He Says Get a 720S Without It

It’s easy to tell that Top Gear’s Chris Harris absolutely loves the McLaren 720S. He likes it better than the McLaren Senna and makes the case that it’s the supercar you should buy. He even says the 720S is “like my comfort food of supercars.” Recently, the Top Gear present managed to get a McLaren 720S with the new Track Pack installed on it. What did he do? He took it to a racetrack, specifically the Autodromo Do Algarve in Portugal.

While Chris Harris seems absolutely infatuated with the 720S, he was obviously less than impressed with the Track Pack’s additions to the car. He said, “The dynamic impression is nothing like the Manthey kit on the [Porsche] GT2RS.” Instead of opting for the Track Pack and the extra goodies found on the track car Harris drives in the video below, he says you’re much better off buying a standard 720S that’s “nearly new” and saving yourself a lot of money.

We have to agree with him. The Track Pack alone costs nearly £28,360 ($37,000), according to the video. That’s a lot of money. You could buy a whole other car for that amount. It obviously won’t be a supercar, but it could be your practical everyday car and then you have the 720S for the weekend. Just a thought.
