The second generation of McLaren’s Super Series, the 720S, has leaked online ahead of its official debut later this month at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.

The image shows off the all-new supercar’s rear three-quarter view and confirms it will indeed be called 720S. It also pictures the car with its dihedral doors fully deployed, revealing its revised and more driver-focused cabin with the Folding Driver Display they revealed yesterday. Other features we notice are an active rear spoiler that sits flush with the body work when it’s not deployed, similar to the McLaren P1’s, new wheels and carbon ceramic brakes.

Another interesting attribute revealed by this leaked image is the 720S’ luggage space. McLaren promises the supercar’s cabin will deliver “unparalleled visibility and space,” and it appears they’ve made good on their word with a large void located behind the seats for luggage and storage purposes.

Powering the 720S will be a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine producing 720 horsepower, which should give it more than enough grunt to stick it to competitors like the Ferrari 488 GTB and Lamborghini Huracan. An adaptive chassis, electronic variable drift mode and bespoke Pirelli P-Zero Corsa tires will help out when the going gets twisty.

More information on the McLaren 720S will become available following its debut in Geneva next week.
