Excellence Personified: the Joy of Driving a McLaren 720S

Ever since its introduction, the McLaren 720S has garnered near-universal praise. Featuring the body of a sleek fighter jet and the performance of an F1 racecar, the 720S is a testament to McLaren superiority in the automotive industry. Beneath the bodywork hides a monstrous 710-horsepower twin-turbo V8 engine which combined with world-class steering delivers an unbelievable driving experience.

The car manages to surpass most of its rivals by nearly every standard of comparison. In this blog, we’ll discuss why the McLaren 720S is driving excellence personified.


Unlike other convertible supercar models, the 720S Spider hardly suffers from performance loss. Both models house the same twin-turbo 4-liter V8 engine that produces 710 brake horsepower. The car goes from 0 to 60 in just 2.8 seconds. Even on uneven surfaces, the advanced suspension allows for a smooth drive with lightning-fast response time on the steering. Even on horrible road surfaces, the car maintains its balance and stability.

Since the car isn’t what you’d use to commute to work, it lacks an EPA certification. However, Car and Driver estimates that the 720S is capable of 15mpg in the city and 22mph on the highway. This too depends on how much time is spent pressing hard on the accelerator.


Most of the exterior for the 720S is built from carbon fiber which significantly reduces the weight while increasing passenger safety. The two-seat cabin interior is less impressive than its rivals from Lamborghini and Ferrari, but it makes it up with excellent visibility. Buyers can customize the cabin with various bespoke options and materials.

As far as the infotainment goes, there’s a 7-inch vertically-oriented touchscreen with features like multiple USB ports, an audio system, and Bluetooth. Performance-driven drivers can choose to install the optional track data recorder also known as the McLaren Track Telemetry to relive their favorite moments.

Safety and Warranty

Supercars like the 720S aren’t mass-produced which means that they never undergo a proper crash test. It also lacks the traditional driver-assistance technology but more than makes up for it with several useful features including a backup camera, front-end lift system, and front and rear parking sensors.

The standard mileage plan offered by McLaren has no mileage limits and goes up to 3 years. Extended coverage can go up to 12 years.

Both the performance and aesthetics of the 720S prove just how incredible of a supercar it is.
