A video has been posted on the Carfection YouTube channel showing the race between the 992 generation German Porsche 911 Turbo S sports coupe and the British McLaren 600LT. The engines of both cars offer 619 Nm of torque.

If you were skeptical about the impressive performance of the new Porsche 911 Turbo S on a straight line, we have a video for you. The Carfection team from the YouTube channel of the same name decided to play the 992 generation 911 Turbo S against the British supercar McLaren 600LT.

The 992 generation Porsche 911 Turbo S is one of the most impressive sports cars on sale today. It is equipped with a 3.8-liter 6-cylinder engine that develops 640 horsepower and 619 Nm of torque. This superb engine is paired with a lightning-fast PDK 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission that allows this impressive 911 to harness the full power of the uprated six.

To provide optimal traction and acceleration, the 911 Turbo S uses an all-wheel drive system that can control torque and deliver power to the wheels selectively.

These impressive performances accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 2.6 seconds and a top speed of 329.84 km / h.

The McLaren 600LT is a lightweight version of the powerful British coupe built to ride on the track. Under the hood of this car is a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine producing 592 horsepower (619 Nm). Power is sent through a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission to the rear wheels.

If the track had been longer, this straight race would have yielded a slightly different result, but in this shorter sprint, nothing beats the Turbo S.
