That makes sense

I don't like the lack of visibility out of the lambos, and I'm only 6'1. This is where the Porsches and McLarens really benefit over the lambo- huge visibility in 720/911.
I agree CJ. Ergonomics and visceral feel are such a huge part of the experience. I had a 720S for the weekend a few months back...and while I love the overall aesthetics of the car and could appreciate how capable it is, the 675LT felt much more special to me.

Try the aventadpr S.. the rear wheel steering makes all the difference, transforms the car. I torto with massive center tunnel and mailbox visibility still a problem, but at least it now drives like it looks (SV doesn't have it and feels cumbersome in comparison)... haven't tried SVJ but anyway.. forget all the spoilers and tacky add-Ons. Aventador with RWS=different animal.

if lambo - why Aventador (or any variant of it) and not a Performante?
maybe SVJ if money is not a topic... but i guess a Performante is still more fun. chassis/driving wise.

Hennessy dyne's theirs stock and got 574 RWHP out on it...which is a bit BONKERS to think about because it means the LT is making about 670-685 Crank Hp...

McLaren seems to consistently underrate...720S typically shows similar increase over stated hp numbers.

I'm at a point where I have to compromise and have just one sports car. At 6'4" and 240lbs my options are slightly limited. I had a 997.2TTS with a tune, exhaust and TechArt body kit and sold it a couple years ago. I've been looking/saving for about a year and just picked up a 720S to be my one quiver car. I spent some time driving a 488, Huracan, 991TT, and 570S and the 720S was an easy choice for what I wanted. Having said that, I thought the 600LT cockpit would be similar to the 570, but the 600LT definitely has more room and hopefully I will get a chance to test drive one. When the spider version of this comes out, I think it would be a good second sports car for the track, more engaging (675LT like) to drive and enjoy for top down weather.

The 720S is a great choice, I think it's the game-changing car of the last 10 years. What color is that, it's just gorgeous!

Thanks!! It's cerulean blue. Like most colors on the 720, you need to see it in person to really appreciate the spectrum of color. I guess I should probably change my Avatar.

That was a good video. IF the Porsche wasn't tuned, likely it would have been a closer race with the Pista. And if Aventador was not brand new with 200 miles on the clock, it would have been better as well. All these cars are great. The Senna with its track focused design just blows them all away.

First of all. i'm still a big porsche fans. Now I like Mclaren more. I understand you drove 650s and the brake feels bad, it's already big improvement compare to mp4-12c. But what you should really get , is the 675LT. I been driving the LT on the track over 2 years. There is really no other car at the same price point that can catch up with it .
The Engine is very reliable considering it's v8 twin turbo spin all the way up to 8500 RPM.

I like this company, Because they don't really protect their products like Porsche. Cayman is a way better platform compare to 911, Porsche just don't want to give up their Gt3 cars, because their are obviously wrong in the weight distribution.

I agree, with those caveats the 3 cars are very similar performance. Senna on another level. I wonder why they don't try a Nurburgring record with it.
