11. McLaren 4.0-liter M840T Twin Turbo
When McLaren introduced its 650S model featuring a brand new 3.8-liter V8 unit, the whole automotive world was caught by storm. The combination of McLaren design, a perfectly tuned chassis, and the turbocharged V8 was unbeatable. Today, there’s a new model called the 720S that features a brand new 4.0-liter V8 with the same basic construction. But it has over 40 percent new parts and components.
And it’s sublimely good. Its power output is 710 HP and 568 lb-ft of torque, more than enough to launch the new McLaren sports car to fantastic speeds. McLaren is one of the first companies to introduce downsized and turbocharged V8 engines. And with this unit, they prove this famous British sports car is still at the forefront of V8 technology.
