Over 700 horsepower (520 kW). Rear-wheel-drive. A mountain pass climbing high above the sea. This is either the recipe for disaster or the recipe for an incredibly memorable driving experience.
The McLaren 720S is testament to how fast the world of modern cars progresses. Just a few years ago, McLaren unveiled the P1 as the fastest car it had ever built. The 720S is faster.
Thanks to someone with a PhD, this car is able to put its phenomenal power down with remarkable efficiency, allowing the driver to explore the redline of 8 200 rpm, and live to tell the tale.
And, this car caused pandemonium everywhere we went, which means it probably looks pretty good, too.
