Check out the McLaren 650S, the open top version in this case, facing its extremely powerful older brother, McLaren P1, in a drag race.
Yeah, of course, this is not a fair race… although both is powered by a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine (such as any other car built by the British brand) the similarities end here.
The engine under the hood of the McLaren 650S Spider produces 650 horsepower and 680 NM of torque. This powerful heart allows the McLaren’s supercar to sprint from 0-62 mph in 3.0 seconds, 0-124 mph (0-200 km/h) in 8.6 seconds and to reach a top speed of 204 mph (329 km/h).
The P1’s heart, on the other hand, is much more powerful — produces 737 HP and 719 NM of torque by itself and, yet, counts with some electrical help adding 179 ponies and 260NM of torque to the amount. With a total of 916 HP (903 bhp), the McLaren’s ultimate road legal car accelerates from 0-62 in 2.8 seconds, 0-124 in 6.8s while its top speed is electronically limited at 217 mph (350 km/h).
