India has a rapidly growing car market. While most of the luxury brands, like Ferrari, Maserati, Lamborghini are present in the Indian market, a few of them are not yet here. Mclaren is one such brand which doesn’t officially sell any vehicle here yet and no one has privately imported one into the country either, till now.
What we have here is the first ever Mclaren that has made its way to India, to a garage which already has a 488 and a Huracan in Bengaluru. Not only is this the first Mclaren to make it to India, but this is also a very special one. Mclaren unveiled the all-new 720S in Geneva this year and the owner managed to get an allotment of his left hand drive 720S earlier this month in Dubai and has flown it down to India now on CARNET. The vehicle is a Launch Edition vehicle in Performance spec and has been finished in Memphis red.
The vehicle is powered by a 4.0 liter twin-turbocharged V8 making 710 Bhp and 770 Nm. There are only 400 Launch editions, this being one of them. The company claims 0-100 time of just 2.8 seconds. The company had pre-specced the Launch Edition to make sure that deliveries could be done at a faster rate.
The Performance trim includes the following:
Exterior carbon fibre pack with air intakes on the hood, door mirrors, rear air intakes, meteor grey front splitter and front air intakes and rear diffuser, Satin graphite window surrounds on the outside, engine ambient lighting, Alcantara and Nappa leather upholstery, Zircon silver and brushed iridium brightwork, interior ambient lighting and carbon fibre components on the inside as well.
