    No, but I did get some lovely canine jerky freezer wrapped in dry ice

    9th grade son said “I can’t believe how fast it is!” He’s been in lots of really fast cars, 650, Huracan, Speciale, F40, Enzo,.... So it’s notably fast. I knew that, but he felt the shove. Like a jai alai cesta scooping you up and hurling you ahead. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Looks amazing - Saros is a different and modern looking color. Enjoy

    Your 720S looks wonderful in that color. Not a fan of black wheels but the total look with the dark roof and wheels is stunning to see. Thank you for sharing your experience and glad to hear you are able to spend some time with this special McLaren!!!

    Deposit should be refundable until your order is actually submitted when your dealer is told they have a slot and your order is next. In your case, probably not until late spring early summer for fall delivery.

    Mclaren apparently just learned the Ferrari business model.
    They should have used it from the beginning.

    As a "bottom feeder" ( I'll buy a car at the bottom of its depreciation curve) a car like this would scare the crap out of me.
    The complexity and thus maintenance costs will be staggering.
    Hats off to those that can buy a new one, sell it when the warranty runs out and not worry about depreciation.

    In my case that is so true, we agreed to anew book
    Me and my Mclaren 720s
    To be honest I'm driving it about 5,000 miles a year with a full report in the book
    Just nice people!

    Yep their events look incredible. They sent out an email a while back asking what events you'd be interested in so I pretty much checked all the boxes just to see what's up. The locations, routes, arrangements, etc are all top notch so hopefully I'll be able to find the time (and money :D) to do one of these some day. The drive in western Canada looks particularly good.

    I love the way I get treated at McLaren (like a valued customer), instead of dissed at Ferrari. As soon as my CS is sold..... I'm switching.

    I've owned lots of cars from many different classes

    Cheers to Mclaren!

    Thanks Scott.

    720 takes mind off all. No room, data processing to drive fast leaves no brain free for bs. Easy to drive, but goes so hard with such minimal effort you inhale things. I’ve had and driven lots of stupid fast cars. This thing is giggle factory. Lol. Buy one if you can.

    I received my 720S yesterday. I totally concur with Sfumato - it's just an absolutely awesome car.

    I love everything about it. The cockpit is just so beautifully done. Even the electronics are awesome in this car! It can be fast and nimble one minute and yet super comfortable on harsh road surfaces the next. It's just so incredibly well resolved. It's hard to believe THIS is the follow-up to the 650S. I really liked 650S but 720S is just in a whole different league.

    Well done McLaren!

    @Sfumato is your 720S at SEMA ? Saw one that looks identical with XPEL Stealth applied.

    I just put up my deposit for a 720S, December build date with arrival late January or early February. I'm crazy excited!
