Is the cheapest McLaren still faster than a GT-R or a NSX?

By Faiming_low on 14 Jan 2017

Attached Image Even though it is the cheapest McLaren you can buy, the 540C still has a good 533bhp. But is it enough to see off the Nissan GT-R and the Honda NSX in a drag race?

We wouldn't blame you if you thought that the McLaren has lost the battle even before the race starts. With the NSX having 573bhp and the GT-R having 562bhp, they should walk away from the British supercar in the slippery conditions with the help of their all-wheel drive drivetrains.

But is that really the case? Watch Auto Express's video and see for yourself!

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?

Interesting test but sort of a bit unfair. 

 

As what the presenter said, the weight and the price difference (more so in Singapore) stand out here.  [crazy]

 

On the other hand, take the price difference and modify the GT-R to make it within the similar price bracket, then it is a very different story.  [:p]
