Supercar Street Hits – McLaren 720S vs 1000HP R32 GTR

May 12th, 2020

Lessons learned include the fact that anything wearing the McLaren nameplate is pretty difficult to get the jump on. Even if you have a ton more horsepower, it seems like anything in the McLaren lineup – with their above-average power-to-weight ratio – has the potential to jump out on you and take it to the stripe pretty hard. That being said, this primo (JDM) Nissan GTR ain’t conceding the victory. Not by a long shot.

This is definitely not your run-of-the-mill Nissan GTR. The engine has been upgraded with a stroker kit that bumps it up (from a 2.6-liter) to 3.0-liter RB30. It also has a single massive turbocharger on wastegate pressure. The exhaust is 4-inch straight-piped out to the rear. Maximum output is estimated at over 1,000hp at the crankshaft. This Nissan is rear-wheel drive only (I have no idea why) and has a beefy set of Mickey Thompson skins on the rear. This car looks and sounds amazing.

The McLaren 720S is basically stock. That means a twin turbo 4.0-liter V8 that can produce 710hp and has a top speed (electronically controlled) of 212 mph. The McLaren 720S can also accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 2.8-seconds.

There’s also a fantastic looking Porsche 911 Turbo S that rolls into frame on a few of these hits. He has a 3.8-liter twin turbocharged Boxer-V6 under the bonnet. It has the capacity to generate 640hp and accelerate from 0 to 60 mph on 2.6-seconds. Top speed is 205 mph.

When these three machines cut loose on the interstate (in Mexico) it is utter pandemonium. You don’t want to miss this one!
