With as much as 1,200 horsepower on tap, odds are you’d be swearing too

What do you get when you hand a supercar and lots of money over to a competent tuner? The answer should be obvious – pure, unadulterated automotive excess. Indeed, that’s exactly what our friends over at Car Throttle encountered after getting behind the wheel of this McLaren from HyperCar Development. Based out of Southern California, HyperCar Development specializes in turning your everyday McLaren supercar into some kind of mad, otherworldly mega machine, as evidenced by the triple-boosted 12C featured in the above 6-minute video.

In case you were wondering, “triple-boosted” is a reference to the third turbocharger HyperCar Development added to the stock twin-turbo 3.8-liter V-8. The trio of snails combine to produce as much as 1,200 horsepower and 800 pound-feet of torque, good enough for a 2.4-second run to 60 mph, 3.5 seconds to 100 mph, and a quarter mile time in the low 8’s. Top speed is electronically limited to 270 mph. Pricing for the package is set at $129,900, but if you’re still craving more power, the tuner says it has a 1,500-horsepower package coming soon, with the goal being a whopping 300 mph at the top end. Because of course. You can check out HyperCar Development’s website here, but in the meantime, check out the vid to see the triple-boosted 12C out in the canyons of Los Angeles.
