We talk to the man behind the new McLaren 720S, McLaren’s new ‘super series’ sports car.

With 710bhp (720hp) the new 720S brings untold amounts of power to the class, where it’ll rival the Ferrari 488 GTB and the Lamborghini Huracan.

To go with the power comes an entirely new look featuring stacks of aerodynamic cleverness, a new carbon-fibre passenger cell and a heavily changed twin-turbocharged V8, of 4.0-litres instead of the 3.8-litre car.

We talk to McLaren’s Vehicle Line Director to bring you all you need to know about the 720 S’s tech and interior, before we bring you a drive of the car in the coming months.
