    • HC Performance tuned BMW F13 M6 S63TU vs. tuned McLaren MP4-12C roll race

      An F10 M5 or F13 M6 with an S63TU 4.4 liter V8 twin turbo tune makes for a beast of a car. The thing is, even with a tune an M5 or an M6 is at a disadvantage compared to an McLaren MP4-12C and its 3.8 liter twin turbo M838T V8.


      Why? For one, the McLaren is just over 1000 pounds lighter. That is a massive weight difference. Secondly, the McLaren has better aerodynamics. The sleek design simply has less surface area. Add in the 8500 rpm redline, tighter gearing, and dual clutch transmission and you can see why the car is tough to beat even in stock form let alone when tuned.

      The M6 gets a slight jump in the beginning but the MP4-12C quickly passes. It continues to pull and looks to open up a lead of roughly 4-5 car lengths.

      The MP4-12C is actually a great tuning value on the market right now especially when compared to newer McLaren models.

        This race was actually fun, after 250km/h it stopped pulling. We tried a few times. But normally stock McLarens eat tuned BMW M cars for breakfast lol, so this is nothing vs a TUNED one. Owner claimed around 820HP in that thing, it was the fastest car that day Click here to enlarge It pulled hard on a M4 F82 FBO, upgrade turbo, port injection car running 100% E85.

        I believe it.

        People have barely scratched the surface of turbo upgrades on the platform too.

        My next car is going to be a McLaren.
