This image, posted briefly at Bloomberg and then promptly removed, shows a sneak peek of the new 720S.

McLaren, the supercar company based in Woking, England, has always been known for rejecting the traditional way of doing things. While it makes some consumers scoff it makes others excited for the future of the high-performance car industry. Let’s take a peek at the newest technology announcements featured on the McLaren 720S.

New Carbon Fiber Structure: The Monocage II.

The Monocage is stiff and rigid. It is constructed entirely from carbon fiber and allows for an advanced aerodynamic structure. It is much stronger than a traditional steel frame.

Unique Suspension With No Sway Bar

McLaren has replaced the sway bar, which gives stability during fast turns or road bumps. Instead, you now have a complex system of hydraulics that lifts the side of the car opposite the turn.

Other High-Performance Features

As it has been recently revealed, the new car will keep the McLaren standby turbo V8 engine. Only, this time it will have 4.0 liters which is an improvement from previous models. It will also have the trademark aerodynamic design, honed for less drag while turning and accelerating.

What are you looking forward to most about the cars and auto tech of 2018 and beyond? One thing is for sure, innovation is quick and new technology is going to be incredible.

This is my 71, I'm keeping her though!!!!!

Wish I still had mine and could afford this one.

Lot of rust on this one. Someone better be ready for a ton of work. I’d say this is closer to a 8-10k car in Florida.
