All Mclaren has to do in order to up the experience of the 720S is lose about 50 pounds worth of sound deadening and tune the engine to blow off hard like the P1. Iím sure they left this in the bag for the LT version and wanted the base car to be everyday usable. Iím also sure the LT version will be Chiron quick. 800+ HP, <3000 pounds, tire tech from the future (itís progressing as quickly as these cars)

Thank you for that, I will check one out, I lost interest in them after the R34, I had all the others before, R32 and R34 being my favorite.



That's crazy, I bet it sounds good LOL



it sounds angry

Thatís a good point, AMG figured out turbo sound by 2014. They do sound great.

same with my amg all stock and sounds like an animal! also I had full awe exhaust on my 12c and 650 and it sounded good.
720 is a great car, but I still think the perf edges it out IMO (better sound, better overall feel, belter looking, and hopefully better resale)
when the track version comes out it could be game over for the perf.. time will tell!

Considering Fikse's 720 made 691 hp at the wheels, looks like the 720 is already at 800+ hp at the crank ...

yes for sure, revving doesn't bring out the sound of the sport exhaust, driving around and on power there is a big difference, I heard the normal exhaust isn't even avail anymore on the 720S....

Would you say the exhaust note of the oem sport exhaust is worth the upgrade? Hard to tell from that video you made comparing them. In the video they sound almost identical...

Some people will love different exhaust noises and others wont. Iím a big fan of bypassed mufflers with controlled flaps. Best of both worlds for cars that are driven a lot. For pure weekend cars, put straight pipes on a twin turbo car and enjoy the whistling.

I questioned all of the McLaren cars looks at first when seeing images. The newer models you must see in person to truly appreciate the lines. Once you see it in person then you will love the lines of the car. Their is a true function to the lines. I honestly looked for months driving every car out there and ended up with the 570s. I am sorry but their is nothing that touches this car for performance and looks for the money (not to mention a 3 year warranty/unlimited miles). I have owned five Lambos and trust me it was very hard to leave the brand. But, again, nothing came close to the overall feel of the car. And, turn the traction off and this car is a beast of car car to throw around. The 720 grows on you more and more every time you see it. Each time you see it you can appreciate the lines more and more. I love every part of the car.

As for McLaren motor sound/exhaust note...all you need is to add an aftermarket exhaust. I did a Velocity exhaust and the car sounds just like a UGR tt or Heffner tt lambo. I love the turbo spooling. And for loud it is plenty loud and shoots flames...for me perfect and for others may be too loud. coming from a LP640 with a straight exhaust and no cats I honestly can say I like this sound better because of the turbos spooling. I have gotten a ton of compliments with many saying the best car they have ever heard.

Below is a video of my 570s - cold start...30 seconds in the car idles down and can hear the turbos at idle. Not the best video/sound quality but you get the idea of what the car would sound in person.

The next video is by iPhone and is not the best quality but you can hear the car. Racing 1/2 from a dig against a new Viper with 580 whp. A fun race!

Brooks, was that "stock" with a +125hp tune? Or did the Alpha tune and drag radials net you .1 seconds?
