Can someone explain how it is possible?

time for 0-100 mph is same for both cars

2a. 100kph -0 breaking distance is same too
2b. 70mph-0 breaking distance is bit better for 720S
2c. 200kph-0 breaking distance is comparable, however in favour of Senna

time for 0-100mph-0 is totally different.

OK. Different magazines, etc...but suuuuuch big difference?

Autocar tested the Senna vs 720S from 0-100mph-0 and these are the figures they got using launch control without roll-out. Clearly both cars got some wheelspin off the mark which is unavoidable unless you've got tyre warmers or smoke the tyres beforehand.

McLaren 720S McLaren Senna
0-30 1.60 sec 0-30 1.75 sec
0-60 2.98 sec 0-60 3.14 sec
0-100 5.53 sec 0-100 5.40 sec
100-0 4.13 sec 100-0 3.77 sec

So in the "real world" if you pulled up next to someone at the traffic lights and used launch control these are the type of figures you're going to get rather than some of the rubbish claims from other mags.
