    It dont think the guys who are complaining about 650s road connection driven the car extensively yes

    Nor he adapted to brake steering McLaren uses. You need a lot of days to adapt to this system and to be convinced to brake much later than in any car you drove before. Even more days you need to find a non-accident 650S for less than 100.000 Euros. 🤞🏼

    The 650 is also not good enough even in the straigth line. The car just lacks road connection. I really felt I could never consider a 650 for myself. McLaren made a major (!) step forward with the 720. A completely different car.


    Re: 720s Spider Choice

    My god, that is one sexy car! Congrats hunterone! Also nice to be able to put a face to the name!
    Looking forward to reading your impressions and driving reports! :-)

    Re: 720s Spider Choice

    A beautiful car . This red suits the 720 so well . I remember how people criticized the design of the 720 when it came out, specially the front lights with it's big holes . Now , all praise it .

    Its a stunner optically and performance wise.


    Re: 720s Spider Choice

    Congratulations, hope to see it on the autobahn one day! Are those wheels the 12C ones? Didn't see them before on 720.

    Re: 720s Spider Choice

    Beautiful car.

    I had to smile at the tacky rack of t-shirts at the dealer; surely they make more from options on one sale than a year's worth of branded merchandise.


    Re: 720s Spider Choice

    Sensational car in every aspect ! Big congrats . I have to admit that with the current restrictions, the additional time for surfing the web, the recent 720S content on RT and falling prices of used cars, my fingers are getting nervous

    Re: 720s Spider Choice

    What an amazing ride !!! It looks very very good. Congrats and here’s to many happy miles in this beauty wink


    Re: 720s Spider Choice

    Thanks again wink

    First impressions: A spaceship in looks and in performance. This thing flies. Maybe to much for the road but i think i need to get used to it a little bit more. I love the torque from around 3k. You don’t need to wring the engine out like in the 600LT or 12C to get proper woot. The feel for the front axle/road is a little bit more muted than in the 12C and so im not 100% convinced right now about turn in grip and stability but that comes with time and miles. Maybe that has also to do with the tires (Corsa now) and once I get the MPSC2 on it we will see. Also the brake feel is different than in my former 12C and you need to use the pedal properly. Very happy with the sound department. Its loud also with closed back window, not too loud but imho louder than the 12C. And with the “sound” window in the back down I could not ask for more.

    I must also disagree with MKSGR that you can explore a car in 3-4 hours to its potential and understand it. In the 720s you need more time, live with it, get used to it but right now I am on my path and a very happy man smiley

    Happy driving Smiley The good thing with all the power at the rear axle is that the car feels like sportscars used to feel 20-30 years ago. You are constantly in alert mode - a little bit too much could be too much. This makes you aware of actually driving the car Smiley


    Re: 720s Spider Choice

    hunterone, my compliments for choosing this amazing car!

    IMO a top choice in its category. Technically excellent and the styling is unique among current supercars with its organic flowing.lines.

    Enjoy owning and driving  kiss

    Re: 720s Spider Choice

    Again and again, fantastic car!!
    Congrats for the fantastic combo 


    Re: 720s Spider Choice

    Thanks guys. 

    One recommendation when you go with the Performance equipment: Order also the Secondary Interior Components - Carbon Fibre Pack. Without it looks a little bit off as the black parts in the doors and around navigation screen doesn’t fit color wise to well. I ordered it now to retrofit. Also as a additional touch I ordered now the key upper cover in yellow to complement the interior stitching.


    Re: 720s Spider Choice

    +1 on the Secondary Interior Carbon Fibre Pack.  Aesthetically it makes a major positive difference in the interior.


    Re: 720s Spider Choice

    Some shots from a small get together with friends and drive through Austria (Tyrol, Salzburg, Styria, Carithia). 4 days 2k km with Malta Hochalmstraße, Nockalmstraße, Lesachtal, Kulmtal, Sölkpass, Obertauern, Katschberg, Hohe Tauern, Murtal to Name a view ....

    Got in touch with my car and it got also proper usage with some Snow, Rain, (very)dirty Roads but also many miles best tarmac. Now my 720s has 2600km and i got used to it more. It is a car you cant drive 10/10 on public roads but boy is it fun.

    Re: 720s Spider Choice

    Nice roads around Katschberg and Co, have been there a couple of times (mainly for skiing). Smiley

    Thanks for sharing. 

    How is traction on cold/wet roads? I assume you have Pirelli Corsa tires?
