2020 McLaren GT by Novitec
As McLaren’s first dedicated grand tourer, the GT combines the best of all worlds, boasting supercar-like performance to go with an interior that’s brimming with all the fine things money can buy.
Novitec’s latest aftermarket program is dedicated to the McLaren GT, and, in keeping with the company’s reputation as a tuner par excellence, owners are treated to an exterior touch-up, a new set of wheels, and an engine upgrade that successfully dials up the GT’s power and performance capabilities. This is a McLaren GT that’s tuned to the nines.
2020 McLaren 720S Le Mans
The 2020 McLaren 720S Le Mans is a limited-edition version of the company’s mid-range supercar. It was created to celebrate 25 years since McLaren won the 24 Hours of Le Mans with the F1 GTR. We could say that the 720S Le Mans is some sort of spiritual successor to the 650S Le Mans, which was launched in 2015 to celebrate 20 years since the company’s win on Circuit de la Sarthe. Limited to only 50 units, the 2020 720S Le Mans comes with unique features inside and out, and it’s powered by the same V-8 engine as the standard model.
2019 McLaren 765LT
The 2021 McLaren 765LT is the range-topping version of the company’s Super Series family, built around the 720S core model. Essentially a successor to the 675LT, the 2021 765LT is yet another tribute to the McLaren F1 GTR Longtail, a race car fitted with an elongated body for enhanced aerodynamics. The 2021 765LT shares many components with the familiar 720S, but it features a more aggressive aero package with carbon-fiber components, a race-focused interior, and a more powerful engine. As the name suggests, the V-8 engine cranks out 765 PS, which converts to 755 horsepower, 45 more than the regular 720S.
2019 Graffiti-Drawn McLaren 720S by Alec Monopoly
The McLaren 720S is in attendance at the Art Basel show in Miami, Florida. Whereas the presence of a supercar of the stature of the 720S would usually draw a crowd in it of itself, this particular 720S stands out for one specific reason: it’s wearing the artwork of renowned New York-based graffiti artist Alec Monopoly.
The 33-year old artist took the task of turning the 720S into a full-blown art car — art cars are an Art Basel Miami tradition — that speaks to his famous style of street art. The McLaren 720S isn’t just wearing Monopoly’s street art; it’s also been fitted with aftermarket components courtesy of 1016 Industries, including what might as well be the fanciest set of wheels we’ve seen in a long time.
2021 McLaren 620R
The 2021 McLaren 620R is the range-topping version of the Sports Series, the company’s entry-level lineage of sports cars. Essentially a road-legal version of the 570S GT4, the 2021 620R slots above the 600LT. Design-wise, the 2021 620R is almost identical to the 570S GT4. It also features the same engine, but because it’s not restricted by racing regulations, the V-8 boasts more power.
Rated at 610 horsepower, the 2021 620R is the most powerful Sports Series vehicle ever created. It’s also the quickest, but it lags behind its siblings when it comes to top speed. With production limited to 350 units, the 2021 McLaren 620R costs almost $300,000. Let’s find out more about this supercar in the review below.
2019 McLaren 720S Spider by Novitec
The McLaren 720S Spider is a certified supercar. It has the design proportions of a McLaren and it features a potent V-8 engine that can lay the smackdown on any car that gets in its way. It’s hard to imagine a car that already has 710 horsepower on tap to gain more power to smoke them fools, but that’s why the aftermarket world exists in the first place. It’s a place where a tuner like Novitec can take a McLaren 720 S and tinker with it to the extent that it now comes with enough power to put most of its rivals in their proper places. This is the world of automotive tuning inhabited by Novitec. Just when you thought that it can’t get any better for your McLaren 720S, the German tuner finds a way to make it happen.
2020 McLaren 600LT Spider Pikes Peak Collection
The McLaren Denver car dealership has commissioned McLaren Special Operation to build not one, not two, not three, but six special edition McLaren 600LT Spiders to celebrate America’s most famous hill climb event, the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. Each of the six special edition 600LT Spiders is dressed in an exclusive color to go with a smattering of interior embellishments. Special edition wheels are also part of the package, as is a commemorative plaque signifying each model’s inclusion in the “Pikes Peak Collection of 6.” The price tag for each of the six McLaren 600LT Spider Pikes Peak models that make up the collection have yet to be announced, but expect each one to cost significantly more than the 600LT Spider’s retail price of $256,000. Considering that we’re dealing with six ‘one-of-one’ versions here, a price closer to $300,000 for each of these models is realistic.
2019 McLaren 600LT by Novitec
With all the attention directed towards the McLaren 720S, it’s easy to forget that Woking’s lineup of exotics also includes the positively spicy McLaren 600LT. It wasn’t that long ago — just last year, in fact — when the 600LT was the darling of McLaren’s lineup. It’s taken a back seat to the 720S since then, but that hasn’t stopped a tuner like Novitec from giving the 600LT the attention it deserves. The German tuner known for its bonkers programs for anything exotic turned to the 600LT and gave it more power. It also added aerodynamic bits to the British supercar, enhancing the 600LT’s performance capabilities to such extent that it can give its big brother a run for its money. The whole kit doesn’t come cheap — nothing Novitec does counts as cheap — but if you’re willing to spend to give your McLaren 600LT an upgrade fit for its status, this new aftermarket program from Novitec is just what the doctor ordered.
2021 McLaren Hybrid Sports Car
McLaren is set to launch a new hybrid sports car in 2020. Shown here in a batch of spy shots, this vehicle will be the first electrified model that won’t be part of the ultimate series. So far, McLaren has launched two hybrid supercars: the P1, built between 2013 and 2015, and the Speedtail, produced in 2019. This new hybrid sports car could be part of either the Super Series or the Sports Series.
Since the prototype is based on the 720S, it’s easy to assume that the production model will replace the current Super Series. On the other hand, the 720S is only marginally bigger than the 570S, which is part of the Sports Series. McLaren CEO Mike Flewitt also said that the company’s first hybrid sports car will be the replacement for the Sports Series lineup, so this is a scenario we need to consider as well. To keep things a bit simpler, I’m going to go with Flewitt’s statement and treat this hybrid prototype as a replacement for the 570S.
2020 McLaren GT
The McLaren GT is the company’s first stand-alone grand touring sports car. A spiritual successor to the 570GT, which is based on the 570S, the GT is essentially a two-door sports car with enhanced luggage room. But it’s also grand tourer with a mid-engined layout, a significant departure from the traditional design with the engine in the front. McLaren describes the GT as the most practical mid-engined vehicle on the market.
The fourth new model in the McLaren Track25 business plan, the GT draws inspiration from other McLaren models design-wise, but it features a more straightforward, more luxurious interior created with grand touring customers in mind. Under the hood, it shares the 4.0-liter V-8 engine with the 720S, but output and performance are bit lower. But it’s the rear-mounted trunk that sets the GT apart by adding almost 15 cubic feet of luggage room atop the V-8 engine. Let’s find out more about that in the review below.
2019 McLaren 720S Spider
Introduced in December 2018, right between the auto shows in Los Angeles and Detroit, the 720S Spider replaces the 650S Spider in the lineup and enables McLaren to compete with the 488 Spider and Huracan Spyder. It’s the third member of the family, joining the coupe and the race-spec 720S GT3. The 720S Spider shares all exterior and interior features, as well as the drivetrain centered around the 4.0-liter V-8 engine, with the coupe model. Although it’s 108 pounds heavier than the coupe, the 720S Spider remains the lightest in its class with a dry weight of 2,937 pounds.
Update 03/11/2019: We’ve updated this review with fresh images of the 2019 McLaren 720S Spider taken during the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. Check them out in the gallery at the bottom of this page!
2019 McLaren 600LT Spider by MSO
This is the stunning McLaren 600LT Spider by MSO. It is an even better sorted out 600LT, which is a hard thing to achieve considering that McLaren hit a home run with it. Nevertheless, McLaren is really big on personalization. It does have a special division dedicated to it, and it is called McLaren Special Operations. The magicians that work there are responsible for some of the best McLaren cars of the past few years. Just look at these beauties:2019 McLaren 600LT by MSO 2018 McLaren 675LT MSO Gulf Racing Edition McLaren 720S Velocity MSO Special Edition
Obviously, people buying McLarens have enough dough to throw at their cars, and it is estimated that almost every McLaren sold has some MSO blood in it. Yet, the new one goes a bit further compared to any 600LT Spider we’ve ever seen. And, I’m not talking in terms of performance, either. After all, I told you eight amazing things about the 600LT some time ago. There, you could learn all astounding performance facts about it.
