A modified version of the McLaren MP4-12C has recently hit the drag strip only to do a quarter mile in just a little over 10 seconds.
In case you are a fan of the McLaren MP4-12C and you are concerned that this will be forgotten because of its successor, the 650S Coupe, think again, because the supercar is not ready for the scrap yard, just yet. The newest clip with such a model is showing it on the drag strip, doing a quarter mile in just 10.1 seconds. Keep in mind that this isn’t your ordinary MP4-12C but a modified one, signed by AMS. The 3.8 liter twin turbo V8 engine under its hood has been upgraded and it is now producing a total of 616 HP.
The McLaren MP4-12C has been in production for just 3 years, between 2011 and 2014, offered in two body styles, 2-door coupe (MP4-12C) and 2-door roadster (12C Spider), both of them with the same rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. Power was being provided by a 3.8 liter twin turbo V8 engine, connected to the 7-speed dual clutch transmission. The total output produced by the unit stood at 592 HP (441 k)W and 601 Nm (443 lb-ft) of torque, which was enough to allow the standard supercar to reach 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 2.8 seconds and to go all the way up to 207 mph (333 km/h), in its top speed.
