Stock McLaren 765LT vs. Modified Eagle Talon – Drag Race

February 28th, 2024

Those Hoonigan Hooligans are at it again. This time, they’ve lined up a 1,000-foot drag race between a stock McLaren 765 Longtail and a radically modified Eagle Talon. You don’t want to miss this one.

The McLaren 765LT is a mid-engine, rear-wheel drive two passenger supercar manufactured in the United Kingdom. Powered by a twin turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine, the 765LT can produce 755hp and 590 lb.-ft. of torque at peak RPM. This speedy McLaren not only looks the part of a race car, it can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in a scant 2.7-seconds and turn the standing quarter-mile in 10-seconds flat. Top speed for the 765LT is 205 mph. As one of the most capable track cars on the planet, the 765 Longtail comes with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and weighs-in at 3,300-pounds. The price? The base model comes in at $382,500.

In the opposite lane is the homely 1990 Eagle Talon. This ugly duckling (when compared to the glamorous 765LT) is powered by a dual overhead cam 4G63E 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with a massive turbo. In its current state, this Talon can churn out 800hp to the front wheels. The engine is professionally built with aluminum connecting rods. The block has been strengthened by partially filling the coolant passages. Up front, the Talon has Hoosier rubber and Wilwood brakes. It ain’t how you look, it’s what you have under the hood.

There ain’t nothing to it but to do it. Time to line them up and bust the gas.
