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 McLaren 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.

Missing the last page

I must confess I'm more than slightly surprised that nobody apparently thought to compare them on the road.  A two or three hundred mile touring route would test for qualities that thrumming round a track all day wouldn't highlight.

Milking it?

Well done Autocar!

A truly comprehensive essay on a car that few people will ever see and fewer still will drive!

4 weeks! 4 instalments to compare cars that are way beyond the sphere of cognisance of most drivers; beautiful things however...

That is milking it with a vengeance!

Now, better that with a comparative 4-week test of the RR Mulligan (?) and its Bentley equivalent?

Waiting with baited breath ... Ball in your court Autocar.

Beauty in the Eye of......?

 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?
