2019 McLaren 720S – One-Mile Top Speed

June 11th, 2019

From Britain, with love. Lightweight and scary fast, the 2019 McLaren 720S uses optimum horsepower and innovative aerodynamic prowess to achieve mind-numbing top end speed.

With dihedral doors and a stunning aesthetic, the 720S is as beautiful as it is fast. A carbon-fiber monocoque tub make this a very stable supercar in spite of its vehicle weight of only 3,161-pounds.

The heart of this gorgeous mid-engine, rear-wheel drive roadster is a twin turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 capable of producing 710hp and 568 lb.-ft. of torque. Shifting duties are trusted to a paddle shifted 7-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission. Zero to sixty can be achieved in only 2.7-seconds and the 100 mph barrier can be broken in just 5.3-seconds. With typical McLaren Adaptive Suspension, the 720S is as equally adept at tackling a curvy canyon thoroughfare as running a low ET quarter-mile at the drag strip.

This is a bone-stock McLaren 720S, running on a day when weather conditions were absolutely ideal. Climb in, buckle up and hold on. This clip gives you a passenger seat view of the standing-mile.
