I was invited to the Cape Town launch unveiling of the all-new and revolutionary McLaren 720S supercar.
To get to grips with what this car means for McLaren you merely just need to look at a few of the numbers:
- 0 – 200 km/h in just 7.8 seconds with 100 km/h achieved in under 3 seconds!
- 720 Horsepower Twin-Turbo 4.0-litre V8 Engine
- 530 kW & 770 Nm
These kinds of numbers make the McLaren 720S an incredibly special beast and one which will quite literally blow you away in every sense.
Launched at McLaren’s beautiful V&A Waterfront Cape Town home base, the 720S that was unveiled represented a beautiful colour combination and one which belonged to a special McLaren customer. The 720S is available in 3 variants and priced from between R5.5-million – +- R8-million specification dependent.

With its hypercar attributes, lightweight sculpted body and racing pedigree, it is not difficult to understand where McLaren’s recent additional investments are being utilised with as much as £1 billion to be reinvested in improving their automobiles within the next 6 years.
