    Stock McLaren MP4-12C vs. 2nd gen Cadillac CTS-V with cam upgrade on E85

    The MP4-12C was phased out in favor of an updated version of the platform you all know as the 650S. That is not to say a stock MP4-12C is not potent as it definitely is. It's a tall order for any mid-size luxury sedan to take down on the highway even a modded one.

    This second generation Cadillac CTS-V is supercharged from the factory with the 6.2 liter LSA engine. It responds well to modification which it will need to move its portly butt to keep up with the 31XX pound MP4-12C.

    This LSA receives a higher boost boost pulley, a cam upgrade, drag radials, and most importantly E85 fuel. Nothing too crazy about the mod list there.

    They run twice and the CTS-V gets the better of the MP4-12C in the first run partially thanks to a better start.

    For whatever reason the second run is not shown from the CTS-V's view but instead we get a chase view. The first perspective is out of focus and in the second view it looks close with the MP4-12C edging.

    Either way this is a potent Cadillac considering the mods and all the MP4-12C needs is a tune to decisively put things in its favor.

    6MT is even more impressive.
