Who Wins: the new sales records in July

As for supercar manufacturers, British brand McLaren is relatively new to the industry,  having launched the 12C as the first fully-produced car in 2011. Despite the nascent age of a car supercar company, McLaren has become a valid choice even when compared to the likes of Ferrari and Lamborghini, presenting a range of attractive high-performance vehicles with stunning styling. 

In 2017, McLaren announced and began production of the McLaren 720S, a $300,000 purebred supercar with blazing speed and class-leading driving dynamics. At the time, it was just the fastest supercar at its price, and that alone made the 720S an instant hit as demand for the brand began to skyrocket. Today, 5 years after its original release, the model remains largely unchanged, but it is still considered one of the best vehicles in its segment, even after being beaten by a number of competitors. 

Based on information on Wapcar. my, perhaps it can be concluded that beyond the numbers, each supercar tends to stand out from the rest, especially when they come from different manufacturers. You won't find a Ferrari that drives like a Lambo or a Lambo that behaves like a Porsche. The same goes for McLaren and their 720S; it boasts a completely unique ride, agile and sure, even at breakneck speeds through tight corners, thanks to advanced mechanical technology developed by McLaren engineers themselves. 

S is standard with most McLarens, the 720S features a monocoque chassis based on an ultra-light carbon fiber tube called "MonoCage II" and that's it. an upgrade of `` MonoCage I` found in the McLaren P1 Supercar. The exact chassis is paired with Senna, Speedtail and Elva models, enough to show how good it is. In addition, the advanced chassis relies on McLaren's Proactive Chassis Control II active suspension. This premium suspension is equipped with an upward acceleration sensor and a downward pressure sensor, which work together to provide real-time feedback to the ECU 720S for the most suitable suspension settings. 

All of this makes the chassis tuning the best in the industry, and it's arguably McLaren's most appealing aspect in terms of overall handling. The 720S is designed for continuous operation even at high speeds and it does just that.

Mid-Engine Madness: We like the sound of the McLaren 720S engine and exhaust 

Right behind the 720S's two-seat cabin is a  4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, capable of producing 710 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque, mated to a transmission. seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. In ideal settings, it can accelerate from 0-60mph in just 2.6 seconds before hitting 100mph in 5.2 seconds, on the way to a top speed of 212mph. 

Not only is the 720S V8 engine extremely powerful,  it also has an extremely pleasing sound, becoming the music to the ears of any car enthusiast. With a dual exhaust system mounted above the rear fender, its divine airflow can easily reach the driver's hands as if right next to them, especially in the convertible version of the 720S.

The Mclaren 720S Is Gorgeous

McLarens are distinguished not only by their unparalleled driving dynamics but also by their extremely powerful, brand-unique and highly desirable exterior design. The 720S' sleek front has a slim bumper design without a noticeable grille or air intake; However, if you look closely, you'll see the air intakes in the black-painted headlamp configuration and another set just above the car's carbon fiber splitter. 

On the side, the 720S has a large air vent behind the front wheel arches, along with some elegant lines on the bodywork and another air intake that feeds to the rear. Finally, there's the most intricate and powerful corner in the entire car, the rear. Its domed fenders are joined by a power wing that sits above a pair of slender, slanted taillights and dual exhaust tips that spring comfortably between them. 

Inside, the McLaren 720S opts for a minimalist design and achieves that quite effectively. There's a vertically mounted central infotainment screen above the slim center console with a gear selector and a few other buttons. The most unique feature of the 720S's interior is the driver display, which comes in the form of a large configurable screen that displays real-time driving statistics and information. 

Also, when you turn off the 720S, the large screen folds itself into the dash and folds back when turned on. However, when you put the car in track mode, the digital gauge cluster also folds down to reveal a smaller screen that shows only important information about the road, such as where you are in gear. The 720S was a standard car when it was released, setting a supercar standard that many manufacturers could not achieve at the time. Even today, virtually unchanged, it is still one of the most attractive and most capable race cars at  $300,000  and is certainly a worthy purchase for those who are looking for a car.
