Here is an interesting battle between one of the all time favourite super cars – McLaren F1 and the new MP4-12C, which is considered to become the best road going car in the world.

McLaren F1 is powered by BMW supplied 6.1 litre naturally aspirated V12 with staggering 636PS (468 kW) at 7400RPM and 651Nm (480 lb-ft) at 5600RPM. The engine has a redline rev limiter set at 7500RPM. It is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox and the compression ratio is 11:1. The curb weight of the car is just 1 140kg, so the performance is just astonishing.
