• A stock McLaren 720S runs 9.7@147 in the 1/4 mile

      It was just a matter of time and winter weather. The McLaren 720S is not only matching the absurdly fast magazine test times but it is beating them. All it took was a bit of negative density altitude and the ATCO 1/4 mile dragstrip in New Jersey.

      Feel free to compare these slips to the 9.98 @ 141.1 pass from a stock 720S at PBIR (Palm Beach International Raceway) in Florida.

      Yes, weather and location have a huge impact on performance. Over one thousand feet of negative density altitude doesn't hurt.

      With drag rubber this can be shaved down further as well.
