Watch the Difference in Straight Line Speed Of the McLaren Senna and 600LT


McLaren Senna vs. McLaren 600LT

Hypercar vs. Supercar

It’s clear on paper who would win in a drag race between the McLaren Senna and the McLaren 600LT. Both cars are very fast cars, but the Senna is on a whole other level. While that is clear purely from the specifications and performance numbers, it can be hard to truly visualize this in real life. 

Well, that’s where the guys over at Motorsport Magazine come in. They thought it best to really demonstrate the difference between the two cars. The publication wanted to showcase what makes the one so much faster than the other. The team took a McLaren Senna and a McLaren 600LT, both obviously stock cars, to a long stretch of road. According to Carscoops, the stretch measured 1,000 meters or .62 miles. 

We all know the Senna with its 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 that makes 728 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque will win, but the McLaren 600LT with its 197 hp and 133 lb-ft of torque disadvantage does do its best to keep pace. However, there’s no chance with the Senna. The space between the cars is honestly a little surprising, even though after reviewing the specifications again, it shouldn’t be.
