The McLaren 720S has been named an All-Star award winner by AUTOMOBILE, a leading automotive lifestyle brand and magazine. As the first model in the second-generation McLaren Super Series range, the 720S has been extensively praised for its blend of extreme performance, crafted luxury and unparalleled driver involvement.

'The McLaren 720s is the embodiment of what a modern-day supercar should be: blindingly fast, astonishingly capable at the track, easy to drive on the road and technologically advanced,' says AUTOMOBILE Editor-in-Chief, Mike Floyd. 'What McLaren has accomplished with its road-car efforts in such a short period of time is nothing short of amazing.'

The McLaren 720S debuted at the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show and offers the widest breadth of dynamic capability of any McLaren, from controlled comfort to extreme handling prowess. At the heart of the 720S is a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 that produces 710hp and 568 lb ft of torque;0-60mph takes only 2.8 seconds, while 0-124mph is reached in a blistering 7.8 seconds. In addition to its rapid acceleration and top speed of 212mph, the 720S delivers outstanding driver engagement, with a new generation of McLaren's active chassis system, Proactive Chassis Control II and double the aerodynamic efficiency of its Super Series predecessor.

Notes the AUTOMOBILE editorial team: 'The 720S is one of those exceedingly rare sporting machines that truly becomes one with its driver. You wear the car like a wet suit, and through that fine skin you feel every tickle of the road, easily sense the grip of the tires, instinctively grasp the approaching limit. The 720S is better than you are—and in turn wrings the best out of you. Few cars of such extreme capability are so reassuring to push hard.'
