McLaren 600LT v Senna drag race - video

McLaren has three distinct tiers in its model range: Sport, Super and Ultimate. But the line between the three continues to blur, thanks to cars like the 600LT. With 441kW and 620Nm on tap, the 600LT is capable of hitting 100km/h in just 2.9 seconds and keeps pulling to 328km/h if given a long enough stretch of road. That's fairly super in essentially every measurable way...
