McLaren 720S Track Pack: Pic of the Week

The Track Pack makes an impact wherever it goes, including on a desktop...



There can't have been many recent supercars that have divided opinion about how they look as much as the McLaren 720S. Some have loved it, some really haven't, and seldom has a car seemed as sensitive to spec as the second generation Super Series McLaren.

With the latest Track Pack, particularly in McLaren Orange (a solid colour that saves 4kg over metallic), it finally seems there's more consensus than ever on the 720S being a stunning car to look at. Having the vibrant paint set off with some carbon addenda, plus the fitment of the super lightweight forged wheels, gives the car even more attitude and presence than usual.

Combine that with the favourable light found during this week's photoshoot and you have a prime Pic of the Week contender. Well, we think so at least. Choose your resolution below and get downloading now!

What, if anything, has changed from the launch 720? IMO at launch it was very disappointing but this looks fantastic... biggrin

Nothing, in reality. I think it has come of age quite well (not that it's exactly an old design!)

QFT.


I recently saw my first 720S in the metal and was completely and totally turned around on the looks. I thought it was an iffy looking thing in pictures, but in person it's stunning.

Perhaps I am getting old and cantankerous, but I think the fascination with shooting cars from a worm's-eye view is just doing nothing for the proportions of some cars. Some cars (like any decent selfie-taker will tell you) should not really be shot from below.
