Barrett-Jackson countdown: 2018 McLaren 720S

This is the 10th in a 30-day countdown to Barrett-Jackson’s annual Las Vegas collector car auction

Lot #748 at Barrett-Jackson’s Las Vegas auction is a 2018 McLaren 720S, a first-year, limited-production example of the second-generation Super Series supercar.

The 720S accelerates from 0-62 mph in 2.9 seconds, reaches 124 mph in 7.8 seconds and has a top speed of 212 mph. It will do the quarter-mile sprint in 10.3 seconds.

This is a highly optioned 720S with the Performance Package, sports exhaust with extensive McLaren Special Operations factory additions, including carbon fiber throughout the interior and exterior. The car has a dry weight of 2,917 pounds. 

Empowering this McLaren is a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 that produces 710 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque. The engine is paired to a 7-speed McLaren dual-clutch automatic Seamless Shift gearbox. 

Exterior features include special-order Black Amethyst paint, carbon-fiber mirror arms, rear deck engine covers, sill panel, diffuser and aero bridge. The exposed carbon-fiber MonoCage tub is a beautiful contrast to the finish. 

Interior features include carbon fiber throughout, including the MSO steering wheel and paddles, black Alcantara and leather, electric heated memory seats, soft-close doors, navigation, Bluetooth, HomeLink system, climate control, Bowers & Wilkins 12-speaker audio system, park assist, LED headlights and an automatic vehicle lift system. 

The car rides on factory cast-alloy wheels finished in Stealth, fitted with Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires and has carbon-ceramic brakes. 

This 720S shows 319 actual miles. It was professionally ceramic-coated upon delivery, and is under factory warranty.
