Tell me about the McLaren 720S’s tech
Like the 650S, the 720S rides on a set of crosslinked hydraulic dampers which can transfer high-pressure fluid laterally and longitudinally across the car to keep it level in the corners, stable under the brakes, but slackened off on bumpy roads for uncanny ride comfort. McLaren’s also integrated a Variable Drift Control mode into the traction safety net, which allows you to choose how much angle you want from your drift before the car saves you.
Then there’s the rotating instrument binnacle, which automatically retracts into a narrower display mode when you’re in Track Mode, to help you focus on the rapidly approaching apex. This is McLaren at its best, proving cutting edge go-faster tech and a sense of humour can go hand in hand.
