This Is What 0-60 In 2 Seconds Flat Looks Like In A Tuned McLaren 720S

One could argue that if there’s any supercar that doesn’t need any more power in order to put down impressive acceleration times, it’s the McLaren 720S.

Even when stock, it’s one of the quickest cars in the world, both over a 1/4 mile, as well as once it gets up to speed thanks to its otherworldly aerodynamic properties. In fact, you need a hypercar just to keep up with it, as it’s been proven time and time again.

Still, there are those who feel that the 720S’ twin turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine could make use of even more power than the 710 HP (720 PS) and 568 lb-ft (769 Nm) it already produces.

This one for example, tuned by Wheels Boutique, puts down a staggering 943 HP to the wheels thanks to a Pure turbocharger upgrade, DME tune and custom Velocity exhaust. While we don’t have an exact figure for HP at the crank, we can easily guesstimate around 1,100 HP.

Thanks to the VBOX data, we know that in a straight line, this 720S managed to rocket from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 2.04 seconds. It then hit 100 mph (160 km/h) in 4.08 seconds, went from 60 to 130 mph (96-209 km/h) in 4.21 seconds, from 100 to 150 mph (160-241 km/h) in 4.12 seconds and covered the 1/4 mile in just 9.18 seconds at 156.64 mph (252 km/h).

In case you haven’t figured it out, this tuned 720S would absolutely blow the doors off a stock model, which is darn near impossible to do.

    So how about putting it up against a dragster, since neither can be driven like this on the street, which says that neither is a street car.

    What is the point of this obsession?

      Why couldn’t this be driven on the street?

    I have been attaining 86 dollars per hour from working an on-line work at home… My acquaintance shared with me exactly how she was averaging close to 4k per month by working a job she discovered online… I have been indeed impressed and chose to have a go at it… At present i feel so fortunate she revealed to me this, and will strongly recommend it to absolutely everyone to try it… This is what i do> 4OU.IR/Cou

    I’ve wondered how tire manufacturers have been able to keep up ever since supercars started posting low 3’s and 2’s.

  • Tydogg123 .

    So you’re claiming that you could build a car that would “outrun” this tuned 720S for less than $20k total??? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    • Rick Alexander

      It’s possible, especially if you’re doing the work yourself. By a used Civic for about 5 grand, slap a massive turbo on it for another 5 – 10 grand, purchase some bolt-on suspension upgrades to stop it from twisting to death and you’re golden!

  • Ok do it then.

  • Rick Alexander

    I hear ya, but that obviously isn’t the point. Firstly, if you can afford the entry fee for a 720S, then 20 large is a drop in the hat. Secondly, most that buy these cars are all about pissing contests. Unless you’re a racer, the difference between 2.8 and 2.04 seconds to 60mph is indiscernible to the average person. As an enthusiast though, I’m amazed that today’s cars are able to get from 0-60mph in less than 3 seconds. It wasn’t that long ago, that many thought that we’d never see a sub 4 second car on the street.

    • Six_Tymes

      the correct phrase is: “drop in the bucket” or in a. the hat reference is “at the drop of a hat” pertaining to time, not quantity.

      • Rick Alexander

        Actually no.”A drop in the hat” is a reference to something entertainers of old would understand (dating myself here). Back in the day, after someone finished entertaining the audience, or crowd, they would either throw down their hat or pass their hat around for tips. Hence the usage of the term.

    I’d imagine actually feeling that would be much more impressive.
