    Porsche 997.2 PDK 911 Turbo S takes on the McLaren MP4-12C, Ferrari 458, and Noble M600 in a 600 meter drag race

    The McLaren MP4-12C is the sports car of the moment. Having been recently released into magazine hands for testing we have already seen some very cool comparison videos. This is the first straightline performance comparison and the McLaren is very, very quick in a straight line. A 600 meter drag race allows the cars to stretch their legs a bit longer than a 1/4 mile which definitely helps cars of this power level show off. We won't spoil the result, check out the video.

    I'd go with the McLaren. It will be incredibly rare. Same price as an LP560. Twin turbos (for modding potential). Not the prettiest of the bunch but those doors are sick lol. McLaren with straight pipe exhaust and tune and you have automotive heaven.

    Wait for Novitec Ross, they will probably add a few blowers to 458 and then BOOM! it will be a rapist.

    You guys notice the trap speeds? They seem a little off, the noble was pulling like a freight train but the trap speed is the same as the mclearen!

    I just said $50k....
    Now that you bring up UGR let's add $100k
    Their bolt on solution is around $35-40,000
    But if you want the real deal it's easily $100,000+
    For over $100,000 I am sure the McLaren's turbos can be swapped, motor built, transmission built, etc. Plus I'm not sure anyone has built the 458's transmission anyway. Regardless, now we are talking 6 figure modifications here.

    What's $50k here or there?
