Watch The McLaren 720S Warp Time And Space As It Hits 204 MPH

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past 18 months, you’ll know that the McLaren 720S is blisteringly fast. So fast that it can give much more expensive and powerful hypercars a run for their money.

One of the key reasons why the 720S is so fast lies under the skin. The mid-engine supercar has been outfitted with a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 which the car manufacturer says pumps out 710 hp and 568 lb-ft of torque.

That’s a lot of power, but repeated dyno tests have shown that McLaren was conservative when quoting horsepower and torque figures for the 720S. In fact, some tests have shown that it may have almost 800 hp at the crank, a figure that dwarfs the ones of its key rivals.

Due to the its insane grunt, it can accelerate at truly blistering speeds, as the owner of this blue example recently discovered.

After lining up the car, the driver pinned the throttle and 3.2 seconds later he was doing 100 km/h (62 mph). The 720S can reach this mark in less than 3 seconds, but this run was done without the aid of launch control.

From 100 km/h, the British supercar continues to accelerate at a frightening rate and after 7.9 seconds, the readout shows 200 km/h (124 mph). Just 18.2 seconds into the run and the McLaren hits 300 km/h (186 mph) and goes all the way up to 328 km/h (204 mph).

The Macca has an official top speed of 212 mph (341 km/h), and while it didn’t reach v-max on this occasion, it seemed to have plenty of steam left even as it accelerated to almost 330 km/h, so Woking’s figure seems very realistic.

    Also the way the car was still pulling after 300 kph seemed like it wasn’t even breaking a sweat. Insane.
