The McLaren 720S Is A Supercar Like No Other

Review

It's at the edge of what a car can do, yet appears ridiculously easy to live with.

Judging from its looks and performance credentials, the McLaren 720S is a supercar in every sense of the word. Yet DriveTribe’s Henry Catchpole posited the almost absurd question when test-driving the new Mac – is it a true supercar? By his own admission, the question was a facetious one and doubtless asked to stir up some debate. Perhaps a better question to ask would have been: Is the 720S a supercar like no other with a blend of characteristics that puts it in a league of its own?

With dramatic styling (albeit with headlights some find highly offensive), the ability to reach 100 mph from standstill in just over 5 seconds and a cutting-edge chassis, the McLaren 720S is a supercar on par with the likes of the Ferrari 488 GTB.

But where it differs, and arguably stands alone, is the fact it combines these supercar traits with grand touring qualities, enabling owners to comfortably spend hours behind the wheel. The Audi R8 has long held the title as the consummate everyday supercar, but the McLaren 720S appears to have come along and stolen that away. Check out what, to our mind at least, is the best video review of the McLaren 720S to date, shot in glorious environs of the Gran Sasso d’Italia, and make up your own mind. Is the McLaren 720S a supercar without peer? Your comments, as always, are welcome.
