Hyper800 at Virginia International Raceway
The HyperCar Development Team took the Hyper800 MP4-12C to Virginia International Raceway for some shakedown testing and analysis of the vehicle programming. This testing of the 827HP 12C provided insight into the capabilities and technical aptitude of this engineering group. Compared to the stock 12C testing, the team’s driver was able to reach speeds of 179 mph on the back straightaway versus struggling to break 167 mph in the stock 12C. Based on video footage, the best lap time was 1:57.10 (less than favorable track temps) versus never breaking 2:09 in the stock 12C. Testing of the various Handling and Power modes on the Dynamic Panel provided incredible telemetry data that has aided in engineering of the higher Phases developed by the HCD Team. All modes are further enhanced and appropriately complements each specific power level.
