McLaren 720S vs Ferrari 488 GTB: British Premium Meets Italian Exotic!

By  | 

McLaren can be described as a brand that can hand Ferrari a direct challenge but this is with the exception of the latest 720S. Unlike how it is with the cars from Ferrari, the 720S isn’t tagged as an exotic due to its generous production count.

But even with that in mind, the 720S never backed off from an opportunity to compete against a high-flying icon like the Ferrari 488 GTB in a drag contest. So, which car is fastest?

Before we jump to the result, here are the numbers to get you in the mood. The 720S runs on a 4L twin-turbo V8 engine that can develop 710hp. The 488 GTB, on the other hand, is equipped with a 3.9L twin-turbo V8e engine that can do 660hp. Now, onto the race!
