Watch a McLaren, a Lamborghini, A Corvette, a Mustang, and many more all compete in the world’s greatest drag race.
At least, in terms of the number of entrants.
We have Motor Trend to thank for lining all these muscle and supercars up to see which one is the fastest in a quarter-mile drag race. They grabbed a dozen machines and took them down to an Air Force base where there was a landing strip wide enough to actually fit all 12 vehicles in a line and then launch them all to glory.
Not all of the 12 cars are contenders, as will become clear with their stats. Starting from the top, we have the McLaren 720S, a 710 hp, twin-turbo V8 machine that can get to sixty in under 3 seconds. Then there’s the Porsche 911 GT2 RS, the fastest and most powerful Porsche ever made. The GT2 RS can also hit 60 mph in less than three seconds.
The Lamborghini Huracan Performante is another contender, thanks to a big 5.2-L V10, 631 hp, and a superb AWD system. And who can forget the lovely Corvette ZR1, with its enormous 6.2-L supercharged V8 pumping out a race-leading 755 hp.
These four are the ones to watch. The rest of the field is filled with the Mustang GT, Kia Stinger, BMW M5, Honda Civic Type R, and more. All of them are great cars who anyone would be happy to own and drive, but none of them have the same kind of power and speed as the first four supercars we mentioned.
As soon as the green flag is waved, the Porsche, McLaren, and Lambo all shoot off the line. Sadly, the Corvette ZR1 can’t quite handle its power and falls behind the other three supercars. The GT2 RS pulls ahead of the pack, but the Huracan and 720S pull further ahead than the rest.
For most of the race, it seems like it’ll be between the McLaren and the Lamborghini. But then the Porsche comes from behind with a late burst of speed to just squeak by the Huracan Performante and take second place.
The McLaren 720S was always in the lead, and at no point did it ever seem like it would relinquish it. Once again, McLaren proves to be the fastest car that money can buy, although the Porsche and the Lamborghini were close runners-up.
