Movie Scoop: Lamborghini, McLaren and Koenigsegg Battle it Out in Need For Speed Film

Now that we’ve pretty much confirmed that a number of exotic supercars used in the filming of the “Need for Speed” movie in California are replicas from a detailed set of close-up shots, these fresh pictures from our new friends at Mendocinosportsplus (MSP) make a lot more sense – would you ever imagine any movie maker endangering so many rare, multi-million dollar vehicles?

In one scene, we see the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento, of which only 20 examples were built in real life, chasing what we assume to be a clone of the all-new McLaren P1 and the a Koenigsegg Agera R in a very tight turn.

The crew from MSP commented: “This definitely needed another “take” when the lead & #3 cars “spun out” on the second turn heading up Elk Creek grade. They weren’t the first to do it believe me…”
