In summary - it redefines what a Supercar is. Nothing comes close.

Well worth viewing this.

Yes, saw that over the weekend.

I’ve been telling myself the 650 is more than enough for me on the open road and even for my quarterly track outing. And that I didn’t like the big blank screens in the 720.

But I think this year’s annual bonus might already have a spend plan....

Great vid!

In the comments after, apparently the Porsche 'RS' has went about 0.02 quicker...fair enough but that 720 was a standard car on standard tyres....not a track focused limited edition.

Be interesting to see what the LT version brings to the table.

On that note it was surprising to see it was 3 secs quicker than the 675LT.

It will seem like an eternity until the 720 spider is in my price bracket...ranting

I see the 2018 purple 720s which is allegedly a lemon already up for sale again at this sort of level. I think the first youtube owner spent a touch under £280k less than 18 months ago! Mind boggling!!

Great to finally see a review of someone who can drive really getting a 720s by the scruff of the neck and showing its real breadth of ability - well done Jethro clap

- Satin Graphite Window Surrounds
- Gorilla glass door uppers

Thats a great spec and less than 18mths old...

With that mileage you can bet your ass it won't have any niggles as they will of been well discovered and sorted...fantastic buy for someone.

Having just spent 2 weeks driving a loan 720 whilst waiting for my 570 I understand what a bargain this is. Timing wrong for me.

Someone please pounce on this ...
