AMS is known for making big power and low ETs with cars that are already pretty darn quick from the factory. The Alpha Omega GT-R comes to mind, which recently ran a standing quarter mile in 7.7 seconds at 186 mph.

Never content to leave good enough alone, the Chicago-based tuning shop has now had its way with the engine software on the McLaren 12C, bestowing the English supercar with an extra 100 horsepower and 125 pound-feet of torque. When paired with a set of Nitto drag radials and 93-octane fuel it makes for a 10.1-second quarter-mile at 138 mph, numbers that AMS claims make it both the fastest and quickest 12C in the world.

However, all that extra power doesn’t come cheap, as AMS is asking for $6,000 for a single remap service. But considering how the McLaren cost just under a quarter-million bucks when new, a couple grand shouldn’t be much of an issue.

Overall, it’s quite impressive to think those kinds of gains are accomplished with such simple modifications. Odds are we’ll be seeing new upgrades for the 12C from the AMS crew very soon. Only a few tenths separate the current tune from a single-digit quarter-mile, which means the world’s first nine-second 12C is probably just a few well-engineered engine mods away.
