McLaren has taken the wraps off of the all-new 750S, the successor to the largely popular 720S. Just like its predecessors, the company will offer the new 750Sin both hard-top and Spider trims.

So, what’s new? Apart from minor design changes, McLaren claims that the 750S is 30 per cent newer internally compared to the 720S.

Starting with perhaps the biggest change here, the new supercar now tips the scale at  1,277kg dry (30kg lesser), while offering a power bump of 750PS and 800Nm, which makes it the most powerful offering in McLaren’s lineup.

The trimming of the fat can be contributed to extensive weight-saving measures, which include carbon fibre-shelled alloys, carbon fibre-shelled race seats and tone-downed interiors, including a revised instrument cluster.

Changes to the twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8, on the other hand, are more subtle with a new triple-layer head gasket, the addition of high-pressure turbos, a new fuel pump, lighter pistons and a sports exhaust.

Thanks to the weight loss and the power boost, the McLaren 750S can now accelerate from 0-100kmph in just 2.8 seconds, with a top speed of 331kmph. The company claims this makes it 10 per cent faster than the 720S.

The interiors have seen an overhaul as well, with an option of Alcantara and Nappa leather upholstery on offer, with Apple CarPlay and a wireless charger now offered as standard.

Along with it, you’ll also McLaren’s Control Launcher in the central display which allows drivers to save their favourite aero, engine, handling and more configurations.

Design-wise, the 750S now comes with a new front bumper and a larger splitter at the front, with bigger air intakes for better cooling. Then there’s the larger active rear wing, which has 20 per cent more surface area than before.

With McLaren starting their inning in India, the 750S is expected to arrive on our shores by the end of this year or early next year.
