Watch the Next McLaren Supercar Drift Around a Track

McLaren is continuing to tease its next supercar and this week, some information about its powerful brakes has been revealed.

Widely believed to be called the McLaren 720S, this second-generation Super Series that replaces the 650S will make its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show in early March. The supercar will be powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 that can rocket the coupe to 124 mph in 7.8 seconds. From that speed, it can also brake to a standstill in just 4.6 seconds and 117 meters, a figure that’s close to the McLaren P1’s stopping distance.

McLaren says the 720S will have lighter and stiffer brake calipers and standard carbon-ceramic discs. The British supercar maker also worked with Pirelli to develop bespoke P Zero Corsa tires that boast a 6 percent improvement in mechanical grip than the tires in the 650S.

The next McLaren will be built around a lightweight carbon fiber monocoque, have an advanced adaptive chassis with a variable drift mode, and an active wing.

McLaren also released a short video of the 720S drifting around a track during testing, which is the first time we’ve seen the supercar in motion. Watch the video below:

    Mclaren seriously plugging this vehicle

    If its any good it’ll sell itself without all the constant press releases and marketing …… gets rather tiresome
