Customize your own McLaren 720S with the latest online configurator

Article by Christian A., on March 21, 2017

I’ve got some pretty awesome news for you, McLaren fans. You can now have your cars customized like you’re used to on your favourite video games. Now, you can have a car that looks like no one else’s, handpicked by you, and in your own personal style.

At last week’s 2017 Geneva Motor Show, McLaren just announced its newest project, the same time that the new 720S made its official debut. Simple but sleek. The 720S has a very masculine design. But we’re not just talking about design here. The firm developed a special microsite specially for the McLaren 720S Super Series. This site allows customers to fully configure their supercar based on their personal taste. It is broken down to three levels - Standard, Performance, and Luxury.

From its carbon fiber exterior, to the best quality leather interior. Take your pick from a total of 34 exterior colours, and a number of interior schemes. You get to be as conservative as you want, or go crazy wild with your colour options. There are no limitations.

Lighter, faster, and more powerful – that’s what the 720S is. It has a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, and a 4.0 liter V8 biturbo engine, with a 710 horsepower (529 kilowatts). But this time, it comes with lighter pistons, crankshaft, and connecting rods.

And speaking of weight, its super lightweight alloy wheels are 12.5kg lighter than the standard design and they come with options varying from 5-spoke to 10-spoke wheels in different shades and finishes.

Zero-to-sixty. In 2.8 seconds, the new McLaren has the ability to accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour), and 10.3 seconds for a quarter of a mile. As with stopping, the 720S can transition from 125 miles per hour (200 kph) to 0 in just 4.6 seconds with the help of its carbon-ceramic disk brakes.

Oh, and a day after the 720S was debuted, the McLaren Special Operations (MSO) team shows off a sexy 720S Velocity, wearing a Nerello Red carbon fiber body, that transitions to a Volcano Red paint towards the rear end, combined with metallic-bronze ten-spoke wheels.

I bet some of you will be checking out McLaren’s microsite after reading this article.

But for those of you who are not into supercars, or who can’t afford one just yet, I suggest you check out Amalgam’s 1:8 scale collection. Yes, they’ve got a range of McLaren’s modern and historic cars (even 1:1 scale steering wheels), just much smaller. It’s never too late to get started on your miniature collection.
