    2018 McLaren 720s

    Just picked this up yesterday here in Arizona. The car is FAST. As fast as I expected the car to be, I was really caught off guard by the brutality of the speed. They've gone 9.7 and trapped as high as 149 in the 1/4 bone stock to give you an idea of how fast these things are. I'm not an exotic car kind of guy, but this car has been calling to me since it came out. I'll track it at tracks with sound restrictions where the Viper's are too loud.

    I watched a video several months ago that had the 720 racing several GTR's, with I believe the first starting at around 800whp. It ultimately took one with 1200whp to match the acceleration of the 720. Congrats and very envious.

    Congrats! Hands down the fastest and easiest car I've driven on a road course. That car turns a good driver into a driving God. In your hands it'll be lightning. The car that I drove was on the factory Corsas; not stickiest tire out there, but it did absolutely everything that I asked for and nothing that I didn't. Zero understeer... I even intentionally tried to invoke some but the car just turned in. It was, as the NASCAR boys would say, set up loose, which I love. And unlike so many rear-mid-engined cars, the tail steps out gently, gradually and is a cinch to control. With Trofeo's it must be pure magic. Actually, it's magic even on Corsas. Enjoy!

    Wow sounds promising! Yeah McLaren "saddles" the 720 with the Corsa's to keep the Senna lap times farther ahead. Just like what Porsche does with tires on the Turbo S to keep it slower than the GT3.
    I'm talking to Forgeline wanting them to build 18's, their engineer is going to work on it and let me know if it can be done. Then I can run Michelin slicks. If I have to go 19", then I'll run Pirelli slicks.

    Not even sure it would be an argument. That car is sickly impressive!

    Congrats, AZ! Bad ass whip man! I'm not a "supercar" guy either, but that car is my only other (attainable) bucket list car after the Viper. Un-attainable includes the Koenigsegg CCX 1:1. But anyway, delusions aside, congrats again! That car is GORGEOUS in white!
