McLaren Automotive is a relatively young company and already, it has built some of the most impressive supercars and hypercars on the planet. This clip shared by Top Gear shows some of the finest McLaren reviews from Chris Harris.
The first review compares the P1 to the 720S at the Portimao circuit in Portugal. This was an eye-opener from Harris as it shows just how well matched the two McLarens are.
When the P1 hit the market in late 2013, it joined the Porsche 918 Spyder and LaFerrari in redefining performance for a street-legal car. Powered by a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8 supplemented by an electric motor, it delivers 903 hp and lapped the circuit in 1:54.7. Despite its 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 producing “only” 710 hp, the 720S set a lap of 1:55.2, just 0.5 seconds behind the P1.
The second review compares the McLaren 600LT with the Ferrari 488 Pista. This one is particularly interesting, as these two aren’t direct competitors and the McLaren is significantly cheaper than the Ferrari. Nevertheless, it is still very entertaining.
Last but not least is a segment from the most recent season of Top Gear where the McLaren Speedtail faces off against an F35 fighter jet for a truly incredible drag race.
