    • Another 900+ wheel horsepower McLaren 720S - Pure Turbos M840T making 932 rear wheel horsepower

      Earlier this year we saw a McLaren 720S with the Pure Turbos M840T hybrid turbo upgrade producing 936 rear wheel horsepower on race gas. Well, it is now joined by yet another McLaren 720S with the same turbo upgrade producing over 900 wheel horsepower.


      932 to the rear wheels to be exact:


      The 720S is still on the stock internals and stock transmission. Not only is this a ton of power for hybrid turbos it points to built motor McLaren 720S motors with aftermarket turbo housings likely easily going well into the 1XXX horsepower range.

      The M840T is simply an incredible platform.

        The M840T is the 2jz of supercars, lol. What an amazing engine without the use of modern tech like direct injection.

        Direct injected is primarily for fuel efficiency, not performance.

        It's also overrated and a pain in the ass with fueling.

        McLaren gets it 100% right by ditching it while some morons still swear DI is sooooo great.

        DI allows higher compression which leads to better response so it does have advantages but Mclaren has eliminated that advantage by making their cars so light & powerful.

        Higher compression on pump fuel. Running leaner before detonation is the main advantage and for fuel efficiency.

        Let’s not forget the disadvantages of DI and the advantages of port injection either.
