    Does McLaren recommend an actual break in period for the engine?

    Not sure but I took it easy as when I started it was around 35 degrees.

    Congrats Joey

    Great spec too - Sandstone interior is amazing! What's the exterior - storm grey ?

    Mine is being built week 5, so it's getting closer. My thoughts on McLaren and 720S developed in parallel and are identical to yours.

    600 miles...if you don't want them to come back on you for warranty issues if they should arise.

    Technically, it's good to go as soon as you get it but better to play by the rules and be safe rather then sorry.

    I just got a text , Simon said come by at 600 miles, a quick oil change and they run it through the computers.
    We are prepping for Pebble Beach or The Formula 1 race in Canada.
    I didn't know the car had no gas cap, until I opened the flap.
    I then took my 66 E TYPE for a ride, the original super car!
    OMG, what 50 years can do..........I'm leaking gas in my middle triple SU.................

    Thanks Mayor as everyone else........I'm working on a cross country trip.
    I think if it works out we are going to Pebble beach.
    Looks like Ive got a 458 spider and a gullwing sls as well.
    Maybe just maybe we can get another car as well.
    The interior of this car is so special I love my color combo.
    The waterfall center console is just so unique.

    Joey:

    You should let everyone know where you are going. It might be fun to meet up with Fchatters.

    I like that idea by Mayor. If you come through Pittsburgh I’d meet up and drive a leg of your journey with you all in either the i8 or NSX.

    You have to hit Phoenix! We'll get together and maybe I'll have one of these rat boxes by then! :)

    Did you get a Launch car or did you order the luggage separately ?

    I was going to order some bespoke road trip leather luggage, figured it would be cheaper than buying through McLaren and probably better quality.

    That's some pretty cool swag!

    I just went on a drive with a buddy of mine who has a very cool 570 that has been tuned to 700hp, and he told me that McLaren won't even sell owners an oil filter. Part of the hobby for me is working on the cars. I know that there isn't even an engine lid on these cars, but seriously?

    Anyway...... isn't this a cool wrap...

    I never received anything more than my car. I did get luggage on delivery as my car is a LE.

    Joey, I saw my first 720s in the flesh today. What a spectacular car. Photos do not do it justice. It makes the McLaren F1 look pedestrian!

    Well, two other friends who have owned it all say the same after they picked up their 720s......You cannot describe it, you just drive it!
    Old Ford GT'S , Ferrari 275 GTB, Astons, Porsche , its all a blur.
    If you get the chance drive one, its 50 years into the future......
