• McLaren is expected to replace the retired 720S with a new model called the 750S, as first reported by Automotive News.
  • The report claims the 750S will gain 30 hp and be a “little more aggressive” than the outgoing 720S.
  • Along with new design details inside and out, the 2024 McLaren 750S is slated to go on sale later this year starting at roughly $340K.

When McLaren officially said goodbye to the 720S at the end of last year, we knew a successor was on the way, but we didn’t know anything about it. That changes with today’s news that McLaren is expected to call the 720’s replacement the 750S, per a scoop by Automotive News.

Mightier V-8 and Sharper Handling

Citing an anonymous source with inside information, the AN report claims the 750S will share the same platform and powertrain with its predecessor, but the new model will have myriad enhancements. For example, the twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 will carry over to the 750S, but the engine is said to have revisions that add 30 horsepower, increasing output from 710 to 740 hp.

The 720S was already a wonderful track car—as we experienced first-hand at our 2018 Lightning Lap event. Still, it wasn’t nearly as intense in that regard as the McLaren 765LT we lapped. The 750S is expected to fall somewhere between those two on the performance spectrum, suggesting it’ll have sharper handling than the 720S but won’t be as brutish as the 765LT.

New Looks Outside and In

We don’t yet know what the 750S’s exterior will look like, but the AN story paints a picture of a machine that’ll draw from newer McLaren models as well as still resemble the car it’s replacing. There’s talk of a revised front bumper, bigger side air intakes, and a larger active rear wing à la the 765LT. Of course, new paint options and different wheel designs will surely be part of the package.

Inside, the 750S will likely take inspiration from the new plug-in-hybrid McLaren Artura and even the wild windshield-less Elva. The 750S is said to have a similar steering-column-mounted gauge cluster as those two, and switchgear for selectable drive modes and such will now be found on the cluster’s bezel.

Coupe and Spider Coming This Fall

Even before we knew the name of the 720S’s replacement, Nicolas Brown, McLaren’s president of the Americas region, earlier this year told AN the new car was already sold out “through deep 2024.”

Today’s news also suggests what most of us could figure out on our own: The 750S will be super expensive, with AN’s source saying it’ll likely cost 10 percent more than its predecessor. The 2023 720S coupe started at $310,500, so it’s safe to say the 750S coupe will cost at least $340K.

Unlike with previous McLaren launches, the upcoming 750S is said to debut with both coupe and spider (read: convertible) body styles. An official reveal is said to be coming later this month, with production supposedly slated to start this September.

A McLaren spokesperson has yet to respond to our request to confirm the new model will, in fact, be called the 750S.
