))

  • LeftLanePrius

    Reminds me of the F1 and P1 at first glance.

  • kachuks

    Too much bubble top from this angle but the fascia is a very nice evolution of the current design.

  • baofe

    You’re not fooling anyone with those terrible renders. Atleast don’t put such a clickbaity title stating that this could be the new 720.. For shame carscoops

  • Bo Hanan

    That design IS NOT a winner.

  • HOPE NOT.

  • Balcis

    Now I call this a rendering.

  • fabri99

    The only realistic part is the (ugly) front end.

  • Bananarama

    This comment section is atrocious.

    This is not a rendering in the sense of it being 3D modeled and then snapshotted. It’s literally a photoshopping of color and trim pieces onto a completely naked spyshot from September, as the article clearly states.

    This is 99% exactly what the car will look like aside from some minor warping on the very bottom area of the front bumper and trim. Sometimes I wonder about the people who browse this site…

  • Looks like a squashed teletubbie. I love McLaren performance but their designs leave a lot to be desired.

  • sidewaysspin

    Looking kind of like a 2001 Toyota Celica.

  • Cameron

    I think its ugly as hell… Is carscoops advertising for these people or what?!
