McLaren Mumbai, India, launches their lightest and one of the most powerful series-production McLaren to date, McLaren 750S, in both the Coupe and Spider avatars. Weighing in at a mere 1389kgs, the 750S twins sport an impressive power-to-weight ratio of 587PS-per-tonne. Inspired by the 765LT and 720S, the 750S offers technical advances in weight saving with the carbon fibre and light but strong alloy structure used on the sassy curves, minimalist on the inside and mercilessly gorgeous on the outside. Packed with the latest technology inside out, the diver’s cockpit features an 8-inch infotainment system with CarPlay and Alcantara interiors. Ground clearance is typical supercar but with one vehicle lift button, the McLaren 750S twins can lift in 4 secs when roads get tough.
Sporting a 30kg lighter body than the 720S, the 750S gets a 20% larger adaptive active rear wing like the 765LT, yet is 1.6kg lighter than the 720S wing, thanks to material science. Engineered at McLaren Composite Technology Center in Yorkshire, UK, the new active rear wing adds aerodynamic enhancements with three prominent operational positions to improve downforce, reduce drag and improve performance on high-speed braking. Aiding the performance from the V8 powertrain is McLaren Control Launcher (MCL) technology, debuting on the 750S alongwith McLaren’s electro-hydraulic steering system, one of the most precise directional controls among performance cars.
At the heart of the matter is a 4L twin-turbocharged V8 engine producing 750PS power, aptly adding to the car’s identity and a max torque output of 800Nm. Paired with a snappy 7-speed transmission, the 750S also debuts a revised kick-down control strategy for gearing. Further improving the dynamics of this car is McLaren’s Proactive Chassis Control (PCC III) linked-hydraulic suspension system. With a 6mm wider front track and new suspension geometry, the 750S ensures stable performance on roads and tracks alike. With that beautiful engine, quick transmission, new chassis and suspension geometry and loads of technology jargon, the McLaren 750S Coupe can sprint from 0-100Km/h in 2.8S and 0-200km/h in 7.2S. The Spider can achieve 0-200km/h in 7.3S. The McLaren 750S Coupe and Spider are welcome additions to the gorgeous McLaren portfolio in India.
