Search Driven for McLaren for sale
A newly developed Track Pack looks set to take the already bonkers performance of the McLaren 720S supercar to a whole new level.
The fully-functional updates establishes a new performance benchmark for the company's Super Series line-up, and follows on from the Sports Series 570S Track Pack released last year.
The 720S Track Pack was developed in close collaboration with the same McLaren Customer Racing division engineers responsible for developing the fully-fledged 720S GT3 race car, with both cars tested alongside each other in the Czech Republic last week.

The road-legal 720S Track Pack features both functional and visual upgrades that shed 24kg off weight in the process. Based on 720S Performance specification – with hood air intakes, rear fender air intakes, door mirror casings in carbon fibre and engine bay ambient lighting – the Track Pack adds Super-Lightweight 10-Spoke Forged Alloy Wheels, an MSO Defined Gloss Finish Visual Carbon Fibre Active Rear Spoiler and a Sports Exhaust.
The cabin sees new Lightweight Carbon Fibre Racing Seats in either regular or touring size, MSO Carbon Fibre Extended Gearshift Paddles and a steering wheel trimmed in black Alcantara. A titanium bar mounted behind the seats supports adds to the performance theme and anchor 6-point harnesses for both driver and passenger.
Perhaps of most benefit to the driver is the McLaren Track Telemetry (MTT) system included in the Track Pack . Using three video cameras built into the car and data-logging software, MTT allows a driver to monitor their performance and understand where opportunities to improve lie. A range of real-time data is displayed – such as lap times, sector splits and driver comparisons – as well as video footage to spot missed apexes and premature braking points.

Powered by McLaren’s latest twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine, the 720S can accelerate from 0 to 200km/h in just 7.8 seconds, with active suspension and carbon-ceramic disc brakes optimising dynamic performance in corners and braking zones.
The 720S in Performance specification with Track Pack is available to order from McLaren Automotive retailers for 2019 delivery.
