720S Fury: British open mid-motor with an individual carbon body kit
In 2011, following a prolonged absence, McLaren returning to the mid-motor sports car market with the MP4-12C, which became known simply as the 12C. This model, initially available as a coupé and subsequently also as a spider, instantly punched through against its Italian competitors. The same applies to the new successor to the 12C, the 720S – also available as both a coupé and a spider. The Russian specialists at TopCar Design have now developed an extensive, high-quality body kit for this powerful sportster, which clocks in at 720 hp and 770 Nm of torque. Its name, “Fury”, is certainly a fitting choice given the McLaren’s extreme, furious aesthetic since the refurb.
The kit comprises 50 components and the first finished specimen, a 720S Spider, features the even more exclusive Stealth Edition. All components are made from carbon fiber and, as TopCar refrained from adding a colored coating, the material’s gray fibrous structure comes to the fore, providing an awesome contrast to the dark-green paint job on the body. The nose has been fitted with a front skirt insert, a mount for the combined spotlight/air scoop, a multi-piece spoiler lip and a new front panel with gills to either side.
The side attachments are particularly extensive, reaching almost up to the beltline in places. The modifications to the rear include a diffuser, trims for the covers over the eight-cylinder engine and skirt insights, plus a rear wing with two striking fins – a reference to the TopCar logo, which depicts a shark. The forged TopCar Fury style rims measuring 9x20" and 11.5x21" and highperformance tires measuring 255/30ZR20 and 325/25ZR21 complement the new design perfectly.
The cockpit, which already featured carbon fiber elements ex-works, including on the steering wheel, has been given a full leather and Alcantara refit. The new elements are black and dark green, pairing perfectly with the car’s exterior. The carbon fiber additions to the door sills, which show the name “Fury” and the TopCar logo when the door is open, are a particular highlight.
While TopCar left the powertrain on the first show car untouched, they also offer performance enhancements upon request. In cooperation with its partner GTT, figures between 800 and 900 hp are perfectly achievable.
