Top speed

Its top speed is electronically limited to 217 mph, because, McLaren says, they’re after all-out street and track performance, not top speed.

1/4 mile

Even less likely to see use is the button on the left spoke of the wheel marked DRS (drag reduction system), which trims out the rear wing to, well, reduce aerodynamic drag.

Nurburgring time

Those discs are pinched by six-piston front and four-piston rear monoblock calipers and provide stellar stopping force and none of the low-speed squealing common to carbon-ceramic brakes.
