Since its launch in 2017, the McLaren 720S has proved time and again how capable a supercar it is. We have already featured numerous videos of the car breaking performance records, winning drag races and losing control out of incompetent drivers’ hands and we will keep featuring new videos of the 720S as long as people keep posting them. Why? because we love this car.
In the latest video, Motorsport Magazine takes the car from a standstill to 300 km/h (186 mph) which unsurprisingly is achieved in no time. It all happens in a dramatic fashion – the driver puts the 720S into Launch Mode, waits for the boost to build and then speeds away. In less than 20 seconds the car propels to 304 km/h before the driver releases the throttle. The way it keeps pulling above 200 km/h is just stunning and seamless and the car hits 300 km/h with the same effort as most cars require to reach 100 km/h.
It’s the twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 that pumps out 710 horsepower and 770 Nm of torque and combined with just 3,128 pounds (1,419 kilograms) of kerb weight that allows the car to be such a monster on the road.
