Great lap, Wasnt sure if it was gonna beat the P1, I know its a few years older, But people prolly shaking there heads for Mc charging almost 2million for the P1 yet you can get a 720 for 300k with the same or better performance....

On another note, I would like to see more affirdable cars i these competitions, I mean can they really be drivers cars if only the 1% can afford them?..

I would love for the 720s to run wider sticker tyres.

The car is so computerized it doesnt need to, Literally all you do is press the gas and your in space, I dont mind 'Some' assistance when i ask, But i prefer to work for it, Its so much more enjoyable n rewarding, Same while on a track, But i personally would have gave it 275x325, And Pirelli has only 2 tyres with more grip.

Watching randy pobst video on motortrendondemand. He had to really work the car to find the limit. The car had a heavy mix of under steer and snap oversteer. He viewed the GT2 RS as a absolute breeze to drive with excellent balance.

The LL2 Class starts at $35,000 and ends at $65,000, A Normal Stinger strts at $33k, The Stinger GT starts at $41k, A GT 5.0 PP2 starts at $44,850 to $49,050 Depending on trim level, Not sure of the optional extras such as other performance parts though right now, But either way, 40k Usd, Isnt what i would call affordable in todays world for most average joes.

Most cars you really have to work to find the limit, Even in the most easy to use cars, But even a limit, May not even be its limit, its mostly the drivers limit, Or how far he is willing to push it, No lap is worth ones life, But pushing 720bhp to extremes is no easy task.
