McLaren 720S Leaked on Instagram

Will make its official debut in Geneva

McLaren intended to keep its new Super Series car under wraps until the Geneva Motor Show, but an image of the car has leaked online. Shown in this Instagram picture posted by user Lamborghiniks, the McLaren 720S (previously thought to be named P14) wears a sultry orange paintjob and looks even sleeker than its predecessor, the 650S.

The 720S sports a completely new grille and a steeply raked roof. We don't know much about the supercar yet, other than the information McLaren has teased leading up to the big reveal in Geneva. Earlier this month, McLaren showed off the car's brand new carbon fiber monocoque. The ultra-lightweight carbon fiber structure is said to be 40 pounds lighter as well as more rigid than that of the 650S.

Although we can't see it clearly in the photo, McLaren also revealed its 650S successor will feature a new active rear wing. The wing can adjust its position to increase aerodynamics, acting as an airbrake when extended to its most extreme angle. Thanks to the wing and a number of other improvements, the 720S will double the aerodynamic efficiency of its predecessor.

We'll learn much more in March when the new supercar hits the show floor in Geneva.
