In the world of supercars, the McLaren 720S stands out for its unparalleled performance and striking design. But at SpeedEFX, we believe there’s always room to push the boundaries of excellence. That’s exactly what we did with a recent project that rolled into our shop: a McLaren 720S that underwent a spectacular transformation, reinforcing its status as a pinnacle of automotive engineering and aesthetics.
A Full Carbon Fiber Makeover
The project commenced with a bold vision: to equip the McLaren 720S with a full carbon fiber bodykit, enhancing its aggressive stance and aerodynamic efficiency. Carbon fiber is renowned for its lightweight properties and strength, making it the ideal material for supercars where every kilogram matters.
The comprehensive bodykit included several key components designed to accentuate the McLaren’s already striking appearance:
- A sleek front lip for improved downforce and front-end aesthetics
- Aggressive sideskirts to streamline the silhouette
- Front headlight housings that blend seamlessly with the car’s sharp angles
- A dynamic rear wing, enhancing both form and function
- Front bumper vents for optimized airflow
- A meticulously designed rear diffuser for superior aerodynamic performance
Precision and Expertise
The installation of the carbon fiber bodykit was a testament to our team’s expertise and attention to detail. This process involved the full removal and disassembly of the front bumper, a task that requires precision to avoid damaging the intricate components of the 720S. Similarly, the removal of the rear wing was executed with the utmost care, ensuring that the new carbon fiber replacement would fit flawlessly and maintain the vehicle’s aerodynamic integrity.
A Shield for Every Piece
To safeguard the new carbon fiber components, we applied Paint Protection Film (PPF) to every piece. This step is crucial for preserving the pristine condition of the carbon fiber, protecting it from road debris, scratches, and the elements. PPF ensures that the McLaren’s enhanced aesthetics are maintained without compromising the material’s integrity or appearance.
Vossen Forged S21-01 Wheels
No transformation is complete without the perfect set of wheels. For this McLaren 720S, we chose Vossen Forged S21-01 wheels, known for their exceptional design and durability. These wheels complement the car’s aggressive lines and contribute to its overall performance. Using our touchless mount and balance machines, we equipped the McLaren with new tires, ensuring a smooth and precise fit without risking any damage to the wheels or the car itself.
