This is what happens when a McLaren 720S is unleashed

There aren’t a lot of roads in this world that’s as better to drive on than the German autobahn. We get to see why that is in this video featuring a McLaren 720S stretching its legs without having to worry about breaking any speed limits. The video doesn’t last long — it’s actually just a little over minute long — but it does paint a revealing picture of what the 720S is capable of.

Remember, this is a car that features a new 4.0-liter, twin-turbo, V-8 that pumps out 710 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque. Those numbers aren’t child’s play, folks. With that much power on tap, the 720S can blitz its way to 60 mph in just 2.7 seconds as it blasts off on a top speed run that maxes out at 212 mph. The video clearly shows what that looks like when the 720S is given the freedom to really reach for its potential. The piercing sound of the V-8 is only interrupted by the sight of all the surrounding turning into a blur.

You’re not going to get this kind of experience on other roads, but that’s what makes the German autobahn so special. Remember the saying that lions can only thrive in the jungle? Well, the same applies here. The McLaren 720S is the lion, and the German autobahn is its jungle.
