2024 McLaren 750S Succeeds 720S, Adds Polish To Performance Focused Track Weapon


McLaren promised that a successor to the 720S was coming but kept the key details tightly under wraps, but at long last we finally get to see the next chapter in McLaren performance, with the British supercar maker formally unveiling the 2024 McLaren 750S which aims to deliver more performance, luxury and style to bespoke supercar buyers. 

750S Exterior and Interior Benefit From Upgrades

The exterior styling of the 750S retains some of the core DNA that defined its predecessor but a new front bumper helps channel cold air into the redesigned air intakes which are narrower and more rounded than before. The larger front splitter helps improve aerodynamics and works together with the rear wing to help provide 25 percent more downforce than what you got on the 720S. The rear of the supercar gets a new rear bumper as well as a new center-exit exhaust that is inspired by the P1 hypercar. The exhaust system itself forced McLaren engineers to raise the rear wing by two inches to help it mesh with the styling, but the back also gets bigger intakes, a new rear deck and a new mesh design for the rear grille though those changes will only be noticed by detail oriented observers.

The interior of the 750S gets Alcantara accents standard, but buyers now have two new interior choices to choose from: TechLux and Performance. The TechLux theme uses Nappa leather throughout the interior and is meant to appeal to black-tie buyers while the racier Performance theme combines the Alcantara and Nappa Leather appointments together for a distinctive look that’s ready for the track and the street. Darkened metal accents and newly available customizable ambient lighting add splashes of contrast to the performance ready cabin. The digital instrument cluster gets moved to a binnacle on the steering wheel while the new McLaren Control Launcher system allows owners to save various vehicle settings with the system giving access to those presets via a single button press. The infotainment system also gets new software and now comes with Apple CarPlay standard with Android Auto remaining unavailable for the time being. 

750S Adds More Muscle To The V8

Performance for the 2024 McLaren 750S comes from a 730-horsepower, twin-turbo, 4.0-liter, V-8 engine which is paired with a seven-speed sequential gearbox and standard rear-wheel drive. This V8 has helped form a potent backbone for McLaren performance over the years and it powered the outgoing 720S, but the small bump in power makes the 750S a more potent offering. McLaren claims that the combination is enough to get the 750S coupe to 60 mph in 2.7-seconds with the slightly heavier Spider doing the same feat in 2.8-seconds. the setup also allows both versions to hit a top speed of 206 mph which is down slightly from the 720S’s 212 mph top speed. We look forward to seeing how the 750S measures up in a future review especially if McLaren’s assurances of the suspension being more precises are to be believed. 

McLaren engineers also equipped the car with the new Proactive Chassis Control III system which has three percent softer springs in the front while the rear gets springs that are seven percent firmer than before. The novel nose lift system is also improved too, with the front of the car being able to be raised or lowered in 4 seconds (the 720S’s system took 10 seconds to go up or down.) McLaren designed the nose-lift system specifically for the U.S. market and it has proven to be a popular choice for customers. 

Look for the 2024 McLaren 750S to make its appearance in dealerships later this year. The coupe will start at $324,000 (pricing does not include destination) while the droptop Spider model will start at $345,000.
