It's just classic Myles Madden being Myles Madden. The Ferrari 488 GTB doesn't even do 10.3 on a dragstrip with rollout, and that's the 650S' competitor.

"stock 10.3@135 mph"

I don't think the car is stock.
It surely has wider tires (315 vs 305) the Toyo R888 that are equipping this MP4 came only with this size.

"Nissan VRH35L."

😂

No Tom Walkngshaw Racing very heavily modified it or REDESIGNED it. Possibly completely.

So, Ricardo's REDESIGNING was from a previous English Engineering powerhouses work, in terms of the Mclaren V8 the M838T. It'd be interesting to know what specifically they did and who McLaren/Ricardo purchased the engineering patents and rights from.

So what can I say? Well don't need to say anything. We've got some of the best engineers on the planet thus engineering.

And that's not an alien concept is it? Well, not to any engineers. Where do you think SEXY metrics comes from? Mathematics is a vital cornerstone of engineering.

Ha, this used to be my favorite MP car in Need For Speed Hot Pursuit. Sure was fun to wreck all the Lambos.

Even though it had its flaws, this car laid the foundation for P1, 570S and the other McLarens to come, all of which are pretty darn good.

Sorry, it´s a error of the site...It´s a 600ps version :(


User avatar

M Powaaa  4y ago

The laptimes of Hock enhein and Nordschleife are of the version of 625ps...

Where is 740 PS ? I dont see it at all...My personal guess is that Mclaren is a bit underrated in power output while F12 may be (?) overrated in power.

Now, anyone that has the audacity to state that the McLaren MP4-12C is a Nissian GTR in Brioni suit is utterly, unequivocally, mentally impaired.

Customers who had bought the McLaren when it was 591 hp, freely got it upgraded to the more powerful version, well at least that's what happened where I live, so I'm not sure if this page is even needed anymore

Dont think that 600 hp car can do that times...

It can be stock but for sure it has far more than 600 hp.

That time is Veyron territory.

Mayby for a moment we will see that 600 hp car does 9,9s 1/4 mile ?

@Viking,thanks,it has been said that in the flesh the car is far more impressive than any photo!! Mine has just come back from its platfrom 10 upgrade,this makes all the cars up to current 2013 spec with the 625ps and upgraded mapping on the gearbox.I couldnt believe another 25ps would make the car feel quicker,but with the quicker gearbox as well its now even more balistic and even tiffney dell has said its made a massive difference(he was talking about the spider,but still the same spec car).I would think the track times will fall again next season as the magazines start testing the new model year,we will see !!

This car's picture belongs on a 12 year old boy's bedroom wall, it looks outrageous and it's name is comprised of a bunch of letters, numbers, and symbols that mean absolutely nothing. Jeremy Clarkson from top gear says it sounds like it's named after a fax machine. The car's name matches it's character, really technical and mathemetic.

It does look better in person yes, but I think that's true of most cars. I saw one a couple of weeks ago being trailed by a Ferrari 360. And both of those cars were about a mile behind a Viper ACR.

If only highways were like that more often.

I followed one

lol Stalker..

But not that i can blame you, Its prolly a rare sight for the common man(Given you are) I would love to have a drag with one of these one day in my Mazda, and around track.

I still think its much prettier then a 458, the interior doesnt do it for me, ugly IMO, and i thought they should have used either the Average doors, or SwanWing doors.

Wow, I finally have seen one of these McLarens in person. I followed one up Route 29 in Napa California on my way to work the other day. Absolutely beautiful exotic. Wide, low, and exotic looking. Tim your car has great styling, very nice.
