McLaren 720S Spider Gains Power And Widebody From Novitec

Jan 18, 2020

Hips don't lie – this isn't an ordinary 720S. As if there's even such a thing as an ordinary McLaren.

Attention, one-percenters. If for whatever reason you’re not satisfied with the stock appearance of a McLaren 720S Spider, you might want to give Novitec a call as the German tuner will happily sell you one of the 15 N-Largo packages planned for production. The droptop supercar comes with a carbon fiber widebody kit perfected in the wind tunnel for maximum aerodynamic performance and sits on Vossen wheels measuring 20 inches at the front and 21 inches for the rear axle.

Novitec also fiddled with McLaren’s twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 and boosted its output from the series 710 horsepower and 568 pound-feet (770 Newton-meters) of torque to a massive 794 hp and 648 lb-ft (878 Nm). The additional output has been obtained by installing a new exhaust system corroborated with a plug & play control unit adapted for the 720S Spider.

Thanks to the newly unlocked oomph, the 720S now runs the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in 2.7 seconds or two tenths of a second quicker than when the car leaves the gates of the Woking factory. It gets even better as the 0-124 mph (0-200 km/h) task is now completed in a mere 7.5 seconds or 0.3s sooner than before. Top speed has also been marginally changed, going up from 212 mph (341 km/h) to 215 mph (346 km/h).

Beyond the exterior changes and the significant power growth, Novitec will also customize the interior to your liking. As a matter of fact, the leather and Alcantara can be had in just about any color you can think of, “all finished with greatest love of detail.” Pricing hasn’t been disclosed, but math starts at well over the $315,000 asking price of a standard McLaren 720S Spider in the United States.
