So the most important question regarding the new McLaren MP4-12C is answered sooner than expected: Is it faster than Ferrari 458 Italia? Well, sort of! Someone apparently was kind enough to line the British super car up against the Ferrari and Porsche 911 Turbo for a drag race as you see in this video. But we have to wait for a more legitimate test done by a more reliable source to confirm the result. The MP4 is powered by a 600 hp V8 that takes the car from zero to 100 km/h in slightly over 3 seconds and gives it a top speed of 330 km/h.
