With a positively spellbinding appearance and F-1-esque performance, it’s hard to miss a 2020 McLaren 720S zipping down a city street. And even more fun than watching this machine cruise by is piloting it yourself. This is a vehicle that will not only mesmerize onlookers with its appearance, but also hypnotize you with its drive. Basically, we’re saying it has the effect of two System of a Down albums in one.
The Nissan GT-R has long styled itself a supercar killer, and it does boast a significantly lower starting price. This machine still brings along the intense acceleration and well-balanced ride that it’s known for. However, with not much having changed since its debut nearly a decade ago, the 2020 incarnation of the model is starting to show its age.
Though the starting price of the 2020 McLaren 720S is substantially higher than that of the 2020 Nissan GT-R, it makes up for this by simply existing on a whole different level of vehicular bliss. The 2020 720S epitomizes the essence of that special relationship that exists between car and driver. Elements such as the world class steering feedback, surprising ride dexterity and relentless stopping power make this mid-engine exotic machine the sort of thing you need to experience firsthand.
The 2020 Nissan GT-R has long been known by the nickname of Godzilla. This nickname has taken on a new pertinence in recent years as the machine has become a bit of a “fossil” in the automotive landscape. It hasn’t changed much since its debut, except in terms of its ever-increasing price tag, and compared to modern vehicles it suffers from uncommunicative steering and somewhat clunky proportions. It’s still a fun machine, but doesn’t reach the lofty heights of the 2020 McLaren 720S. To be fair, few vehicles do.
