McLaren 720S

The 720S is built on a rigid carbon-fiber structure that helps deliver a dry weight of just 1,283 kilograms (2,829 pounds), lighter than a Toyota Prius. Stuffed into that is a midmounted, twin-turbo V-8 with 710 horsepower and 568 foot-pounds of twist through a dual-clutch, seven-speed transmission. It's a 2.9-second rip to 100 kilometers per hour (62 mph), onto a top speed of 341 km/h, or 212 mph.
The McLaren 720S features McLaren's new M840T engine. Its a 4.0-litre (3994 cc) masterpiece.
A Drift mode is offered in addition to Comfort, Sport, and Track settings. A touchscreen infotainment system is standard, as is a digital gauge cluster that hides away in the dashboard when in Track mode.
The 720S features hydraulically linked shock absorbers. These do the job of anti-roll bars, limiting the body roll during fast cornering. This and much more might be had for as little as US $288,000.
