If a special person in your life keeps dropping hints that they’d love a McLaren supercar but you don’t have the $250K—or more—to spare, allow us to show you the McLaren 720S ride-on toy, which comes in at just $400 or so. Compared to a real open-air $315,000 720S Spider, it’s almost 800 times cheaper.
As a bonus, this battery-powered toy will make your kid the coolest one on the playground. It can be ordered in eight actual McLaren colors, and it boasts several true-to-life McLaren features, including dihedral doors, a working accelerator pedal with added engine sounds, and a key to start it. This mini supercar can also be controlled remotely via Bluetooth using a remote or a phone to prepare kids for our autonomous ride-hailing future—or, you know, because parents don’t want their five-year-old to have a reckless-driving ticket on their record.
The 720S ride-on also has an infotainment system that allows little speed demons to listen to music or watch short video clips by plugging a USB drive or SD card into provided slots. A selection of popular kids’ songs is preloaded into the system, too. Throw in some carbon-style elements and signature 720S styling, and it’s possible your child will have a car even nicer than yours.
