Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Mid-engined supercars are seldom practical, but the 720S scores better than most in this area.

Okay, it has only two seats, but they’re easy to get to thanks to McLaren’s trademark butterfly doors, which open upwards and forwards, taking a large section of the sill with them.

The 720S also has enough head, leg and elbow room to keep a couple of adults well over six feet tall happy.

Meanwhile, oddment storage includes two cupholders and a lidded bin between the front seats, and a handy tray beneath the centre console.

The space beneath the bonnet is big enough for a couple of airline-sized carry-ons, and doesn’t have the sort of fiddly catch you find on most mid or rear-engined cars. And when the roof is up, the space that it folds into can be used for more luggage.

The roof isn’t particularly quick, taking 11 seconds to fold up or down, but it can be operated at speeds of up to 31mph.
