McLaren confirms 186 Australian cars involved in global recall

British supercar maker McLaren has confirmed 186 Australian cars are included in a global recall issued in April for a fire hazard. The 186 McLaren cars span 2017-2020 model year 720S coupe and spider, Senna, 570GT and GT models sold between 31 August 2016 and 29 March 2020. Included cars are susceptible to an increased risk of fire due to a noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) pad fitted to the fuel tank that can trap moisture, eventually leading to corrosion and leakage from the tank.

McLaren 720S v Porsche GT2 RS drag race - video

The McLaren 720S and Porsche 911 GT2 RS are two of the fastest supercars on the market right now – but which one is quicker in a straight line? A new video posted on YouTube by Motorsport Magazine aims to answer that question, pitting Britain against Germany in a winner-takes-all drag race. Power in the McLaren comes from a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 making 530kW of power and 770Nm of torque, while the Porsche makes 515kW and 750Nm from its twin-turbocharged 3.8-litre flat six.

McLaren 720S tops 320km/h on the autobahn - video

No McLaren is slow, but the 720S is comfortably the biggest, baddest 'mainstream' production car in the British brand's range. Naturally, it's well qualified for a flat-out run on the autobahn. With 527kW/770Nm on tap from its twin-turbo 3.8-litre V8, it'll hit 100km/h in 2.9 seconds, 200km/h in 7.8 seconds and keeps pulling to 343km/h if given enough room. There's not quite enough room for this driver to nudge its V-max, but they get pretty close, touching 320km/h at one point.
