A first look at the upcoming 2018 McLaren 720S

McLaren's all-new supercar may have just been inadvertently revealed just before the start of this year's Geneva International Motor Show. Supposedly called the 720S, the latest McLaren that will come out of Woking, United Kingdom gets a more striking design compared to the outgoing 650S.

First seen at Bloomberg's website (to which they have already taken the post down), the next-generation Super Series flagship gets the new dihedral doors. Not only does it provide easier ingress and egress, it gives the 720S a new sense of aggression.

The rear of the car also greatly differs from the current design theme of McLaren. It gets thinner, reshaped taillights, bigger diffuser and tweaked centrally-mounted exhaust pipes that exit through the bodywork.

Also seen is the red engine bay illumination which was already revealed several weeks ago when McLaren revealed new details about the M840T powertrain.

While official output ratings have yet to be posted, McLaren does name their cars after each model's power output. It is safe to assume that when the 720S has been officially revealed, it is capable of producing 720 PS from its 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8. 0 – 200 km/h can come in at a quick 7.8 seconds.

McLaren will be at the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show to reveal their all-new supercar.
