As we are always looking at the fights of quite common cars, let’s now get far beyond the boundaries of what we define as ‘common’ as for today’s fight we have invited crazy models like 2012 McLaren MP4-12C and the incredible luxury baby 2012 Lexus LFA.

These two cars have really high prices. And when we say really high – we mean just abnormally high! New McLaren costs about $234,000, while new Lexus LFA has a price of $375,000. Though, it is not that surprising, these cars are not prepared for simple commercial selling, they are supercars! In terms of the core new McLaren has a 3.8-Liter Turbocharged V8 engine, while new Lexus got the 4.8-Liter V10. However new McLaren ahs a power output of 593-hp, while new Lexus is capable of only 553-hp. So we see, that such a difference in volume and cylinders doesn’t mean the victory in terms of power output.

In the end, if we have to look at the performance, we think that new McLaren MP4-12C is a much better toy than new Lexus, as it is a true sports car!
