      Very slow transmission compared to the PDK.

        I really was looking in2 a C8 Corv mid-e . But you can't beat the value of the MP4. I really want this car now.

            It’s cheap because it’s not reliable, and thanks to it’s software you HAVE to take it to a McLaren dealer of anything breaks, which sucks. Also, some parts are extremely expensive, the battery costs U$D8000 I think.

                    You not worried the popo is going to drop you in a speeding ticket for this?

                    Apparently it's not unheard of for people to get speeding tickets (and worse) after posting a youtube video.

                    So be careful ;-)

                      Spends 18 minutes saying the car is amazing then says, "would I buy this car? No.".... Cool analysis bro

                        Ok, nobody's gonna call out the misinformation at 13:00?
                        "This is McLaren's first foray into street cars..."
                        Apparently somebody forgot about the original 'yardstick' car, the original F1. Still one of the best road cars ever made... 25 years later. Search up the video of Tiff Needle giggling like a child while wringing one out on street and a track. Very worth your 10 minutes.

                          The 12c is good as long as it doesn’t have the original engine 😂

McLoser isn't a CAR company, it's a CHASSIS company (and a bad one at that) because REAL CAR COMPANIES CAN MAKE THEIR OWN FUCKING ENGINES!!!!!

                                                                                        Add MISERABLE reliability, the fact they haven't done shit in real track racing since running Honda engines with Senna, and throw in insane parts, maintenance, and running costs.

                                                                                        The bitch-ass 720s is the Dodge Demon of supercars and the main reason people think McLosers are something. Too bad it'll spin that antiquated RWD on the street just like a Demon...... Need proof? Watch Drag Times spin his was to 5 second 0-60's and 12's against the 918!

                                                                                        Nothing like paying $330k+ for a Japanese-engineered engine and no Carplay or Android Auto, just to get smoked on the street by a Coyote Mustang 5.SLOW in route to replacing multiple engines and transmissions before you hit 40k miles 🤣🤣🤣🤣

The annually required maintenance is out of sight and just wait till you need to change out fuel cell, tires...for insurance. It's a track rated car. Jay Leno said his is expensive to maintain...if you don't believe me.
