McLaren 720S P14

The first model of the second generation Super Series will make its debut at the Geneva Motor Show. Last week we shared the leaked photo of the new McLaren 720S P14 which showed the car ahead of its public debut. The styling of the headlights and side has changed quite a bit and you can even see that from the above picture of the 720S wearing camouflage.

The outgoing generation of the Super Series had quite a chassis. It provided outstanding handling and grip while having ride quality that is far above most other supercars.

McLaren 720S P14

McLaren is a very exclusive brand and they often show their cars to potential buyers before they display it to the public. Their debuts are often invite only, like when we were invited to see the unveiling of the P1 GTR at an exclusive event at Pebble Beach.

It should be no surprise that their new McLaren 720S (internal code P14) was shown to some potential buyers ahead of the reveal. What is a surprise is that a photo of the new high performance machine was posted on Instagram. McLaren is normally extremely clear on whether you are allowed to share any pictures.

The Porsche 911 R or 911 GT3 RS

Recently the Porsche 911 R made its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show. The rear engined sports car is lighter, has the same engine as the 911 GT3 RS and most importantly comes with a manual transmission. It is also a limited edition, so you won’t likely be parking next to another R at the grocery store.

With the same power plant as is found in the GT3 RS, just how do the two stack up? While a side by side road test will have to wait, here is how they stack up on paper.

The McLaren 570GT will make its world debut on March 1st at the Geneva Motor Show. The GT designation in the latest addition to the more affordable Sports Series tips us to the goal of the car. It is all about daily driving and weekend cruising.

As such more care was taken to ensure that the McLaren was more luxurious and easier to live with than the company’s past automobiles. Even though it is a softer car, from a strict performance stand point most other cars on the road won’t be able to keep up with the 570GT.
