Starting at $288,845 USD the 720S looks like the bargain of the century, as you quickly realize that a million-dollar budget won’t necessarily net you a more capable car. In fact, even when fully optioned out, it remains less than a third of the price of most “entry-level” hypercars.
With such pedigree, the successor to the 650S gets to rub shoulders with some very elite company. The McLaren 720S employs a twin-turbocharged 4.0L V8 engine, which produces 710-horsepower @ 7,500 rpm and 568 lb-ft of torque @ 5,500 rpm.
The official top speed of the 720S is 212 mph (341 km/h), according to the official spec sheet, which also reveals the 0-62 and 0-124 mph (0-100 / 0-200 km/h) times of 2.9 and 7.8 seconds, respectively.
In this video, AutoTopNL pushes the limits of the McLaren 720S on the Autobahn, demonstrating its remarkable performance. The supercar’s 710 horsepower 4.0L Twin-Turbocharged V8 engine unleashes its full potential, propelling the car to an astonishing speed of 344 km/h (214 mph), surpassing its advertised top speed of 341 km/h (212 mph).
