The McLaren 750S supercar possesses the last pure internal combustion engine structure before the British car company introduces auxiliary hybrid technology across its product range.
Launched in April 2023, McLaren 750S is considered a mid-life upgraded version (facelift) of the McLaren 720S sports car line. In mid-September 2023, this super product had its official launch in the Southeast Asian market with the first country being Singapore.
The McLaren 750S only has more than 30% new design details compared to the 720S, similar to the previous 12C and 650S. The exterior of the 750S is similar to the 720S because of its aerodynamic headlight cluster design with air intakes. The front bumper air vent is streamlined, similar to the McLaren Speedtail hypercar model.
Maintaining the carbon fiber monocoque chassis design, this supercar has an optimized dry weight of only 1,277 kg, 30 kg lighter than its predecessor. Meanwhile, the convertible version also weighs only 1,326 kg.
The weight optimization process is also carried out with a completely new cast wheel design, 13.8 kg lighter than the similar structure on the 720S. Advanced options such as advanced braking technology inherited from the McLaren Senna supercar, including carbon-ceramic brake discs, monolithic brake calipers and Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tires.
The rear spoiler has a 20% increased surface area and is 1.6 kg lighter thanks to carbon fiber material. The exhaust cluster is inspired by the McLaren P1 hypercar, placed 51 mm higher.
The interior space of the McLaren 750S is not too different from the 720S. The interior is covered with high-quality Nappa leather or combined with Alcantara material, and comes in 2 styles: TechLux and Performance. The standard carbon fiber racing seats are 17.5 kg lighter than those on the 720S, but the premium racing seat option is 33% lighter.
The 750S also has 2 additional control keys at the edge of the digital dashboard to adjust other operating features.
In terms of operation, the McLaren 750S owns the familiar 4.0L twin-turbo V8 engine code M840T, however the capacity is increased from 720 horsepower to 750 horsepower and 800 Nm of torque.
The car is upgraded to the Proactive Chassis Control III smart suspension system with new spring stiffness settings, 3 driving modes: Comfort, Sport and Track. Combined with the SSG 7-speed gearbox, the McLaren 750S is capable of accelerating from 0-100 km/h in 2.8 seconds, before reaching a maximum speed of 332 km/h.
In Singapore, the McLaren 750S and 750S Spider have starting prices of 1,398 million dollars and 1,548 million Singapore dollars, equivalent to about 1 million USD and 1.13 million USD, respectively.
