The McLaren 720S configurator has been launched meaning thousands of petrolheads will waste countless hours making a dream car they can’t actually afford.

Like me, people will gawk over hundreds of customisable options and a variety of trims. It’s taken me 30 minutes to create ‘my’ 720S Performance, which looks as menacing as it (probably) is to drive. But will I ever be able to afford it? Will I heck.

Those 30 minutes have been a waste of time.
