McLaren 12C on a drag strip

We don't have doubts about the performance of the McLaren 12C, but it's impossible not to be surprised about this recent accomplishment on a drag strip. A completely standard 12C fitted with option light wheels, sports exhaust and carbon ceramic brakes has set a very impressive time of 10.55 seconds @ 134.56mph in the classic quarter mile, and it means that it's the second quickest road production car in the world (the record holder is still the Bugatti Veyron).

To refresh your mind, the 12C has received several upgrades over the years and now its 3.8L twin turbo V8 engine produces 616hp and 599nm, pretty surprising to know that it has beaten also the record of the Lamborghini Aventador with nearly 100hp more and the 4WD, as you know the perfect feature for a quick launch.
