On Monday, January 14th, McLaren Beverly Hills celebrated the launch of the new McLaren 720S Spider. The vehicle stretched its legs on a morning open-air drive throughout Beverly Hills, showcasing a sleek Supernova Silver body and luxe Vintage Tan interior. With Monday’s forecast hinting at impending rain, the 720S Spider’s drive along Rodeo conjured visions of a foggy London morning. A product of British engineering, the 720S Spider proves itself well-equipped for rainfall. The retractable hard top can be raised in a swift 11 seconds, at the touch of a button.
McLaren Beverly Hills welcomed the arrival of the 720S Spider with a private viewing of the vehicle at the McLaren Beverly Hills showroom. Guests received an intimate look at the Spider, while enjoying beverages by Macallan, hors d’oeuvres, live music and Venus Et Fleur floral arrangements. The 720S Spider is the most accomplished convertible supercar from McLaren, combining the thrill of open-air driving with unparalleled Super Series dynamic performance and sophistication. At the heart of the 720S Spider is a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 that produces 710hp and 568 lb ft of torque; 0-60mph takes only 2.8 seconds, while 0-124mph is reached in a lightning-fast 7.8 seconds.
In addition to its rapid acceleration and top speed of 212mph (202mph with the roof lowered), the 720S delivers outstanding driver engagement, with McLaren’s active chassis system, Proactive Chassis Control II. The retractable hard top of the 720S Spider is a completely new design with a one-piece, carbon fibre roof panel as standard. A glazed RHT option is available which features electrochromic glass that can switch rapidly between a transparent or tinted state at the touch of the button. Thanks to the transparent RHT, drivers can enjoy the vistas of an open-air drive while encapsulated in luxury- rain or shine. In addition to viewing the 720S Spider, guests also experienced an onsite McLaren x Belstaff pop-up, with the opportunity to shop the limited technical apparel collection, available at McLaren Beverly Hills.
The driver-inspired collection embodies the inherent characteristics of McLaren and Belstaff, creating a symphony of precision, engineering and authenticity. Garments are carefully crafted to offer a combination of lightness for easy movement, high level adaptability for moisture management and water resistance, as well as hidden design features for the everyday user needs.
