    Got up close with a 720 last week. No picture I have seen so far conveys the looks and the lights look s**t in photos but are very intricately detailed in the flesh. I did think the pop up dashboard is gimmicky but otherwise McLaren are getting better and better with each model.

    My colleague who drove the car in Italy says it redefines the term 'performance' and he has beeen around high end supercars for nearly 40 years.

    Is that - redefines the term 'performance' until the next supercar comes along and redefines it again?

    You can't use that kind of performance on the road (legally) so what's the point? If these cars aren't going to race (when was the last time McLaren were at Le Mans?) and are just going 'beat' the opposition with hyperthetical performance figures, then I'm afraid I've got less time for them than the likes or Porsche, Aston Martin, Ferrari, Chevrolet, Ford, Toyota and a host of others who do battle on the track rather than on the pages of car magazines. McLaren have slightluly lost the plot imo.

    And it looks rubbish. Just thought I'd add that

    Looks like an ugly Panther Solo (which is saying something!).
