McLaren 720S Makes 1st North American Appearance at Amelia Island

The all-new McLaren 720S, first unveiled in Geneva this past March, is the new flag-bearer for the automaker and its Super Series lineup. This spring the sports car made its first appearance in North America, lighting up the prestigious Amelia Island Concours d’Élégance in Florida, before heading for New York and its International Auto Show in April.

Fitted with a 4.0L twin-turbo V8, which is some 40% different from the previous 3.8L version, generates up to 710 hp and 568 lb-ft of torque. What’s more the lithe 720S only weighs 1,283 kg (2,828 lbs), which translates into 0-100 km/h acceleration in just 2.9 seconds and an ability to brake from that speed to a full stop in only 29.7 metres.
 
Just a little short on spare cash to pick up a new McLaren 720S in the coming months? It costs all of nothing to check out our magnificent photo gallery and sumptuous video filmed at the Florida automotive event, where several McLarens were on display, including an F1 LM which pays homage to the automaker’s triumph at 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1994.
