Twin turbo technology was once the rarity preserved for a most exotic rides and a very phrase was typically emblazoned all over the body as if to tell competitors at a stop light, can’t touch this.
Now it is become the norm, but that fact of supercar life has left enthusiasts up in arms arguing whether it is really made cars any better or detracted from the experience.
Thankfully YouTube channel TheSupercarDriver has gotten the nice collection of the today’s hottest twin-turbo beats together for the good old fashioned challenge.
If this won’t prove a power of the exhaust-fed turbine, nothing will. Though those spools may not be large, and the hp they provide their downsized engines with is and the rather flat torque curve they offer has humiliated enough celebrity supercars that they have proven their worth.
Most importantly, they preserve the most precious resource, hp, in an era where large engine face the outright ban. On the other hand, there is something missing from the experience.
AMG has done well to nail down its proper rumbling sound despite a muting turbochargers, and the same can’t be said for the rest of the competition. And then there is the matter of turbo lag, but that is something the launch control clutch dump at 4,000 RPM can mitigate or quell entirely.
And the results get much more interesting and when a previous generation McLaren supercar takes on a relatively new Ferrari 488 GTB, surprising us and giving that extra long tail and a grip it provides more justification.
