McLaren’s next flagship supercar – known internally as the 750S – will reportedly be unveiled in April, just four months after production of the 720S ended.
The successor of McLaren 720S Supercar – named 750S within the UK company – to be announced in April 2023, according to foreign reports.
Production of the McLaren 720S ended in January 2023 after a five-year run, and convertible examples of the track-focused version of the supercar – the 765LT – will be available in the near future.
A McLaren insider is said to have said that Automotive News The 750S will be an evolution of the 720S, although it is not known whether it will continue with the alphanumeric designations of previous McLarens or use a ‘proper’ name.
The publication’s source claims McLaren will release its first teaser of the 750S later this month, ahead of a full reveal in April 2023.
According to the report, the 750S will be powered by the 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine from the McLaren 720S, rather than a more powerful version of the Artura’s 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 hybrid.
Compared to the McLaren 720S, the 750S is said to get a boost in output – from 530kW to 552kW – but it won’t be as powerful as the track-focused 765LT, which produces 563kW from the same V8 engine.
Accordingly Automotive NewsThe 750S will be McLaren’s last new car to launch without electrification, although the UK-based company will continue to use hybrid systems across its model range.
The exterior of the McLaren 750S will reportedly be a major refresh of the 720S’ five-year-old design, incorporating elements of the company’s recently introduced supercars – like the Artura – with a new front bumper, larger air intakes and a larger air brake.
As reported in December 2022, McLaren has established a design collaboration with Lockheed Martin’s “Skunk Works” division, leaning on the US-based advanced aerospace company to provide a more futuristic design approach for its next-generation cars , as the super sports car manufacturer claims .
Automotive News The McLaren 750S’ digital instrument cluster will reportedly be moved from the dashboard to the steering column, while the control buttons for suspension settings and driving modes could be moved from the center console to the dashboard surround.
If the McLaren 750S is launched this year, it could provide a much-needed cash injection for the British automaker, which has reportedly been in financial distress for a number of years.
In December 2022, news agency Bloomberg McLaren recently sold a number of collector vehicles from its historic fleet to Mumtalakat Holding Co. – the automaker’s Bahrain-based owners – to fund “technical upgrades” for the Artura hybrid supercar.
That said a spokesman for McLaren Bloomberg The sale netted an additional £100m ($180m) for the struggling British automaker, which posted a loss of £203m ($351m) between January and September 2022.
