McLaren unveils twin-turbocharged V8

The UK OEM gives the knowledge and all the exclusive details behind the M480T engine

 

McLaren has dropped the new 720S at Geneva Motor Show this week housing the UK OEM’s M480T twin-turbocharged V8 engine. The 4.0-liter engine, which has 41% new part content compared to the 3.8-liter unit, generates a maximum of 720ps and 770Nm of torque.

Standstill to 100km/h (62mph) is said to take less than 3 seconds and just 5 seconds later the car has passed the 200km/h (124mph) mark on its way to a maximum speed of 341km/h (212mph).
With extremely high levels of efficiency, the 720S is said to deliver 10.7 liters/km combined fuel economy and CO2 emissions of just 249g/km in the NEDC.

Underpinning the construction of the new 720S, the architecture is based around a new carbon fiber ‘tub’ and upper structure, the McLaren Monocage II. This technology provides high levels of strength and rigidity in a lightweight structure. A range of aluminium alloys are also used extensively in the chassis, as well as for some body panels.
