Exclamation 720S vs P1 - TOP GEAR (It's Official. The 720S is The Greatest Supercar on Earth!)

We already know how insanely quick the HYPERCAR known as the P1 is right? Well, just .5 seconds slower but the 720S saves you what, $800,000!?!?!?!?

McLaren has developed a true LEGEND indeed...

Its pretty much perfect besides these issues:
1) Poor Reliability even for Supercar standards
2) Doesn’t Sound great
3) Doesn’t hold value

Design and Performance wise - it is truly amazing!

Value based on what? Prior models?

Yes McLarens don’t hold their values well at all compared to Ferrari and Lambo

Look at what you can pick up a slightly used 570s, 650S or MP 12C.

The 720s is a marvel but wayyyy above the levels of 99.9% of its drivers... and there enlies the base problems with virtually all supercars these days... they are simply too good and its become nothing but dick swinging these days. The moment cars went above the 120 mph trap level; it slowly started becoming redundant... any reasonable person can go and buy a 570s for fractions of the price and still have performance above their level.
