    McLaren MP4-12C on hybrid turbos vs. supercharged Lamborghini Huracan roll on

    The MP4-12C is somewhat overlooked and it is tough to explain why. It is essentially a 650S in slightly detuned form. It has the same carbon chassis and M838T 3.8 liter twin turbo flat-plane crank V8. It's light, powerful, and high revving.

    Give it some minor upgrades and not much can touch it. Not even a supercharged Lamborghini Huracan.

    The Huracan despite also having a high revving motor is carrying more weight and sending it to all four wheels. The MP4-12 is much more efficient namely from a roll.

    Look at what this DME Tuning Stage 3 tuned example with Pure Turbos hybrid turbo upgrade does to this VFE800 supercharged Huracan. The McLaren pulls effortlessly.

    There is not much that can touch a McLaren with a turbo upgrade on the highway.

    Mclarens are very impressive. I believe the 720S can outpace a Supercharged Huracan as well....

    Would like to hear one in person to see how it sounds vs the Huracan, which I know well.

    Seems, the exhaust note has a lot more going on than other mclarens ie 570/650/12c

    That's why I don't get why the prices drop so hard. An MP4-12C is more advanced and a better performer than a 488.
