The McLaren uses a turbo V8. Well that's what McLaren has on the stocks. It's the one from the MP4-12C, given a thorough re-work so it gets 727bhp from its 3.8 litres, with more emphasis on high-rev performance thanks to bigger turbos. Its compactness is a huge advantage when there are batteries and motors to be packaged. And turbo lag at middle-order rpms shouldn't be too much of a problem, because the instant thrust of the e-motor will mask it.
