15 McLaren 570S beats Porsche 911 Turbo S and Audi R8 Plus, sets new lap record at Llandow

Cover for McLaren 570S beats Porsche 911 Turbo S and Audi R8 Plus, sets new lap record at Llandow

Auto Express just released another one of their track battles at the 1 mile long Llandow circuit in Wales.

In this episode it was the popular supercar trio - Porsche 991 Turbo S, Audi R8 V10 Plus and McLaren 570S. The driver, as usual - the resident Auto Express editor and presenter Steve Sutcliffe.

Steve has been aorund this track more than a couple of times, and you can tell by his driving. I also liked his remark about steering feel - "steering feel is not the sort of thing I worry about in these videos". Indeed - it's all about numbers here, its all about fastest laps.

And all three were extremely fast - both Porsche and McLaren beat previous lap record, which used to belong to McLaren 650S Spider.

@v8supercar1 The Viper ACR has been compared to the 918,P1,Laferrari,Bugatti Veyron,Pagani Huyara and no one seems to have a problem with that....When i compare to 675 or gt3 or turbo then it becomes a problem.....fans start crying.. How dare you compare!!! :D

@GMW I see you have a tremendous amount of respect for the Viper ACR, to compare it to a 3.6 million dollar car. To me the Viper ACR is more in the class of a 911 GT3 model or maybe even a 675LT. You know. Cars that are not literally millions of dollars apart in price.

check the huracan vs viper comparison and you will understand why both cars must be equal in terms of downforce, tires, weight difference etc....

@tharne The Viper ACR is essentially a GT3 racer and cannot be compared to cars like the 570s. If you want to compare the ACR to a McLaren, compare to a P1 GTR and watch it get destroyed.

Pirelli p zero N1 is a great tire. Much more similar than a semislick thant the people think. In fact Turbo S does bad time when the track is danp or wet because have a few draw.

If the Porsche had Michelin Cup 2 tyres or Pirreli P zero trofeo , the Mclaren didn't have a chance! The Porsche will be 0.5-1 second faster with some track focus tyres. The Pirelli p zero N1 is not good at all for track use!

it denotes to the beast that mclaren unleashed to sweep the outdated 911 turbo and takeover without awd and other bullshit, which porsche enjoys feeding the people that are in a vegetative state.

Lol the 570s makes the 650s useless. Though the 570s is only mildly more practical than a 650s, I think it beats it in every way other that engine bay cover. Would hate to be a 650s owner
