McLaren 720S Doesn’t Need Extra Ponies, Gets 35 Of Them Anyway

McLaren’s latest Super Series model, the 720S, is currently one of the fastest supercars on Earth, yet this example just left the DMC workshop with a bunch of technical and visual mods.

Covering the former part are the new exhaust system and tuned ECU, which lift the twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine’s output to 755 PS (744 hp / 555 kW) and 780 Nm (575 lb-ft) of torque.

DCM claims that with the extra 35 PS (35 hp / 26 kW) and 10 Nm (7 lb-ft) of torque, the McLaren 720S slashes one tenth of a second from the official 2.9 seconds required for the 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint, whereas top speed probably remains the same at 341 km/h (212 mph).

With the power bump completed, the tuner went on adding a new front bumper with an attached apron that uses the original mounting points and is made from carbon fiber. There are new side skirts as well, and a copy of the original base wing made from the same lightweight material sits at the back.

The German tuner says that “McLaren’s Brake-Wing function still works”, and there are “no errors when using the aerodynamic solution”.

No interior upgrades are available, but before rounding things up, DMC installed a new forged aluminum wheel set. The 9.5×20-inch front and 11×21-inch rear rims have a dark look and come with a set of Pirelli tires, 245/30 and 305/25 in size, respectively.

DMC hasn’t announced other possible future updates for the British supercar, but given that their 570S comes with as much as 642 PS (651 hp / 486 kW), it’s not unreasonable to think they might be planning a more impressive power increase for the 720S.

    Whenever I think of this car it pisses me off that FCA [as in Dodge] doesn’t have a super light car to cram their hellcat HEMI into.
