Someone dyno'ed a Ford GT, Pista and 720S all on the same dyno. accounting that the Ford engine wasn't "lying" about its power, the math predicts about 11% drive train loss for the DCT drive train. The Pista put down 642hp The 720S put down 700hp. account for drive train 11% loss, Pista is 721hp, and the 720s 786hp. That's just insane. No wonder the Mac is such a rocket ship. I have a hunch, the 765LT, is actually just the engine from the Senna, but they call it less power so that their Senna owners don't get upset.
"720S out-dragged by a VW" Ha means jackshit, here's some context for you, the ID.R on its record breaking Nurb lap maxed out at 270 km/h on straights in early stage of lap but could only manage 250 km/h on main straight towards the end and lost speed on the incline section before bridge whereas the 720S hit 318 km/h on main straight. Obviously it's gonna out accelerate the 720S for a short distance coz of low weight and AWD with instant torque but on a mile stretch the 720S will destroy it. The ID.R is a very capable track car that's got very limited range unlike ICE cars...
Agreed. That’s the thing about “electric prototype car” lap times and claiming to be superior over ICE cars. You can’t win any race if you can only do one lap, unless that’s a hill climb. A Honda Civic would easily destroy the IDR even in a 5 lap race.
in other news, the fat mermaid believes she has the firepower to defend herself and the rest of eu, only if you're going to show us that you've inherited some na_zi weapon from ww2 stacked under your bed which you never disclosed to anybody lol
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.
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?
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 marco
