Watch McLaren's 720S' Speedometer As It Hits Top Speed

The McLaren 720S is one of the most powerful supercars in the world, so it's no surprise that it will continue being pushed to its limits.

In a video posted by L'argus, the 720S reaches 186 mph in precisely 20 seconds before it's pumped-up up to 212 mph and turned all the way down to 124 mph in 4.6 seconds. If that does not outline power, we don't know what will. With a starting price of $289, 578, the McLaren 720S poses as an enormous contestant for cars with such power, like the Ferrari 488 Pista and the Porsche 911.

A robust V8 engine that produces 720 horsepower and an ideal efficient mechanics form exterior contributes to the speeds achieved by this automobile. The 720S has, in the past, recorded quite spectacular times on several tracks.

Until 2017, all McLarens shared the same engine, a 3.8 liter V8 twin turbo engine. 720S however, goes down a different path in terms of its values of power and torque cranking up to 720 horsepower at 7,500 rpm. It is no wonder this ride still sits at the top. Being able to handle such power is just to show how advanced the science behind it is.

At 700 horsepower, the 720S is so fast that inexperienced drivers might find it hard to even see where they are going. But this is what gives others the desire to be behind this monster's wheel. On German circuit, the 720S reaches just 190 mph without struggle but it is not until the driver floors the pedal that this beast roars to life and nothing can stand in the way of this mechanical fury.

The 720S has been very aggressive in marking its territory and making a name for itself. This is a ride that people will be talking about for the next couple of years. This beast is built for speed and resilience, making it a formidable monster when it comes to the road but its perfect symmetrical curves make it a beauty to look at.
