It's hard to imagine wanting more out of a car as ballistically brilliant as the McLaren 720S. This is one of the finest road cars I've ever sampled, a beautiful tribute to McLaren's Formula One roots and a reminder that, even in this high-tech age, the driver's car is alive and well.
So while it might seem unnecessary for McLaren to offer an optional Track Pack for this stunning specimen of superlative supercar, the good news is that it doesn't alter the 720S' finesse. Instead, think of the Track Pack as a sort of value play -- yes, a $332,700 value play -- bundling race-friendly options into one convenient package, and for less money than ordering them all à la carte.
The Track Pack is a $28,000 option, available only on the 720S Performance specification. You get super-lightweight, 10-spoke alloy wheels. There's an active, carbon fiber rear spoiler and a sport exhaust. Remarkably, McLaren says this lighter hardware results in a 53-pound weight savings over a normal 720S Performance.
It hits 60 mph just as quickly as the coupe.
The drop-top variant is barely 100 pounds heavier than the coupe.
But it (probably) won't go 211 miles per hour.
We're pretty sure this one's the 600LT Spider.
It's more powerful, more capable and sports one of the most recognizable liveries in motorsport history.
A new race-focused Track Pack doesn't make the 720S any less enjoyable to drive on the street.
A new Track Pack doesn't change the character of McLaren's brilliant 720S.
With 710 horsepower, it'll hit 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds.
