McLaren 720S Gets An 80PS Power Bump With Tuning Package

The McLaren 720S has already proved that it’s faster on the drag strip than many more powerful cars.

Nevertheless, owners who would like even more power than the 720PS (710hp) and 770Nm (568lb-ft) the twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 generates in stock form can check out what Wheelsandmore has in store.

The German tuner offers a two-stage upgrade for the supercar. Stage 1 adds an extra 50PS (49hp) and 80Nm (59lb-ft) of torque, and with the Stage 2 tune the 720S is good for 800PS (789hp) and 880Nm (649lb-ft).

Remapping the ECU and throwing in a new exhaust system, which is what this tuning job is all about, has probably shaved something off the 720S’ 2.9-second 0-100km/h (0-62mph) time, though Wheelsandmore didn’t divulge any performance figures.

The 720S also gets height-adjustable lowering springs and aftermarket wheels with body colored outer parts. The rims, which are available in three patterns (FIWE, FORK or 6Sporz²) measure 9.5×20-inch at the front and 11.5×20 or 12×21-inch at the rear and are wrapped in Pirelli tires.

The smaller set is said to be suitable for “permanent or sporadic use on the racetrack”, whereas the larger is best for “maximum optics” – that is, looking good…
