McLaren has created a mini electric 720S supercar for kids
On Thursday, June 27, McLaren Automotive announced that it had created a mini yet functional kid-friendly electric supercar complete with a working infotainment system, an “autonomous driving” mode and butterfly doors.
The 720S Ride-On is a small, electrified version of the iconic supercar designed for enthusiasts aged three to six.

After a tiny driver enters the tiny vehicle via a tiny butterfly door, puts the key in the ignition and presses the accelerator pedal, the electric motor propels the car forward, a motion accompanied by artificial engine sounds.
The Ride-On can also move thanks to an “autonomous drive mode,” which is actually just a remote-control mode that lets parents control the car from the stands.
When the young supercar driver puts on the brakes, the rear lights ignite just like on the full-size 720S. To ramp up the luxury, the mini version is also equipped with an infotainment system outfitted with a display screen on which kids can play music or watch movies.
The McLaren 720S Ride-On retails for £315, or about $400 (over P20,000), and is available for order today. The mini model comes in a variety of characteristically McLaren colors. HM/JB
