Drop-top supercars don’t get much better than the McLaren 720S Spider. Capable of hitting 62 miles per hour in just 2.9 seconds, the 720S can double that speed in another 4.7 seconds. It’s sleek design sets the McLaren apart as well. So what do you do if you want to spice up your 720S a bit? You take it to Novitec.
Novitec’s McLaren 720S Spider features forged carbon—a material made from carbon fiber. The addition gives the McLaren a naked carbon look that dresses it up quite a bit. The front splitter, blade, and side flaps as well as the side mirrors and headlights all feature this material. Carbon rocker panels and the side air intake covers step up the looks as well. In the rear, Novitec added a forged carbon wing, rear spoiler lip, rear facsia, diffuser, and diffuser fins. Novitec set all these changes on a set of 20- and 21-inch wheels from Vossen. The exhaust is custom made out of stainless steel or matte black. Novitec also offers three custom colors—Satin Black, Gloss Silver, and Gloss Gunmetal. Finally, you can also customize your wheel color with a whole spectrum of options.
Novitec’s changes go beyond the superficial as well. You can choose from three performance kits. The first level is primarily a software tune-up. The level 2 pack takes the twin-turbocharged V8 up to 806 horsepower and 647 lb-ft of torque. That translates into shaving off 0.2 seconds on the 0 to 62 time. Top speed is also bumped up from the stock 212 miles per hour to 214.9 miles per hour. You can also pick up an improved suspension kit that includes a new sport spring set and aluminum spacers.
With all that the McLaren 720S Spider already has to offer, it’s hard to imagine what else could be done to the supercar. Novitec shows that there’s still room to improve—and they do just that.
