Killer looks and a striking, sleek new design
The fact that McLaren's designers took their inspiration for the 720S from the great white shark is evident in the lithe, sleek lines of the carbon fibre chassis. An innovative new teardrop-shaped cabin allows for incredibly thin pillars supporting a glass canopy, which floods the cabin with light and gives the driver incredible 360-degree visibility. Everything about the design is focused on controlling air flow over the car and lowering the drag coefficient. LED headlights are subtly recessed into eye sockets, door ducts reduce drag and maximise cooling, and at the rear, a wide spoiler emphasises the car's muscularity.
Like the car's beating heart, the visible rear engine bay illuminates in red at night. Available in a range of striking paint finishes, the launch colour of Belize Blue is particularly evocative of the car's aquatic inspiration and makes a striking impact. Plus, who doesn't love the thrill of activating those dihedral doors that highlight the car's cutting edge styling and epitomise the McLaren 720S's ability to harmonise performance and aesthetics?
