Introduced at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, this is a car that goes beyond sheer speed to deliver thrills, although its twin-turbo, 4.0 liter V-8 engine is certainly capable. The McLaren 720S gives drivers a choice of four driving modes. Feelin’ good about yourself? Choose the Comfort Mode. Feeling a little edgy? Select Sport Mode. Need to let off a little steam? Switch to the Track Mode. Are you really ready to have some fun? The McLaren 720S has a thrilling Drift Mode. These are almost video game style settings you can enjoy in first person.
This mid-engine, rear wheel drive masterpiece works in concert with a seven-speed transmission. The body features an innovative carbon fiber tub and distinctive top-hinged doors that actually do make it easier to enter and exit. The carbon fiber tub is said to save almost 40 lbs. from the original MonoCell construction. This lower weight and superb air management helps take a tick off the previous zero-60 time, moving it down to 2.8 seconds. The McLaren 720S takes just 7.8 seconds to reach 124 mph and an almost G-force like 21.4 seconds to hit 186 mph. McLaren says its top speed is 212 mph.
The McLaren 720S is full of thrills with more to come. You can also expect to see an open-top model in 2018. Strap in and hang on.
