Since the McLaren 720S was released, it has been growing in popularity with each passing day. Our friends at DragTimes recently got their hands on a new 720S to test it and see how it stacks up against the hype.

Epic Showdown: McLaren 720S vs Lamborghini Huracan

Shortly after Hurricane Irma passed his town, Brooks of DragTimes took the new English supercar out for a spin on the drag strip. Unfortunately, the settings were a bit unfavorable, but that didn't stop the car from exceeding expectations. Here is the breakdown of how the car performed: 0-60 in 2.8 seconds 1/4 mile 10.2 @ 144.8 mph 1/2 mile @ 174.04 mph Those are numbers that are comparable to the Porsche 918 Spyder and Bugatti Veyron. What's more? It's most definitely less expensive. Check out the video below to see the car's rapid acceleration for yourself.
