McLaren recently pulled the curtain back on their latest offering, the 750S, during an exclusive event ahead of the Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix weekend, marking its debut in Southeast Asia. While it may share a familial resemblance with the outgoing 720S, the 750S is more than a mere incremental upgrade, boasting significant enhancements across various facets.
The front-end aerodynamics of the 750S have been meticulously refined, featuring redesigned lower air intakes, an extended splitter seamlessly integrated into the fascia, and subtly tapered headlight housings. Notable changes extend to the rear, where a revamped exhaust system, reminiscent of the McLaren P1 hypercar, replaces the twin-pipe configuration of the 720S. The new design not only enhances aesthetics but also provides a more immersive auditory experience. Additionally, a reimagined active rear wing, elevated by 60 mm, serves as both a downforce generator and a powertrain cooler. True to its nomenclature, the 750S boasts 30 additional horsepower, reaching a total output of 750 bhp and 800 Nm of torque from its twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 powerplant. A rigorous weight-loss regimen, involving 30% new and revised components, contributes to a leaner frame at just 1,277 kg, achieving a remarkable power-to-weight ratio of 587 hp per tonne.
Beyond the figures, the 750S accelerates from 0-100 km/h in a swift 2.8 seconds, hitting 200 km/h in 7.2 seconds, with a top speed of 332 km/h when given ample runway.
The driving experience is further refined with improved suspension tuning, featuring softer front springs and firmer rear ones, adjusted struts accumulators, and a revised Proactive Chassis Control system. These enhancements promise precision, accuracy, and comfort behind the wheel.
Inside the cabin, subtle yet effective revisions include the repositioning of the Active Dynamic switchgear along the instrument display, allowing the driver to adjust suspension and powertrain modes without relinquishing control of the steering wheel. The McLaren Control Launcher (MCL) debuts on the 750S, providing convenient access to a customizable set of aero, handling, powertrain, and transmission settings.
Buyers can personalize their 750S experience with alcantara upholstery as standard, while two interior themes, Performance and TechLux, introduce Nappa leather trim to varying degrees. McLaren Special Operations (MSO) offers further customization, allowing customers to choose unique colors for the external bodywork or even create bespoke paint.
The 750S is priced at S$1,398,000 for the coupe and S$1,548,000 for the Spider open-top variant, excluding COE, signaling McLaren's commitment to setting new benchmarks in the supercar arena.
