THE NEED FOR SPEED

For the younger thrill-seekers, the first-ever McLaren 720S ‘Ride-On’ mini car builds on the earlier McLaren P1TM children’s model with even greater McLaren authenticity. Perfect entertainment and amenity for the smallest of guests.

Recently voted World Performance Car 2019 by the World Car of the Year jury, the 720S is now available for the younger generation of supercar fans.

An ideal left-field addition to your hotel’s outdoor offerings, the new officially licensed ‘Ride-On’ follows 2016’s launch of McLaren’s first children’s electric car, the McLaren P1TM ‘Ride-On’.

The mini car is powered by an electric motor operated by a working accelerator pedal with added engine sounds. The ‘engine’ operates with a key, but can also be controlled by remote control, providing a degree of automotive autonomy as well as supervisor control.

A brake function –with brake light – and a dashboard display screen that gives key information will help to allay any toddlers’ range-anxiety.

The screen also houses the infotainment system, with buttons for different functions on the dashboard. When not whizzing around the nursery, the youngest of all McLaren drivers can take time out to 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.

The McLaren 720S ‘Ride-On’ is available in New Zealand at www.minicars.nz
