Wow, 90k in options, Thats more then a fully loaded M3 with every option available, Wonder what all the options were, Not like there worth more then an M3, I think that price JUST for options, Is just ridiculous, And im sure there were more too, Prolly mostly carbon fiber stuff.

But either way it looks good in blue, Still not sure how i feel on the looks, Seen better, But seen worse to.

But i have to admit, That mountain road looks Amazing! It looks straight out of a video game, Its astonishing.

 

User avatar

saxy  3m ago

Expensive options on a 488gtb can easily cost that much as well. I just saw one of these yesterday in orange + black. It sure is impressive, but unless I’m trying to go racing I can’t see why id need to get a 720s over a 570s. If it were for showing off, then I’d get something else.


User avatar

MikaCoulthard  3m ago

Yes!


User avatar

BR2+  3m ago @saxy

Still, The options alone are more then a fantastic car, Which is plain stupid, No amount of options is worth a fully done M3, And the 488 is even worse, starts at 270k, yet with all the options available, its around 425k, And that's insane a full GT3 for that money, And like the 720 it's mostly carbon stuff that won't even do anything but save a bit of weight, Pagani and Bugatti are prolly the worst of all year there expensive, but literally every option fitted fully done is more then your above average house..


User avatar

saxy  3m ago @BR2+

I agree but with some manufacturers like pagani and what not, things are so custom, everything has to be specially made, which MUST cost a lot more for the effort. Other options like a 50k Brietling clock is just for the stupidly rich for bragging rights. Where you’d think brand name expensive cars should come with more things, it actually could be the opposite. A cheap holiday inn comes with free breakfast but a luxury 5 star hotel charges $25 for it.

0-200 kmh (0-124mph) is actually 7.8 seconds . And for the Ferrari pista 0-124 mph is 7.6 seconds .

 

User avatar

Freakz  5m ago

We take the quickest time it has achieved, validated by a test. 7.8 sec is McLaren's official statistic, but as you probably know real world results have been even better (since McLarens' actually produce more power than what is stated on their official website).

A German magazine got a 7.1 sec in 0-200 km/h (so we use this):
https://www.flickr.com/photos/dedethecollector/37474900112/in/album-72157689118575056/

User avatar

Chanante  5m ago

One question of this car. Many people said that 720S does 800ps but Mclaren declares 720 ps and in homologation an engine can make 95% to 105% of the declared power but 800 ps is more than a 110%. For example 488 in Sport Auto test maked 700ps and it is a little bit less than a 105%. It is legal? Why Mclaren don´t said that 720S makes 750 ps?

 

User avatar

Tyrone1  5m ago

Sorry has there actually been a measured case of 800hp at the crank? Or is that just a guess based off of dyno results?
If not then that is the reason why they can get away with lying about the horsepower i guess.


User avatar

Fastedee  5m ago @Tyrone1

Guess based off 697 whp.


User avatar

Tyrone1  4m ago @Fastedee

Yeah thought so. Its probably more reasonable to assume that the 720s is highly efficient rather than grossly underrated. It probably makes around 750hp with minimal losses but it doesnt make 800.


User avatar

manone  4m ago @Tyrone1

no. you can't make a drivetrain 50hp more efficient than other
top cars.


User avatar

Tyrone1  4m ago @manone

Maybe not 50, but is it so far-fetched to believe they've made a highly efficient engine instead of automatically assuming they are lying by using the "15 percent" drivetrain loss rule of thumb?
Rule of thumb which (as the name suggests) varies from car to car quite considerably in fact.


User avatar

Dynomight  4m ago @Tyrone1

Absoluteely


User avatar

manone  4m ago @Tyrone1

what do you mean with "highly efficient engine"?
engine efficiency is roughly defined as the ratio between the power and the
heat absorbed.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Engine_efficiency
an engine being more efficient than another means that this
ratio is bigger.
from what we see, it is evident that, say compared to what
stated by mclaren, engine power is noticeably higher than
720+5%, but no information on heat absorbed. why are you so concerned about efficiency and engne heat absorbed,
anyways?


User avatar

Tyrone1  4m ago @manone

By efficient i meant drivetrain losses. Minimal losses between the crank and the wheels via maybe different materials, smaller tyres etc... I'm no car mechanic obviously, but Surely if Mclaren was doing something illegal by understating the power by that much, homologation laws would have caught them out no? Im just trying to think of an explanation other than "Mclaren lied".


User avatar

manone  4m ago @Tyrone1

i am not sure, but i think homologation laws have nothing to do with manufacturer's declared power and effective vehicle
power. Moreover, cars used for homologations are not
random samples taken from dealers' network.
I think maclaren, unlike ferrari, decided to
up their ethics to the german manufacturers' standards:
BMW, M-B, Porsche, VW have been producing
TURBOCHARGED engines cars with much higher power
than the official figures, making appear proper competitors
with correct power figures like being underpowered lemons. They have being doing this for at least 2 decades now, to the point milions of idiots around
the world started believing germans were employing
physics-defying technology in their cars, which is the same
thing happening with mclaren now.


User avatar

DrDuke  4m ago @manone

The simplest and most logic explanation to this topic is: the dyno runs are inacccurate.


User avatar

manone  4m ago @DrDuke

maybe, but then it remains totally unexplained how 720 S
accelerates exactly like an 800hp (700whp)-1430kg car, in spite of having just 720hp.


User avatar

BR2+  4m ago @DrDuke

So far all but a few dyno tests, have have over 700bhp, the lowest I no of is 689bhp n highest of 719hp, and those are all in different dynos, so this car is making around 832bhp real power, so they are lying out there asses, it's not bad for a consumer's stand point, but it's certainly not a good quality for a company to be honest in order to look better or faster then it really is IMO.


User avatar

DrDuke  4m ago @manone

up to 120-140km/h its all about traction, power/weight and weight after that drag and power gets significant.


User avatar

DrDuke  4m ago @BR2+

The best dynos have an inaccuracy of 2%. I don't know how much worse the worst are but I think somewhere between 5-10%. If you ask around in the scene then you will learn there are some dynos that always provide too high numbers.

And this tuning would be a total lie:
http://www.evo.co.uk/news/21011/tuner-upgrade-takes-mclaren-720s-close-to-800bhp


User avatar

manone  4m ago @DrDuke

i meant roll acceleration races. as it seems, from the videos posted, from 100kmh onwards the acceleration is clearly not
explainable with "only" 720hp, nor its drag is any different from its peers given its max speed.


User avatar

Monolith29  4m ago @DrDuke

with dyno's all we can do is gather all the different dyno results of a stock car, this case 720s and average them out to get the closest to its real power. i say this due to all the variables between dyno's - even air temp, humidity, elevation, the fuel used ect ect. my best guess is about 735-755hp, ive no proof its just a guesstimate based on others info and different dyno results

720s wont win. It may be faster on smaller, more handling based tracks but come on. It wont beat the P1 on a proper fast race track. Expectations for this car are just through the roof. People are expecting it to beat everything.


User avatar

TheMeenoBuffalo  4m ago @Tyrone1

I bet the 720S would have beat the P1 if it had Trofeo Rs.


User avatar

Tyrone1  4m ago @TheMeenoBuffalo

Neither have the trofeo, so its fair.
Power is power. I dont care how much the 720s REALLY has, it is down on both Horsepower and Torque, considerably.
The fact is that the P1 will walk the 720s on the straights. 720s compensates a little in the corners but its not enough on a proper race track.


User avatar

TheMeenoBuffalo  4m ago @Tyrone1

The P1 is not that much faster in the straights, quarter mile times and trap speeds are almost identical.

marcoppi  5m ago

hi guys, a question for someone more clever than me ;-)
how is it possible for the 720s to be so close in chrono in almost all circuits to the lambo performante while on the nordschleife the 720 takes almost 20 seconds from the performante ?
isnt it too much ? is it a matter of pilot/driver ? maybe mclaren should perform an official test ?
time differences are so close even with the 918 in many tracks that 20 seconds seemed to me really too much in the nordschleife !
very best .. and thank for any reply

You can't compare a Factory professional driver with a magazine driver. And GT2 RS is really fast and more track focused, 720S is great and a straight line monster but the GT2 destroy this car in a this track, is is a Porsche territory and have the best set up for make a better times. 76 Km/h in a 18m slalom its awesome in a street car.

Rematch will need to be done. Bad surface. 0-60mph in 5.1 seconds? I mean, a 2011 Challenger SRT8 392 with a manual transmission, 470bhp and a weight of over 4000lbs can do it in 4.5 seconds.

Reminds me of this guy on youtube who took his V12 Vantage to some bumpy wet English road, floored it and got a 5.9 0-60. Only that car only does it in 4.2 anyhow. This is almost double the McLarens normal time. Even the Supercar Driver with a 10.9 quarter mile for the P1 aren't this bad.

I think a 720S can hit 0-62 mph in 3.2 secs on a normal road, 2.8 on a race track.

Actually on a normal road with launch control it is reliably in the 2.7-2.8 sec range, or 2.5-2.6 sec at a dragstrip with near ideal conditions. This is with 93 octane pump gas and the new Corsa tires.

-2020 Roadster promises the same boring stuff. Straight line speed, fancy trendy design and nothing more. Well, not enough for me if you ask me, because the price will be huge, positive.

This car has such a tremendous straight line acceleration that it is insane...It also must have great drivetrain, gearbox, gear ratios and it has to put power down really good. Then when we combine it with 800 HP/1450 KGS it may have that kind of acceleration capabilities.
