The 2019 McLaren 720S just may be the definition of “supercar”. Especially if your definition of a supercar is a sports car with more power than you may likely ever use. You see, the McLaren 720S is the fastest production car ever manufactured by the automaker. That’s pretty impressive when you consider McLaren’s long history in racing. What you’re getting with the 720S is impeccable design, extraordinary power, and an attention-getting, head-turning supercar that without question, will impress.
Strap Yourself In for a Ride of Your Life
It is likely you’ve never experienced the power and acceleration available under your right foot like that offered by the 2019 McLaren 720S. The 4-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine can reach a top speed of 212 mph. The engine produces an astounding 710 hp and 568 lb-ft of torque. The zero to 60 time is a blistering 2.5 seconds. Feel the need to hit the century mark quickly? The 720s has a zero to 100, pedal to the metal time of just 5.3 seconds.
There’s a few things to remember about all this power. The mid-engine design means this power is being produced right behind the Monocell II carbon fiber tub. This becomes part of the thrill of driving a McLaren. Its deep roar is part of the experience. You can actually hear the air being sucked into the turbochargers.
The speed and acceleration are not generated by power alone, but by McLaren’s almost obsessive attention to the power to weight ratio in the 720S. This McLaren weighs in at just 3,167 lbs, making it one of the leaner supercars available.
On the road or the track, the 720S provides a ride that shifts smooth and hugs the road. The 7-speed dual clutch transmission is a joy. An advanced Adaptive Road Suspension keeps the car firmly in balance and in place. McLaren’s Active Aero Flow discretely hides the rear spoiler until it is needed upon accelerating. It raises like an airbrake when making a quick stop after deployed.
An Interior that Feels as Fast as it Looks
The racing-inspired interior is cozy but offers surprising head and shoulder room. Driver and passenger are nestled in racing-inspired seats. Infotainment options are digitally available on a center console. The gauge cluster provides a wealth of important data on a bright, easy-to-read screen.
The real show-stopper in the interior of the 720S is that at the push of a button, the gauge cluster will tuck away when in track mode, revealing a secondary, straightforward display designed to minimize distractions when on the track.
There’s Beauty in all that Power
With all the talk of weight to power ratios, horsepower, torque, and amazing acceleration times, one might think the 720S is a combination of large scoops, vents, grilles, and spoilers. This too is an area where the 720S excels. It is classically and superbly styled. Aerodynamics are applied almost seamlessly on, around and under in creating a smooth, sleek appearance that is functional and stunning. The iconic dihedral doors and haunched rear hips make a statement that this is pure McLaren.
