It’s Very Hard To Find Something Wrong With The McLaren 720S Spider

The McLaren 720S Spider is one of the best open-top supercars you can buy if you can afford the $315,000 starting price, which can easily exceed the $400k mark with a few optional extras.

What you get in return is an extremely well-rounded supercar that goes like stink. The 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V8 that’s rated at 710 hp (720 PS / 530 kW) and 568 lb-ft (770 Nm) of torque and is matched to a 7-speed gearbox rockets it to 62 mph in 2.9 seconds and to 124 mph (200 km/h) in 7.9 seconds. Top speed is 212 mph (341 km/h), or 202 mph (325 km/h) with the roof down.

Since the peak output is available at high revs, drivers will have to constantly work out the engine to get the best out of it. And that’s not a bad thing, because it makes the 720S Spider very engaging. Moreover, despite the immense grip and superb cornering, McLaren has managed to achieve a great balance between stiffness and comfort in everyday driving. Sure, it’s obviously too fast for public roads, but you can definitely live with it thanks to the enhancements made over the 650S Spider it replaces.

As for the downsides, well, as hard as it may be to find something wrong with it, RoadShow points out that the stiff seatbacks make for an uncomfortable ride over longer journeys. The 720S Spider would need more storage spaces inside as well, but is there anything else to complain about? Watch following review in the video right below to find out.

    Downside? Its tires will still trap your extension cords and your hoses under them. There.

  • Bash

    lol, the color, there you go.

  • Mark Hawthorne

    The panda eyes. The front end in general. The noise from the V8. The infotainment. That’s four straight away.

  • Stephen G

    This is a car designed for racing not cruising The Silk Road. The clue in the article was “it’s obviously too fast for public roads” in case anybody missed it.

  • Mark Schaffer

    Another downside is polluting the environment we all are dependent on.

    Its ugly?
