McLaren 720S Le Mans special edition

Edward Green |
McLaren Automotive is celebrating one of McLaren’s greatest motorsport achievements with a special edition 720S coupé.


Just 50 of this Le Mans edition will be available. The fully functional roof scoop channels air to provide additional cooling for the powertrain and helps to drive heat evacuation ideal for the additional demands of circuit driving. The carbon fibre louvred front fenders reduce aerodynamic lift generated by the rotation of the front wheels, as well as reducing vehicle weight. Satin finish visual carbon fibre air vents, extended shift paddles and extended sill trim with McLaren branding from the same range are available.

720S Le Mans owners will be able to experience the astonishing performance delivered by the mid mounted, 720PS M840T 4.0 litre McLaren engine. The twin turbocharged V8 propels the car from 0 100 km/h (0 62 mph) in 2.9 seconds, 0 200 km/h (0 124 mph) in 7.8 seconds and on to a top speed of 341 km/h (212 mph). A carbon fibre Monocage II central structure and Proactive Chassis Control II suspension system help to ensure that the 720S is the lightest car in its class, with an unparalleled breadth of dynamic ability.

In common with every McLaren 720S, an extensive range of optional specification is offered, with MSO Defined and MSO Bespoke treatments also available to owners’ requirements. An array of gloss finish visual carbon fibre components, including diffuser, exterior door uppers, rear aero bridge, roof scoop and rear deck and service cover can be specified, with three component ‘packs’ additionally available, comprising gloss finish visual carbon fibre hood air intakes, door mirrors, rear fender air intakes; front splitter and rear bumper lower and roof and front air intakes.

To further enhance the motorsport connection and for track use, a titanium harness bar and 6 point harnesses from the MSO Defined range can be added. Satin finish visual carbon fibre air vents, extended shift paddles and extended sill trim with McLaren branding from the same range are available, and two option packs of satin finish visual carbon fibre interior components can be specified. The McLaren 720S Le Mans costs from £254,500r.
