Celebrate McLaren’s 60th Anniversary

Celebrate McLaren's 60th Anniversary

For the first time in Thailand, McLaren Bangkok presented the McLaren 750S to VIP clients and Thai media. The 750S, an outstanding example of automobile engineering, establishes a new standard as the lightest and most potent car in McLaren’s history of series production.
By arranging a celebration of McLaren’s 60th anniversary, McLaren Bangkok added yet another noteworthy feature to this occasion. The exhibition features the McLaren Millstone journey, which charts the company’s history from the beginning to its 60th year while showcasing its achievements in both automotive innovation and professional racing. The ultimate automobile and current quickest McLaren is on display at McLaren Bangkok for this special occasion. Only 106 McLaren Speedtails have ever been produced, and the cost in Thailand is almost 400 million baht.

About 30% of the 750S’s components are new or different, having been designed and manufactured after careful examination of the famed McLaren 720S.

The new 750S elevates a benchmark driving experience to new heights by combining advancements in weight-saving, powertrain performance, aerodynamics, and dynamic brilliance.

These changes ensure that the 750S offers higher downforce and an even better aerodynamic balance than the 720S, making it even more thrilling and engaging. They also enhance the car’s power, weight, and speed.

With a segment-best power-to-weight ratio of 587PS per tonne (for the Coupé, at its lightest dry weight), it outperforms its closest competitor by 22PS.

The new rear-wheel drive achieves astounding performance levels of 0-100 km/h in 2.8 seconds and 0-200 km/h in 7.2 seconds for the Coupé and 7.3 seconds for the Spider. It is powered by a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 petrol engine that now produces 750 PS and 800 Nm and is mated to a 7-speed transmission with revised ratios for optimized acceleration.

The 750S uses carbon fiber monocoque construction as a key component for low vehicle weight, making it not only 30 kg (DIN) less than the 720S but also dramatically lighter—at just 1,277 kg—than its nearest rival. Features like carbon fiber racing seats and the lightest wheels ever included as standard on a McLaren series-production car serve to emphasize this weight advantage even more.

The redesigned interior, which is even more driver-oriented, raises the bar for engagement and includes a McLaren first: a column-mounted instrument panel that is centered on the driver and is flanked by rocker switches. By using these switches to adjust Active Dynamic settings, it is possible to change the suspension and powertrain modes while still keeping both hands on the wheel.

Another new McLaren innovation, the McLaren Control Launcher (MCL), makes its debut on the 750S and adds still another layer to the driver’s interaction with the vehicle.

By storing a unique dynamic preference—their preferred combination of aero, handling, powertrain, and transmission settings—that can be instantly recalled with a push of the MCL button, MCL enables the driver to customize their McLaren driving experience. The button features the recognizable McLaren Speedmark.

redesigned features like the Apple CarPlay® standard, USB-C and USB-A for quick device charging, and the redesigned Central Information Screen, which has richer, even more detailed visuals to further improve the driving experience, will also be advantageous to drivers.

For improved definition and clarity, the Rear View and Surround View camera systems have also been enhanced. A new vehicle-lift system also elevates the front of the 750S in just four seconds as opposed to the 720S’s ten seconds.

A new central-exit exhaust structure inspired by the McLaren P1TM, which is acoustically calibrated to produce a distinct clear tone and abrupt crescendo at high engine speeds, enhances the physical and emotional connection between the driver and the car.

The newest version of McLaren’s renowned linked-hydraulic suspension, the PCC III, is introduced on the 750S to compliment this. This system uses innovative, lightweight springs and dampers with modified geometry, which improves responsiveness, feel, and agility.

The well-known McLaren steering now has sharpened electro-hydraulic assistance, with a quicker steering ratio and a new power-assistance pump for more refinement, adding to the dynamic experience. A track brake upgrade is an option for 750S customers who enjoy driving on the racetrack frequently.

With this update, which is based on the McLaren Senna system, you’ll get Formula 1-inspired integrated calliper cooling technology, ceramic discs, monobloc callipers, a new brake booster, and a vacuum pump.

When your car is the standard for so many drivers, you must carefully consider every aspect and put in a lot of effort to make improvements that raise the bar once more.

This is what we’ve achieved with the new 750S, and the lightweight V8 engine performance and exceptional dynamic capabilities work together to give a supercar driving experience that soars to new heights and creates absolutely incredible levels of emotional connection, according to Michael Leiters, CEO of McLaren Automotive.

The 750S Spider was also created with a focus on weight reduction. It has a Retractable Hard Top (RHT) that can be opened in less than 11 seconds at speeds up to 50 km/h, a rollover protection system, and a custom rear upper structure made of carbon fiber, but no additional reinforcement is required because the carbon fiber monocoque is so strong.

As a result, the Spider, even at its lightest dry weight of 1,326 kg, is segment-leading in terms of power to weight with 566 PS per tonne.

With a revised lower nose section that includes an expanded front splitter, smaller “eye socket” intakes that enclose the headlamps, new sill air intakes, and rear wheel arch vents, the 750S improves upon the styling of its predecessor. Rear aerodynamic changes include an extended and reworked rear deck that directs air into an eye-catching elevated and lengthened carbon fiber active rear wing that is positioned above the central-exit exhaust.

Headlight surrounds are now available in carbon fiber or body color as an option. The redesigned front bumper vents and rear bumper are both made of the same lightweight material as McLaren.

With features like a low scuttle, ultra-slim A-pillars, and glazed C-pillars on the Coupé, the carbon fiber monocoque architecture not only allows for nearly 360-degree view and increases natural light in the cabin, but on the Coupé, the V8 engine can even be seen from inside.

Beyond functionality and aesthetics, the 750S provides assurance thanks to a 3-year warranty.

In 2014, McLaren Bangkok opened for business in Thailand, offering a high-quality after-sales service facility on Bangkok’s Motorway Road that offers McLaren customers a one-stop shop for car maintenance from mechanics who have received specialized McLaren Automotive training.
