New McLaren 720S Leaked Photo Shows 720HP Supercar In All Its Orange Glory

A leaked image has just surfaced online providing us with our first proper view of the upcoming McLaren 720S before the Geneva Motor Show.

Originally published (but since deleted) by Bloomberg, this picture shows off the tail of the 720S for the very first time while also confirming its long-rumored name. Additionally, it provides a glimpse at the supercar’s overhauled interior.

At the rear, McLaren has taken inspiration from the 675LT, P1 and Sports Series to create a flowing and characterful design that looks much more modern than the 650S this car replaces. It incorporates thin LED taillights, a large retractable rear wing/air brake and an aggressive rear diffuser.

Another interesting take away from this image is that the 720S appears to have quite a bit of luggage space, just like the 570GT. It includes a large glass rear compartment which appears to only hide part of the engine, suggesting that there may be some storage space behind the seats.

Inside, the 720S’ advanced rotating instrument cluster is visible as is an extensively redesigned center console, infotainment system and touchscreen.

Beyond its updated design, we already know that the McLaren 720S will debut a brand new twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine delivering, as the name suggests, 720 hp. That should be more than enough for it to show the Lamborghini Aventador SV a thing or two while also rivalling the more powerful but much heavier Ferrari 812 Superfast.

    McLaren has been on a roll lately, and this is no different.

    This just looks mad, like a proper supercar. And those doors… I love you McLaren <3

    i hope the front looks good this time. from this view, the rest looks good so far. however they could have done different rather than copy 911 GT3 wheels.

    Storage behind the seats???…unless you’re putting a 4 banger in there, there’s no way a 4.0L V8 will fit between the canopy and the rear wing/tail. You might be lucky enough to get a shelf for your brief case and purse.

    glass C pillar!?

      I noticed this too. If this is not some weird Photoshop anomaly, they will surely be constructed from polycarbonate to achieve that shape.

    And it’s not a [email protected]#%box like the F1 car.

    To think all you have to do to make a McLaren good is not have a Honda engine in it.

    • Tumbi Mtika

      Seriously though, I love McLarens so much, and this is just…

      Prost and Senna liked theirs. And last year’s team got a little better later on. Who knows how they’ll do in 2017?

        If preseason is anything to go by…

        Let’s just say I hope this is some extreme sandbagging from Woking.

    That cars looks like it’s ready to murder a Ferrari. That things looks fierce.

    • Belthronding Tinuviel

      ferrari is already dead:(

    Dashboard is a strong departure from the 650S, very SAAB-esque. The front will be the most controversial part of this car, no doubt.

    Was it Hannah Elliot that posted the picture?

  • Vassilis

    The rear is absolutely stunning. The front not so 🙁

  • SteersUright

    Extremely cool? Yes. Drives amazing? Who knows, but, probably being a McLaren and all. But, beautiful? Hell no, well maybe from just a few angles. Generally, McLarens look so disjointed and random with so many incongruent body lines and unlike the clean lines of something truly beautiful like: LaFerrari, Porsche 918, AMG GT, 911R, Huracan, Koenigsegg Regera, etc. McLaren truly need a new design language so their cars can stop looking like alien sci-fi movie, underwater, marine crafts. My personal opinion and I’m stickin to it. These are amazing cars. But beautiful they are not.

  • Elmediterraneo

    Good idea for the storage space like the 570 GT.

  • fabri99

    It worries me what the front-end could look like. Anyway, I like what I see and I’m sure it will be a fantastic machine.

  • It seems McLaren is stealing Lamborghini’s dream for kids factor. The power of good doors.
