McLaren 720S now available with optional Track Pack

McLaren is making good progress with the development programme of its 720S GT3 race car, and has decided to give the road-going version of its Super Series model some delightful goodies.

Called the Track Pack, it is a new specification available for those in the market for a 720S, meant to deliver a lighter, more track-focused experience for enthusiasts who frequent race tracks.

Those who opt for the package will get a car based on the 720S Performance specification, whereby the standard features include carbon-fibre bonnet air intakes, rear fender air intakes and door mirror caps, along with engine bay ambient lighting.

Added to this mix are super-lightweight 10-spoke forged alloy wheels, MSO Defined carbon-fibre rear spoiler in a gloss finish and a sports exhaust. As for the interior, lightweight carbon-fibre racing seats (available in two sizes), MSO Defined carbon-fibre gearshift paddles in a satin finish and black Alcantara-trimmed steering wheel can also be found.

According to McLaren, all these items, along with a titanium bar mount for six-point harnesses help to trim 24 kg of weight. The Track Pack also adds a bespoke Track setting to the car’s list of available drive modes. A McLaren Track Telemetry (MTT) system helps record your time on the circuit with three video cameras and data-logging software.

Unchanged here is the powertrain, which still consists of a M840T 4.0 litre twin-turbo V8 that churns out 720 PS at 7,500 rpm and 770 Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm. A seven-speed dual-clutch SSG gearbox is mated to the mill, which allows for a zero to 100 km/h time of 2.9 seconds and 341 km/h top speed.

The Track Pack will set you back 28,360 British pounds (RM153,061) before including the car itself, and if you want a 720S in Performance spec with the Track Pack, the sum needed is 224,700 British pounds (RM1,212,725).
