New McLaren - quicker than the Tesla P100D in the 1/4

Recommended Posts

T3X4S    4,533

Ars Technica has a little write-up about the new McLaren 720S - killing the standing 1/4 in 10.3 seconds 

Actual release isnt till next week - leaked pics are on the net, but there are some more pics on the site

Looks a lot like the P1

Yeah but the P100D never held any records for the 1/4 mile.

True, but it is smart on their part to try and take some of the heat off of Tesla's record-breaking run from last week.
Most people dont know that after the Tesla hits about 80 it starts really tapering off, so if a car maker just came out with an amazing feet, its smart to go after them and twist it a little for the uninitiated "oh yeah...well we just beat them !" kind of thing.

Regardless, the 720S is faster than the Huracan - and that is saying a lot, considering the Huracan is a beast.

(I just hope the next gen GT-R obliterates all of them)

Very impressive, especially for a stock RWD car. I wonder which stock car will be able to break 9's

Both the Koenigsegg Regera and One:1 get mid 9s in the 1/4.
The Hennessey Venom GT barely gets under @ 9.9

(I would think those 3 are the fastest cars on the planet)

Oh right, forget about those cars. My statement should be: I wonder which stock car will be able to break 8's :D
