By now, we know a McLaren 720S will hit 60 mph in less than 3 seconds, we know that it can easily demolish the rival supercar like the Lambo Huracan in the straight line.
What about the half mile run though? This is where the hypercars like the Porsche 918 Spyder, McLaren P1, LaFerrari and even a Bugatti Veyron really come into their own.
Fortunately, Brooks from DragTimes took his 720S out and using launch control, he managed to cover the standing 1/2 mile in 15.8 seconds, crossing a 1/4 mile marker in 10.1 seconds.
While there is room for improvement in terms of the 1/4 mile performance – with the McLaren 720S undoubtedly being capable of running in a late 9s, the fact that it pulled off the 15.8 second 1/2 mile run in imperfect conditions is the extremely impressive.
To put it into perspective, the Porsche 918 Spyder will cover the half mile in around 15.6 seconds, while the original Bugatti Veyron, back when it came out, needed just over 16 seconds.
In other words, the is hypercar-quick. Isn’t that the ultimate compliment one could pay to the supercar?
