colored in the mclaren‘s heritage papaya spark hue, little drivers enter the 720s via fully-functioning dihedral doors, donning exposed carbon-style elements and signature 720s styling cues. after putting a key in the ignition and pressing the accelerator pedal, the elctric motor propels the car forward.

the mini 720S is powered by an electric motor operated by a working accelerator pedal with added engine sounds. a brake function switches on a brake light at the rear just like the full-size version.

there’s also a dashboard display screen that gives key information to allay any toddlers’ range-anxiety, which doubles up as an infotainment system that can play music of movies. a small playlist of songs is pre-programmed into the car, and the videos can be accessed by plugging in a USB or an SD card.
