McLaren 650S vs Nissan GT-R Drag Racing 1/4 Mile

February 5th, 2015

McLaren-650S-vs-Nissan-GT-RHere is another race from our StreetCarDrags event with a brand new McLaren 650S Spider taking on a Nissan GT-R.  The McLaren is powered by a 3.8L V8 Twin Turbo engine producing 641HP though a 7 speed dual clutch transmission.  The GT-R has a 3.8L V6 with 545HP and a 6 speed dual clutch transmission.

With both cars spinning off the line the power to weight ratio is clear with the 3,200 pound 650S running 10.8 @ 133 MPH while the 3,700 pound GT-R ran 11.8 @ 119 MPH.

While both cars didn’t put up great times, this is actually one of the first real world 1/4 mile time we’ve seen for the McLaren 650S.  We have some more videos of another 650S Spider with aftermarket exhaust that was spinning even worse but trapping a very fast 136 MPH, check back soon for that video as well as other races from the event.
