After two weeks, it's finally judgment day. Time to decide which of McLaren's two top models our road test team would rather own and drive every day.

Will it be the 720s - designed primarily for the road, but still every bit the supercar? Or will it be the Senna - built to smash lap times at the track, but still road-legal when it's time to drive home?


There's no question these are two exceptional cars, as our three previous videos have shown. We've raced them both from 0-100mph and back to 0. We've sent them both on flying laps of the Anglesey circuit to find out what a difference the Senna's copious aero upgrades make to track times. And we've thrown away the ear defenders to find out which one sounds the best when being driven at the limit.

In this final video of our four-part series, we deliver a final verdict on which car is best.

It's been great seeing two of my dream cars caned at a beautiful track. Pure automotive porn.

The marketing wisdom of making your core offering so distinctly second place to a limited-run special is questionable, but from engineering perpective, it's a triumph. And a very satisfying watch: we may no longer rule the waves, we do though appear to rule the track.

Had to go to YouTube to watch part 4, the wrong video attached again.

720S looks stunning on track. It may be the styling but the Senna looks on tip-toes on track, and you can see the understeer.

Why can't these fools put the correct video in the article?  It so clearly even says 'Part 2'.

 They may defy Physics and all that, but, you hardly call them pretty,so , would you drive one for what it does?, or for how it looks?
