Performance

Main article: 2018 McLaren X2/Performance

With its performance map based on that of the McLaren MP4-31, the 2018 McLaren X2 excels in top speed, handling, and acceleration, with a maximum real total speed of 316.8 MPH/510.1 km/h at PRO with Tuning Kit boost on that can be reached in as fast as 2.3 seconds. It is slightly improved in the nitro efficiency department, with 7/13/16, also again compensated for with a higher raw top speed compared to its closest rivals. Just like the MP4-31, though, the X2 skids frequently and can often spin uncontrollably while exiting ramps, but with a much higher frequency than normal, making it even more of a "high risk + high reward" vehicle than others. The X2's very high instability is due to its extremely sharp steering radius, allowing it to take many corners without drifting. Its drift radius is noticeably wider than those of its rivals. With all statistics considered, the X2 currently ranks as the best car in the game, ahead of the Apollo Intensa Emozione, McLaren MP4-31, Aston Martin Vulcan, and Arrinera Hussarya GT.

Usage

Being one of the best S Class cars, the McLaren X2 can perform extremely well in TLEs, being able to achieve a top 25 easily with some skill. It is also the best McLaren car to date, topping the previous best McLaren MP4-31, and will hence dominate the leaderboard should a McLaren-only event appear.

However, due to it requiring 64 Custom Racing Engines to be fully upgraded, the Apollo Intensa Emozione may remain as the best vehicle usable overall factoring in upgrade difficulty. In addition, the AM Vulcan is not burdened by the restrictive availability of both the X2 and Apollo IE and the token-only upgrades of the latter.

The X2 can also perform extremely well in Multiplayer at PRO rank. At the start, its superior acceleration gives it an advantage that prevents other cars from knocking it down, and its nearly identical (if not superior) top speed compared to other cars commonly found in the 1800+ bracket - Aston Martin Vulcan, Apollo Intensa Emozione, McLaren MP4-31, Arrinera Hussarya GT - allows it to hold its lead. If driven skillfully, it can reach very high placements in the Champion League and even make it as far as the Elite League.

The X2 also has some usage in Multiplayer even when not fully PRO. Its fairly low starting rank allows it to reach a high speed at ranks 1670 and above. Although it is slower than the Apollo at any rank below 1800, the X2 can pull out wins regularly against nearly all other cars due to its all-around good stats. Because of its superb acceleration, the X2 performs best against the Apollo on shorter tracks when MP-tuned. Here are a few useful non-PRO Multiplayer tunes:

  • 10-0-10-0 (Rank 1672): Real speed= 490.4 km/h (304.6 mph), Displayed speed= 562.6 km/h (349.6 mph)
  • 10-0-10-2 (Rank 1679): Real speed= 491.7 km/h (305.6 mph), Displayed speed= 563.8 km/h (350.3 mph)
  • 10-0-10-5 (Rank 1697): Real speed= 494.2 km/h (307.1 mph), Displayed speed= 566.6 km/h (352.1 mph)
  • 10-0-10-10 (Rank 1744): Real speed= 500.3 km/h (310.7 mph), Displayed speed= 573.9 km/h (356.6 mph)

Despite this, if possible one should try to PRO the McLaren X2 because the 1800+ rank is where its potential shines the brightest. In addition, top speed cannot be upgraded independently of handling and/or acceleration, which leads to unnecessary rank addition.
