A comparison of the acceleration of the new Mclaren MP4 12C with the old legendary Mclaren F1. The Mp4-12C is driven by Jenson Button. The F1 is XP5 on its record run at ehra lessein, driven by Andy Wallace.(taken from my other vid) From the vid: MP4 -12C 0-100mph (160kmh) 6.0s. 0-150mph (240kmh) 13.8s 0-186mph (300kmh) 25.1s the F1 is slightly faster than the 12C up to 240kmh, and then pulls away from 270kmh. At 330kmh, the 12C is only doing 305kmh. NB Car speedos often overestimate the speed, whereas the GPS on the F1 is guiness certified accurate. Used edge detection effects to discover the speed displayed on the F1's GPS. The last digit changes too quickly to be resolved, so when it says 270 the F1 is actually doing 27x kmh.
