VIDEO: A 1200HP TRIPLE-TURBO MCLAREN! YES PLEASE!Date: 2017-09-06
Look at it like this: 1200hp, 800lb/ft of torque, 0-60mph in 2.
4 seconds, 0-100mph in 3.5 seconds and the quarter mile in just over 8 seconds.
Just take that in. Then, consider it's limited to 270mph, and you'll realise how special this McLaren really is.
This beast of a vehicle was modified by a chap called Thad Norman, co-founder of Hypercar Development. He says it was originally a 12C and they added an LT conversion, aero kit, 8-point roll-cage, active GTR wing, upgraded brake pads and a lot more. It rides on custom rims and Michelin tires, floats across the tarmac on a cushion of hydraulic air suspension and is usable every day, even in traffic.
And this also means that it's not just fast in a straight line but can carve up the bends too.
Currently, the build takes up to three or four months but they are refining the process to have it complete in less than two, depending on the customers choice of options. In this spec, it'll cost you $140 000, which isn't a lot considering the fact that you'll have one of the worlds fastest cars.
But that's not the only good news, Thad aims to have a 1500hp package that will hit the 300mph mark. Imagine that!
