Novitec's McLaren 720S Has 794bhp And Added Meanness

The German tuner's new 720S tuning programme includes carbonfibre addendum and a power boost

The world of supercar tuning firms can churn out some particularly ostentatious creations, but this is a nicely subtle effort, isn’t it? Well, about as subtle as a McLaren 720S on 21-inch rear/20-inch front wheels can be.

It’s the work of Novitec, and we rather like the look of it. Along with the aforementioned rims - the German firm’s forged MC1 design - 720S owners looking for more visual aggression can also add various carbonfibre bits.

On the menu, you’ll find canards, side skirts, headlight surrounds, a rear spoiler, rear diffuser and front splitter, all made from carbonfibre. Our favourite detail, though, has to be the redesigned carbonfibre rear deck.

As proven by a seemingly endless stream of YouTube drag races, the 720S isn’t exactly wanting for straight-line pace. Regardless, Novitec will make it faster, should you wish. There is a trio of tuning packages, the most potent bumping the power to 794bhp and the torque to 648lb ft, up from 710bhp and 568lb ft. Go for this, and 0-62mph will be possible in just 2.7 seconds and 0-124mph in a stomach-scrambling 7.5 seconds. With enough space, it’ll keep going until 215mph.

The extra poke comes via an ECU fiddle and the fitting of a new stainless steel exhaust. The new pipework sounds pretty sweet too if you listen past the needlessly bombastic music in the promo video above.
