McLaren has given its alluring 720S a hefty update, including a 30-hp boost that triggers a badge change to 750S. The 66 pounds McLaren cut from the 720S might seem small in terms of acceleration performance, but it lets McClaren claim the 750S as its lightest-ever “series production” model (which excludes limited models). A major cockpit revision enhances driver control, and a new exhaust system unleashes howling soundtrack. Best of all, there’s a choice between coupe and Spider models.
No, we did not transpose the numbers “675” and “765.” Earlier this year, McLaren introduced its latest lightweight, track-focused model, the 765LT. That’s not to be confused with the 675LT, introduced in 2015. The first deliveries are expected in October, starting at about $375,000. Here’s a closer look.
The McLaren 570S Spider has the same powertrain as in the 570S coupe, which of course also means a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. McLaren says the Spider will scoot from 0 to 60 mph in 3.1 seconds and reach a top track speed of 204 mph.
