First impressions when driving the new Mclaren 720s yesterday:
--------------------------------------------------------
My first drive became all about the refinement, luxury feel of the cabin and the smoothness of the ride. 
Unfortunately due to bad rainy weather, busy city traffic and it being brand new and needing a warm up, I didn't get to give it a proper drive, just a quick nip around town, mostly in auto mode. So I decided to accept that side of the car and experience it as an around town GT style car for my first drive.

Mclaren are good at making cars that are two different beasts in one, and I got to experience one side of that. (The luxury, comfort side) It's a step up in every direction from the cars before it, which really says something about it. In auto mode around town, the shifts are too smooth to notice, the ride super comfortable and the cabin is extremely light with glass everywhere. Visibility is amazing and helped by a full wide HD reverse cam, and a 360 degree top down parking mode which shows your surroundings from a birds eye view on the main screen as you manoeuvre. The entire cabin has a futuristic look to it that makes me think sci-fi. The moving front screen certainly adds drama, but in actual use, I'm not sold yet. It feels a little gimmicky. But overall the car gives an immediate feeling of luxury and so comfortable you could happily use it as a GT style car day to day when not having 'real' fun with it. ----------------------------------------------------------Of course, for me, the far more interesting and exciting side will come when it's opened up. It will be interesting to take it out on the open roads and give it a proper drive soon and see what the animal side is made of. I will report back with videos and a write up of that test drive, which will come as soon as I can set some time aside to schedule it.

It's not what you have... it's not what you say... it's what you DO that makes you a man of character.

My Audi RS5 was a mean looking beast 😈 
The RS5 has a great engine and an awesome mix of luxury feel with power and handling. Slightly quiet in the cabin for my liking and better when fully blacked out, but it's an all round beast of a car. πŸ‘ŒπŸ»
