British supercar maker McLaren has made a Track Pack available for its 720S, making even more visceral and agile on a race circuit.
The McLaren 720S is one of the fastest vehicles we've ever tested at Cars.co.za. Not only is it absolutely ballistic in a straight line, but its cornering abilities nearly defy the laws of physics. Somehow McLaren thought it a good idea to add a track pack for 720S, making it even more potent.
McLaren says that the track pack for 720S is developed alongside the new 720S GT3 race car and both cars have been extensively tested on track. The Track Pack for the 720S comprises a weight saving of 24 kg through the fitment of carbon fibre hood air intakes, rear fender air intakes and door mirror casings. There are new lightweight 10-spoke forged alloy wheels, a new carbon fibre active rear spoiler and a sports exhaust. Inside, there are new lightweight carbon fibre racing seats, carbon fibre gearshifters and a titanium bar has been fitted which supports proper 6-point seatbelts for the driver and passenger.
The McLaren 720S Track Pack also features a dedicated Track setting loaded into its drive modes and this includes a telemetry system comprising 3 cameras and a data logger. Realtime data such as lap times and splits can be displayed using the car's infotainment system. The engine has not changed and we're not surprised as the 720S is fast enough. For the record, the twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 delivers 530 kW and 770 Nm, and it can hit 100 kph in a claimed 2.7 seconds.
