We explain why the latest supercar from McLaren’s state-of-the-art Woking factory was impressive enough to earn our most coveted accolade

McLaren's newest model – the McLaren 720S – is the latest supercar from Woking to get Autocar's five-star accolade, astonishing our team with its hypercar-baiting track performance, while surprising them with everyday levels of adaptability and usability that set new standards for the supercar class.

What’s really impressive is the fact the 720S is just the latest in a long line of McLarens to get Autocar’s five-star seal of approval – following a five-star road test for the 570S and a five-star first drive for the more refined 570GT

Autocar Editor Mark Tisshaw and Road Test Editor Matt Saunders take a look at the McLaren 720S and its predecessors to understand what makes them all so exceptional.
