The McLaren 750S to Replace the 720S as the Last Gas-Powered McLaren
Sadly, the McLaren 720S ended production at the end of 2022. However, the non-hybrid era of McLaren supercars hasn’t given up the ghost just yet. With the upcoming McLaren 750S announced earlier today, it seems that McLaren is giving their twin-turbo V8 setup one last hurrah.
The 750S comes with 30 more horsepower than the outgoing 720S
While McLaren’s cars are certainly evocative, their naming convention isn’t exactly imaginative. The McLaren 750S stands for the 750 metric horsepower produced by the new model. That’s 30 more ponies than the outgoing 720S, making it a natural evolution of McLaren’s current production car platform.
Reportedly the last non-hybrid McLaren
While early speculations hinted that the follow-up to the 720S would be based on the plug-in hybrid Artura, new reports say that the 750S won’t use any electrification. The McLaren 750S looks to be the last non-hybrid McLaren model, at least in terms of retail production cars. The 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 under the hood of the 750S produces its 750 horsepower without any electric assistance, so it may be the last of the readily available McLaren cars to deliver a raw supercar experience.
We may still see non-turbo halo cars in McLaren’s future in limited numbers. Special edition McLaren models like the Senna and Speedtail are just some examples of McLaren going outside the box to create a unique hypercar. That said, McLaren has stated its intention for an all-hybrid lineup by 2025, so we expect that the 750S will be the last of its kind for the British brand.
New body lines and tech
The 2024 McLaren model will see styling and tech updates to differentiate it from its outgoing sibling. Larger side intakes and an aggressive wing will make the new McLaren a head-turner when it arrives later this fall. A new front-end design should be coming as well, likely blending elements of both the 720S and the Artura.
Other updates include the digital dash from the hybrid Artura, and more in-house customization options will allow buyers to configure their McLaren 750S models from the factory.
Will the McLaren 750S be a coupe or convertible?
In early reports, the McLaren 750S looks to be available in both coupe and convertible body styles, similar to the outgoing 720. There has been no announcement on pricing for the new McLaren 750S, but expect an increase of 10 percent, according to Motor Authority.
When will the McLaren 750S go on sale?
Technically speaking, the McLaren 750S hasn’t even been through an official reveal. That reveal is currently set for April, when we’ll get to see the 750S in the flesh. Sales of the newest McLaren supercar should begin in September of this year.
Unfortunately, those who haven’t already ordered a new 750S may be waiting for a while. Dealers have been taking deposits for the 720S replacement since late 2022. So far, new McLaren supercar allocations are accounted for through all of 2023 and most of 2024.
