It Takes 1,250 HP To Put McLaren 720S In A Corner

Godzilla has been trying to slay the McLaren 720S for quite some time now, and after failing to do so using 720 HP and 930 HP respectively, this latest GT-R came prepared.

After seeing this stock 720S run circles around a 930 HP Nissan GT-R last week, we became even more curious as to what it would take to finally beat the McLaren in a straight line – and by that we mean destroy it like it has destroyed all of its opponents thus far.

Here’s today’s contender: A 1,250 HP (1,108 WHP) twin turbo Nissan GT-R, sipping E85 fuel and wearing an ETS 3582r Turbo kit, among multiple other mods.

While racing against the McLaren, the Nissan managed to get from 60 to 130 mph (96 km/h – 209 km/h) in just 4.0 seconds, and from 100 to 150 mph (161 km/h – 241 km/h) in 3.8 seconds. Yes, that is extremely fast, even by hypercar standards.

The two cars raced twice, where the Nissan went with a Low Boost setting for the second race, putting down “only” 920 HP. Let’s just say that allowed the 720S to get some of its dignity back, after how things went down in the initial sprint.

    How are we supposed to be impressed by that? Of course it’s going to win! The racoon is an awesome machine, but everything has it’s limitations.

      Seriously, if you have to put 100k into a 100k car to get it to beat a stock vehicle that costs 280k I am not impressed at all…

      • serge charles

        try closer to 360k

  • Tumbi Mtika

    Only for the LT to absolutely f__k this the next time around.

    • Belthronding Tinuviel

      also LT is better looker.

  • Seats & a steering wheel

    The 1250hp GT-R simply walks away from the 720 S, I would suggest it would need between 1000-1100 hp to keep in front..

  • smartacus

    Well this just means
    the break even point
    for the Nissan GTR
    is somewhere around
    1,100 HP to the wheels
    Imagine if the McLaren
    had nothing more than
    a modified exhaust tune.
