Video: Chris Harris puts Porsche 911 Turbo S next to McLaren 12C

Posted on by  

In the latest episode of Drive, Chris Harris put face to face two of the latest sports cars: the new Porsche 911 Turbo S and the McLaren MP4 12C . Why this strange choice? Well, because the new Turbo S is a very expensive car, and, according to Harris, it "probably needs to fend-off more exotic machinery like a yellow McLaren."

As a reminder, the 911 Turbo S is powered by a turbocharged 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine with direct fuel injection that delivers a total of 560 horsepower. It goes from 0 to 60 mph in 3.1 seconds and can hit a top speed of 197 mph. On the other hand, the MP4 12C gets a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 with an output of 616 horsepower. It goes from 0 to 60 mph in 3.1 seconds and up to 207 mph.

Check out the video to see which of the two sports car was the best according to Harris.
