My new Jet Fighter for the road smile McLaren 720S Performance

It goes like one, and the glass canopy makes me feel like I'm sitting in a jet fighter too!


Just some quick phone pics for now. I will take better ones when it's back from the detailer.



It actually looks a lot better in the metal than in pics, as you can't see many of the small aero details and hidden channels in pics.















Looks like it's on fire when the sun shines on it. The effect is far stronger in the metal, than on video.

Congratulations. Pictures simply don't do it justice and it's a HYPERCAR for supercar money.
No doubt a few posters will be along to ask how much discount you got and to tell you how much it's already depreciated but just ignore them and drive the hell out of it knowing it's one of the best and most exclusive supercars out there
Not every Tom, Dick, Harry or Jules has one lol

Yes he does and everyone tells him. He has a quite spectacular lack of self awareness.

Fair enough. Sorry to derail the thread OP - I've watched that video over five times now, stunning colour.

I watched it and thought I'd want the showroom doors to open wider if I was driving my brand new 720S out!

Congratulations OP - I remember you saying that you'd ordered one when we chatted at Motors by the Moat. Hope you're bringing this next year instead of the i8 wink

Fantastic; well done.

I would want to order mine in an understated colour, but that does look epic!

Funny I was just looking at the other thread with the cherry red spider thinking that car leaves me cold despite me loving the brand and ethos. Then along comes this.

Thanks guys smile Glad you like it.

I spent many hours in my garage with it the day I collected it biggrin Staring at it, moving it around, taking pics, playing with the car’s settings biggrin

The whole afternoon and much of the evening in fact. Wife wasn’t best pleased!

Honestly it’s even more stunning in the metal.
