Ahead of its reveal at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, McLaren has teased the second generation Super Series once again. This time though, the company has released two images revealing a foldable Driver display of the model, likely to be christened as the 720S. Previous teaser images revealed the active rear wing and engine details of the McLaren 720S.
Coming to the foldable driver display, the model will have two display modes, full Display and Slim Display. Under the Full Display mode, which will be set as default when the vehicle in unlocked, the cluster provides information on an upright TFT screen, the format of which changes according the driving modes. These driving modes include Comfort, Sport and Track modes.
The second mode, known as the Slim Display mode can be selected either manually with the touch of a button or would automatically deploy when linked to the active dynamics functionality. This display sees the TFT screen slide down to show the essential information laid out on a single strip. This mode, according to McLaren, is ideal when the vehicle is used on a track. McLaren has also revealed details about the infotainment system. The eight inch touchscreen unit will run applications and would also provide control of audio, media, and navigation as well as some quick-access keys.
Speaking on the occasion, Mark Vinnels, Executive Director – Product Development at McLaren Automotive, said, “The new McLaren Driver Interface is a matchless example of advanced driver engagement built around two separate high-definition screens; a Folding Driver Display and a Central Infotainment Touchscreen. The Folding Driver Display is revolutionary in offering both a choice of information shown and physical position, seamlessly complementing driver preferences while at the same time furnishing a glorious piece of engineering theatre.”
