McLaren 720S Gets New Track Pack Aimed At Customers Who Frequent Circuits

The 720S has already cemented its place as one of the fastest supercars of the planet, but that didn’t stop McLaren from launching a new package.

With the addition of the new Track Pack, the 720S sheds 24kg (52lbs) off its total weight thanks to new features like the super-lightweight, 10-spoke forged alloy wheels.

The pack also includes things like a gloss carbon active rear spoiler, a sports exhaust, body-hugging carbon-fiber racing seats in either regular or touring size, extended carbon gearshift paddles and a black Alcantara-trimmed steering wheel.

Also new is a bespoke Track setting in the 720S’ drive modes and McLaren’s Track Telemetry system. The latter uses three cameras that are built into the car, as well as advanced data-logging software to allow drivers to record, monitor and improve their performance on the track.

The twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 remains untouched, still producing 710hp (720PS), allowing McLaren’s latest Super Series model to accelerate from a standstill to 124mph (200km/h) in just 7.8 seconds.

The new Track Pack is a £28,360 option in the UK (about $37k in current exchange rates), with McLaren saying that it is cheaper than choosing the individual components from the extras list separately. Pricing for the 720S Track Pack begins at £224,700, with first deliveries expected in 2019.
