Now, as supercar fans know, the two don't play in the same velocity league. However, we're not talking about stock toys here. Instead, these contraptions have been taken down the aftermarket path.
Even so, we have to mention that the mods fitted to the 'Vette are more serious than the ones found on the Woking animal.
The two beasts engaged in rolling start drag races, with the two battling on two separate occasions. So while the first battle kicked off at 50 mph, the second saw the machines starting at 70 mph.
The McLaren is fitted with catless downpipes, while also featuring a DME tune. As such, the 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 of the supercar delivers 600 hp at the rear wheels, which means its crank output sits at about 650 ponies.
As we mentioned above, the story is a bit different with the 'Vette, since the blown 6.2-liter V8 of the American machine packs more serious aftermarket work. To be more precise, the unit comes with full bolt ons (think: intake, downpipes, cat back exhaust and a tune), heads/cam, an E85 setup, along with a 100 nitrous shot.
This means the Chevy now comes with a monstrous wheel output of 840 hp and 940 lb-ft of twist, which means its crank output sits at around 950 hp.
P.S.: If you're willing to go past the YouTube details and skip straight to the drag racing action, you can find your way to the 11:14 point of the video, which is where the good times await you.
