In the latest press release sent out by McLaren Automotive, the British supercar maker talks about the braking performance of the 2nd-Gen Super Series model.
McLaren has already revealed how quick the 650S successor is in a previous press release. This time, the focus is on braking performance. We already know, that the McLaren 720S can accelerate from 0-124 mph in 7.8 sec.
Well, braking is equally impressive. It decelerates from 124 mph to a standstill in just 4.6 sec. In this time, the supercar covers 117 meters. To put this in perspective, this kind of braking performance is on par with the mighty McLaren F1.
So what is the secret of this awesome stopping power?
Engineers have given the 720S upgraded brakes. This includes stiffer brake calipers and carbon ceramic brake rotors that are now standard fitment. Pedal feel has been greatly improved thanks to improved calipers.
McLaren does clarify that the braking performance figures were achieved with Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires. Nevertheless, the upcoming McLaren supercar is turning out to be one helluva package.
