The ZR1 takes the jump on 2 the 720 went on 3 and the ZR1 gets reeled in quick.

They told him to, expecting the results. A 570s matches a zr1. 720s is just overkill.

Tough decision. Get the 720S or buy 2 ZR1's. Great cars.

I knew that the 720 would beat the ZR1 but I never expected a complete walk-away, unbelievable....I have a newfound respect for the McLaren that I never had before.

The 720 is no joke. As a McLaren ownwer, I can say neither is the depreciation burn.

I haven’t heard so about the 720 but I know the 12C is basically at a third of the value it was 4-6 years ago. I feel the 570 is on the same route. I feel the 720 might not do this though because every time I see a 720 vs video the 720 eats everything like a sack lunch. ZR1, Porsche GT cars, Huracans, 488s , whatever. I expect they’ll make a 750/775LT as the “hardcore variant” that just makes everything look even worse.

If the 720 ever makes it in the sub 200 range it’s my go to exotic. The performance is just too unreal. Truly in a class of its own.

The 720 is a beast for sure but everyone wants to forget about the Corvette Z06 which is tunable with mods and with intake, the Magnuson 2300 headers and tune. Tune time performance
installs then on the Z06 A8 with headers and intake and they on stock rubber run in the 9's @ 138-139 faster than stock ZR1's
Several others members like Nic'd have the 2300 as well running 9'8's at 142 at high altitude The 720 I think may have trouble beating Nicks car!
I installed one on my Z06 M7 it made 673 rwhp on a Mustang dyno and weighs only about 3450. (Would love to run a Zr1 m7.) The ZR1's weight no less than 3650 weigh with the additional weight on the nose .

What is the weight differential, 500-700 pounds? That's probably the difference in a nutshell.

You're comparing apples to oranges when you introduce a Z06 with mods to this discussion...

Weight difference is around 400lbs and it makes 20-40whp more than a ZR1. Also it has less downforce in a straight line due to active aero. ZR1 really didnt have a chance in this fight.

There arent that many super cars in ZR1’s class.... Not counting GT3s (base and RS) since they are under 180k, the only other proper sports super cars (not counting soft cars like 488 here) are GT2RS, 720S, and Ford GT. We know ZR1 smokes GT but the other two, not so much.

How do we "know" the ZR1 smokes the Ford GT? Is it because it ran quicker on one track on a different day with different drivers? While it may be true, I'd say there definitely needs to be much more data to make that claim.

Having driven the 720’s and the 650’s both are beasts! Not at all surprised at the outcome. In 2 years the 720’s will be 200k used.
