    Re: McLaren on a winning streak

    BjoernB:

    Was at Geneva and had a 2h tour and configuration of the 720S - WHAT a car ! They had 2 configuration rooms in the back and People where in and out the whole 2 hours we sat there. Sitting in both cars (White and orange - red was closed and only for MSO Display) it is by far the best feeling - comparing to the Performante and 812 , Aventador S etc

    At least in my book - anybody who is Shopping in this category it's a no brainer. Ferrari has years of waiting list already and the seats of the Performante suck big time and the Forget carbon doesn't look to fancy either. Another stunner was the Mercedes concept car and the Glickenhaus Close up.

    Full enthusiasm can only be unlocked after a great driving experience Smiley At least the previous generation of McLaren did not fully reach the nearly perfect drive-feel of a 488 or turbo s. I really hope this is different with the new model Smiley On paper, I agree, the 720s looks extremely convincing - however, cars are not made for paper but for the road...


    Re: McLaren on a winning streak

    I would not even Focus on numbers so much but as I said with the new Doors and the roofwindow and view backwards sidewards and front - it is CLEARLY the leader of good visibility for a supercar - and I sat in all competitors that day....

    new Cockpit was also the best amongst them - customization Level of what you can do with the Display (what you want in yr Display left side vs on the right side) is next Level !

    Downsize only Option pricing - you can go easily from 250k to 340k - Red Color as displayed alone was 9500 Euro.....

    I would ask what but you know I'm not into "old". Smiley If you can drive his LT and upcoming McLaren, I'm not worried. You're covered indeed. Btw: Your boss must be a generous person. I would never let someone drive my car(s). You know that saying about the wife and the car?! Smiley

    EnglishManInNY:

    I am liking it a lot more the more I see it. But the interior seems well below Ferrari levels. 

    The interior of the 720S is fantastic. Inside you feel like in a even more exotic car than the 488. The switches are also better quality. The driver oriented display is also great. I prefer the glassy carbon-fiber inside my 488 than the mat carbon in the 720S but still the Ferrari is in no way superior inside. I also sat in the 812 Superfast. Great interior but not superior to McLaren's. Can't go wrong with modern supercars. I like them all, both inside and out :)

    Re: McLaren on a winning streak

    I have to agree - in many cases I am botherd with the fact the GT models don't offer space for my 5 year old daughter - but then she likes to drive me me "alone" indecision


    Re: McLaren on a winning streak

    There would actually be a market for such family "trucks" with high performance options.

    My neighbor wanted to buy one from these guys:  http://www.thautomobile.de

    620 or 640 hp, I don't remember but cost was too high (with all the options, around 160k EUR).

    My neighbor has various sportscars but he doesn't keep them at his house anymore...because of the neighborhood and the limited space in his garage. Only his C63 Black Series is in the garage from time to time or his 997 Targa. His other toys he keeps hidden and even I don't know exactly what he has there (there is a Maserati and an older 911 but this is all I know).

    Just to have someone take yet another topic totally off topic... I got the opportunity to visit our lead investor's office the other day. He always have a few cars at home but keeps most in the unmarked industrial building beside his office.
