      Was it the headlights or just the whole exterior?

      2.77s to 60mph. That's outrageous traction for RWD.:eek: We'll see a 9s quarter eventually.

      Has a 918 ever trapped 146mph? For me that calculates to more like 800hp.

        This is genius! Simple and effective way to solve the problem.


        Mclaren North America brought down the 720s to the local Cars and Coffee meet yesterday. It looks amazing in person and sounded better than I had expected. Much easier to get in and out compared to every other Mclaren I've sat in (but still a bit of a struggle if you have big feet). This car didn't have the glass roof on the door (optional extra) and instead had Carbon Fiber in its place. Interior was a bit underwhelming but I think it may have more to do with the choice of the colour combination.

          Was it the strongest crowd magnet on the day?

          What I heard (in the friendship circle) is that the 720s has the lowest profit margins out of any McLaren. They're barely making money with this car taking into account the large investment McLaren has done for this car. It will now come down to how the company amortizes these technologies in other cars.

                ^Love the animated turn signal! The performance is seriously next level.

                Oh yeah, pulled the biggest crowd that day.

                Things you only see in Florida behavior....


                They've just begun to deliver the 720s in the states and already one is in the possession of a hit-and-run lowlife. Launch edition soros elite gray as well, sigh.

                  Is the description implying that you can knock someone down with your car, make a run for it and that is considered legal? :confused:

                  They've been changing the description all day it seems, so idk what they're trying to say. Probably would've been better to use a quote from the eye-witness.

                  Hit-and-runs are illegal nationwide under any circumstance.

                  Surely hope that low-life's license plate has been promptly given over to the authorities, and he will not just get away with this

                      looks like that 720hp figure is pretty conservative if it's making 698hp at the wheels!

                          McLaren 720S sold out into 2018

                          McLaren-720S-Sale-1-.

                          Surprise, surprise. The McLaren 720S is already proving to be a huge success for the British manufacturer, selling out into 2018.

                          Autocar reports that since the supercar’s debut five months ago at the Geneva Motor Show, over 1,500 orders have been placed forcing many buyers to wait until next year to take delivery. This comes despite the fact that McLarencommenced deliveries back in June, a remarkably fast turnaround from when the car was first shown to the public.

                          A number of buyers are said to be so eager to get their hands on the 720S that they’ve placed orders for two cars, one to be delivered as soon as possible and the second to be personalized through McLaren Special Operations.

                          A quick glance at the spec sheet reveals why buyers are so eager to purchase the new supercar. Rather than utilizing a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 like all other modern McLarens before it, the 720S has a 4.0-liter unit that delivers 710 hp and 568 lb-ft of torque, figures that comfortably upstage the Lamborghini Huracan Performante and Ferrari 488 GTB.
