New McLaren 720S Appeals To Younger Generations

11 Apr 2017

The new McLaren 720S is already well on its way to achieving cult status, joining the legendary McLaren P1 in the Lego Speed Champions range of model cars. The Lego Speed Champions McLaren 720S, accompanied by a car designer mini figure and design studio desk, complete with coffee cup, original design sketch and 3D-printed model car, will be available to buy from 1st June. Builders aged seven and above and supercar enthusiasts alike can show off their design skills and build this awesome model, then put on a racing helmet and switch from supercar designer to racing driver. The imagination and complexity required to create a representation of the aerodynamically shrink-wrapped, sculpted body shape of the 720S, meant that it took a Lego designer a year to perfect and freeze the design of the new model. The real McLaren 720S was unveiled on 7th March at the Geneva International Motor Show, introducing the second generation McLaren Super Series and raising established limits in the supercar sector. Powered by a new, twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine developing 720bhp, the new McLaren supercar accelerates from standstill to 200km/h in just 7.8 seconds and has a maximum speed of 341km/h.
