DMC has been working on a subtle refinement for the british super sport car McLaren 720s for a while, and we saw pictures of the progress on their Instagram page @DMC_Luxury . But now the German tuner has posted a couple of teaser photos that hint for a STAGE 2 development. Introducing the DMC McLaren 720s “Rhein”.
The first revision that grabs our attention is the newly designed front bumper. While DMC’s soft kit (720s Velocita) had a decent front lip attached to the standard body, we find a whole replacement bumper on the Rhein Edition. Made of 100% Carbon Fiber, this part uses the original mounting points and ensures that you can revert your car back to original look at any time.
On the sides, we find a new pair of skirts that add downforce to keep the beast well placed on the road. Shaped in line with the original 720s design, these add on parts give form as well as function. Also prominent is the new set of alloys. Made from Forged Aluminum, the wheels come in dimensions of 9.5 x 20 at the front and 11 x 21 at the back. As we are used to from DMC, the Germans love using Pirelly tyres, in particular seen here with the format 245/30 ZR20 and 305/25 ZR21.
The rear features the same wing that we saw earlier, and it hasn’t lost any of its glory. In tradition of the German engineers, they developed a carbon copy of the McLaren’s base wing first, and then designed an integrated duck wing on top of it. Using the original mounting points as the original wing, the new spoiler can hence be installed without drilling any holes and without the need of using glue. And not stopping there, the McLaren’s Brake-Wing function still works, no errors will show when using DMC’s aerodynamic solution.
The performance package is a combination of a new exhaust, paired with a ECU modification. The muffler comes with with flaps, and is made of heat resisting stainless polished steel. You can choose to get it either with sports cats or hatless. The power mod will get you 755 HP / 555 KW, at 7300 s/min, and be prepared for a massive 780 NM torque, pushing you from 0-100 KM/h in a mere 2,8 seconds.
