I drove another members 720s today and it was great. Very fast, very smooth,very smart. With the windows down you could hear the turbos and some excitement, with the windows up, its almost like being in a mercedes the wind noise is that much reduced. Car was very stable at high speeds. The looks are great in person. There is nothing that doesn't rock on this car. For the guys who want a really fast car from the factory, this is the ticket. Very nice car and the technology with the this car is amazing. Mclaren is coming very fast towards other supercars with this model. I only see great things from them in the future.

I am a bit biased and still like my TT Huracan that I also drove today. To be, a TT Lambo is like being on some kind of heart beating drug- its really loud and burbles a lot, obnoxious looking, stupid fast and is one of the most exciting cars out there in my humble opinion.

I think you better get to the optometrist quick smart. Cataracts are bad news. Because you could not possibly think the front of a 720 looks good with perfect eyesight.

The black car look good, the eye sockets disappeared, the only issue was that the radiators were visible and they were silver eusa_wall.gif

The Russians also bought the «Lamborghini of Emendator», the cost of which amounted to 17 million rubles.

Black does look better with the eye socket disappearing. But if I'm paying $300k+, I do not want hear myself saying "not bad."

Honestly, in the right color it looks very good. Not as good as a Performante inmo but very good. And with some mods it could be insane. I drove a 675LT before and was unimpressed. The 720S blew my mind. Car is very comfortable. Easier to get in and out. I loved it. I look forward to Mclaren depreciation setting in.

Mac showcased the 720S in a very unique paint scheme (a gradation of dark cherry red to candy apple red in glossy metallic finish) at their VIP showroom in the Geneva show back in March. If that paint scheme cannot make the car looks good, nothing will and frankly, it didn't. I'll admit that if we look at certain parts of the car zoomed in, they all looked good. But the sum of its parts did not. It somewhat reminds me of those PShop pics that certain magazines did: they used eyes of a supermodel, the lips of another supermodel, the nose of a movie star etc... the idea being they picked the best-looking facial parts from some of the most beautiful women in the world to create the supposedly ultimate-looking woman and the results had always been disappointing; none ever looked good let alone being beautiful.

Drive-wise, I agree that it is comfortable; it is less quirky than the models before it (emphasis on the word "less" though as it's still somewhat quirky). It is undoubtedly fast, extremely fast in fact but it has no feel; at least to me. The sensation of speed is plenty but it still does not stir the soul. A super sports car that doesn't get me excited even after a spirited drive is not my idea of a fun car. That said, however, an used 720S on a $:performance ratio would likely be a great deal.

agreed,

black is the only colour i can stomach the car in.

and it's all due to the headlight's, everything else about it is perfectly fine.

Dark grey works as well. All the others are a mess I agree.

I would think just painting the eye sockets body color would help tremendously.

I think that will make it worse, it will further accentuate the cavernous gaps.

Honestly those eye sockets are such a stupid idea from a design POV it makes you burst out laughing when you look at them, the rest of the design is not too bad, the rear is a bit messy but with the right color combos and mix of materials can be fixed.

The other thing which stood out was the wheel design and sizing, once again from a aesthetics POV, the wheels seem too small with too much rubber the wheel gaps seem odd.

The overall design looks very futuristic something you might grow to like and appreciate, it looks much better than the 488 which kind of looks boring and uninspiring.

Incredible performance, and questionable design will make for great depreciation down the road.
