Second-Generation McLaren Super Series To Debut At Geneva Motor Show

Reaching 124 mph in 7.8 seconds, McLaren’s new supercar can then brake to a standstill in just 4.6 seconds and 383 feet.


The second-generation McLaren Super Series, which will be unveiled on March 7 at the 87th Geneva International Motor Show, is set to redefine expectations of supercar capability with phenomenal stopping performance to equal its extreme acceleration. Reaching 124 mph in 7.8 seconds, McLaren’s new supercar can then brake to a standstill in just 4.6 seconds and 383 feet – 19 feet less than the 650S and almost on par with the legendary McLaren P1.

“As well as delivering the outstanding driver involvement and enjoyment for which the brand is renowned, McLaren’s new supercar will also excel in everyday driving,” explained McLaren Automotive Chief Test Driver, Chris Goodwin. “The extreme performance and dynamic prowess of the second-generation Super Series, honed by testing at the limits and beyond, provides the perfect foundation for it to be the most complete supercar across the full range of use.” McLaren has released a short film showing the car during dynamic testing, driven by Chris Goodwin.

The exceptional braking capabilities of the second-generation Super Series were perfected during the most rigorous development program of dynamic technologies ever undertaken by McLaren Automotive. Lighter, stiffer brake calipers, carbon-ceramic discs as standard and optimized brake pedal feel and modulation at the limit are key elements in delivering the incredible stopping power, with tire performance also critical.

Working in close co-operation with Pirelli, McLaren engineers developed a new, custom Pirelli P Zero Corsa tire for the second-generation Super Series that supports a 6 percent improvement in mechanical grip compared to the McLaren 650S. The Corsa tire is one of a range of Pirelli tires developed specifically for McLaren’s new supercar, all of which provide superb driver feedback as well as ensuring extreme levels of grip and braking performance.

Further details of the second-generation McLaren Super Series will be confirmed on March 7, when a full range of images will also be available.
