McLaren 720S - Wikipedia

The McLaren 720S has a top speed of 212 mph. It’s enough to set you back in the seat when you put the pedal to the floor, which is not recommended. The 720S is a 2 door rear-wheel-drive with two seats. It’s powered by a 4-liter V8 Bi-Turbo Gasoline engine. The engine cranks out 710 horsepower. This high-performance sports car can achieve a speed of 60 mph from a standstill in a mere 2.9 seconds. If that isn’t fast enough for you, push it a little harder and it will climb to 124 mph in just 7.8 seconds. The fuel consumption is remarkably moderate for such a powerful vehicle. The car averages 22 mpg combined highway and city driving. When you break it down it gets 14 mpg in the city and a very pleasant 31 on the highway.

4. 2019 McLaren 720S Spider

2019 McLaren 720S Spider

The 720 S Spider is a variant of the 720S. It achieves the same top speed of 212 mph. When the 2019 model was brand spanking new (not that long ago), the starting price was listed for $300,000. This iteration of the 720S is a 2-door rear-wheel-drive convertible style. It’s also a 2-seater. The engine is the same 4-liter rear-mid-mounted V8 Bi-Turbo gasoline engine. Car and Driver called it a “Zero Compromise Car and it’s not hard to see why. It’s nice that you can put the top down on a lovely summer evening. The Spider variant comes loaded with stylishness and the look of an aggressive sports car. You get everything with the Spider that you do with the 720S edition, plus the option for a top-down ride when the mood strikes you. This is one of McLaren’s top five fastest cars, but if you think 212 mph is fast, wait until you see the leaders.

3. 2013 McLaren P1

The 2013 McLaren P1 is the third-fastest car ever built by the automaker. It achieved a top speed of 217 mph. The P1 is equipped with a bespoke block casting in a KERS system with large turbos. The engine is a 3.8-liter V8 Bi-Turbo PHEV gasoline-powered. The style is a coupe, 2-door, rear-wheel-drive with 2 seats. The engine follows the McLaren tradition with its rear-mid mounting. This car cranks 727 bhp from the engine. It’s also equipped with an e-motor which generates 176.6 bhp. It’s loaded with extras such as a choice of driving modes. The hydraulic springing system lowers up to 50mm when the car is in race mode. The rear wing also deploys in this mode. The P1 is a performance-oriented vehicle but the engineers and design team didn’t leave out the niceties. Luxury features include a stereo with air conditioning, heated seats, and all of the other bells and whistles that one would expect from a high-end car.

2. 1995 McLaren F1 LM

1995 McLaren F1 LM

It’s a 2 door Coupe with a rear-wheel-drive and 3 seats. The supercar is powered by a 6.1-liter V12 gasoline engine. The engine cranks out a generous 671 horsepower. It placed first in the category of the most powerful cars from the 1990s era. The engine is a rear mid-mount. This model is the genius of Gordan Murray. The F1 LM is a celebratory model that was created to remember the 1995 LeMans Victory. There were only five of the LM variants of the F1 built. It’s one of the 1990s era fastest, rarest, and most expensive supercars. If you think this is a superfast sports car, there is one more McLaren that has the rest of them beat when it comes to speed.

1. 1994 McLaren F1

1994 McLaren F1

The fastest car ever made by McLaren is the 1994 F1. This model was clocked at a top speed of 240 mph. The 2-door coupe with 3 seats is a rear-wheel-drive with a rear mid-mounted 6.1-liter V12 gasoline engine. The massive motor cranks out 618 horsepower with 480 lb-ft of torque. This is the model that was one of just two F1 models modified after production to the specifications of the LM. It is one of the rare and most expensive McLaren vehicles ever made. It recently sold at auction for a price tag of $19.8 million to the winning bidder. This lightning-fast supercar doesn’t take it easy on the road and the fuel economy is terrible at a combined rating of 12.7 mpg combined with 19 mpg on the highway. For city driving, it averages just 7.7 mpg. Concerning acceleration, it’s not the quickest, but it does pretty well by moving from a standstill to 62 mph in just 3.2 seconds. The fuel tank holds 23.8 gallons and the average range for a full tank of gas is 300 miles. The 1994 McLaren F1 is a car that has gone down in the history books as one of the fastest vehicles in the supercar class for the 1990s.
