Pack of McLaren Racers Take on Texas Streets

July 22nd, 2021

Summer is here and the time is right for racing in the streets! That ain’t the way the song goes but it sure makes for some interesting evenings. Let’s get down to Texas (Mexico) and see what all these McLarens are buzzing about. The first McLaren to take the interstate is rolling against a twin turbocharged Dodge Viper. That’s creating a ton of horsepower when you add twin turbos to an already potent 8.4-liter V10. The Viper gets the early advantage but can’t hold the McLaren off through the trap. McLaren FTW. Next, the TT Viper takes on a pair Read More

Nissan GT-R vs. Lamborghini and More Exotics – Street Hits

April 28th, 2021

If you could find a Japanese sports car that could hang with most exotics, would you be interested? How about if you could buy it for a fraction of the price of your average supercar? Interested now? That’s basically what you can have in the Nissan GT-R. Climb in and let’s hit the highway (in Mexico, of course). Depending upon which version of the Nissan GT-R you choose, you can anticipate spending between $115K and $210K for an extremely capable production sports car. The all-wheel drive GT-R is powered by a twin turbocharged 3.8-liter V6 engine. While it is scary Read More

850HP Nissan GT-R vs. 2021 McLaren 765LT – Street Hits

February 5th, 2021

When one takes the opportunity to ponder the baddest bucket of bolts on the interstate, both the cars featured in this video must come to mind. Even the meekest of the vehicles manufactured by McLaren are virtually unrivaled when considering power-to-weight ratio – and the 765LT is the King of the Hill in the McLaren Super Series (right now). On the other hand – or in the other lane as it were – the Nissan GT-R has held its position as the hottest thing to come out of Japan for decades. With a nickname like “Godzilla” you have to stay Read More

McLaren P1 GTR – $3-Million Street Legal Track Destroyer

December 31st, 2020

On a different note, this production takes us away on a ride along in a rare McLaren P1 GTR. Oh, there are a few around out there but this particular car has been modified (using a kit from Lanzante) to make it street legal. In this case, be careful not to mistake “street legal” with “everyday driver”. This is a full-blown race car – devoid of creature comforts – and it can be brutal on the senses. Check it out. The McLaren P1 GTR is the race variant of the McLaren P1 hypercar. Only fifty-eight of them were produced and Read More

Street Drag – McLaren 720S vs. Jeep Trackhawk

August 11th, 2020

Today, we are taking a ride along with Forza Tuning and Performance founder and President Brenton Brown in a McLaren 720S. Brenton is an entrepreneur, a father and one of the leading performance gurus in the nation. Just for kicks, Brenton is putting the McLaren up against a stock Jeep Trackhawk in a drag race (on a closed course). Let’s see what he thinks about this British beauty and what it can do with the most powerful production SUV on the planet. With the capacity to produce 710hp and 568 lb.-ft. of torque, the McLaren 720S is by any standard Read More

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 Read More

Pure Turbo McLaren vs. Underground Racing Lambo – Street Hits  

April 4th, 2020

This night of street racing (in Mexico) features some of the most impressive exotics that we have seen (on the street) in a while. This McLaren clique is determined to work their British muscle into competition with the Underground Racing (UR) contingent. Careful what you ask for… Cameraman Fred climbs onboard a Battleship Gray McLaren 570GT that has been upgraded with a Pure Turbo Stage 1 Kit, a Soul Performance 3.5-inch catless downpipe assembly and a DME custom tune. Output is estimated to be somewhere in the 750-850hp range. As fate would have it, the guy in the gray McLaren Read More

1000HP Dodge Demon vs. McLaren 720S – Track Digs

March 31st, 2020

Demonology versus Dragtimes. That’s what’s up! These two hardcore auto enthusiasts have brought out a pair of stallions to see which one can claim the title “King of the Quarter Mile”. The domestic bruiser is big and bulky with a giant supercharged HEMI under the hood. The British beauty is lightweight with a smaller, twin turbocharged V8. Both cars are modified for performance and both are rear-wheel drive. Which of them is up to the task? Let’s have a look. The McLaren 720S is prepared by 1K Motorsports in Ft. Myers, Florida. It is lauded as the Fastest McLaren in Read More

McLaren 570S vs. Mustang Shelby GT500 – Street Hits

March 13th, 2020

Where do you think all the competitors go when the track closes during TX2K20? They turn out on the streets (of Mexico) for some roll racing action under the moonlight. It’s early in the weekend but there are some heavy hitters on hand for this night of roll racing on the interstate. Buckle up and get ready to race. Our camera car is a Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 with a camshaft upgrade. It is running E85 fuel and is capable of producing 800hp. In maroon, it looks great, too. As we roll out of the parking lot and onto the Read More

Corvette ZR1 vs. McLaren 570S – Street Hits

November 1st, 2019

So, whadda ya’ get when you cross a 700hp Corvette ZR1 with a McLaren 570S? How about an uncontrollable desire to see which one is faster? Lining up these two beautiful examples of automotive engineering seems as natural birds and bees. The test of the night is roll racing from the highways of Mexico. There are a pack of rabid ‘Vettes on hand, several modified Mustangs, a high-powered Cadillac CTS-V and – don’t forget – the exotic McLaren. This is going to be a hoot! The action heats up with a 700hp ZR1 (supercharged 6.2-liter) on the left and a Read More
