Stock McLaren 720S runs 9.7 @ 147 MPH

November 20th, 2017

While we ran 9.9 @ 141 MPH in our McLaren 720S a few weeks ago, we knew the car would go quicker with some better weather and that just happened in a monster way at a private track rental at ATCO Raceway in New Jersey.   During a private rental an all stock McLaren 720s killed the 1/4 mile in just 9.7 seconds at over 147 MPH with multiple runs to backup the times.  Weather was perfect with 40 degree temps,  low humidity and a DA of -1100 feet.

With perfectly cool weather conditions come complications with regards to heating up cold tires on super cars as most don’t have the ability to do a proper burn out to heat them up.   Since warm/hot tires are essential to a great launch, this 720S owner used a set of tire heaters to keep the tires warm for his record breaking runs.

With all of the room in the 720S for storage there is enough space for the “720s Drag Pack” in the front bonnet which includes a generator, tires heaters, two jacks and more.

These times make the McLaren 720s a certified Hypercar killer taking down the likes of the 918 Spyder, McLaren P1, Ferrari LaFerrari and even the all mighty cars from Bugatti.  Take a look at the time slip data and video below!
