Drag Racing – McLaren 570S vs. Chevy Corvette Z06

May 24th, 2018

The thing that makes this drag race interesting is that one of the cars utilizes a small (3.8-liter ) engine with dual power-adders and the second car uses a larger (6.2-liter) engine with a small power-adder. Oh, one is British and the other is American, adding to this fast-paced opera of speed. The 570S is built around a carbon-fiber tub. It is rear-wheel drive vehicle with a mid-mounted engine and a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. The power plant is an all-aluminum 3.8-liter V8 with 4-valves per cylinder  and direct fuel injection. It has twin turbochargers and an intercooler. The engine is Read More

Street Rolls – McLaren 570S vs. 2019 Corvette ZR1

April 25th, 2018

As the most capable Corvette to ever roll off the assembly line, the 2019 version of the ZR1 opens a door (of sorts) for performance enthusiasts. Finally, we can dare to dream of a day when a Chevrolet can compete with the much lauded McLaren 570S. That day is here my friend! You may recognize the kid as the driver of the extraordinary automobile that has been tearing up the Cecil County Dragway and documenting the damage. Today, he will put his ‘Vette up against a 570S in multiple street hits. These will be roll races from various speeds with Read More

Stock McLaren 720S runs 9.7 @ 147 MPH

November 20th, 2017

While we ran 9.9 @ 141 MPH in our McLaren 720S a few weeks ago, we knew the car would go quicker with some better weather and that just happened in a monster way at a private track rental at ATCO Raceway in New Jersey.   During a private rental an all stock McLaren 720s killed the 1/4 mile in just 9.7 seconds at over 147 MPH with multiple runs to backup the times.  Weather was perfect with 40 degree temps,  low humidity and a DA of -1100 feet. With perfectly cool weather conditions come complications with regards to heating up Read More

McLaren 720S Dyno Results and Graphs

October 31st, 2017

Many have been wondering how the McLaren 720S can be so fast running 9.9 in the 1/4 mile with just 710 horsepower as per McLaren’s specifications for it’s latest supercar. We take a trip with the McLaren 720S over to a dyno to see just how much horsepower and torque the amazingly fast supercar makes from it’s 4.0L twin turbocharged V8. Since different dynos can report different numbers, we also dyno a McLaren MP4-12C to compare power numbers between the two cars.

New Lamborghini S – Test Track

June 16th, 2017

When Lamborghini introduced the Aventador in 2011, it set the world of high-performance sports cars on its ear. Less than a decade removed and the same Aventador was becoming a bit mundane. It was to be expected – with recent advances in speed and technology. Offerings from McLaren, Ferrari, Porsche, and Bugatti – just to name a few – have had the big Lamborghini floundering for a portion of the premium market share. Not being a car company to suffer in mediocrity, Lamborghini has recently introduced the all-new Aventador S; seen before your very eyes in this video. The S Read More

McLaren 720S – Track Testing

June 6th, 2017

Join professional race driver Steve Sutcliffe as he puts this British beauty through its paces on a closed track. From the 650S family of cars, this is the car rumored to be quicker than the P1. After driving the car to the track on some rough public (Italian) streets, Steve is rendered speechless as he challenges the 720S around steep corners and deep curves. The acceleration is blinding, the steering crisp and clean, and the braking is precise and effortless. No wonder our wheel-man is left without words. The 720S is equipped with an all-new 4.0-liter twin turbocharged V8 engine Read More

Drag Race – McLaren 540C vs Honda NSX vs Nissan GT-R

May 27th, 2017

If you trust the statistics, all the data points to the McLaren getting spanked handily in this short drag race. Both the Japanese supercars have more power and more torque than the British variant. Adding insult to injury – the McLaren is the only car in this elite field that is not all-wheel drive so, it also has less traction. Fortunately for us, the producers of this video decided to go ahead and run the race anyway. Sometimes things don’t work out as expected. The carbon-fiber tubbed McLaren is the lightest of the three cars and is equipped with a Read More

POV – 9-Second McLaren 570S

May 18th, 2017

This video introduces us to what is officially the first McLaren 570S to ever post a 9-second quarter-mile elapsed time. That makes this British built supercar a world record holder of sorts. In my humble opinion, the McLaren 570S is a seriously amazing automobile, in factory trim. Each (entry level) mid-engine 570S that rolls off the assembly line (there are only about 4,000 produced annually) does so with a 502hp, 3.8-liter, twin-turbocharged, V8 engine that also makes 443 lb.-ft. of torque. It comes with a sequential, 7-speed gearbox and it is rear-wheel drive. In stock trim, the 570S can accelerate Read More
