We’re Not Sure Whether to Love or Hate This Galaxy Widebody Kit for the McLaren 720S

ZACOE Has Created a Unique Body Kit For The McLaren 720S And it’s Like Nothing We’ve Ever Seen Before

Modifying the appearance of a supercar is a delicate procedure, which is why few studios engage in such endeavors. Usually, a lot of work goes into developing a supercar. This includes the body, which has to be both aesthetically pleasing and functional. ZACOE design is a studio that has a very meticulous approach when it comes to enhancing the aesthetics of any car and the Galaxy body kit designed for the McLaren 720S is a testimony to that.

What sets ZACOE’s treatment apart from other studios is the decision to go for more “suave” curves. What’s even more interesting is that they’ve intentionally left gaps between the bodywork, in order to make the car look more futuristic. In addition to looking cool, this also helps with airflow and heat dissipation.

Unsurprisingly, an extensive amount of carbon fiber has been used to make the body kit.

The wide front mouth is much more pronounced and incorporates the front splitter. On the side, there are new carbon-fiber elements that give the 720S a distinctive new look. From certain angles, it almost looks like the car has two front axles, similar to the Tyrrell P34 six-wheeler F1 car from the 1970s.

ZACOE’s focus is on the materials. The whole body kit is hand-crafted from special dry carbon fiber with a 240-gram density carbon-fiber cloth. It’s the same material grade as what AMG, Aston Martin, and other exclusive carmakers use. To guarantee durability and lightness at the same time, the carbon fiber is compressed in a high-pressure vacuum and baked.

The rear is heavily redesigned and the most notable feature is the integrated big rear wing. There are also four exhaust tips, which look like battleship cannons. The exhaust itself was made by Frequency Intelligent Exhaust (Fi Exhaust). This isn’t the first time ZACOE has partnered with Fi Exhaust, as they previously worked on exhaust conversions McLaren MP4-12C and 650S, dubbed McLaren 650S Volcano Conversion Kit. The new look also gives the 720S a very racecar-esque look, very reminiscent of the McLaren Senna.

ZACOE’s approach to enhancing the visuals of exotic cars may give birth to a new trend. The studio doesn’t “blindly follow trends” and you can tell, by looking at their latest project. ZACOE’s expertise in 3D Printing has allowed them to realize a bold design. “If the OEM design from the 720s is the alien spaceship from the outer space visiting the earth, then the ZACOE body kit for 720s is the transformation of a warship which is ready to depart the earth to explore the vastness of the cosmos.”

Born in 1992, I come from a family of motoring enthusiasts. My passion for cars was awoken at the age of six, when I saw a Lamborghini Diablo SV in a magazine. After high school I earned a master’s degree in marketing and a Master of Arts in Media and Communications. Over the years, I’ve practiced and become skilled in precision driving and to date have test driven more than 250 cars across the globe. Over the years, I’ve picked up basic mechanical knowledge and have even taken part in the restoration of a 1964 Jaguar E-Type and an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint. Lately, I’ve taken a fancy to automotive photography, and while modern cars are my primary passion, I also have a love for Asian Martial Arts, swimming, war history, craft beer, historical weapons, and car restoration. In time, I plan my own classic car restoration and hope to earn my racing certificate, after which I expect to establish my own racing team.  Read full bio
