On Monday 8th July this amazing 2018 McLaren 720S V8 breaker will be heading to auction over at our parent company Copart UK Limited.
Part of the McLaren Super Series, the 720S was first introduced into the market in 2017 where it received rave reviews among automotive experts. From new, the model features a twin turbocharged V8 engine which is described to deliver a “blistering pace”, a carbon fibre Monocage said to make the vehicle ‘’stronger and lighter” than ever before and a handful of theatrical flourishes to really give it that ‘supercar’ finish (TopGear, 2017).
The estimated retail value of this vehicle is £174,850 GB.

Can I purchase and repair this car?
This McLaren is a CAT B Breaker which means that it cannot be repaired and returned to the road, due to the extent of its damage. It can, however, be purchased and stripped of all its bolted parts, the perfect solution if you are looking for multiple parts to repair another vehicle, or simply looking to source great-value parts to sell on for a profit.
Why buy a Category B Car Breaker over sourcing the parts separately?
- Save time hunting the web for McLaren parts by sourcing them all from one vehicle.
- Save money over buying the parts new, or from various locations by purchasing a great-value CAT B and stripping it for the parts that you need.
- Feel assured that your parts are authentic and undamaged by pulling them directly out of the vehicle yourself.
Please note – Category B vehicles can only be dismantled of bolted parts; no cutting is allowed.
