RDBLA’s Vik on why he’d take a McLaren 720s over a Lamborghini Aventador

It’s hard to go wrong when picking between a McLaren 720s or a Lamborghini Aventador, but Vik from RDBLA Auto Center knows what he’d choose.

Both vehicles will set you back several hundred thousand dollars, but the Aventador will be the more expensive option. For many people, they’d see the high price and assume it’s the better vehicle.

However, Vik would actually prefer the cheaper one, and laid out his reasoning behind that in a January 27 video.

The McLaren 720s is no slouch.

While he talked about some of the benefits the Aventador has over the McLaren, he still prefers the 720s.

“It’s just losing traction, so much more comfortable than the Aventador,” he said. “If you were comparing an Aventador S, which is newer like this, it is a little better.”

He talks about some of the changes the company has made to make Aventador ride a bit smoother and how the sounds are better, but it wasn’t enough for him to take it over the 720s.

Aventador or McLaren 720s?

“Me, I would take [McLaren 720s], but the Aventador looks, sound, you can’t beat it. No matter what you do you’re not gonna make it sound out of this world like an Aventador. You’re gonna put burbles and fire and pops and it’s just gonna annoy you and you’re gonna take it off.”

He does conclude by saying the McLaren is faster than the Aventador, so the speed demons out there will certainly appreciate that.

RDBLA is a very popular spot for celebrities to get their cars fixed up in Los Angeles, and they even go as far as calling themselves the premiere car shop in LA.

The shop is so big that they even offer their own merch for customers to purchase. RDBLA releases several YouTube videos a week that give viewers an inside look at some of the work they while also showing off the latest and greatest cars.

With so many different types of cars coming in each day, there’s no telling what viewers can expect with each video.

Will Need for Speed Hot Pursuit be available in 4k?

Since the game has been in existence for ten years since its original release, players can expect plenty of upgraded graphics to take full advantage of the latest hardware.

Sadly, it seems that the new Hot Pursuit game won’t be optimized specifically for next-gen consoles. That doesn’t mean that it won’t look great though. Fully-overhauled graphics, new reflection technology, better textures, and updated particle effects will all feature as part of the remaster.

Despite not being optimized for next-gen technology, players can still have the option of playing in 4K, depending on their platform of choice.

NFS HP Remaster 3Some players will be able to enjoy the remastered game in 4K, but it is platform-dependent.

Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch players will not have access to 4K, but will instead enjoy the game at 30fps in 1080p HD.

Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro players will have the option to run in 4K though, being able to choose between either a 1080p 60fps ‘performance’ mode or a 4K, 30fps ‘fidelity’ mode.

PC players can also get in on the 4K action, with the ability to play in 4K resolution up to a maximum of 60fps. This frame rate has been locked to ensure there is an even playing field in multiplayer, especially when taking advantage of the new cross-platform capabilities.

Does Need for Speed Hot Pursuit support cross-platform gaming?

One of the biggest new features for the remastered Hot Pursuit is the inclusion of cross-platform capability. This means for the first time ever, Hot Pursuit players will be able to challenge their friends regardless of their platform.

Xbox, PlayStation, PC, and Nintendo Switch players can all compete head-to-head in multiplayer races and challenges, bringing together the Need For Speed Hot Pursuit community like never before.

NFS Hot Pursuit PorschePrevious DLC such as the ‘Porsche Unleashed’ pack will be included with the base game.
