Unveiled today at the Geneva Motor Show, McLaren presents its new 720S supercar. The ride is chock-full of innovative tech updates, as Dan Parry-Williams, director of engineering design, says, “We’re a bunch of tech geeks so you’d be surprised if we hadn’t been fiddling with the vehicle dynamics.”

According to McLaren engineers, the 720S' dynamics measurement system doesn’t just keep track of roughly every moving part, but it can also adjust them as needed, providing with a more personalized driving experience.

In terms of new sensors, the vehicle includes pressure transducers in the hydraulic suspension lines and accelerometers in the wheel hubs, awarding the car's computer with more than ample information on what each part is doing in the real world. The variable drift controller then allows the driver to select how far the 720S can maneuver sideways, before the computer takes over and limits oversteer. If this makes the car "too easy," or boring, for you to drive, you can simply turn the systems off.

From a design standpoint, the 720S rivals that of older models, boasting a noticeably streamlined body with limited sharp lines. Worthy of note, the windshield and windows here form a teardrop shape, somewhat similar to McLarne's P1. The double-skinned doors then hinge upward.

Under the hood you will find a 4-liter twin turbocharged V8 that pumps out an impressive 710 horsepower, allowing for 0 to 60 in 2.8 seconds.
