Video: McLaren 720S 2017 review – is it a 488 GTB beater?


McLaren 720S

McLaren’s new Super Series model has more power and more tech, but is it more engaging and exciting than Italy’s top V8 supercar?

And? And it has lots of power; some 720hp (710bhp) from its 4.0-litre, twin-turbocharged V8 engine, which drives the rear wheels via a seven-speed gearbox.

The 720S is 90% new inside and out, with a brand-new carbonfibre passenger cell, revised hydraulic suspension and an engine that’s 200cc bigger and some 40% new inside.
