Hitting selected global toy stores, the McLaren 720S ‘Ride-On’ is the latest version of the multiple award-winning McLaren 720S. Three-to-six-year-olds can even choose the color for their first supercar: Azores Orange, Belize Blue, Lantana Purple, Onyx Black, Mauvine Blue, Silica White, or Saros Grey.
McLaren released its first children’s electric car in 2016. The McLaren P1TM ‘Ride-On’ was created to inspire younger enthusiasts and future car owners. The new McLaren 720S ‘Ride-On’ further embraces the McLaren ethos. Functioning dihedral doors combined with exposed carbon-style elements and signature 720S styling cues immediately identifies the model with the actual car.
The exclusive launch color, available later in the year and only through McLaren Retailers, is the McLaren heritage hue, Papaya Spark. The McLaren 720S ‘Ride-On’ is fitted with an electric motor operated by a working accelerator pedal with added engine sounds. The “engine” can be started with a key, but it can also be controlled by remote control to provide a degree of automotive autonomy, as well as parental control.
The model features brake light and a dashboard display screen that gives key information. The screen also houses the infotainment system, with buttons for different functions on the dashboard. The young McLaren drivers can listen to music or watch a short movie by plugging a USB or SD card into the sockets provided. A selection of popular songs for six-year-olds is pre-loaded into the system.
McLaren 720S ‘Ride-On’ costs £315. Fun fact – it would be possible to buy seven hundred 720S ‘Ride-Ons’ for the cost of one real 720S Coupé.
