Up Close With The McLaren 720S
The McLaren 720S was just unveiled a month ago in Geneva, but we got to spend some time up close and personal with one over the weekend.
There was a ton of eye candy at the Festivals Of Speed in St. Petersburg, FL on Sunday, including a new McLaren 720S, which fought for attention. With a La Ferrari, a Veyron Grand Sport, and even a rare Porsche 959 on hand, standing out was a difficult task, yet the 720S was up for it.
The McLaren 720S just debuted in Geneva a month ago and you can read all about it here. It is, of course, a technical marvel with impressive horsepower, braking, and acceleration figures, but that only tells part of the story. How it looks in person is just as important, if not more. Luckily, the 720S presents beautifully in the flesh; its body is sleek and clean, and although it has a ton of vents for cooling and airflow, they aren't garish or incongruous with the rest of the design.
It's a rather larger car, too, by supercar standards. The 720S appears to dwarf other cars in the McLaren stable, like the 570S and 650S. From nose to tail, along that long body, the lines and curves just flow effortlessly. Overall, it is a visually stunning car.
