Alright McLaren, you win, we give up. The things your latest supercar can do with “just” 710 HP are absurd. So far it’s beaten lots of challengers, but to smoke a 930 HP GT-R? That’s nuts.
In fact, the 720S is so fast, it might just be how The Hulk gets back to Earth to fight Thanos in next year’s “Avengers: Infinity War” movie, after the events of “Thor: Ragnarok”.
Marvell jokes aside, just a few days ago we saw the 720S defeat a 720 HP GT-R – and yes, the McLaren is lighter on its feet, but to do the same to a 930 HP example? That’s simply incredible!
Also, this isn’t a case of the 720S pulling ahead at the beginning, covering a 1/4 mile and then getting caught up by the Nissan at very high speeds. Nope: it smokes the GT-R from the get go and maintains its advantage for about 14 seconds before its opponent even thinks about starting to catch up.
Now the question is, if a 930 HP Nissan GT-R is no match, what will it take to outrun a 720S? Something with 1,000 or 1,200 HP? We have a feeling we might soon find out.
