    • Stock McLaren 570S vs. stock Ferrari 488 GTB roll ons + Dyno output comparison

      This is an interesting video. For one, the result you see goes against some of the data provided. A BoostAddict member took his stock 570S to the strip and ran 10.27 @ 135 in the 1/4 mile. Very, very impressive.


      The only dragstrip result of the Ferrari 488 GTB we have to go on is a result from the Middle East. At the Bahrain dragstrip a 488 GTB ran 10.372 @ 137.35.

      That means from a roll the higher trap speed should win which would be the 488 GTB. Yet, as you can see, the McLaren 570S pulls it. Not once, twice, from different speeds.

      What can we conclude from this? Well, the much lighter McLaren 570S appears to be the quicker car. BoostAddict also does not have much faith in Middle Eastern dragstrips to begin with. The Bahrain result appears bogus.

      Here is a stock 570S graph:


      Here is a stock 488 GTB:


      Similar peak power but less torque for the 570S. Considering the 570S weighs roughly 400 pounds less, the result you see in the video below makes sense. It seems we were being misled about the 488 GTB's performance.

        That wasn't close. I need a 570S.

        Ferrari is the king of overeating.

        I can tell you this, owning a 570S. The key to the McLaren beating its competition in a straight-up drag race is getting the rear tires hot. If they are hot & sticky, the car leaves hard and very little can catch it from there. But, if not, an all-wheel drive car such as a tt, Audi R8 or Huracan has an advantage off the line and then the Mac must chase it down. When I saw vids of a 570 beating a 488, Aventador and nearly doing the same to an F12, I was initially quite surprised, but now I know how much McLaren has been sandbagging with this car. It even seems to beat its big brothers off the line, and come close to if not beating their trap times, but not trap speed.

        IMHO, Ferrari usually overstates power and/or they never go quite as fast as their stated power figures suggest. Mac is usually the opposite and seems to understate actual power. Weight is also a huge factor, as many people note.

        It's lighter and tuned for more torque down low. Makes sense.

        Also, why did you never post about your 570S?

        Yes, this is very true. There is a 570S owned by Boris the Nurburgring guy that races 650's an d 675's that always gets out ahead of them off the line, if not beat them in what looks to be like an 1/8 mile drag. My car is now tuned by Fabspeed, and by 3000, it is making boost, but it still runs out of steam north of 7000. The 650 and 675 still make power to almost 8k rpm.

        Exactly. Nothing a turbo upgrade won't fix. You should talk to @Juan@BigBoost-Billet as they have the first and only 9 second 570S.

        I probably won't get that far, as I have my sights set on a 720S. Go next week to Dallas to place my order, so I will enjoy probably another 8 months with my 570 before bidding it farewell.

        I'm pretty jealous on the 720S front. An understatement really.

        That 9 second Big Boost 570S is just tune only though. Their turbo upgrade is coming later.

        Here's a video with a 570S racing a Lambo Huracan and beating it.

        Saw that one but can't stand this guy.

        13 minute of bull$#@! before they finally race and have to get off the gas before the corner.

        Shows the 570S to be quicker but he says they are close. They aren't.
