Chris Harris

Since its introduction a few years ago, the McLaren 12C has been the poster child for high-end, semi-super-exotic performance. It’s ungodly capable and produces some great numbers, but in my opinion, simply isn’t much to look at. The new Porsche 911 Turbo S on the other hand, is a wonderful creation with a pedigree that stretches for almost 40 years. So, which one is better? Click through and watch Chris Harris answer that question for all of us.

The following video was made to not only help us remember what can be accomplished, but motivate us to think outside the box and move forward.

McLaren MP4-12C on DRIVE

The McLaren MP4-12C packs 600 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque. It goes 0-124 mph in 9.1 seconds and then onto a top speed of 206 mph. It’s the little brother of the famed McLaren F1, a car that is perhaps one of the top 5 performance automobiles ever built. Therefore when McLaren decided to build the MP4-12C they knew that they had some serious shoes to fill. However where the F1 was on the verge of being a pure race car, the MP4-12C was designed to be a pure sports car that could be used on a daily basis. Chris Harris of Youtube’s DRIVE network recently took McLaren’s new play toy out to give it a proper flogging and came away with some very interesting insights.
