Well any speed contest is technically a race to the police.

I raced up on it to see what it was. Once I realized it was a Hooptie I mean McLaren I floored it...beating him to the red light in my Trailblazer. He was in awe as I passed him...raising his hands up.. that's when I knew he had enough. Then I drove off into the sunset.

LOL

I just PM'd Warstud that yesterday, having never seen a McLaren, I witnessed a McLaren rear end a SUV in Lansing (true story, the irony of it all)!

I had to google McLaren to verify what I saw. The driver didn't seem too worked up as he exited the gull wing door.

If this was Warstud in my GM SUV accident, "he" is a very cute young woman grin

This color, but I cannot confirm the model:

It was probably an MC12, F1's are very rare.

They are nice cars I have seen a couple in burnt orange or whatever its called cruising around.

Right now Tesla seems to be the car to have, they are everywhere!

You were in a Civic, and when vtec kicked in, your were gone....Right?

I haven't seen one of these on the road yet. I have raced one in Need for Speed Hot Pursuit PC.

I don't get this thread?

Only illegal if you're caught in the act. Street racing may be dangerous and downright stupid at times, but fun nonetheless.

Considering that an MC12 is a million dollar Maserati, I'm assuming you meant to say MP4-12C. That is the "cheap" McClaren that cost around 250k.
